  • ESCON attachment with optional controller feature on the 3490 FC0.
  • The IBM 3490E Model F11 is intended for use in backup, archiving files, off-site data storage for disaster recovery and data exchange with other systems.
  • The IBM 3490E Model F11 is rack-mountable. Up to four 3490E Model F11s can be installed in the 3490E Model FC0 Rack. An optional control unit is available on the FC0 rack which allows the F11 drive to be attached to ESCON systems.
  • The ten cartridge autoloader on the IBM 3490E Model F11 automatically loads and unloads cartridges as they are filled, improving efficiency by reducing operator handling.
IBM 3490E – F1A

The 3490-F1A is a 36-track Magnetic Tape Unit component of an IBM 3494 Magstar Tape library. The IBM 3490 Enhanced Capability (3490E) Model F1A offers high-performance, high-reliability 3490 tape cartridge access in the 3494 library at a low cost. Standard features of the Model F1A Tape Drive are 18-track read and 36-track read/write, 3480 and 3490 tape interchange, and Improved Data Recording Capability (IDRC). IDRC provides up to 2.4GB of capacity per tape cartridge.
IBM 3490e – FCO

The 3490E-FC0 is designed to allow rack-mounting of the IBM 3490E Model F11 Magnetic Tape Drives. From one to four Model F11 Tape Drives can be mounted in the FC0 rack. Optional features provide connections for ES/3090 and S/390 systems. Attachment to ES/3090, ES/9000, or S/390 systems can be made with either ESCON or parallel channels. Attachment to AS/400 systems is by the AS/400 Feature 6501, Magnetic Media Subsystem Controller Feature. Attachment to RS/6000 and other open systems is by a SCSI differential adapter.
