How Industrial SSD Make the Automation Industry Better

Traditional mechanical HDDs are too slow and perform erratically. Although ordinary consumer SSDs are fast and can meet people's requirements in daily use, they are far from the strict requirements of industrial automation for SSDs. Renice industrial solid-state drive can well meet the use requirements of automated SSDs.

Foreword


With the development of the industrial automation industry, the concepts of Industry 4.0 and Industry 5.0 have entered people's field of vision one after another. Whether it is Industry 4.0 or Industry 5.0, industrial automation technology is inseparable. And when it comes to industrial automation, people always think of another word - Big Data.

Big data is one of the biggest features of the industrial automation industry. So, how to process massive data in the Automation Industry?

Traditional mechanical HDDs are too slow and perform erratically. Although ordinary consumer SSDs are fast and can meet people's requirements in daily use, they are far from the strict requirements of industrial automation for SSDs. Renice industrial solid-state drive can well meet the use requirements of automated SSDs.


What is Industrial SSD?

Different from ordinary consumer SSDs, industrial-grade SSDs are composed of industrial grade main control chips and industrial grade Nand Flash chips. Although from the appearance, the interface, product size, and product shape of the industrial SSD are the same as ordinary SSD. But the application fields of industrial SSD and ordinary SSD are completely different.

Industrial SSDs are widely used in harsh environments such as automation, automotive, industrial control, security monitoring, network terminals, electric power, medical care, and aviation.

Features of Industrial SSD

1. Stability

Stability is the most important feature of industrial SSD. In harsh industrial automation applications, storage products may face extremely high or low temperature working environments, which requires industrial SSD to operate in -40°C~+85°C or even wider environments.
It is also required that industrial SSD can keep working in harsh environments such as shock, vibration, and humidity.

2.Security

As mentioned earlier, big data is one of the biggest features of the industrial automation industry. Faced with the processing of massive data, data security has become critical, so there are strict requirements for the security of storage products.

Data encryption, secure erasure, power failure protection, data destruction (logical destruction, physical destruction), etc., are the most basic functions of industrial SSDs.

3.Durability

Different industries judge the reliability of SSD differently. For example, notebook computers have relatively low requirements on SSD durability, usually only requiring a service life of 3 years, so TLC Nand Flash can meet the requirements of consumer SSDs.

For industrial automation, the replacement and maintenance of industrial automation equipment will cost a lot, so the less replacement and maintenance, the better. This requires industrial automation equipment to use SSDs that are more durable and have a longer service life. Therefore, MLC and SLC Nand Flash are commonly used in industrial SSDs to provide more reliable SSD performance.

Test of industrial SSD

1. High and Low Temperature Test (-40°C~+85°C)
2. Power Failure Protection Test (Renice r-Backup® Power Failure Protection)
3. P/E Cycle Test (3,000 P/E Cycles for MLC, 60,000 P/E Cycles for SLC)
4. Humidity, Vibration, Shock Test, etc


How Industrial SSD Make the Automation Industry Better?

For the automation industry, the processing of massive data is inseparable from stable, safe and durable storage devices. Industrial SSD is one of the best choices.
Just like custom-made automation SSD, industrial SSD can meet all the requirements of the automation industry for SSD:

1.Work in Harsh Environments (shock, vibration, dust, humidity, high-low operating temperature, etc.)
2. Compact Size, High Read/Write Performance, Large Capacity
3. Guarantee Data Security

Although industrial automation is a big industry and involves a lot of technologies, only when the most basic data storage is guaranteed, can the development of the industrial automation industry be free from worries.

As a leader in industrial SSDs, Renice is committed to providing high-performance automotive SSD for the industrial automation industry. Renice keeps up with the advancement of industrial automation and continuously innovates technologies to meet the technical requirements of more stable, safer and more durable automotive SSD.

Suffice it to say, industrial automation makes Renice SSD better. At the same time, Renice also makes industrial automation better.

TUV Rheinland Robot Integrator Program

TUV Rheinland Robot Integrator Program

The industry's first comprehensive Robot Integrator Program saves robot integrators significant time and cost investments by allowing them to mark each cell compliant with ANSI/RIA R15.06 with the TUV Rheinland Mark. As opposed to a traditional certification or an on-site field labeling, TÜV Rheinland's Robot Integrator Program certifies the knowledge and skill-set of robot integrators in addition to testing robotic cells and processes against ANSI/RIA R15.06. This reduces the need for frequent onsite or off site testing and allows manufacturers to apply a single TÜV Rheinland label to multiple cells. The Robot Integrator Program individually assesses a robot integrator's understanding of the ANSI/RIA R15.06 standard along with the ability to consistently produce compliant robot cells. Following the requirements and procedures of the new program will enable robot integrators to produce individually compliant robotic cells under one serialized TÜV Rheinland Mark, which meets the national electric code and allows acceptance by Authorities Having Jurisdiction (AHJ) and end users.
