DataGone Degausser

High energy, automatic hard disk drive and backup tape degausser

  • High Volume

  • 200 HDD per hour

  • 8 second gauss time


The DataGone degausser delivers fast and failsafe erasure of large volumes of hard disk drives and back-up tapes. The powerful automatically operated DataGone magnetic tape eraser provides sanitization of hard drives in just 8 seconds which means you can achieve complete erasure of 200 hard drives or back up tapes every hour.

The DataGone is also available with our unique Data Destruction Auditor which enables you to document and verify your hard drive sanitization/erasure and create data protection audit-ready reports.

Easy Operation

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.


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