Since their invention in 1980, memory cards or Secure Digital (SD) have remained among the most inexpensive, reliable, and successful storage solutions available in the world. Today, they are commonly used to store text, audio, videos, and pictures in a variety of portable devices like smartphones and cameras.
Since consumer micro SD cards cost less and have become a huge part of several everyday applications, they are also frequently used for industrial purposes that they were originally not built for. Industrial grade micro SD cards are designed to deliver reliability, longevity, endurance, and wide temperature range for numerous industrial applications, such as servers, gateways, network equipment, action cameras, surveillance, and drones.
Consumer micro SD cards are designed for non-business, family, and personal use. Industrial micro SD cards, on the other hand, are intended for the manufacturing, design, delivery, packaging, and distribution of services and goods. This is why industrial-grade micro SD cards require high-quality, reliable, and tough components that can perform consistently over long periods of time to provide minimal downtime, maximum availability, and better ROI.
Generally, industrial applications are not only mission critical, but are also life and safety critical. As more and more industrial systems require little to no human intervention and become autonomous, the timely access and the efficiency of data storage, delivery, and breakdown of information have never been more vital.
Since the industrial requirements are immensely different from personal use, customers in the industrial sector don’t really factor in the immediate short-term costs. Rather, they base their buying decisions on the total cost of a solution.
When considering an industrial micro SD card, keep in mind the extensive range of usage scenarios and the diversity of industries. Consider how the memory card will be used and for which specific applications.
