Exceptional Performance and Quality

Exceptional Performance and Quality

A proprietary servo-writing process optimizes tape tracking and helps ensure accurate read/write operations, enabling best-in-class Position Error Signal (PES) performance to minimize servo off-track errors and improve overall transfer rates. This results in breakthrough servo performance that lays the groundwork for greater advancement.

 

Robust Cartridge Construction

Robust Cartridge Construction

The patented corner snap keeps the leader pin in place and the cartridge tightly closed to prevent error-causing debris from entering the cartridge, thus helping to ensure that the tape flows evenly for maximum read/write capability. The unique three-piece tape spool design distributes stress more.
