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
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).
