DataGauss XL-LG


download spec sheet

The DataGauss XL-LG is a state-of-the-art Pulse Technology degausser with an extra large degaussing chamber to accommodate both standard and extra large (full height) Hard Disk Drives and Backup Tapes AND a unique Erasure Log Software which provides a reporting tool and a record of media degaussed.


The DataGauss XL-LG is the most powerful, compact, continuous degausser for Hard Drives and Backup Tapes in the Verity range. Media that can be securely erased includes both Hard Drives that use Perpendicular and Longitudinal recording techniques up to 5000 Oersted's and all common Backup Tapes. Storage devices up to 6" x 1⅝" x 4" (165mm x 42mm x 114mm) can be securely erased.



The DataGauss XL-LG is a table top, chamber degausser, which makes operation safe, effective and simple for everyone.


It can be used stand alone or, if connected to a PC or laptop via USB cable, can be used in conjunction with the Erasure Log Software. This will log all the information related to the erasure and provide a printed report if required. The information logged includes details of the: processing company (including the operator and supervisor); media owner; degausser machine type; serial number, part number and size of the Hard Drive or Tape. Information is entered onto the software via keyboard or optional barcode scanner to speed up the data entry if required.


When the logging program has been opened on the PC and the DataGauss XL-LG is connected, the operator simply clicks on the "Find Machine" button for all the unit details to be automatically entered into the log including model, serial number and firmware version. The DataGauss XL-LG display will show it is in remote mode controlled by the PC.


Further data regarding operator, customer and media is then entered via keyboard (or optional barcode scanner) before the Hard Drive or Tape is placed into the degausser and the lid closed. The erasure is commenced by clicking the "Destroy" button on the screen which activates the charging of the powerful degaussing magnetic field.


A window opens on the screen showing the progress of the degaussing cycle. When the display shows the degauss cycle is complete the lid can be opened and the media removed. The entire process takes just 45 seconds. Throughout the whole erase cycle the on-board processor monitors the erase procedure ensuring that it is completed correctly. The operator is immediately alerted to any interruptions in the cycle by messages on the screen.


The lower portion of the screen now shows all the details of the erasure including Date, Time, Media Serial number, Capacitor Voltage, Magnetic Gauss Field and confirmation that the media was degaussed successfully.


If this data is highlighted and the print button pressed all the details on the screen along with all the data entered will be printed as a report. As new media is erased the details will be added to the Media Processed Log in the lower half of the screen. By highlighting erase records, the logs of one or more can be printed as required.


There is a Supervisor Section in the Software which is Password protected. This allows the Supervisor to decide which fields are required and which fields must be completed by the Operator. The log record is stored in the PC and can be archived at any time or exported as a .csv file.
