  • Our most innovative degausser, the HD-3WXL delivers a wish list of practical features and options. Compact and easy-to-use, the HD-3WXL is a high-speed, high-volume degausser that fully and permanently erases all data contained on high-coercivity (magnetic) hard drives and tape media—with no adapters needed. The HD-3WXL includes a  SCAN-1 scanner and software package to create an audit-worthy media destruction report as you degauss.

    Small Footprint. Big Advantages.
    With its continuous-duty rating, the HD-3WXL can erase up to 3600 drives or tapes per hour (7,200 a day) with no cool down needed.

    Independently certified to meet both CE safety and compatibility standards worldwide. Built-in safeguards check the stored power and display the field strength during each erase cycle, ensuring complete erasure.

    Report capable
    Included is our SCAN-1 scanner and destruction report software package to scan hard drive serial numbers to create a media destruction report during the degaussing process.

    Erases all hard drive and tape formats that fit into the 1.7 x 4.5 x 5.9 in. media slot.

    The degauss cycle starts as soon as you insert the media into the slot. Once erasure is successfully completed and verified by internal safeguards, the HD-3WXL releases the media down the exit slide.

    Plugs into standard wall outlets in offices around the world.

    Takes up less than a square foot of floor space and weighs just 66 lbs.
