Description of the Proton 8000 Hard Drive and Magnetic Media Degausser

This tabletop degausser is compact and quiet, yet still powerful enough to completely erase data from hard drives (3 1/3" and 5 1/4") and a variety of magnetic media. Reels of tape from 1/4" to 2" thick and up to 16" diamater can be degaussed easily using the handy foot-control mechanism, keeping the process remarkably hands-free. Other magentic media that the Proton 8000 will degauss include VHS tapes, compact cassettes, and any Type I, II or III computer media. Although compact, the Proton 8000 degausser has a large work surface to allow you to degauss various sized magnetic media. What's especially helpful is the status indicator, which will confirm operation and provide visual confirmation of degaussing levels.
