CDS-2500A Automatic Heavy Duty Degausser
IT'S LIKE HAVING TWO DEGAUSSERS IN ONE!
With Optional Magnetic Shield and Automatic Feed Hopper
The CDS-2500A Automatic Heavy Duty Degausser for High-Oersted Media
is designed to erase all formats of media that are less than 6
inches in width in only one pass. The degaussing field strength switch provides
the option to change between high and low field strengths. It is
like having two degaussers in one. On low, the CDS-2500A is an automatic
continuous duty degausser capable of degaussing over 90 VHS tapes
per minute without overheating. On high, the machine is a powerful high
energy degausser capable of erasing the newest metal tape formats
of up to 2000 oersteds.
performance, the degaussing coils are vacuum dipped and baked.
The vacuum process draws the air out of the coil allowing the
potting compound to coat each winding of the coil. The coil is
then baked rock hard to eliminate vibrations that
could eventually lead to shorts in the windings of the coil. In
addition, two thermal detection units have been wound into each
coil to ensure that the operating temperature is safely
maintained. When in operation, the coils are cooled by fans which
are automatically turned on and off by the signals being sent
from the thermal detection units.
To start erasing, simply press the on button and
place the media on the conveyor belt. The conveyor belt will
transport the media through the strong horizontal and vertical
degaussing fields produced by two degaussing coils placed at 90
degrees from each other (V coil design). For added
convenience, the conveyor belt speed can be easily adjusted up to
60 feet per minute. At this rate, the CDS-2500A will erase more than
90 VHS tapes per minute. For more efficiency, add the optional FH-4
feed hopper. Additional options on this unit are the magnetic
shielding coupled with input and output slides. These options are
The machine can be rented for a period of one week at a cost of $495.00 or for one month at a cost of $900.00 per month, or it can be purchased as a remanufactured machine at a cost of $3,795.00.

Magnetic Shield - $375.00
For customers requiring
an enclosed degaussing station, a magnetic shield has been designed that completely
encloses the conveyor belt and magnetic fields. The magnetic shield option reduces
the magnetic field surrounding the degausser below the threshold limit values
specified by the American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists (ACGIH).
To assist with the loading and unloading of media with the magnetic shield in
place, you may add an input and output slide.
Hopper - $399.00
The automatic cassette feed hopper attaches directly
to the CDS-2500A degausser. This low cost option dramatically increases the speed
and simplicity of erasing large quantities of media. While originally designed
for VHS cassettes, the hopper can be adjusted to fit many other formats as well.
Made of stainless steel, the hopper is rugged, designed for continuous use, and
is easily installed using existing hardware. The feed hopper can be used with
the magnetic shield in place.
