This standard was last reviewed and confirmed in 2005. Therefore this version remains current.
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.
