PRESS RELEASE: Delkin Announces the Toughest CF Card Ever Built, CombatFlash™
Poway, Calif., February 20, 2010 - Delkin Devices, Inc. launches CombatFlash, a new line of ruggedized, waterproof and exceedingly fast CompactFlash memory cards. CombatFlash memory is built tough to excel in situations and environments that exceed a normal memory card’s durability and performance. Each US manufactured card is subjected to rigorous quality testing, then put through a patent pending Tekta® infusion process that protects the card and its contents from extreme temperatures, underwater submersion, humidity, rain, shock, dust, impact, fungus, vibration, rust and more.
Delkin’s CombatFlash memory cards offer the only completely ruggedized and high-speed solution for professional photographers. With patent pending technology and design, CombatFlash memory cards are the only consumer card built to comply with MIL-STD-810, the extreme environmental testing conditions approved by the US Department of Defense. This military standard addresses a broad range of environmental conditions that include: low pressure for altitude testing; exposure to high and low temperatures plus temperature shock (both operating and in storage); rain (including wind blown and freezing rain); humidity; fungus; salt fog for rust testing; sand and dust exposure; explosive atmosphere; leakage; acceleration; shock and transport shock; gunfire vibration; and random vibration.
“We developed our Tekta™ infusion process to achieve the most ruggedized, waterproof CF card possible,” said Martin Wood, Delkin’s CEO. “We know the abuse photographers put their gear through and we’re innovating to meet that demand; whether they’re shooting in the Arctic or documenting a story in the Sahara, our CombatFlash cards are built to endure.”
In addition to extreme durability and unmatched reliability, CombatFlash attains exceedingly high speeds, up to 91MB/s – 625X. Every memory card is manufactured with high grade NAND flash, advanced controller design, and quality control guidelines based on ISO:9001 standards. Additionally, built-in ECC (Error Correction Code) automatically detects and corrects any errors that might occur during data transfer. Delkin’s CombatFlash CF cards are fully compliant with current CompactFlash specifications with support for Ultra DMA (UDMA) mode 6. Users can take advantage of industry leading high speeds to capture high resolution RAW images and full HD video, making recording faster and easier than ever.
