Standard ECMA-120
Data Interchange on 12,7 mm 18-Track Magnetic Tape Cartridges

3rd edition (December 1993)

This Ecma Standard specifies the physical and magnetic characteristics of a 12,7 mm wide, 18-track magnetic tape cartridge to enable interchangeability of such cartridges. It also specifies the quality of the recorded signals, the format and the recording method thus allowing, together with Standard ECMA-13 for Magnetic Tape Labelling, full data interchange by means of such magnetic tape cartridges.
