Reel-to-reel tape drives are no longer being manufactured – in fact even the tape is no longer being manufactured. However, Avax can still provide a wide range of refurbished tape drives for a variety of applications.
We also offer emulation units that will allow you to replace your obsolete 1/2″ drive with a unit that writes the data to readily available flash memory cards. This will allow you to continue to use your existing software but get rid of the 1/2″ tapes. For more information, please click here.
Please contact your Avax sales representative with your 1/2″ tape requirements.
The last manufacturer of 3480/3490/3490E compatible tape drives has now stopped production. However, Avax can always offer a range of refurbished 3480, 3490 and 3490E standalone and autoloader units at competitive prices. Please contact your Avax sales representative for more details.
