Proton’s newest NSA degausser erases hard drives and other magnetic media in 20 seconds or less. It produces a magnetic field of at least 20,000 Gauss (2 Tesla) per cycle and is approved to handle Top Secret / Classified data. For performance verification, its internal Gaussmeter guarantees every cycle meets NSA specifications. The T-5 is the ultimate degausser for efficiency and data security.

Features and Benefits

  • Listed on the National Security Agency’s Evaluated Products List (NSA EPL-Degausser) and meets U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) requirements for sanitizing Top Secret/Classified data.
  • Performance verification: internal meter that measures field strength (in Tesla) and reports it to operator on LCD to ensure it’s operating to NSA specs for every cycle
  • Extremely fast cycle time for maximum productivity
  • Fully automatic operation with no drawer to open and close; insert media into top slot and push start button CESG approved (UK), CE certified (EU) and NATO listed
  • Allows compliance with recognized security standards and regulations, including NIST, HIPAA, FACTA, PCI DSS, GLBA, PIPEDA, IRS, GDPR, etc.
  • Stores energy from previous cycles to reduce subsequent cycle times and save energy
  • Manufactured in the USA in ISO 9001 certified facilities
  • Maintenance free; 1-year parts and labor warranty included and extended warranty available
  • Options: 12 Volt battery operation, deployment case with wheels, barcode scanner
