All MEMKOR SSDs are designed with MIL-STD-810 requirements in mind, as our mission is to focus on solid state storage solutions capable to operate anywhere in the world and under any circumstances. While we offer commercial versions, we design, select components, build and test (and test, and test) to ensure these are truly industrial SSDs with long life, no maintenance and solid health monitoring capabilities. All industrial version SSDs are conformally coated, are built using special Bill of Material and undergo through the rigorous multi-day production testing spanning across SSD operational functions and specified deployment environment.
While hardening the SSD through the design and manufacturing to withstand harsh temperatures, humidity and altitude practically does not require architectural differentiation among MEMKOR industrial grade SSDs, meeting vibration and shock requirements lead to different levels of ruggedization in the design approach. As a result, Memkor ORANGE and BLUE Series SSDs comply with applications up to 16.3 G RMS vibration profile. Should you look for higher resilience levels you may look at MEMKOR M+ Ruggedized BLACK series SSDs successfully tested to 30 G RMS vibration levels.
The standard SATA connectors are rated for a very low vibration level (6gRMS) and a low number of insertions (~125). Addressing both issues at the computer system design level, and with no change to SSD, requires extra engineering time, increases hardware footprint and cost. As an alternative, MEMKOR offers two options.
The HiVibe© connector built using field proven Hyperboloid technology. It eliminates the need for extra effort and extra hardware and provides virtually unlimited number of SSD insertions as well as ruggedizes the SATA plug-receptacle connection to 30gRMS vibration level.
The Smiths Interconnect Nebula connector uses hyperboloid contacts to achieve immunity to shock and vibration fretting. The Nebula connector supports up to 100,000 mating cycles and is rated for operation up to 30g vibration.
Both the HiVibe or Nebula are available as an option on the ORANGE, BLUE, and BLACK series 2.5" SSDs.
MEMKOR BLACK Series SSD provides the highest level of ruggedization suitable for the most adverse environments known to man and machines.
A standard SATA connector is typically rated for 6gRMS vibration and ~125 insertion cycles. MEMKOR offers the option of a HiVibe SATA Connector (rated for more than 30gRMS and 20,000 insertion cycles, or a Nebula connector rated for 30g and 100,000 insertion cycles)
