Model 7

The Model 7 was used with the IBM System/360 Model 60 and above, except for the 360's Model 67. It was compatible with IBM 2400-series Magnetic Tape Units, Models 4, 5 and 6, and the 2420 Model 5. It accommodated a nine-track data format and 1,600 bits per inch on standard one-half inch tape. Automatic threading was provided for 8 ½" and 10 ½" reels and minireels. A standard feature permitted automatic loading with the new IBM wraparound cartridge, which enclosed a 10 ½" reel, eliminating manual handling of both tape and reel.
