For LTO-1, LTO-2 and LTO-3 tape drives, consider the LTO Universal Cleaning Cartridge. This cartridge is for use on all LTO Ultrium 2 drives, and most LTO Ultrium 1 drives. LTO Universal cleaning tapes are equipped with a computer memory chip (just like the data tape). The chip stores various information and has an embedded code that is recognized by the compatible drive's firmware. Once the cleaning cartridge is used to capacity (15 - 50 uses, drive dependent), the drive will no longer accept the cleaning tape and will eject the tape.
