The Locomotive market requires highly reliable flash storage devices which can withstand unexpected power interrupts, wide operating temperature ranges, high shock & vibration and endure many write cycles over a life span of up to 10 years or more. The Cactus Industrial Grade products meet all of these requirements while also providing a locked-BOM (Bill-Of-Material) so what is qualified over many months is the same product which is received in production.
Many of our products appeal to Locomotive. Learn more about our product lines or begin browsing all Cactus products.

SLC, pSLC, MLC and TLC Differences - Does Your Flash Storage SSD Make the Grade?
Not all SSD are created equal. There are enormous differences in ability to work at temperature, in poor power environments, under high duty cycles. When talking enormous, an Industrial Grade SSD can have as much as 300 times (yes, 300 times, not 300%) more write endurance cycles per physical block of data.

In the world of Mil Spec SSD and flash storage devices, the high shock, vibration, wide temperature range, long life cycle, locked Bill-Of-Material requirements are easily met with the Cactus Technologies’ Industrial Grade Flash Storage Offering.
Advantages of Industrial Flash Storage for Transportation Industry
Logistics required to transport goods and people around the globe is generally taken for granted by people outside this industry. When a person or cargo can arrive within 48 hours to almost anywhere on the planet, some sophisticated systems are performing behind the scenes. There are many different methods of transport including Container Ship, Railway,...

Read Disturb Handling for Cactus Technologies' Flash Storage Devices
Mostly read embedded OEM applications should consider the read disturb issue in addition to the endurance of the NAND memory when making a decision on which grade of flash memory to use.
An Overview of Pseudo-SLC NAND
Pseudo-SLC NAND uses MLC NAND in a single bit per cell mode, thereby giving it >6 times the endurance of the same MLC NAND cell used in its traditional two bit per cell operation. Cactus OEM Grade uses this pSLC and is an upgrade from our Commercial Grade which uses MLC NAND.
Write Abort Handling for Cactus Technologies Industrial-Grade Flash-Storage Products
Cactus Technologies industrial-grade flash storage products are designed to operate in environments where temperature, shock, vibration and voltage fluctuations occur often and can cause abnormal operations on the device.
