MTBF

(Mean Time Between Failure) The average time a component works without failure. The MTBF is the hours of observation divided by the number of failures. See MSBF and MTBSO.

It is not unusual to have sensors in a system that have an extremely low MTBF. The temperature sensor in our list falls into this special category.

1.4M hours MTBF / 1.2M hours MTBF: Provides the highest level of reliability for 24x7 and up to 100% duty applications, for the WD RE SAS and SATA, respectively.;
* A 10-year MTBF rate and stability to 0.1 percent of FSO over an 18-month period, translating into less downtime, fewer test reruns, more time between calibrations and more confidence in pressure data.
The disadvantage is a decrease in the overall mean-time-between-failure (MTBF).
The modules contain solid-state and passive microwave circuitry, and exhibit mean time between failure (MTBF) at or above 100,000 hours.
