Differences between DLT, LTO and LTO2

I was just courious to know if anyone knew if the motors that are used in these three drives are the same?
Is there any difference in pick up between LTO and LTO2?
Does anyone have the dimensions of the LTO drive?

Re: Differences between DLT, LTO and LTO2

Not sure what you mean by the same? and my guess is you are talking about reel motors. Lot of other motors in all three products.
The principles are the same for all three products but the actual motors are different.
Signicantly different between DLT and LTO, but similar between LTO and LTO2.
What do you mean by pick up? electrical noise? load/unload performance?
The dimensions for the full height LTO and LTO2 are standard 5 1/4 inch form factor. The half height is a little longer than standard 1/2 height 5 1/4 inch form factor.
Full specs are available on hp.com under storage/tape products.
