Understanding Commercial Temperature Range Electronics

 

One of the most significant differentiators between commercial and industrial grade products is their temperature range. Commercial temperature range electronics typically operate at more moderate temperatures than industrial applications, so they usually do not need to use embedded flash storage that can handle extended temperature ranges. Here is what you need to know.

 

Commercial Temperature Ranges

Flash storage solutions are divided into commercial and industrial categories based on their temperature ranges, among other factors. These temperature ranges refer to the temperatures at which the storage solutions can be operated, as well as the temperatures at which they can be stored. Within these temperature ranges, the storage solution is expected to work at its peak performance level without any decline in functioning due to the temperature.

 

For commercial temperature range electronics, the operating temperature range is usually 0 degrees C to 70 degrees C. Outside of those temperatures on either end of the scale, there may be some loss of function—or the device may stop working entirely.

 

Electronics Produced with Commercial Temperature Ranges

Electronics that are produced for commercial temperature ranges include devices like cell phones, digital cameras, mobile media players, and digital voice recorders. As the name suggests, commercial temperature range electronics are developed for the consumer marketplace and individual users. Pricing is one of the most important concerns with these kinds of products, and since commercial grade storage is often more affordable, it is the right fit for these electronic products. Further, few people operate their electronics outside of the commercial temperature range on a regular basis, so any concerns about functionality are minimal to non-existent.

 

These operating demands are different from those of industrial applications, which are more likely to be exposed to temperature extremes. The operating temperature range of industrial grade storage solutions is -40 to 85 degrees C, in order to account for the different operating conditions of these kinds of applications. Although commercial users seldom have need for this ruggedness in their flash storage, it is essential for users in industrial fields, including healthcare, transportation, and embedded computing.
