ECMA-258

Data Interchange on 12,7 mm 128-track magnetic tape cartridges - DLT 3-XT format

1st edition, June 1997

This Ecma Standard specifies the physical and magnetic characteristics of a 12,7 mm wide, 128-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 3 Extended (DLT 3-XT) – and a recording method, thereby allowing data interchange between drives. Together with a labelling standard, for instance Standard ECMA-13 for Magnetic Tape Labelling, it allows full data interchange by means of such magnetic tape cartridges.
