In business today, information access and capacity demands are a growing challenge for efficient, cost-effective data management. Now, one storage technology radically redefines performance: 9840 half-inch tape technology. The Black Watch 9840 Half-Inch Tape Cartridge is at the heart of the solution, with its revolutionary, totally internal tape path design and a familiar 3480-based form factor. The 9840 tape cartridge draws on the long history of Imation half-inch tape development and combines "the best of the best" from current solutions with brand new innovations. Offering access speeds that rival random access, the 9840 tape cartridge sets new standards for half-inch tape performance with proven enterprise-strength reliability. Access times are decreased to 12 seconds due to the dual hub, mid-point load design. 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.

  • Mid-point load dual-hub design saves time by delivering faster access to data. Searches start from the middle of the tape, not the end
  • Metal Particulate (MP) tape with proprietary Imation backcoating dissipates static and minimises tape compression for optimum performance and reliability
  • Internal cartridge guiding, means the tape never leaves the cartridge for improved data integrity and an average access time of 12 seconds (includes load time)
  • Convenient form factor based on 3480/3490E cartridges preserves investment in existing library equipment
  • The Media Information Region (MIR) contains directory and performance information to optimise the management of media and drives
  • Factory-written servo pattern keeps heads aligned on data tracks for precise data reading/writing and improved reliability
