SV90 CESG Approved Degausser

The SV90 is able to perform automatic erasure of high-density magnetic media achieved by applying a highly focused magnetic field created by Verity Systems exclusive multi-axis, 'pole tip' design. The tapes or cassettes are placed in the drawer compartment and rotated within the powerful 7000 Gauss field ensuring uniform and complete erasure.

The SV90 can cope with a range of media including tapes of up to 16 inches diameter. Up to fifty reels or two hundred cassettes can be efficiently and quietly erased per hour, the SV90 operates continuously and is quiet, cool and efficient.

The Verity SV90 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 SV590 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 SV90 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 SV90 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
