Easy Operation

The DataGauss XL has been designed with simplicity in mind. Releasing the catch, lifts the lid allowing media to be placed into the chamber. Closing the lid and pressing the 'erase' button on the control panel activates the charging of the powerful degaussing magnetic field. When the display says the degauss cycle is complete, the lid can be opened and the media removed. The entire process takes just 45 seconds.

Throughout the whole erase cycle the on-board processor monitors the erase procedure ensuring that it is completed correctly. The operator is shown erase progress and immediately alerted to any interruptions in the cycle by messages on the LCD control panel.


Transportation Case: An optional heavy-duty transportation case with wheels is available for the DataGauss XL, enabling you to safely transfer your degausser by road or air, ideal if you have a requirement to erase media at multiple locations.
