C7978A Overview

HP C7978A LTO Ultrium Universal Cleaning Cartridge

HP LTO C7978A Ultrium Universal Cleaning Cartridges are designed specifically for use in all LTO Ultrium 1, 2, 3, 4 5, and 6 drives and are compatible with libraries designed for LTO Ultrium 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6 drives. The Ultrium system is based on the industry's first open data storage platform.

The Ultrium C7978A Universal Cleaning Cartridge from HPE cleans the tape heads of HPE and non-HPE Ultrium standalone tape drives and libraries. The cartridge removes debris from the read/write head and tape path of the drive, providing a reduction in errors, improved data security, extended drive life, and optimized drive performance. The cleaning cartridge C7978A can be used up to 50 times with HPE Ultrium 960 and 460 tape drives and up to 15 times with HPE C7978A Ultrium 230 and 215 tape drives.

LTO-Ultrium C7978A Universal Cleaning Cartridge is compatible with all manufacturers' LTO Ultrium 1, 2, 3 and 4 drives and provides up to 50 cleanings or as many as your particular drive allows. Cleaning is done by shuffling a specific amount of tape over the drive head based on a specific cleaning algorithm that is unique to each drive manufacturer. Cleaning reduces built-up or stains that get deposited on drive heads and should be done whenever the drive's "use cleaning cartridge" signal is flashing. It is recommended that you keep track of the number of times you use the cartridge and discard it after it reaches the maximum number of uses for your drive model. In addition, the cartridge has an RF (radio frequency) LTO C7978A-CM (cartridge memory) that keeps track of the number of times your cartridge has been used. Most drives will read the CM, see when your drive has been used the maximum number of times, and will no longer use that cleaning cartridge.
