PER-8000 Hard Drive Degausser
Product Description:

Run Time:

  • 30 Minutes On
  • 20 Minutes Off

The PER-8000 Table Top unit is a low-noise, compact unit with 'industrial strength' flux fields. It features a foot-control for hands-free operation and can degauss a wide range of magnetic media, including 1/4", 1/2", 1" and 2" thick reels, and up to 16" diameter reels.

Other computer media includes compact cassettes, QIC, DC600, 2000, Tk50, 70, 85, 3480/3490/3590E, 4mm/8mm, Extrabyte/Travan, and any type I, II or III computer media in addition to 3 1/2" and 5 1/4" hard drives.

The PER-8000 Table Top can erase hard drives up to 250 Gigabytes.

Broadcast & Video Media - VHS, S-VHS, U-matic, U-matic SP, 1", 2", B, and C format, Beta SP M1/M3, D1, D2, D3, DVC-PRO, R-DAT, Pancakes, and 16" Mirror Mother Master Tape.

The PER- 8000 employs an exclusive magnetic resonance design that insures full-power to the magnetic loop circuit, (magnetic media) for full, deep degauss levels.

The PER- 8000 has a large work surface with operating instructions in full view, and a degaussing coil current monitor providing visual confirmation of full degauss levels.

A 'soft-start' design eliminates circuit-breaker problems at turn-on, and unlike other Degaussers, has maximum erasure field plus maximum erasure time. Status indicator lights confirm operation mode.

All accessories are included - reel guide, foot control, hard drive handling container, detachable line cord and detailed instructions.

ATTENTION WHEN DEGAUSSING:

Please note the following suggestions when using a Degausser:

 

Watches:

Remove your wristwatch when using the Degausser.  Direct exposure to the magnetic field may damage some watches.

 

Magnetic Strip Cards:

Do not place your wallet or purse containing credit or phone cards directly on or above the conveyor belt. Magnetic strip cards are very easy to erase. However, having a wallet in your back pants pocket while using the Degausser will not erase the cards.

 

Tape storage:

Store videotapes you do not intend to erase approximately four feet from the Degausser. This will eliminate the opportunity for the operator to accidentally run “good” tapes through the Degausser.

 

Placement of Tapes:

When erasing tapes, place them on the left edge of the belt (as you face the machine). In order they may travel the full length of the conveyor belt for quality erasure.

 

Pacemakers: 

Do not operate the Degausser if you have a pacemaker.

 

ABOUT DEGAUSSING MAGNETIC MEDIA

 

An alternating current (AC) bulk eraser (Degausser) is used for complete erasure of data and other signals on magnetic media. Degaussing is a process where magnetic media is exposed to a powerful, alternating magnetic field. Degaussing removes any previously written data, leaving the media in a magnetically randomized (blank) state.

The Degausser must subject the media to an alternating magnetic field of sufficient intensity to saturate the media. Then the Degausser by slowly withdrawing or reducing the field leaves the magnetic media in a magnetically neutral state.

To erase recorded data, it is necessary for the strength of the degaussing field to be greater in value than the coercivity of the magnetic media. Simply stated, coercivity is the magnetic field strength, rated in oersteds (Oe), required to change the magnetic orientation of the magnetic material. Check with knowledgeable dealers or Degausser manufacturers to identify Degausser models that meet your requirements.              Examples of typical coercivities for computer magnetic tapes and disks are shown in table I.

Data is typically not lost until its level has been decreased 65% to 75% (or more) below its original saturation recording signal level, dependent upon the drive system.

A complete erasure level, for most users, is considered to be 60 dB below the original signal level – this of course depends on user requirements. A 60 dB signal decrease equates to reducing the signal to one tenth of one percent of its original value.

Magnetic media products that have factory pre-recorded magnetic servo patterns should not be degaussed. Degaussing would erase the factory written magnetic servo signals and leave the media unusable. For all other magnetic media (without magnetic servo signals), after proper degaussing, the quality of subsequent data recording should be unchanged or even improved.

It is very important to understand and follow the Degaussers operating instructions. This is especially important for manual units where the operator controls the media’s movement through the degaussing field. For higher coercivity media, four passes are often recommended – two passes, with a 90 degree rotation for the second pass, and then repeat the process with the media turned upside-down. Of course, these and other important operating considerations will vary with the type, power and construction of the individual Degausser models.

* NOTE 1: DO NOT DEGAUSS

This product has factory prerecorded magnetic servo tracks. The media will be unusable, if the servo tracks are bulk erased (degaussed). Products that use factory prerecorded magnetic servo signals should not be degaussed unless destruction of the recording media is desired.
