OneTouch External Hard Drive Operating Temperatures

August 19th, 2009

Hard Drive Temperature The OneTouch Drive feels much warmer than what the spec calls for…should we worry about this?

Problem:
The specifications on the datasheet for my OneTouch drive shows the operating temperature at: 5°C to 35°C (41°F to 95°F)

Cause:
The drive feels warmer than what is stated on the datasheet.

Solution:
The temperature specification identified is not the physical temperature of the drive.  It is the temperature of the room where the drive is. The OneTouch drive will feel much warmer to the touch and can reach temperatures of approximately 55oC and remain within specification.
