Datagone Hard Drive & Backup Tape Degausser
The DATAGONE is a fully automatic degausser for Hard Disc’s and Backup tapes. It uses pulse discharge technology and is fully processor controlled which enables the DATAGONE to offer a complete and secure erase on magnetic media. Media that can be degaussed includes Hard Drives that use both perpendicular and vertical recording techniques and most common backup tapes including DLT, LTO, 8mm, DDS and more.
The DataGone is a fully automatic, table top mounted degausser. Sliding the media into the aperture on the left hand side of the unit automatically starts the degauss cycle. When complete, the media is released and exits from the DataGone on the right hand side. The entire procedure takes just 8 seconds from start to finish.
Throughout the degauss cycle, the on-board processor monitors the procedure and progress messages are displayed on the LCD panel. If the degauss cycle is interrupted for any reason such as power loss or any fault condition, the media is retained in the DataGone and the operator is immediately alerted to the interruption on the LCD panel. When security is of the upmost importance the DataGone’s failsafe operation should be your degausser of choice.

Datagone-LG - with unique Erasure Log Software
The DataGone LG is a fully automatic, table top mounted degausser which comes with a software disk and a USB cable for connecting it to a PC or laptop. Once connected, open the Data Destruction Auditor software on the PC and enter details into the Data Destruction Auditor’s report record screen. Details such as organization name, operator name, date & time and information pertaining to the media itself can be entered manually. Alternatively an optional bar code scanner is available for fast input of information such as media serial numbers. Information on the degausser model will be automatically registered within the Data Destruction Auditor report record screen by clicking the “Find Machine” button on the Data Destruction Auditor screen.
Once all information has been inserted, slide the media into the aperture on the left hand side of the unit. Click the “Destroy” button on the Data Destruction Auditor’s screen which starts the erase/destruction process. Progress is shown on the screen and once complete, the completed process is recorded on screen, confirming the date and time of the successful erasure/destruction. The user can then print an immediate record of the media’s destruction by pressing the print button on screen or export the logs as a CSV file.
When complete, the media is released and exits from the DataGone on the right hand side. The entire procedure takes just 8 seconds from start to finish.
