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.
Who Recommends Hard Drive Degaussing?
National Institute of Standards & Technology
Department Of Defense
GCHQ (British Government)
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.
