Understanding Industrial SD for Parking Technologies

 

Parking technologies have progressed far beyond simply turning a car between two lines. Public parking facilities and parking assistance features inside cars have progressed to include advanced technologies that make parking easier, safer, and more efficient. Industrial Secure Digital( SD), cards are a common choice for these systems, thanks to their broad compatibility and reliable formats. The industrial grade rating means that the cards are able to tolerate the extreme operating conditions that may be encountered in parking situations, from temperature extremes to high levels of shock and vibration. Here is a closer look at what you need to know about how SD cards are used in parking technologies.

 

Background of Industrial SD Cards

SD cards are a widely used form of non-volatile memory. They can be found in everything from smartphones to airplanes and are available in multiple grades and capacities. Part of the reason for their popularity is how easy they are to use. They can simply be slipped into the SD card slot that is found on nearly every kind of device. Another reason for the popularity of SD cards is the fact that they are all manufactured according to specific standards set by the Secure Digital Association.

 

Industrial grade SD cards are designed to withstand rugged operating conditions. They have extended temperature ranges—from -40 degrees C to 85 degrees C—and they can withstand stronger than normal levels of shock and vibration. They feature SLC flash memory, which is the most reliable and fastest form of flash, as it stores only one bit of data per cell.

 

Industrial SD for Parking Technologies

One of the most popular uses of SD cards in parking technologies is for parking cameras. Cars that have a backup camera or other video parking module in the dash frequently rely on embedded SD cards in their design. In addition, automated parking garages usually have SD cards in the mechanism that parks and retrieves the cars. The payment systems in parking garages and in some parking meters frequently use SD cards as well, particularly in systems that take credit cards. The use of industrial cards in these systems reduces the risk of failures caused by environmental and operating conditions.
