The NSA listed, PDS-100 Destroyer exudes versatility and simplicity in one powerful machine. Simply insert the hard drive and sensors will automatically start the 10 second destruction cycle. A unique feature of the PDS-100 is its ability to operate manually if power is ever interrupted or unavailable. Simply grab the crank handle to continue securely destroying hard drives. With additional options available, it can be customized to any location and application. Using a degausser is the best way to ensure all data on hard drives and storage tapes is completely unrecoverable. The PDS-100 is a great accompaniment to a Proton degausser!

Description of the Proton PDS-100 Automatic Hard Drive Crusher

The Proton PDS-100 Hard Drive Crusher is NSA/CSS Evaluated and Listed for destruction. Handles all 3.5-inch Form Factor Drives including 1″, .65″ , 1.65″ & Laptop Hard Drives.

The PDS-100 Hard Drive Crusher takes physical hard drive destruction one step further than the PDS-75 by providing an automatic, motor driven operation. Simply insert the hard drive and sensors will automatically start an eight (8) second cycle. A unique feature of the PDS-100 is its ability to operate manually if power is ever interrupted or unavailable. Simply grab the crank handle to continue securely destroying hard drives. No stoppage or setup necessary.

Before Hard Drive Destruction

NOTE: To comply with recognized standards, including NSA/DoD regulations, a degausser must be used prior to destroying hard drives. In a typical national security operation, a destroyer is used in conjunction with a NSA listed degausser. Using a degausser is the only way to guarantee all data on hard drives and other magnetic media is completely unrecoverable. This is because it is possible to recover data from a mere piece of a hard drive that has not been degaussed. See Proton’s full line of degaussers to save on a degausser and destroyer bundle.

PSD-100 Hard Drive Destroyer Features

  • Hard drives are bent approximately 90 degrees, which bends/breaks the platters and damages the heads, motor and circuit board.
  • Maintenance free and completely self-contained. No messy fluids or external components to deal with and no adjustments or calibration necessary
  • Tested and used by NSA and DoD for destroying hard drives.
  • Customization is easy with additional options.
  • 18 months parts and labor warranty

Customization Options

  • Rear Output Slide: Hard drives are typically removed from the front of the unit, but this option allows for the ejection of the hard drives out the back of the unit. This enables hard drives to be discharged into a disposal bin or container and requires less operator handling.
  • Rackmountable Slide-out Shelf: For mounting in standard 19″ EIA racks. This option allows the user to conveniently stow the destroyer when not in use and pull it out when needed, saving all too valuable table-top space. This option includes the Mount Kit.
  • Mount Kit: This option allows the user to mount the drive destroyer to various surfaces, including carts, truck floors, racks, etc.
  • Deployment Case: A heavy duty Pelican® Case with wheels with custom insert made specifically for the destroyer.
