Model Details

Highly suited for a wide range of stand alone or automated library computing environments and equipped with an Ultra Wide differential SCSI interface, Sony's DTF-2 model GY8240UWD computer peripheral tape drive will read and write uncompressed capacity of 200GB with large cassette or 60GB with small cassettes. The unit incorporates compression for average data capacities of 518GB or 155GB, respectively.


  • Ultra High-Speed Data Recording
  • High Capacity Data Storage
  • Read Compatibility With DTF-1
  • Powerful Error Correction
  • Excellent Reliability
  • Incorporates years of Sony's advanced magnetic recording technology, providing an extremely high sustained native data rate of 24MB/sec (86GB/hr).
  • Can read tapes recorded by a GY-2120 at its transfer rate of 24MB/sec, so users can now access their tape assets in half the time.
  • Maintains a very low bit error rate of 1 x 10E-17 or less.
  • Incorporates the following features: long-life amorphous read heads, automatic head cleaning system, precision tape transport system mounted on a rugged die-cast chassis, and sophisticated self-diagnostics.
  • Sony's unique Tele-File system uses a non-contact type of flash memory in the form of a label attached to a cassette which hold data relating to both tape and system management; the GY-8240 series tape drive uses the data written onto the Tele-File memory to dramatically reduce load and unload times.
