V6000HDD Max Conveyor Degausser
Product Description:

The vulnerability of information stored on PC hard drives is a recognized security risk. Unlike other PC data storage media the hard drive always stays with the PC. Every time a PC leaves a company's control all the data and company information will go with it. Even if the hard drive breaks down, the storage platters will still contain information which could be read once repaired.

In keeping with our policy of recognizing user requirements we have introduced the V6000HDD HDD Max, a state-of-the-art one pass conveyor degausser designed for the volume erasure of hard disk drives. The specially designed high intensity coils ensure complete erasure of hard drives in large quantities, perfect for IT logistic and security providers. Although in most cases this will render the hard drive inoperative, the cost of a replacement hard drive cannot be compared to the cost to a company if sensitive information can be read by a third party.

The performance of the V6000HDD HDD Max will satisfy requirements for large volumes of hard disk drives to be erased. Hard disc drives are placed on the belt and guided through the 5000 gauss erasure field. The V6000HDD HDD Max regulates temperature to eliminate excessive heating of the hard drive casing. Up to 300 hard drives can be erased per hour. Safety.

With safety in mind and to meet the latest ICNIRP Magnetic Exposure Guidlines, the V6000HDD HDD Max can be operated remotely via the umbilical button. An input hopper option is also available.  The V6000HDD HDD MAX particularly suitable for use by government departments and the military.

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.
