Imation 9840 20/80GB Tape Cartridge

Imation's 91270 is a Black Watch 9840 format tape cartridge. It has a native data storage capacity of 20GB which can be expanded up to 80GB when compressed.. It uses a mid-point load dual hub system in which the tape rides on a cushion of air that virtually eliminates friction between the tape and guides, enabling the fastest search speeds of any tape storage system. The Imation 91270 tape cartridge uses Polyethylene naphthalate (PEN) as substrate and with internal cartridge guiding the tape never leaves the cartridge for improved data integrity.
Exclusive Imation backcoating gives Black Watch Tape Cartridges the performance edge by dissipating static and wound-in debris for reduced errors, and by minimizing tape compression for improved tape stability. These cartridges also feature a precision tape spool for uniform tape wind and reduced tape edge damage, plus unique FlashGard weld for added cartridge strength.

The Imation Black Watch 9840 cartridge incorporates a number of innovations. Imation's industry-leading media technology - including servo writing, flying tape guides and metal particulate formulations - enable tremendous improvements in performance.

A Media Information Region, recorded directly onto the Imation Black Watch 9840 media, documents and tracks the cartridge's history of use, greatly improving user's ability to monitor, maintain and manage the drives and media.

While delivering significantly improved performance, the 9840 platform also protects user's existing investment in library infrastructure as the Imation Black Watch 9840 cartridge matches the 3480 and 3490 form factor, and is compatible with StorageTek automated libraries.
