Hard Drive Degausser

Erase Hard Drive and Backup Tape Degausser

One of our best sellers, the DataGauss offers no-nonsense automatic, permanent way to erase hard drives and back-up tapes quickly and effectively with its powerful 9000 gauss force. If you’re looking for fast, permanent erasure of medium quantities of hard drives and tapes, perhaps for use at multiple locations, the DataGauss should be your degausser of choice.

The DataGauss 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 when you.

Easy Operation. The DataGauss has been designed with simplicity in mind. 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.
