HD-2X Degausser

10,000+ Gauss

hd 2 message 01

The compact, economical HD-2X (10,000+ gauss) automatic degausser is for those who need to permanently erase data from hard drive or tapes, but don’t need a high-volume degausser. The HD-2X is ideal in office settings for erasing laptop, desktop, and network high-coercivity (magnetic) drives up to 1.25 inches high, as well as the full range of tape cartridge media—with no adapters needed. It’s also very easy to use and in less than a minute, eliminates all data for good. 

HD-2X|10,000+ Gauss


HD-2X IRONCLAD Workstation

Absolute erasure. Affordable price.


Enables you to meet government and industry standards that require complete erasure of sensitive information stored on magnetic media prior to disposal.


CE/ANSI certified


Built-in safeguards check the stored power and display the field strength during each erase cycle, ensuring complete erasure every time.

Report capable

Allows you to add our IRONCLAD or SCAN-1X audit report packages.


Ruggedly constructed with proven solid-state technology, the HD-2X delivers 10,000+ gauss to completely erase all high-coercivity hard drives and tapes.

Easy to use

Simply place the hard drive or tape in the drawer. Closing the drawer automatically starts the degaussing operation. In less than 60 seconds, the display lets you know the media is fully erased.


Because erasure by degaussing requires no software or physical connection to the hard drive, such as a cable, the HD-2X can erase any magnetic media, regardless of operating system or interface, even if the media has failed or is damaged.

Office ready

Lightweight (34 lbs.) and small enough to fit on a desk, the HD-2X plugs into standard wall outlets. Its quiet operation and continuous-duty rating (no cooling required) make it perfect for office environments.


Takes just a minute to achieve complete and permanent erasure.


At 34 pounds, the HD-2X is easy to move from room to room. The optional wheeled transport case allows you to take the HD-2X to the media for greater data security.


Permanent Erasure Means Data Is Gone Forever

The HD-2X generates 10,000+ gauss field ensuring complete erasure. 

Degauss vs. Overwrite

The HD-2X uses our proven solid-state technology to generate 10,000+ gauss erasure field that’s far more powerful than the fields produced by the read/write heads in hard drives and tape drives. Unlike overwriting, the HD-2X generates an erase field that encompasses the entire hard drive or tape, leaving no area unchanged. The HD-2X requires no physical connection, such as a cable, enabling it to erase data on working and nonworking hard drives.

Secure and Compliant

The HD-2X will help you meet government and industry standards requiring complete erasure of sensitive data prior to disposal, including:

  • California Senate Bill 1386
  • DOD (Emergency Destruction)
  • FCC
  • GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation)
  • GLBA (Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act)
  • HIPAA (Health Information Portability and Accountability Act)
  • IRS 1075
  • NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) Guidelines for Media Sanitization
  • NIST SP 800-36
  • NIST SP 800-88r1
  • PCI DSS 3.2 (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard)
  • PIPEDA (Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act)

International Standards

The HD-2X is independently tested and certified to meet CE and ANSI safety and compatibility standards worldwide.

HD-2X Affordable Security— 
Optional Package and Accessories

Perfect for multiple sites, the optional transport case lets you take the HD-2X to the media, eliminating the security risk of transporting media. Combine the HD-2X with our NSA/CSS EPL-listed PD-5 Hard Drive and Solid-State Memory Destroyer for a self-contained, full-security package.
