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
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
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).
