SV91M: High Energy Degausser 
If you require to erase a range of magnetic media including high density metal tapes and cassettes then the SV91M is up to the job. The SV91M is quick too, taking as little as ten seconds to completely erase a cassette. Its simple to use and its compact table top operation provides a thoroughly effective and low cost means of degaussing Betacam SP, D2, Mll, DAT, 8mm and other high coercivity tapes. The SV91M is a compact, low noise, manually operated unit that sits neatly on a table top and has been designed very much with Security operations in mind as its powerful degaussing fields can erase even metal particle tape.

The SV91M is ideal for the security conscious, low volume operator who wants to have a professional low budget solution to eliminate magnetic media security risks.

The SV91M degausser is UK government approved to the CESG Degaussing Standard.

This new Standard, which replaces the SEAP 8500 Degaussing Standard has two levels of degaussing:

Lower Level - for RESTRICTED and below.

Higher Level - for CONFIDENTIAL and above

Currently the SV91M is approved at the Lower Level. This means any magnetic media (holding RESTRICTED or less) may be regarded as NOT PROTECTIVELY MARKED after being degaussed.

The SV91M is subject to S(E)N 06/09. which requires all the SEAP-approved degaussers to be retested against the new CESG Degaussing Standard (at the Higher Level). At this time, the testing standard is not yet available.

The SV91M may still be used to degauss magnetic media at CONFIDENTIAL and above, but the degaussed media is subject to additional handling requirements (detailed in S(E)N 06/09).

As improvements in shielding and proprietary advancements in coercivity levels of the data platters in hard drives continue, to ensure complete erasure, some hard drives may have to be disassembled before degaussing the platters themselves on the V91 HD/DLT and the SV91 degaussers.

For degaussers that do not require hard drive disassembly before degaussing, please see our models V660 HDD Evo or V6000 HDD Max

The SV91M has been approved by the UK Government and meets the specified requirements of CESG Degausser Standard for the secure erasure and destruction of information and data stored on magnetic media up to the restricted and below level. Also meets German security approval DIN33858.
