V91 HD/DLT Degausser

The V91 HD/DLT Eraser is a universal high energy eraser available for low-volume users who require a highly efficient non-continuous degausser. Powerful enough to erase data from computer hard drives or metal tapes, it is a compact, low noise, manually operated unit that sits neatly on a table top. It is also suitable for Audio, DAT, VHS and S-VHS, VHS Digital, 4&8mm, Beta SP/digital, video cassettes, floppy disks. Computer cartridges: DC, TK 50/70/85, DLT 3489/3490/3590, 4 & 8mm.

To re-use your previously formatted DLTtape IV™ tapes in the new DLT1 tape drive, Athana has introduced the V91 DLT Bulk Eraser. Anyone upgrading their existing DLT drive with the new DLT1 drive should understand that their existing inventory of recorded DLTtape IV™ media may not be usable in the DLT1 without thoroughly degaussing them before hand. Media recorded in either the DLT7000 or DLT8000 format will be automatically rejected to protect the data on the tape.
The problem is easily solved by erasing all existing DLT tapes on Athana's V91 bulk eraser. The V91 will erase all old data and formats in 10 seconds leaving the tapes completely clear and ready to use in DLT1 drives.

Hard Drives
The vulnerability of information stored on PC hard drives is a recognised security risk. Unlike other PC data storage media the hard drive always stays with the PC. Every time a PC leaves a company’s control all the data and company information will go with it.
Even if the hard drive breaks down the storage platters will still contain information which could be read once repaired.
In keeping with our policy of recognising user requirements we have introduced the V91 PC hard drive eraser. The V91 is capable of removing data from PC hard drives in less than 20 seconds. Although in most cases this will render the hard drive inoperative, the cost of a replacement hard drive cannot be compared to the cost to a company if sensitive information can be read by a third party.
Even if only used infrequently the V91 provides a cost security solution to the protection of company, client and sensitive computer data.
