9840 tape is the only half inch tape to contain a base plate. This aluminum base plate enhances cartridge stability and enables precise alignment between head and tape to ensure reliable data reading and writing.
9840 Cartridges are designed to protect against damage due to impact such as when a cartridge is dropped. The dual reel design divides the weight evenly so that an impact is absorbed more evenly than single reel models. This combined with small crush pads allow for a stronger tape cartridge.
Advanced servo writing techniques enable 288 tracks to be written across the half inch wide tape. The advanced tape coating allows for greater amounts of information to be written to much smaller areas of 9840 tape.
