Tape tensioning control improvements in the tape unit will eliminate the need for an auto-retension pass during the data cartridge insertion/load sequence. An auto-retension pass during cartridge load is required to maintain correct tape tension in earlier 1/4-inch cartridge tape units and can take up to five minutes. The #6385 tape unit will retension the data cartridge only when a loss of tape tension is detected (conditional retensioning). For typical operating conditions, retensioning of the data cartridge will be very infrequent.
