The HD-1T degausser enables you to quickly and efficiently erase multiple tapes and hard drives at once. With nothing to assemble or disassemble each time the HD-1T with it's advanced field strength ensures complete erasure of data on hard disk drives and magnetic tape.


The HD-1T meets DoD requirements for purging classified information on longitudinal and perpendicular magnetic disk storage devices up to 5000 Oersteds and magnetic tape storage devices up to 2800 Oersteds1.





  • Simple operation: open door, insert media and press the start button (no disassembly or adaptors needed)
  • Superior magnetic fi eld strength
  • Trusted - NSA approved, listed in the "NSA Evaluated Products List - Degausser"
  • Efficient as it accepts multiple pieces of media per cycle
  • Automatic operation for quick and easy erasure
  • Its quick with a 40 second cycle time, one-pass operation, continuous duty
  • It comes with wheels which allows it to be rolled into a closet for storage or down the hall to another office


Independent scientific testing confirms this degausser erases longitudinal (LMR) and perpendicular (PMR) disk storage devices with a Coercivity of 5000 Oersteds and tape media with a Coercivity of 2800 Oersteds.


Media Size
Chamber accommodates tapes and hard drives up to 1 inch (26 mm) high by 4.3 inches (109 mm) wide by 7.3 inches (186 mm) deep including floppy disks, zip disks, DLT, LTO, 8mm, DDS, VHS and other hard disk drives without disassembly. The HD-1T can accomodate multiple laptop hard drives and multiple tapes per cycle.


Sales Points

  • The HD-1T is approved by the NSA to erase 5000 Oe. disk media and 2800 Oe. tape media as listed in the DEPL. No other degausser is listed in the DEPL as being capable of erasing higher coercivity media.
  • The HD-1T degausser’s superior fi eld strength will support the erasure of new high coercivity media farther into the future than any other degausser. The HD-1T generates 14,000 Gauss (1.4 Tesla) magnetic fi elds. Sci en tifi c testing confirms the HD-1T erases 5000 Oe. disk media and 2800 Oe. Tape media at 45% of it's potential field strength.
  • The compact footprint (30” wide x 28.5” deep) requires minimal floor space in an office or data center. The wheels, paired with the compact design, provide effortless movement into a storage closet or another office. The degaussing chamber is positioned for any operator; no adjustments are necessary.
  • Electromagnetic technology. The HD-1T electromagnet degausser has an unlimited shelf life; the HD-1T can be used as long as customers have the media to degauss. The capacitive discharge design generates no heat, continuous duty, zero down time, no magnet degradation, and requires no technical upgrades.
  • Simple, easy, quiet operation. The HD-1T is easy to load and does not require adapters. The LED display provides simple operator instructions: Open door, insert media, shut door, press START. Degaussing occurs in 1 second, indicator light confirms secure erasure.
  • Degauss multiple tapes per cycle. The HD-1T chamber can accommodate up to 10 tapes, allowing customers to get more done in less time.
  • The magnetic field experienced around the HD-1T is less than the earths magnetic field which makes it perfectly safe
  • It comes with world wide on-site service and toll free phone support. Depot level and on-site service is available for quick and easy support; our customers experience less down time.
  • Manufactured in the USA. Data Security Inc.
