MSL5030 upgrades tape drive

We have a MSL5030 library with Ultrium 230 tape drive, which support LTO 1 only. We would like to upgrade the library with a new tape drive, which could support the new tape media with more capacity and faster speed. But I do not know which tape drive is supported/compatible with MSL5030 library, and couldn't find information on HP website about this topic. Could someone kindly give some advice? Thanks
