With a 20,000 Gauss field, the TS-1XT NSA-EPL listed degausser completely erases all data on hard drives and tapes in under 15 seconds. The TS-1XT comes with a SCAN-1X scanner and software package voucher to create an audit-worthy media destruction report as you degauss.
Listed on the NSA/CSS Evaluated Products List for the erasure of Top Secret data
Generates 20,000+ Gauss (2 Tesla) magnetic field for complete erasure of hard drives and tape
Complete data elimination in 15 seconds
LCD numerically displays the gauss level after each cycle
Erases up to 1,295 (1.8 in.), 865 (2.5 in.), and 150 (3.5 in.) drives per hour
SCAN-1X hard drive and tape destruction report software and scanner voucher included
Upgradeable to IRONCLAD Erasure and Destruction Verification System

Combine the TS-1XT degausser with Garner’s exclusive IRONCLAD® Erasure Verification with JPG Image Capture System for complete, permanent, and verifiable data elimination. Only Garner provides the best audit trail and proof-of-erasure reports with JPG images of degaussed hard drives and a record of Gauss field strength for each cycle.
Permanent Erasure of Top-Secret Data
Uniformly distributed 20,000-gauss power magnetically erases high-coercivity hard drives and tapes, ensuring Top-Secret classified data can never be recovered. The TS-1XT is the ultimate solution for the permanent erasure of all magnetic data.
Best Practices: Degauss Before you Destroy
Physical destruction of hard drives alone leaves data behind (i.e. shredding, crushing, piercing, bending)
The NSA-listed TS-1XT Degausser eliminates all data on the disc platters
After degaussing, physical destruction from the PD-5 gives visual confirmation that the hard drive has been securely processed and is ready to leave the controlled environment for disposal or shredding
Note: Solid-state media cannot be degaussed. Physical destruction of the media with the Garner SSD-1 solid-state destroyer is recommended before the media leaving its secure environment.
Degauss vs. Overwrite
Overwriting is a method where a random pattern of usually "1" and "0" is written to every part of the drive, frequently three times, to obliterate the underlying data. The advantage of this method is the drive can be re-used. The disadvantages are: it takes a skilled operator to ensure the overwriting is done correctly; non-functioning sectors of the hard drive cannot be overwritten allowing data to remain on the drive; it takes a considerable amount of time-hours, and therefore electricity; and it is not regarded as failsafe, or permissible for the highest data security standards such as the NSA, CIA, or DoD.
Degaussing is the process of exposing the media to a strong magnetic field of sufficient strength to magnetically destroy the data. The advantages of degaussing are: a skilled operator is not required to operate a degausser; the magnetic field destroys all data on the drive in approximately 1/10 of a second regardless of whether the drive is functioning or non-functioning. Degaussing is recognized by the NSA and DoD as an appropriate method of secure data destruction. The disadvantage of degaussing is the hard drive cannot be re-used.
After degaussing, the data on a degaussed hard drive simply no longer exists.
