Re: ESL9595 Upgrade

Although the version of the manual posted above does not indicate support for LTO3 (Ultium 960), the ESL9000 will support Ultrium 960 SCSI drives.

Here are the kit details:

ESL9000 Ultrium 960 Drive Upgrade Kit - Part# AD596A

NOTE: Supports ESL9000 tape libraries including: ESL9322L1/9595L1, S2, L2, SL, 9326SL, 9198SL, and 9198DLX. ESL9326D/DX HVD libraries are NOT supported. Four drive SCSI attachment to e2400-160 interface controller (330839-B21). Same performance as four LTO2 tape drives, but twice the capacity.
