The DataGauss LG MAX has been designed with simplicity in mind. Releasing the catch lifts the lid, allowing media to be placed into the chamber. Closing the lid and pressing the ‘erase’ button on the control panel activates the charging of the powerful degaussing magnetic field. When the display says the degauss cycle is complete, the lid can be opened and the media removed. The entire process takes just 15 seconds.
Throughout the whole erase cycle the on-board processor monitors the erase procedure ensuring that it is completed correctly. The operator is shown erase progress and immediately alerted to any interruptions in the cycle by messages on the LCD control panel.
The DataGauss LG MAX is designed to help you comply with the following Government Mandates that require destruction of sensitive information stored on Hard Drives and Backup Tapes before their disposal.

Note: After degaussing, hard drives should not be reused as they are stressed in the erasure process. Some backup tapes may not be reusable after degaussing due to the servo track being erased.
