• HD-5T

Approved for Australian Government use up to Top Secret and used by many Australian Federal Government Departments

Meets NSA requirements for purging classified information on longitudinal and perpendicular magnetic disk storage devices with Coercivities up to 5000 Oersteds and magnetic tape media with Coercivities up to 2800 Oersteds. The HD-5T accommodates multiple tapes and hard disk drives per cycle, without disassembly.

Performance Verification
A unique feature of the HD-5T degausser is its ability to measure its field strength and report results to the operator, thus guaranteeing its performance. Know without a doubt that your media is being degaussed to National Security Agency standards each and every time.

Energy Efficient
The HD-5T degausser has a built-in energy saving feature. Uninterrupted use decreases cycle time as the degausser is able to retain a portion of the energy for re-use in the next cycle. Therefore, continuous use of the HD-5T degausser shortens the cycle time and reduces the amount of energy consumed.

Fast Erasure
The chamber of the HD-5T degausser accommodates multiple pieces of magnetic media at the same time, up to 1 inch (26 mm) by 4 inches (102 mm) by 6 inches (152 mm) in size. Combining multiple tapes and hard drives reduces the amount of time and labor associated with degaussing media.

HD-5T Optional Accessories

Wheeled cart and deployment case are available. Contact a representative for details.
