HD-3WXL High Power Hard Drive Degausser

The HD-3WXL is the newest and most innovative product in Athana’s line of hard drive and tape degaussers. The user friendly input system provides effortless loading of various sized hard drives and tape media without the need for adapters. Once degaussed, the media is automatically released down the exit chute. The HD-3WXL erases all hard drive and tape formats that fit into the 6.75 x 4.5 x 1.7 inch degaussing chamber. Media formats include hard drives, LTO, SuperDLT, DLT, 9940, 3592, AIT and more (see listing below). With a continuous duty rating (no cooling necessary) and 10 second cycle time, even large quantities of media can be erased in a very short period of time.

The HD-3WXL fulfills all your data security needs by deleting all data on your hard drives or magnetic media. With a continuous duty rating (no cooling necessary) and 10 second cycle time, even large quantities of media can be erased in a very short period of time.

HD-3WXL Operations:
The HD-3WXL is exceptionally user-friendly. Simply slide your media into the slot on the left side of the HD-3WXL and push the "Erase" button. Within two seconds your media will be completely erased and will automatically slide out the right side of the HD-3WXL. It just doesn’t get any easier than that! If space is at a premium, the HD-3WXL's compact design takes up just over 1 square foot.

Degauss vs.Overwrite:
The HD-3WXL produces an erasing field several times stronger than the erasing fields produced by the read/write heads in hard drives and tape drives. This makes for a deeper and more efficient erasure than software based wiping programs. Note however, that the HD-3WXL will destroy your hard drive in the process. Since the HD-3WXL does not rely on software, the HD-3WXL will also completely and permanently erase failed and damaged hard drives regardless of the operating system or interface.

Government Mandates:
The HD-3WXL will assist you in meeting compliance standards for government mandates requiring complete elimination of sensitive information stored on magnetic media prior to re-use or disposal including:

  • PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry) Data Security Standard
  • NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) Guidelines for Media Sanitization
  • NIST SP 800-36
  • NIST SP 800-88>
