Company and client data is the lifeblood of today’s businesses. That’s why millions of data center managers, IT professionals and computer users look to Imation for the proven quality, reliability and performance they need to reliably manage, store and secure their valuable information.
Imation brings to the data center the same proven technology that provides inventory control for many of the world’s most successful companies. DataGuard rf Volser Labels with RFID are a design and engineering breakthrough that puts the range, reliability and accuracy of RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) at your fingertips. It helps you reduce the risk of lost and misfiled tapes and improves both efficiency and reliability.
Imation has coupled passive RFID tags with a specially printed volume-and-serial-number (or “Volser”) identification in one robust label, which is then securely applied to each tape cartridge in the data center. The user employs a UHF reader (such as the Imation DataGuard rf Handheld Reader) to scan these cartridges (either individually, or up to 20 cartridges within a DataGuard transport case) as they arrive and exit a location. The system automatically logs each cartridge transaction into a database linked to the customer’s tape management system.
Imation Volser labels with integrated RFID technology enable UHF readers to quickly read LTO, 3590, 9x40, T10K and 3592 tape cartridges with 100% accuracy and reliability. Now data center personnel can more efficiently track every tape cartridge, ensuring greater confidence, reliability and control in the data center.
With Imation DataGuard rf Volser Labels with RFID, your data works harder and rests easier.
Reduce your risk of lost and misfiled tapes: Now you can easily account for the location of any cartridge, whether in your data center, in transit or at an off-site vault facility.
Improve your efficiency and reliability: Not only can you scan faster, you also avoid the mistakes that come with bar code technology; you’ll get 100% accuracy and automatic watchlist notifications for misfiled tapes.
Take inventory more often: Knowing exactly what’s in your library is no longer an impossible dream; you’ll be able to inventory more often and do it in a fraction of the time and with fewer resources than it takes now.
Ensure compliance: Complying with multiple government standards, industry regulations and other legal requirements for data storage can be challenging; DataGuard rf Volser Labels with RFID can help ensure you meet those requirements.
Limitless flexibility: RFID-Volser labels integrate advanced ultra high frequency (UHF) Gen 2 technology (which delivers increased read range and 100% accuracy) with bar code, color and serial number identification for limitless flexibility.
Custom-designed label antenna: Extends read ranges up to 6 feet for a single cartridge and up to 2 feet for 20 cartridges in a DataGuard transport case; also increases accuracy, as each label is tuned to be read both straight on and at angles of up to 45 degrees.
Multiple label sizes: Available in three different label types, each with the optimal antenna design for maximum read range.
• LTO, T1000 (17mm x 79mm)
• 3592 (12.04mm x 88.6mm)
• 3xxx, 9xxx (12.34mm x 79.45mm)
RFID identification: Each label includes an “RF” designator for visual differentiation from non-RFID Volser labels.
AquaGuard™ surface: An added advantage to using Imation RFID labels is that each label features an AquaGuard surface that will not wash away and is smudge- and smear-resistant; the AquaGuard surface locks the ink in place, extending the label’s life.
