Exabyte 210 Library Driver
Tape drive cannot be added to Robotic Library, and - VOX
Tape drive 40 is preferably a helical scan tape drive having a form factor known in the industry as a "half high" drive, such as for example the EXB family of drives marketed by Exabyte 210 Library Corporation. In addition, tape drive 40 has electronics for transducing information relative to magnetic tape in the cartridge.
In conjunction with library 30 of the present invention, drive 40 differs from prior art drives in being provided with a unique bezel As shown in more detail in Exabyte 210 Library. Bezel plate 71 is secured to drive 40 by fasteners, including fasteners which extend through bezel side brackets 76 and are anchored in sidewalls of the drive housing.
Bezel side brackets 76 extend orthogonally rearwardly from bezel plate 71 as shown in FIG.
Bezel 70 differs from prior art bezels by having several features provided on a front surface thereof. Particularly, just below cartridge insertion slot 72 and centered Exabyte 210 Library lateral edges of bezel plate 71 a gripper trip projection 80 is provided.

Exabyte 210 Library explained subsequently, projection 80 is formed in a position on bezel plate 71 so that, when projection 80 abuts portions of transport mechanism 50, mechanism 50 engages magnetic tape cartridge 42 situated in drive Such engagement occurs when transport mechanism 50 Exabyte 210 Library a predetermined force from projection 80 as transport mechanism 50 travels toward bezel As understood with reference both to FIG.
On its underside, projection 80 is supported by rib 86 see FIG. Bezel 70 is also provided with two cam members, illustrated as left cam member 90L and right cam member 90R in FIG.
With respect to the height of bezel 70, cam members 90L, 90R are positioned between projection 80 Exabyte 210 Library bezel lower front edge As understood from the ensuing discussion of operation of transport mechanism 50, cam members 90L, 90R are spaced apart laterally on bezel plate 71 by a distance greater than the width of magnetic tape cartridge 42 such width being understood to lie in an essentially horizontal plane, i.
Each cam member 90L, 90R has an essentially right-triangular cross-sectional shape in a plane orthogonal to a front plane of the bezel plate As such, each cam member 90L, 90R has an hypotenuse wall 94 and a perpendicular wall In addition, the right triangle is slightly truncated, so that each cam member 90L, 90R Exabyte 210 Library a small truncated apex front Exabyte 210 Library Cam members 90L, 90R are bridged by two ribs U and L formed on bezel plate Upper rib U and lower rib L are parallel to one another and span perpendicular walls 95 of cam members 90L and 90R.
Transfer base in turn translates in a "Y" direction along linear bearing assembly Of particular interest to the present invention is structure and operation of gripper assembly Examples of suitable structure for transfer base and transfer bearing assembly are provided in U. Such other members include a pair of gripper fingers particularly left gripper Exabyte 210 Library L and right gripper finger R ; a pair of finger linkages L, R; linkage biasing over-assist spring ; a plunger ; Exabyte 210 Library linkage stop members L, R.
It should be remembered that FIG. Proximal ends of left and right gripper fingers L, R are pivotally attached to base member Exabyte 210 Library finger attachment points L, R, as shown in FIG. Such attachment points, as well as other Exabyte 210 Library points hereinafter described, are rotatably retained by base member Distal ends of gripper fingers L, R are configured to engage cartridge grip notches see FIG.
Finger biasing springs L, R have first ends connected about midpoints of pivot pins L, R, respectively, and second ends connected about midpoints of pivot pins L, R.
Pivot pins L, R are pivotally engaged by gripper base Proximal ends of finger linkages L, R are pivotally connected to one another but not to base member at linkage Exabyte 210 Library junction Linkage pivot junction is a pivot pin which extends through proximal ends of finger linkages L, R and bumper Bumper is a cylindrical member through which the pivot pin forming linkage pivot junction axially extends. Finger linkages L, R are provided with respective spurs L, R.
At their bottoms, distal ends of spurs Exabyte 210 Library, R are connected by over-assist springalso known as an over-center assist spring.
Thus, bottoms of distal ends of spurs L, R, and accordingly over-assist springare out of the plane of finger linkages L, R. Linkage stop members Exabyte 210 Library, L are preferably integral with base member and have an essentially solid rectangular shape.
Base member can be formed of any suitable hard material, such as aluminum or hard plastic.
