    The new HD-2X is an upgraded version of the HD-2 by increasing the degaussing power (over 10,000 gauss) yet is the same size, shape and cost of the HD-2. The HD-2X is simple to use, all you have to do is turn it on, place the drive in the drawer, and it will degauss automatically and be ready for the next drive.

    The HD-2X 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 1.25” degaussing chamber – including PC hard drives, LTO, SuperDLT, and DLT. The HD-2 has the power to erase 8300+ Oe HD media.

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

    This compact desk-top degausser, at only 34 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. If purchased with the optional hard shipping and transportation case, the HD-2X Degausser can be shipped directly to your media, thus greatly reducing any legal exposure for potential loss of sensitive information.

    Government Mandate Compliance
    The HD-2X 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-2X'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.
