The ASRFFD35/T is a rugged, high capacity flash disk drive embedded with Asine Photon series technology and designed for use as plug-in unit into Asine family of rugged solutions, or in any enclosure for standard 3½“ or 5¼ device, customer’s enclosure, or any other removable mass storage application. The ASRFFD35/T stores up to 2000 gigabytes of data. The unit has no spin up or seeks time.

RUGGEDIZED for operation in severe environments - where extreme temperatures, shock, vibration, humidity, and air pressure are common – the ASRFFD35/T is field proven in “on-the-move” operation in tracked and wheeled vehicles, as well as airborne applications. Since no warm up time is required, near instant readiness is provided at all operating temperatures. The sealed housing encompasses the entire drive enclosure, including electronics. This isolates the drive from shock and vibration, while protecting it from high humidity and changes in altitude.
