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. Degaussing Hard Drive, 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.

Data Destruction Auditor: Our unique Data Destruction Auditor solution records all essential information of the degaussing/sanitization process. Reports can be generated detailing key information such as media serial numbers, degauss force, date and time of erasure and operator details and used as evidence of degaussing. Data Destruction Auditor provides a complete sanitization/erasure audit trail. Note: Data Destruction Auditor must be fitted at time of ordering. Click here for more information.

Transportation Case: An optional heavy-duty transportation case with wheels is available for the DataGauss, enabling you to safely transfer your degausser by road or air, ideal if you have a requirement to erase media at multiple locations. Click here for more information.
