Abstract

This International Standard specifies the physical and magnetic characteristics of a 12,7 mm wide, 208-track magnetic tape

cartridge, to enable physical interchangeability of such cartridges between drives. It also specifies the quality of the recorded

signals, a format - called Digital Linear Tape 5 (DLT 5) - and a recording method, thereby allowing data interchange between

drives. Together with a labelling standard, for instance International Standard ISO 1001 for Magnetic Tape Labelling, it allows

full data interchange by means of such magnetic tape cartridges.
