Continuing the long line of HD-2 models, the HD-2X has been upgraded to over 10,000 gauss, nominal, or over 1 Tesla! The HD-2X has increased degaussing power yet is the same size, shape and cost of the HD-2 that has been a leader in the field of high quality, economical degaussers. Redesigned to accommodate drives made in the last 15 years and magnetic media anticipated for years to come, the HD-2X, with almost 20% greater degaussing power, still has the same power consumption, the same footprint and accepts the same accessories as the HD-2.
The Garner HD-2X erases hard drives (laptop, desktop and network up to 1" high) and high coercivity tape media, including all formats of LTO (1,2,3,4), SuperDLT I & II, DLT, 9940, 3590, AIT, 8mm and more, all without any adapters. With a continuous duty rating (no cooling necessary) quiet operation and a 60 second cycle time, the HD-2X can fit right on a desktop.

The HD-2X is exceptionally user-friendly. Simply place your media into the drawer on the right side of the HD-2X and push the "Erase" button. Within 60 seconds your media is erased. Open the drawer and remove your erased media. it just doesn't get any easier than that!
The HD-2X has been independently tested and certifi ed to meet both ANSI and CE standards. Built-in safeguards check the stored power before each erase cycle ensuring complete erasure every time. Audible tones and lighted push buttons report the status of the HD-2X to the operator.
Degauss vs. Overwrite:
- Generates 10,000+ gauss (1 Tesla) magnetic field for complete erasure of hard drives and tape
- Erases up to 480 (1.8 in.); 360 (2.5 in.); and 60 (3.5 in.) hard drives per hour
- Erases working and non-working hard drives
- Closing the drawer automatically starts the degauss cycle
- Built-in field verification system and on board diagnostics confirm the magnetic field strength of every erase cycle, ensuring complete erasure
- LCD display provides bar graph with numerical value to verify erasure
- Office quiet 60-second erase cycle
- Requires no cool down between cycles
- CE/ANSI certified
- Small footprint, fits on a desktop
- Lightweight (34 lbs.)
- Enhance portability with wheeled transport case
The HD-2X produces an erasing field many times stronger than the erasing fields produced by the read/write heads in hard drives and tape drives. The field strength along with the encompassing magnetic field ensure the data is no longer recoverable by computer or laboratory attacks. Since the HD-2X does not rely on software, the HD-2X will also completely and permanently erase failed and damaged hard drives regardless of the operating system or interface. Government Mandates:The Garner HD-2X 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:
