- High energy security degausser
Meets CESG Specifications
Simple to Operate
Compact, Table Top Design
Handles all Magnetic Media Formats
Up to 180 per hour throughput
- SV91M: High
- 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
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
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
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
