SLR Tape Drive Repair

(Scalable Linear Recording) A line of magnetic tape drives from Tandberg Data that evolved from the QIC Data Cartridge format.

SLR Tape Drives Capacity
SLR140 70/140 GB
SLR100 50/100 GB
SLR75 37.5/75 GB
SLR60 30/60 GB
SLR50 25/50 GB
SLR7 20/40 GB
SLR5 4/8 GB
SLR4 2.5/5 GB
SLR3 1.2/2.4 GB

Both the QIC and SLC are based on the same data cartridge.  Although the QIC technology is rather outdated the SLR is in current usage, most notably by IBM.  The SLR started with the SLR1 and progressed to the SLR 200.  Tandberg Data has been the leader in the SLR technology product line and IBM has embraced this product over the years in servers.  Many other manufactures have integrated these drives into auto loader and tape libraries over the years.
