The versatile, conveyor-belt operated CDS-2500A quickly erases all magnetic tape formats up to six inches wide and up to 2400 oersted. The CDS-2500A’s dual degaussing coils let you choose from two field strengths. On low field strength, the CDS-2500A provides continuous-duty erasure of 3480/3490, VHS, diskettes and audio cassettes without overheating—at speeds of more than 90 3480/3490 tapes per minute. The high-field setting allows you to erase metal-particle tape formats up to 2400 oersted.
Low field strength delivers nonstop, high-speed erasure of 3480/3490, VHS, diskettes and audio cassettes. Flip the switch to high strength to erase SDLT, LTO, 3590 and other metal-particle tapes.
Easy to use
Press the “on” switch, select your field strength, and place tapes on the conveyor belt. The CDS-2500A takes care of the rest.
Lets you choose your pace—up to 60 feet per minute.
Dual degaussing coils
Placed at a 90-degree angle, the “V” coil configuration delivers strong horizontal and vertical fields for maximum erasure.
Built-in sensors monitor degaussing coil temperatures, operate the cooling fans, and turn off the conveyor belt and degaussing field if coil heat moves beyond the normal range.
The CDS-2500A operates off a standard 110 VAC wall outlet, but can come configured with other power connections for international operations.
The CDS-2500A doesn’t rely on software for erasure, which means it can erase any magnetic video, audio, or data tape.
Maintain Archival Security
As technology moves to hard drive and solid-state media storage, it’s important to fully erase old media before disposal or repurposing. The CDS-2500A makes the erasure process fast, easy, and truly secure.
The CDSS-2500A can be configured for operation in countries around the world.
CDS-2500A— Optional Accessories
The CDS-2500A comes fully equipped with everything you need to degauss tape media. We also offer optional slides to step up the ease and increase the speed of tape degaussing.
Input Slide (IS-CDS) and Output Slide (OS-CDS)
Slides make it easier to move tapes onto and off of the conveyor belt.
