AbstractAstrodrive® is a regenerative magnetic tape drive providing tape speeds from 15/16 to 960 in./sec. The unit features mechanical simplicity and low power consumption, in a unique peripheral drive mechanism, suitable for cartridge-load, or conventional reel-to-reel transport arrangements. Both single and dual motor configurations of the basic mechanism are discussed, along with the inherent capabilities and limitations of each.
