Datagauss Degausser

Large Degaussing Chamber for Standard & Extra-large Hard Drives & Backup Tapes

Introduced following customer feedback, the DataGauss XL is a state-of-the-art, pulse degausser complete with an extra-large degaussing chamber to accommodate both standard and full height Hard Disk Drives and Backup tapes. Storage devices up to 6½” x 1?” x 4½” (165mm x 42mm x 114mm) can be securely erased, quickly and effectively, the DataGauss XL is our most versatile degausser.

The DataGauss XL is also available with our unique Data Destruction Auditor which enables you to document and verify your hard drive sanitization/erasure and create data protection audit ready reports.

Easy Operation. Like the DataGauss, the DataGauss XL is easy to operate. Releasing the catch, lifts the lid allowing media to be placed into the chamber. Closing the lid and pressing the 'erase' button on the control panel 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 on-board processor monitors the erase procedure ensuring that it is completed correctly. The operator is shown erase progress and immediately alerted to any interruptions in the cycle by messages on the LCD control panel.
