IBM 7208 Family of Tape Drives
IBM 7208 Tape Drive Family
|IBM 7208-002, 2.3 GB External 8mm Tape Drive - Refurbished|
The IBM 7208-002 is a 2.3-GB external 8-mm tape drive. It provides additional function and enhancement capabilities to the Application System/400* (AS/400*) B, C, D, E, and F except D02 and E02 via the Removable Media Device Attachment feature (#2621). Alternate IPL is not supported on 9402-D04 and D06 and 9404 B, C, D10, and D20 models. Attachment to AS/400* 9406 B models is via Magnetic Storage Device feature (#2611) using RPQ 841990 and OS/400* Version 2 Release 2. Alternate IPL is not supported on 9406 B models.
||IBM 7208-012, 5.0 GB External 8mm Tape Drive - Refurbished |
The IBM 7208-012 is a 5.0-GB External 8-mm tape drive. Model 012 features a media capacity of 5.0 GB per cartridge and a sustained data transfer rate of 500 KB per second. The 7208 Model 012 features data compression hardware using an adaptation of IBM's IDRC algorithm which provides an effective capacity of up to 10 GB typical per cartridge and an effective data transfer rate of 1 MB per second typical, depending on the type of data transferred.
||IBM 7208-222, 7 GB External 8mm Tape Drive - Refurbished|
The IBM 7208 External 8-mm Tape Drive Model 222 is a stand-alone, 8-mm cartridge tape drive with a capacity of up to 7GB per cartridge. The 7208 model 222 supports the 160-meter data cartridge. The 160-meter data cartridge is not supported in 7208 models 002, 012, and 232. The 7208-222 is available in two colors.
|IBM 7208-232, 5 GB Extermal 8mm Dual Tape Drive - Refurbished |
The 7208-232 provides one 8-mm tape drive (#0501) or dual drives (#0502) within a single enclosure. Model 232 emulates the IBM 7208-012 Tape Drive by providing high functionality and high capability for AS/400 models. Each individual drive in the dual-drive 7208-232 acts as a single 7208-012; the single-drive 7208-232 is used in conjunction with an existing 7208-012. The 7208-232 is read/write compatible with IBM 7208 models 002 and 012. The 7208-232 incorporates a 16-character display and a 2-button panel. An integrated label-printer port is included.
|IBM 7208-234, 7 GB External 8mm Dual Tape Drive - Refurbished|
The IBM 7208-234 is a high-function, high-capacity, external 8mm tape subsystem used in applications requiring more single tape cartridge and total storage capacity than is available with the IBM 7208 Model 232 tape subsystem. The 7208-234 provides two 8mm tape drives within a single enclosure.
|IBM 7208-341, 20BG External 8mm Tape Drive - Refurbished |
The 7208 Model 341 20GB External 8mm Tape Drive is a stand-alone, SCSI, 8mm streaming tape drive that attaches to the RS/6000 family of workstations and servers. It provides a media capacity of 20GB (40GB with 2:1 compression) data storage per cartridge and a sustained data rate of 3.0MB per second (6.0MB per second with 2:1 compression).
|IBM 7208-342, 20GB External 8mm Tape Drive - Refurbished|
The IBM 7208 Model 342 20GB External 8mm Tape Drive is a stand-alone, SCSI, 8mm streaming tape drive packaged in a black enclosure that attaches to the AS/400 family of servers and systems. It provides a media capacity of 20 GB (40 GB with 2:1 compression) data storage per cartridge and a sustained data rate of 3.0 MB per second (6.0 MB per second with 2:1 compression). This is four times the capacity and six times the data rate of the IBM 7208 Model 012. The 7208 Model 342 features data compression hardware using an adaptation of IBM's Improved Data Recording Capability (IDRC) algorithm.
