Standard ECMA-182
Data Interchange on 12,7 mm 48-Track Magnetic Tape Cartridges - DLT1 Format

(December 1992)

This Ecma Standard specifies the physical and magnetic characteristics of a 12,7 mm wide, 48-track magnetic tape cartridge, to enable interchangeability of such cartridges. It also specifies the quality of the recorded signals, a format - called Digital Linear Tape 1 (DLT 1) - and a recording method.

Together with a labelling standard, e.g. Standard ECMA-13 for Magnetic Tape Labelling, it allows full data interchange by means of such magnetic tape cartridges.
