AIT-4 External SCSI Tape Drive

Key Features
High capacity, high performance : Sony AIT-4 tape drives deliver up to 520 GB capacity (with 2.6:1 compression) in a compact, 8mm data cartridge. Helical scan technology increases data recording density, while offering fast data transfer rates of up to 62.4 MB/s (2.6:1 compression).
Fast access to data with MIC : The unique Memory-In-Cassette feature of Sony AIT drives, with 64 kbits of built-in memory, speeds access to data, providing fast loading (less than 10 seconds) and quick file access (27 to 37 seconds).
High reliability : Sony AIT tape drives incorporate a redesigned head geometry, reducing head/tape pressure and delivering up to 50,000 hours of head life and an industry leading MTBF rating of 400,000 POH (100 duty cycle). Reduced periodic maintenance : Sony AIT drives use Advanced Metal Evaporated (AME) media, which contains pure evaporated cobalt and is sealed with a super-durable Diamond-Like Carbon (DLC) coating. In addition, AIT drives incorporate a Super Head Cleaner mechanism that is activated automatically when tape errors approach a certain threshold. Together, the AME media and Super Head Cleaner mechanism result in extraordinary reliability and virtually eliminate the need for periodic cleaning.
