If you require to erase a range of magnetic media including
high density metal tapes and cassettes then the SV91 DLT/LTO
tape eraser is up to the job. The SV91DLT/LTO is one of
the fastest degausser machines too, taking as little as
ten seconds to completely erase a cassette.
It is simple to use and its compact table top operation
provides a thoroughly effective and low cost means to
degauss Betacam SP, D2, Mll, DAT, 8mm and other high coercivity
tapes. The SV91 DLT/LTO degausser is a compact, low noise,
manually operated tape eraser that sits neatly on a table
top and has been designed very much with Security operations
in mind as its powerful degaussing fields can erase even
metal particle tape.
The SV91 DLT/LTO degausser is ideal for the security
conscious, low volume operator who wants to have a professional
low budget solution to eliminate magnetic media security
The SV91 DLT/LTO security degausser is UK government approved
and certified 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 SV91 DLT/LTO is approved at the Lower Level.
This means any magnetic media (holding RESTRICTED or less)
may be regarded as NOT PROTECTIVELY MARKED after being
The SV91 DLT/LTO degausser 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 SV91 DLT/LTO 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).
NATO Numbers: 5836-99-591-3345 (50Hz) 5836-99-500-5299
The SV91 DLT/LTO security degausser has been approved
by Governments and meets the specified requirements of
the CESG Degausser Standard for the secure erasure and
destruction of information and data stored on magnetic
media up to the restricted and below level. Also meets
German security approval DIN33858.
Note: After degaussing some media are not reusable
