Model 5622 9 track drives offer the high performance and reliability of
mainframe and minicomputer 9 track systems in a sleek, low-profile package that
fits beautifully into the modern office. What's more, they run so quietly that
their operational noise level is too low to be measured in a normal office
Performance is maximized for desktop computers by 1 MB of built-in cache, a
level of caching commonly seen only in larger, more expensive tape drives. This
ensures a constant, steady flow of data to your host system; up to 22 MB per
minute sustained, with burst rates up to 1 MB per second.
Tape tension is controlled by a microprocessor and custom reel motors--at
tensions below those of most other drives, meaning minimal wear on your tapes.
Using an exclusive adaptive read retry logic, the microprocessor automatically
increases tape tension to improve the readability of marginal and creased
tapes--just to the point that allows these tapes to be read. The result is
extremely gentle and precise tape handling, keeping new tapes "newer" and
letting old tapes be used with greater reliability.
The Model 5622 tape drive can be used anywhere--the auto ranging power supply
automatically adjusts to all standard line voltages worldwide. This, plus small
size and weight, make these drives perfect partners anywhere in the world.
