World leader in Data Erasure and Destruction

V91 DLT/LTO

Manually Operated DLT & LTO Degausser

When reusing DLT tapes, it is important that all data and formatting is removed completely. Degaussing with the V91 DLT/LTO removes all magnetic patterns, thus eliminating all data and formatting, leaving them completely clear and ready to reuse. Degaussing DLT and other magnetic media will ensure that subsequent recordings will be at their very best. And degaussing can extend the life of magnetic media such as DLT, which in turn delivers cost savings.

LTO degaussers such as the V91 DLT/LTO alter the magnetic charge on LTO tape cartridges. This process will erase the data stored on the tape and also erases the cartridge’s servo tracks, making the cartridge completely unreadable. Note: Some backup tapes may not be reusable after degaussing due to the servo track being erased.

For Erasing Cassettes and Cartridges the operator turns the security key on the front of the V91 DLT/LTO to the “On” position. Pressing the red “Power” button turns on the magnetic field. The operator then takes the media and passes it across the middle of the top surface on the V91 DLT/LTO from one side to the other in one slow and smooth motion. Turn the media through 90° and repeat the motion. Flip over the media and subject it to a third pass, turn 90° and do a fourth and final pass.

The media is now erased and ready for reuse if required.

The V91 DLT/LTO degausser comes with a generous 36 month back to base, all parts and labor included warranty. Extended warranties also available. We are so confident in our product build quality that whether you opt for an extended warranty or not, our factory-based technical support team are available for free phone and email support. This support extends for the entire lifetime of ownership.

The V91DLT/LTO is designed to help you comply with the following Government Mandates that require destruction of sensitive information stored on Backup Tapes before their reuse or/and disposal.

  • PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry) Data Security Standard
  • PIPEDA (Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act)
  • NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) Guidelines for Media Sanitization NIST SP 800-88
  • NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) Guidelines for Media Sanitization NIST SP 800-36
  • Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA)
  • HIPAA (Health Information Portability and Accountability Act)
  • California SB-1386
  • IRS-1075
  • CJIS

With safety in mind and to meet the latest ICNIRP Magnetic Exposure Guidelines, the V91 DLT/LTO field is concentrated near the top operational surface where the media is degaussed.
