Our most innovative degausser, the HD-3WXL delivers a wish list of practical features and options. Compact and easy-to-use, the HD-3WXL is a high-speed, high-volume degausser that fully and permanently erases all data contained on high-coercivity (magnetic) hard drives and tape media—with no adapters needed. The HD-3WXL includes a SCAN-1 scanner and software package to create an audit-worthy media destruction report as you degauss.
With its continuous-duty rating, the HD-3WXL can erase up to 3600 drives or tapes per hour (7,200 a day) with no cool down needed.
Independently certified to meet both CE and ANSI safety and compatibility standards worldwide. Built-in safeguards check the stored power and display the field strength during each erase cycle, ensuring complete erasure.
Included is our SCAN-1 scanner and destruction report software package to scan hard drive serial numbers to create a media destruction report during the degaussing process.
Erases all hard drive and tape formats that fit into the 1.7 x 4.5 x 5.9 in. media slot.
The degauss cycle starts as soon as you insert the media into the slot. Once erasure is successfully completed and verified by internal safeguards, the HD-3WXL releases the media down the exit slide.
Plugs into standard wall outlets in offices around the world.
Takes up less than a square foot of floor space and weighs just 66 lbs.
Offers an ideal, low-noise solution for office environments.
Enables you to meet government mandates that require complete elimination of sensitive information stored on magnetic media prior to re-use (tape only) or disposal.
Permanent Erasure Means Data Is Gone Forever
Because the HD-3WXL provides high-powered magnetic erasure, degaussed data can never be recovered. Magnetic erasure also means there’s no software to buy, update, or upgrade. And the HD-3WXL technology used to erase magnetic hard drives and tape media will never become obsolete due to software or driver modifications.
Degauss vs. Overwrite
The HD-3WXL produces an erasing field many times stronger than the fields produced by the read/write heads in hard drives and tape drives. This achieves a deeper and more efficient erasure than software-based wiping programs. Unlike overwriting, the HD-3WXL generates an erase field that encompasses the entire hard drive, leaving no area unchanged. Since the HD-3WXL does not rely on software and requires no physical connection to the hard drive, such as a cable, it completely and permanently erases working and nonworking hard drives, regardless of the operating system or interface.
Secure and Compliant
The HD-3WXL will assist you in satisfying government and industry data standards, including:
California Senate Bill 1386
DOD Up to Secret Classification
GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation)
GLBA (Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act)
HIPAA (Health Information Portability and Accountability Act)
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)
Hard drives erased with the HD-3WXL have been tested and verified by hard drive manufacturers, information recovery companies, and private forensic laboratories, which independently confirmed that no data was recoverable.
The HD-3WXL is independently tested and certified to meet CE and ANSI safety and compatibility standards worldwide.
