Data cartridges

Magnetic tape has been used for data storage for over 50 years. In this time, many advances in tape formulation, packaging, and data density have been made. Modern magnetic tape is most commonly packaged in cartridges and cassettes. The device that performs actual writing or reading of data is a tape drive. Autoloaders and tape libraries are frequently used to automate cartridge handling.

Operating humidity

Humidity is a term for the amount of water vapor in air, and can refer to any one of several measurements of humidity. Formally, humid air is not "moist air" but a mixture of air and water vapor, and humidity is defined in terms of the water content of this mixture, called the Absolute humidity. In everyday usage, it commonly refers to relative humidity, expressed as a percent in weather forecasts and on household humidistats; it is so called because it measures the current absolute humidity relative to the maximum. Specific humidity is a ratio of the water vapor content of the mixture to the dry air content (on a mass basis). The water vapor content of the mixture can be measured either as mass per volume or as a partial pressure, depending on the usage.

Storage humidity

Storage humidity

Humidity - or briefly humidity - is the proportion of water vapour in the gas mixture of the earth's atmosphere or in rooms. Liquid water (e.g. raindrops, mist droplets) or ice (e.g. snow crystals) are therefore not added to the air humidity. Humidity is an important parameter for numerous technical and meteorological processes as well as for health and comfort.
At any temperature, a certain volume of air can only contain a maximum quantity of steam. The most common measure of humidity is relative humidity, expressed as a percentage (%). It is the ratio of the current water vapour content to the maximum possible water vapour content at the same temperature and pressure.
