MARK 300 Portable Reel Tape Cleaner

MARK 300 Portable Reel Tape Cleaner

The MARK 300 Reel Tape Cleaner was specifically designed to meet the needs of the computer user. The compact, portable, easy to use MARK 300 fits in a small space and is ideal for most tape libraries. It accommodates 1/2" tape reel sized up to 10 1/2" diameter and offers self-diagnostic electronics.

The microprocessor-controlled MARK 300 uses proven Data Devices technology, including a non-magnetic vacuum grid cleaning, patented quick-release hub and fully automatic two-pass cleaning.

A specially designed arm packs the tape so it does not touch either reel flange. This anti-skew device protects tape edges, providing longer tape life, and helps prevent loss of data recorded on the outer edges of the tape.

The Mark 300 is available as a new machine, with new machine warranty, at a cost of $2,995.00, and a special discounted price of $1,995.00 is available during the months of March and April. It may also be rented for $400.00 per month plus shipping costs. The voltage on this machine is 115 VAC: 60 HZ or 220 VAC; 50 Hz.
