High capacity, high performance
This model available with 52 GB using compact 8mm data cartridges. Helical scan technology increases data recording density, while offering fast data transfer rates of up to 15.6 MB/s (2.6:1 compression).

ATAPI Interface
With an industry standard ATAPI interface, TapeWare AIT drives can be easily installed in most standard computer systems.

High reliability
Freecom TapeWare AIT tape drives incorporate a redesigned head geometry, reducing head/tape pressure and delivering up to 50,000 hours of head life. The built-in Super Head CleanerTM mechanism results in an industry leading MTBF rating of 300,000 POH (100% duty cycle).

Reduced periodic maintenance
TapeWare AIT drives use Advanced Metal Evaporated (AME) media, which conains 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 CleanerTM mechanism result in extraordinary reliability and virtually eliminate the need for periodic cleaning.
