Proton 1100 Degaussing Wand


The Proton 1100 Degausser Wand is designed to provide maximum security level degaussing. A multi-polar design insures permanent data erasure for a wide range of magnetic media. It has been tested and approved for erasure of both Longitudinal (LMR) and Perpendicular (PMR) magnetic storage devices up to and including 5000 Oersteds.




For disk drives, diskpacks, drum memories and other magnetic media.


The Proton 1100 Degausser Wand is designed to provide maximum security level media degaussing for a wide range of magnetic media.


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.


The Proton 1100 has been tested for Perpendicular Magnetic Disk Storage Devices and can securely erase up to and including 5000 Oersteds
