An NSA Evaluated Products List High Security Degausser, utilizes Garner’s proven solid-state technology to provide a 20,000 gauss erasing field ensuring complete hard drive and tape erasure of classified and “Top Secret” data in 45 seconds.
Garner’s built-in magnetic field verification system along with onboard diagnostics, confirm the field strength of each and every erase cycle guaranteeing complete erasure every time. Further, the field strength is displayed numerically and graphically allowing the operator to perform periodic performance verification eliminating the need for a separate instrument to check the erasing force. Redundant error checking before, during and after each erase cycle ensures the TS-1 is performing in peak condition.
Compact and portable, the TS-1 can be easily transported to the location of the media for on-site erasure and de-classification.
TS-1 Features and Capabilities
The TS-1 is the newest and most innovative product in the Garner line of degaussers. With 2 Tesla (20,000 gauss) of power, the TS-1 erases the highest coercivity magnetic media available today. The TS-1 erases 5,000 Oe hard drives (laptop, desktop and network up to 1″ high) and up to 2,800 Oe high coercivity tape media, including all formats of LTO (1,2,3,4), SuperDLT I & II, DLT, AIT, 3590 Series, 8mm and more, all without any adapters. With a continuous duty rating (no cooling breaks necessary), quiet operation and a 45 second cycle time, the TS-1 offers a fast, cost effective erasing solution for Top Secret data.
The TS-1 is exceptionally user-friendly. Simply place your media into the drawer of the TS-1 and push the “Erase” button. Within 45 seconds, the media is erased. Open the drawer and remove the media. It just doesn’t get any easier than that!
Safeguards built into the TS-1 check the stored power before each erase cycle ensuring complete erasure every time. In addition, a proprietary gauss sensor measures the erasing force in the coil at the time of discharge. If the electrical power or the erasing force is less than specification, the TS-1 will report an error message to the operator and not complete the cycle until the TS-1 meets both power and erasing force requirements. Messages on the LCD Display and lighted push buttons report the status of the TS-1 to the operator.
The TS-1 is an NSA Listed Degausser. NSA Listed Degaussers have been laboratory tested to ensure complete erasure of hard drives and tape media. The TS-1 is approved to erase hard drive and tape media containging U.S. government classifi ed “Top-Secret” data. This approval rating also meets all compliance standards for government mandates requiring complete elimination of information stored on magnetic media prior to re-use or disposal including:
- NSA/CSS/DoD Top Secret
- NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) Guidelines for Media Sanitization
- NIST SP 800-36
