The Garner TS-1 produces a single, focused, magnetic pulse lasting less than 50 milliseconds. The focused intensity allows the TS-1 to erase today’s highest coercivity media, while also limiting the magnetic field exposure to 1 second for every 20 pieces of media degaussed.

The Average Operational Distance (AOD) from the TS-1 operator to the front of the unit is 12-18 inches (30-45 cm). The American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists (ACGIH) recommends that whole body exposure to continuous static magnetic fields be limited to 600 gauss for an 8 hour shift. A person operating the TS-1 continuously for 8 hours would be exposed to less than 1% of the recommended limit because of the short duration of each pulse from the TS-1 (50 milliseconds) and the extremely small magnetic field outside of the unit (<49 gauss, AOD).
To put all these numbers into perspective, the chart below summarizes gauss field findings on common items.

A smart phoneemits 240 gauss while playing music or on a call. Ear buds that come with a typical phone or music player emit over 200 gauss for each ear bud. The higher quality the ear bud speaker, the more gauss emitted due to the higher quality of the speaker magnets.
The phone and ear bud speakers are continuous fields whereas the TS-1 field is only on for 1/20th of a second per 45 second cycle. The TS-1’s magnetic field exposure does not approach the magnetic field levels individuals are exposed to on a daily basis when using common personal items.

Garner Receives President's "E" Award
Local Manufacturer Receives President’s “E” Award for U.S. Exporting Achievements
ROSEVILLE, CA –– Garner Products, Inc., a manufacturer in Roseville and designer of NSA-listed hard drive degaussers and physical hard drive destroyers, is proud to announce that U.S. Secretary of Commerce, Wilber Ross presented Garner Products with the President’s “E” award for Exports at a ceremony in Washington, D.C., on May 23, 2019. The President’s “E” Award is the highest recognition that any United States entity can receive for its ongoing significant contributions to the expansion of U.S. exports.
“Garner Products has demonstrated a sustained commitment to export expansion. The “E” Awards Committee was very impressed with Garner Products’ product modifications to support increased international sales. The company’s presence in approximately 85 countries was also particularly notable. Garner Products’ achievements have undoubtedly contributed to national export expansion efforts that support the U.S. economy and create American jobs,” said Secretary Ross in his congratulatory letter to the company announcing its selection.
“We want to thank the U.S. Department of Commerce. We’re extremely honored and grateful for this recognition and for being presented this prestigious award.” said Ronald Stofan, president of Garner Products. “I’d also like to thank Garner’s hard-working and dedicated team members and business partners whose efforts have made our international expansion possible.”
In 2018, U.S. exports were the highest on record with U.S. services at $821.1 billion and U.S. exports of goods reaching $1.7 trillion, demonstrating how American private enterprise can not only survive, but thrive, in the international market.
In total, Secretary Ross honored 48 U.S. companies from across the country with the President’s “E” Award for Exports for their role in strengthening the U.S. economy by sharing American ingenuity outside of our borders.
About the “E” Awards
U.S. companies are nominated for the “E” Awards through the U.S. Commercial Service, part of the Department’s International Trade Administration. With offices across the United States and in embassies and consulates around the world, the International Trade Administration lends its expertise at every stage of the exporting process by promoting and facilitating exports and investment into the United States; administering Anti-Dumping and Countervailing Duties orders; and removing, reducing, or preventing foreign trade barriers.
In 1961, President John F. Kennedy signed an executive order reviving the World War II “E” symbol of excellence to honor and provide recognition to America’s exporters. A criterion for the award is based on four years of successive export growth in one or more international markets. For more information about the “E” Awards and the benefits of exporting, visit www.export.gov.
