Available on GSA Contract: GS-02F-0093V
GSA Delivered Pricing is $5,837.00

The newly engineered T-1.5 15,000 Gauss Degausser is a new drawer-style degausser engineered to erase high-Oersted computer hard drives and high-Oersted tape cartridges.

Its Effective Magnetic Field (EMF) of 1.5 Tesla, or 15,000 Gauss, makes it the strongest drawer style degausser available today.

The T-1.5 Degausser is automatic, light weight and simple to use - a perfect fit for your organization's existing operations.

The unit accepts a variety of magnetic media that fits into the 1" x 4.3" x 6 (2.5 X 11 X 15 cm) drawer opening.

In today's litigious climate, the T-1.5 Degausser is an ideal solution: it destroys data on hard drives and other magnetic media to help companies and organizations protect sensitive information and thus stay in compliance with the ever increasing Government regulations for data sanitization.

As hard drive and other magnetic media densities increase, the T-1.5 will continue to be the ultimate safeguard against data loss that can lead to costly data breaches.

This unit comes standard with a one year depot repair warranty for parts and labor. A three year parts and labor warranty is also available.

  • Meets data sanitization standards set by the US National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and The US Department of Defense
  • Provides peace of mind that confidential data will not fall into the wrong hands
  • Will erase any hard drive or magnetic media that fits in the drawer, including laptop, desktop and network hard drives, as well as various formats of LTO and DLT tape
  • Offers an environmentally responsible way to handle and dispose of electronic media
  • Magnetic Field Intensity: 5,000 Oe
  • Magnetic Flux Density: 15,000 Gauss (1.5 Tesla)
  • Automatic On/Off operation
  • Erasure cycle time: < 5 seconds
  • Duty Cycle: Continuous
  • Table top or floor operation
  • At a lightweight 48 pounds, easy to transport directly to your media
  • Made in The USA

The Latest Technology: Powerful 15,000 Gauss
The degausser’s user-friendly input system provides effortless loading of various sized hard drives and tape media without the need for adapters. Simply slide the hard drive or tape cartridge into the drawer, push the start button, and it emerges completely erased. Since it does not rely on software, the T-1.5 also has the ability to erase failed or damaged hard drives and tapes, completely and permanently, regardless of the operating system.

Easy To Use
This easy-to-use unit features simple on/off operation with the push of a button and a very simple input drawer. Simply insert the media into the drawer, press the button, and your media will emerge completely degaussed. It features convenient table-top operation. It is manufactured in the USA.

Handles A Variety of Media Formats
The T-1.5 15,000 Gauss Degausser will erase all hard drive and tape formats that fit in the 6” x 4.3” x 1” degaussing drawer. No special adapters are required.

Government Mandate Compliance
The T-1.5 15,000 Gauss Degausser meets 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
  • HIPAA (Health Information Portability and Accountability Act)
  • PIPEDA (Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act)
  • California Senate Bill 1386

Deployment Solutions
As the best data security solution is always to process your media on site, we recommend purchasing this unit with the companion carrying case, which makes this heavy desk-top machine easily transportable for off-site or field data erasure applications. Simply ship this degausser to any office location where your media is slated for erasure.
