V91 MAX  High Energy HDD & Tape Degausser

V91 MAX High Energy HDD & Tape Degausser

The V91 MAX High Energy Hard Disk Drive and Tape Degausser is a 7,000 gauss second generation, high energy, degausser especially designed for the complete erasure of today’s high coercivity computer tapes and hard disk drives. This powerful eraser is ideal for low-volume users who require a highly efficient non-continuous degausser.

With an effective, field strength of up to 7,000 gauss, the V91 HDD MAX is capable of erasing hard disk drives with high density coercivity levels.

With figures in excess of -75dB for high energy metal tapes and up to -90dB on standard oxide tapes, complete erasure is assured every time with erasure times running as little as 20 seconds per cassette.

Powerful enough to erase hard drives, LTO, DLT, SDLT, 3592 and more, the V91 HDD MAX is a compact, low noise, manually operated degausser that sits neatly on a table top. This machine requires a 220 VAC; 60 HZ electricity power source.

The operational duty cycle of the V91 HDD MAX Degausser is non-continuous, with a typical throughput of 20 hard drives or DLT tapes per hour.

The machine comes standard with a 3 year warranty, with an optional two year warranty extension available.

PLEASE NOTE: Available only in 220V; 60Hz format. (Americas Only)

We recommend purchasing this unit with the companion carrying case, which makes this heavy desk-top machine easily transportable.
