DataGauss Degausser

The DataGauss is the most powerful compact continuous degausser for Hard Drive and Backup Tapes in the range.
It uses state of the art pulse discharge technology to achieve a complete secure erasure.

Media that can be erased includes both Hard Drives that use Perpendicular and Longitudinal recording techniques up to 5000 Oersted's and all common backup tapes


Key Features:

• Continuous Duty
• Single Pass Operation
• Processor Controlled for Failsafe operation
• Complete erasure of hard drives & backup tapes
• Erases Longitudinal & Perpendicular Hard Drives
• Very low noise, suitable for office environment

The DataGauss is a table top, chamber degausser, making operation safe, effective and simple for everyone. Operators simply slide the catch and the lid lifts up automatically. Place the media into the media compartment and close the lid. The erase cycle is started by pressing the 'erase' button on the control panel which activates the charging of the powerful degaussing magnetic field. When the display says the degauss cycle is complete the lid can be opened and the media removed. The entire process takes just 45 seconds.

Throughout the whole erase cycle the onboard processor monitors the erase procedure ensuring that it is completed correctly. The operator is immediately alerted to any interruptions in the cycle by messages on the LCD control panel.

Safe & Secure Operation
With safety in mind and to meet the latest ICNIRP Magnetic Exposure Guidelines, the DataGauss's field discharge duration is less than a second and the magnetic field is designed to be concentrated inside the chamber.

Who Recommends Hard Drive Degaussing?
As part of their guidelines for the sanitization of magnetic media degaussing is recommended by the following organizations:

• National Institute of Standards & Technology
• Department of Defense
• Government Security Organizations

The DataGauss is designed to help you comply with the following Government Mandates that require destruction of sensitive information stored on Hard Drives and Tapes before there disposal.

• PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry) Data Security Standard
• PIPEDA (Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act)
• NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) Guidelines for Media Sanitization NIST SP 800-88
• NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) Guidelines for Media Sanitization NIST SP 800-36 • Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA)
• HIPAA (Health Information Portability and Accountability Act)
• California SB-1386
• IRS-1075

Who uses the DataGauss?

• Banks
• IT Departments
• E-Recyclers
• Corporate

Note: After degaussing, hard drives should not be not be reused as they are stressed in the erasure process. Some backup tapes may not be reusable after degaussing due to the servo track being erased

Magnetic Media Technology continues to advance and data capacities increase bringing with it  greater security risks when using and disposing of media. 
rasing all media before re-use will orientate the particles completely thus leaving the media clean of previous data and provides protection against computer Virus contamination.
