The LTO Cartridge Memory Analyzer from Maxell gives you the ability to access and display the history of cartridges in a clear and easy-to-understand format. All LTO cartridges contain an internal memory chip called Cartridge Memory (CM). This chip contains vital information about the cartridge. The analyzer reads this information and extracts it into special software with a clear and concise display. It enables you to identify and eliminate any cartridge that does not meet your requirements. This analyzer allows you to "look inside" the cartridge and get its complete history. You can monitor any cartridge and retire aging or damaged ones before they fail.

The analyzer is approximately the same size as an LTO cartridge and reader does not need to thread the tape in order to access the CM. Just place the cartridge on top of the reader and the display immediately shows the relevant information. A locator feature in the frame matches a notch in the cartridge, thereby ensuring that the cartridge is always correctly oriented.

Maxell Software

In automatic mode, the Maxell CM reader automatically detects the presence of a cartridge, reads its memory chip, and displays the data.
The save file function allows you save the CM contents in a file.
Save Cartridge History
The Save Cartridge history function reads the CM and saves its contents in a file. This function allows you to rapidly read and save the CM contents of many cartridges. If you scan a cartridge that has been previously scanned, the Maxell software automatically finds and appends the previously saved file, allowing you to easily build a complete performance record for each cartridge.
It opens and displays previously saved files. When more than one file is selected, the software performs a statistical analysis and displays statistical data including maximum, minimum, average, and standard deviation from the selected files. Regardless of the number of cartridges you evaluate, unacceptable cartridges will immediately be shown.
Usage History Screen
Scanning a cartridge periodically with the Save Cartridge history option enabled creates a complete record of the cartridge.
Summary Screen
Values that are outside acceptable norms are highlighted in order of severity in yellow, orange, and red colors. When the saved results of several cartridges are selected, the Maxell software displays the summary information of all tapes plus additional statistical information, which includes the minimum, the maximum, the average, and the standard deviation of all values. Click on a value (on MaxellScore, for example) and the table is sorted for this value. Cartridges that do not meet your standard can immediately be identified and discarded.


Interpreting Maxell Data
It is more helpful to create a single score number that is automatically and consistently calculated from all available data. MaxellScore is a Tape Evaluation Score ranging from 0 (very bad) to 100 (very good). Within seconds you can learn if a used cartridge meets your standards.
Data Displayed with the Maxell CM Reader
The available data includes:
-Percentage of records in error
-Recovered read and write errors
-Unrecovered read and write errors
-Servo errors and fatal servo errors
-Number of bytes written and read
-Number of cartridge loads
-Age of cartridge
-Details of the last four times the cartridge was used
-Details of the drives that the cartridge was used in
