SV5000 CESG Conveyor Degausser

FOR volume erasure OF high-density metal tapes AND cassettes the SV5000's performance will satisfy the requirements. Automatically controlled by an electric eye the reels, disks or cassettes are placed on the wide conveyor belt where they are transported through the 4000 Gauss field.

Up to five thousand diskettes or five hundred VHS cassettes can be erased per hour. The SV5000 has been specifically designed to meet exacting performance criteria demanded and expected by security operations requiring safe, effective and secure management of their magnetic media.

The Verity SV5000 degausser is UK government approved to the CESG Degaussing Standard. This new Standard, which replaces the SEAP 8500 Degaussing Standard has two levels of degaussing:

Lower Level - for RESTRICTED and below.

Higher Level - for CONFIDENTIAL and above

Currently the SV5000 is approved at the Lower Level. This means any magnetic media (holding RESTRICTED or less) may be regarded as NOT PROTECTIVELY MARKED after being degaussed.

The SV5000 is subject to S(E)N 06/09. which requires all the SEAP-approved degaussers to be retested against the new CESG Degaussing Standard (at the Higher Level). At this time, the testing standard is not yet available.

The SV5000 may still be used to degauss magnetic media at CONFIDENTIAL and above, but the degaussed media is subject to additional handling requirements (detailed in S(E)N 06/09).

Warranty: One year parts and labour, optional extended warranty available
