Product Description: System Storage TS1140 Model E07 8Gbps Fibre Channel Tape Drive

More Information:

The TS1140 Drive comes with GMR head technology (Giant Magnetoresistive Heads) and dual-ported switched fabric 8 Gbps Fibre Channel attachments, for attachment to multiple servers or a single server with redundancy.

Generally, this Tape Drive is for installation in a TS3500 or racks that offer stand-alone installations. Either way, the tape drive comes enclosed in a canister.
For a rack install, the left drive cradle (with a shelf) must be installed before the right drive cradle can be installed.

For installation in a rack (feature #4674 provides the hardware and instructions to install the 3592 E07/E08 tape drive canister in a rack), up to two TS1140 E07 Tape Drives can be installed in each cradle feature (#4802 or #4812). The cradle requires 10 rack units. Two cradles can be mounted on a shelf, for a total of 4 tape drives on a shelf.
Up to 12 TS1140 drives will fit in a 3584 Model L22, L23, D22, or D23 frame.
The 3584 Model L22 or L23 Base Frame and Model D22 or D23 Expansion Frame are designed for TS1140 Model E07, TS1130 Model E06, TS1120 Model E05, and 3592 Model J1A Tape Drives and 3592 cartridges. Each frame supports up to twelve tape drives with an incremental reduction of storage slots for each set of four drives installed.
