About Fujifilm’s DC-Analyser
Created through combined development efforts between Fujifilm’s globally recognized data tape engineers and the application developers at FUJIFILM Corporation, the Fujifilm DC Analyser uses a low-power radio frequency (RF) reader to access historical tape usage information stored in the internal cartridge memory (CM) chip in every LTO Ultrium tape cartridge.  The CM chip retains basic diagnostic information over a period of time, including percentage or record errors, amount of data read/written, number of cartridge loads and the age of the cartridge. For more information about Fujifilm data tape products and technology, go to www.fujifilmusa.com/tapedatastorage
