- SV90: Automatic
The SV90 is able to perform automatic erasure
of high-density magnetic media achieved by applying a
highly focused magnetic field created by the 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
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 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 SV90 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).
