New Degausser is Fast, Safe, Easy to Use

For hospitals, banks, and other businesses that periodically destroy sensitive data, the EMP-1000 Electromagnetic Degausser makes erasing computer hard drives or magnetic tape fast, safe, and easy. Available from Security Engineered Machinery, the EMP-1000 features the industry’s first high-resolution LCD touch screen with multicolored icons for operator control and feedback.

The compact unit (11.4”W x 19”D x 23”H) fits on most desks and tables. Other user-friendly features include a feed drawer that locks during operation and opens automatically after degaussing is complete. The operator simply places the drive (up to 1.05” thick) or tape in the drawer, closes the drawer, and pushes a button. The EMP-1000 automatically identifies and “syncs” to the outlet’s voltage (110 or 220 V at 50-60 Hz AC).

The magnetic force of the unit’s 1.6 Tesla (16,000 gauss) capacitive discharge pulse erases today’s high-density (high coercivity) PMR and LMR media. The EMP-1000 detects the strength of the magnetic field during operation and then confirms the item has been fully degaussed. Initial cycle time is 15 seconds; subsequent cycle times are 10 seconds or less.

The EMP-1000 is covered by a one-year warranty.

A leader in the secure destruction of electronic media and paper documents, Security Engineered Machinery, ISO 14001 registered, is the largest direct supplier of data-destruction equipment in the United States and operates the largest secure destruction facility in the Northeast, adjacent to its headquarters in Westboro, Massachusetts.
