IBM 3490-A02

The 3490-A02 is an 18-track, 2 Control Unit component for an IBM 3490 tape subsystem. The IBM 3490 Model A02 supports the 3490 Model B02 and B04 18-track Tape Drive Units. The subsystem will occupy approximately 50 percent less floor space than a comparable 3480 configuration by incorporating up to two control unit functions in one box. The Model A02 can be field upgraded to a Model A20, providing granularity from a minimum 2x2 (A02 x B02-18 track) configuration to a maximum 2x16 (A20 x four B40-36 track) configuration. Included as standard in the Model A02 is Improved Data Recording Capability (IDRC), dual communications capability, and a 2 Mb buffer. Components in the control units are serviced from the rear to minimize operational interference.
