Operation, Storage and Transportation Requirements ■ Operation requirements : 10 to 45 °C Temperature : 20 to 80 % (The maximum temperature of wet bulb is 26 °C.) Humidity Shelf time : If an AIT data cartridge is exposed to an environment other than the operating or storage environment, expose it to the operating environment for a longer time than the period when it is exposed to other environment (for 8 hours at maximum) before use.
Precautions on entry to label • To represent the data contained in the AIT data cartridge, use a label which can be easily replaced and no adhesion trace is left. • To change the label indication, do not erase it with an eraser but peel the old label and paste a new one.
Precautions on Handling Operational precautions Before use • If the AIT data cartridge is damaged, deformed or bent, do not use it. • If the AIT data cartridge is exposed to an environment other than the operating or storage environment, expose it to the operating environment for a longer time than the period when it is exposed to other environment (for 8 hours at maximum) before use.
Usage Inhibition Standard If the AIT data cartridge you are using suffers from one of the conditions below, replace it. • The AIT data cartridge received a strong shock (when falling, for example) and is damaged. Cartridges damaged this way may be broken or warped, their tape covers may no longer open and close properly, which may prevent you from ejecting them from the drive.
Storing Important Data When storing important data or programs, it is strongly recommended that you should prepare and store the master tape and copy (backup) tape just in case. Further, we recommend that you verify backup software when saving, and check saved data. For details on verification, refer to the instruction manual for the backup software you are using.
