1/8 G2 Autoloader Upgrade Kit's

Hi all!
I'm searching for an Upgrade Kit for a 1/8G2 LTO3 to LTO4.
I think I just can change the drive? I something like that availably with HP and if yes, does anyone has a part number?

Thanks in advance!

Hello,

No upgrades are available for the 1/8 G2 autoloaders.

There might be something available as a sparepart - but i would not recommend it due to warranty constraints.

The 1/8 G2 Autoloader supports the Ultrium 1760 SAS Drive, that would be the only possible option for LTO4 drives. There's no upgrade kit available, but I'd say it could be purchased separately. We can have a sales rep contacting you if you wish.

Hope this helps,

Gus

The 1/8 G2 uses the exact same half high drive assemblies as the MSL 2024. The only reason no "upgrade" kit is listed is because it isn't possible to ADD ANOTHER drive. I'll look into whether the kits can be listed for the 1/8 G2. Here are the kits that will fit:

HP MSL2024/4048/8096 LTO-4 Ultrium 1760 SAS Drive Upgrade Kit AK383A

HP MSL2024/4048/8096 LTO-4 Ultrium 1760 SCSI Drive Upgrade Kit AJ819A
