HD-2 Data Eliminator Hard Drive Degausser (Rental)

Available on GSA Contract Number GS-02F-0093V


The new HD-2 Data Eliminator Continuous Duty Hard Drive & Tape Degausser is one of the most innovative degaussers available today. The HD-2 Degausser is a continuous duty drawer-style degausser that erases all hard drive and tape formats that fit in the 5.9” x 4.3” x 1.5” degaussing chamber – including PC hard drives, LTO, SuperDLT, and DLT.

This compact desk-top degausser, at only 42 pounds, is completely deployable and offers an erasure cycle time of just 60 seconds. It has been independently tested and certified to meet both ANSI and CE standards. Purchased with the optional hard shipping and transportation case, the HD-2 Degausser can be shipped directly to your media, thus greatly reducing any legal exposure for potential loss of sensitive information.

Next Generation Technology
As magnetic media technology evolves, so must the means to erase that media. The HD-2 Degausser is the next evolution in capacitive discharge degaussing equipment built to erase today’s high coercivity HDD’s and tape media. The HD-2 Degausser for hard drives and LTO tape is a high energy, DC capacitive discharge degausser capable of erasing hard drives and high-coercivity tape media in just 60 seconds. The Degausser’s user-friendly drawer mechanism provides effortless loading of various sized hard drives and tape media without the need for adapters.

Handles A Variety of Media Formats
The HD-2 Degausser will erase all hard drive and tape formats that fit in the 5.9” x 4.3” x 1.5” degaussing chamber. This unit erases hard drives and high coercivity tape media, including all formats of LTO (1, 2, 3, and 4), SuperDLT I & II, DLT, 9940, 3592, and more. With a continuous duty rating (no cooling necessary) and 60 second cycle time, even large quantities of media can be handled in a reasonable period of time.

Government Mandate Compliance
The HD-2 Data Eliminator Degausser assists you in meeting compliance standards for government mandates that require complete elimination of sensitive information stored on magnetic media prior to re-use or disposal, including the following:

  • GLBA (Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act)
  • PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry) Data Secutiry Standard
  • NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) Guidelines for Media Sanitization: NIST 800-36, NIST 800-88
  • HIPAA (Health Information Portability and Accountability Act)
  • PIPEDA (Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act)
  • California Senate Bill 1386

Erases Non-Functioning Drives
The HD-2's unique technology does not rely on software and thus easily and efficiently erases failed or damaged hard drives and tapes, completely and permanently, regardless of the operating system. With a 60 second erasure cycle, this unit is more efficient and much faster than software-based erasure programs.

Easily Transportable
Additionally, the HD-2 Degausser is compact and convenient, fitting easily into any desk-top office environment with its small 17.5” x 12.25” footprint. The machine can be optionally purchased in a rack-mount version and is shipped in a mini-truck with a rolling case for ease of installation.

Purchased with its companion hard shipping and transportation case, it can be shipped anywhere in the world, direct to your media. You never have to ship any sensitive data off-site again.

The machine can be purchased as a remanufactured machine at a cost of $2,995.00. It can also be rented for a period of one month at a cost of $895.00 per month, or it can be rented for a period of one week at a cost of $450.00 per week.
