How Long Do Memory Cards Last?
The most important factor for the lifetime of flash memory are the write/erase cycles, i.e. the amount of data written to it. Thus, it strongly depends on the duty times in the logger. Other factors such as climate conditions may further influence the lifetime.
Vector recommends exchanging memory cards regularly, depending on duty times.
In the IP65-proof loggers GL1010 and GL2010 the memory cards are mounted inside the housing, inaccessible from the outside. To exchange the memory card the housing must be opened, which leads to loss of the water and dust protection according to IP65. Vector offers the service of exchanging the memory card and reassembling the housing with preserving the IP65 protection.
