For disk drives, diskpacks, drum memories and other magnetic media.
The Proton 1100 Degaussing Wand is designed to provide maximum security level media degaussing for a wide range of magnetic media.
A multi-polar design insures minimum flux levels of 6,000 gauss and full hysteresis of all magnetic states.
Conventional magnetic recording devices (recording heads) cannot provide the flux density required to totally erase magnetic signatures. The magnetic information remains in the media after conventional erasing techniques and reformatting procedures. Only a high-energy magnetic circuit that provides a full-cycle (+ - + -) field can reliably erase this remnant magnetic information to a full security level.
A magnetic shield is provided for safe storage of the degaussing wand.
Proton 1100 effectively degausses disk drives, diskpacks, drum type memories, floppies and any flat-surface magnetic memory.
Proton 1100 is on the NSA Approved Products List
