SKU: 4479753 IBM 1/2 Inch 3480 Tape
The IBM ½ inch 3480 Tape Cartridge provides reliability and durability at a astonishing low cost.
IBMs 3480 tape offers an efficient rate of transfer by which data can be stored in the cartridge's one-half-inch wide chromium dioxide tape, or retrieved from it. With 18 recording tracks, the 3480 tape achieves a linear data recording density of about 38,000 bytes per inch -- six times the density used in current IBM tape drives.
The 18 tracks of data can be recorded and read across the one-half-inch wide 3480 tape by the thin-film recording head. The tape flies over the recording head on a cushion of air, resulting in reduced wear to both the tape and the head.
IBMs ½ inch 3480 tape has a capacity of 200 MB and as always is covered by IBMs warranty policy.
