IBM 3490-D42

The 3490-D42 is a 36-track, 1 Control Unit, 2-drive, tape subsystem. The 3490 Enhanced Capability (3490E) Model D42 is a member of the IBM 3490 Magnetic Tape Subsystem family, providing significant performance and cartridge capacity improvements to mid-range and intermediate customers. The D42 uses the existing cartridge system tape and are read- compatible with earlier cartridge system formats, providing for ease of migration. The Enhanced Capability format (36-track bidirectional recording), together with standard Improved Data Recording Capability (IDRC), significantly increases overall cartridge capacity. This increased capacity and optional Automatic Cartridge Loader (ACL) combine to address the data capacity issues of unattended tape operations. Improved utilization of ES Connection* (ESCON*) Channels provides new possibilities in performance, connectivity, and remote tape operations.
