- The DATAGONE is a fully automatic degausser for Hard Drives
and Backup tapes.
- It uses pulse discharge technology and is fully processor
controlled which enables the DATAGONE to offer a complete
and secure erase on magnetic media.
Media that can be degaussed includes Hard
Drives that use both perpendicular and vertical recording
techniques and most common backup tapes including DLT,
LTO, 8mm, DDS and more.
entire erasure process takes approximately 8 seconds.
The DATAGONE generates a powerful magnetic field and in less
than a second completely erases the complete data from Hard
Drives and Backup tapes. Its simple one pass fully automatic
operation makes it ideal in businesses where security is of
the utmost importance.
The DATAGONE is a fully automatic table top mounted unit.
With the Datagone powered up the operator simply slides the
hard drive into the aperture on the left hand side of the
unit. The unit senses the presence of the media and the degauss
cycle starts automatically. No operator action is required.
When the degauss cycle is complete, the hard drive is released
and exits from the degausser on the right hand side. Throughout
the entire degauss cycle the onboard processor monitors the
procedure and progress messages are displayed on the LCD panel.
If the degauss cycle is interrupted for any reason such as
power loss or any fault condition, the media is retained in
the DATAGONE and the operator is immediately alerted to the
interruption in the erasure cycle on the LCD panel.
To eject media when the cycle has failed for any reason the
operator has to press the reset button. This releases the
Hard Drive or Tape and resets the degauss cycle. The operator
should then attempt a repeat erasure. The entire erasure process
takes approximately 8 seconds.

Note: After degaussing, hard drives should not be not be
reused as they are stressed in the erasure process.
Some backup tapes may not be reusable after degaussing due
to the servo track being erased.
