TES-6 SCSI Interface Tape Drive Emulation


The TES-6 system provides a new and warranted equipment replacement for aging and refurbished tape drives that adhere to the SCSI standard. The TES-6 replaces both SCSI 1/2" 9 track tape drives and 1/4" cartridge tape drives.

The TES-6 is plug-compatible with 9 track and cartridge tape drives using the SCSI interface. No host system software or controller changes are required to replace a refurbished cartridge and 9 track tape drives with the TES-6.

The TES-6 provides a complete bridge between older host system and the TES's modern SCSI drive, replacing tape cartridges and reels with currently produced magneto optical removable cartridges. Free yourself from hard to replace tape cartridges, difficult 9 track tape loading procedures, failing tape sensors, and vacuum pumps. SCSI tape drives have been widely used on computer systems since the 80s with specialized operations and hardware that can not always be rehosted on a simple PC.

The TES-6 offers a new equipment replacement for failing and refurbished SCSI tape drives. While refurbished cartridge and 9 track tape drives are available, refurbished tape drives commonly fail within a few months resulting in system down time.

The TES-6 is provided as new equipment, with a warranty, and MTBF of 100,000 hours.

The TES-6 can replace an existing drive, such as the HP 88780S, or may be added to the existing tape drive chain. The base model has a single-ended SCSI interface with a differential option available for HP 88780B emulation.

Additional TES-6 options include Ethernet based tape data access, and replacement of tape reels with magneto optical or PCMCIA flash card media. No refurbished cartridge or 9 track tape drive can match the reliability, features and customer support provided by choosing the TES-6 to replace your aging SCSI tape drive.

The TES-6 is available in a 19 " rack mount chassis, with Magneto Optical disk output.
