V92 Tapemaster DLT Degausser

The V92 Tapemaster DLT Degausser is a powerful inexpensive high energy eraser available for users who require an efficient powerful high energy degausser. The Model V92 has a very high gauss rating of 4,000 gauss and erases all DLT tape, including Super DLT, as well as digital video and super digital video tape, DVC Pro, 4 mm and 8 mm, Hi 8, Mammoth 2, and AIT 2 cassettes. It erases hard disk drives and Exabyte and Travan data cartridges, as well as Beta, U-Matic and S-VHS cartridges.

The compact table-top machine is especially designed to handle all metal particle tape and DLT IV tape. It is suitable for data processing centers, data security installations, and media users who must erase a wide variety of different kinds of media. Erasure time is very fast, and most tape cartridges can be erased in less than 5 seconds.

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 "V92 DLT Tape Master Degausser". The DLT Tape Master will erase all old data and formats in 10 seconds leaving the tapes completely clear and ready to use in DLT1 drives.
