Verity Systems, a developer and manufacturer of degaussers and bulk tape erasers, announced the launch of the V91 Max, a second generation degausser designed for the permanent and safe erasure of hard drives and high coercivity tapes.The new and improved V91 Max now produces a powerful 7,000 oersted electromagnetic, gauss field which destroys all information recorded on today’s high capacity media. This increased magnetic field will erase a hard disc drives in just 20 seconds. While 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. The V91 Max also has the ability to erase damaged hard drives and tapes, completely and permanently.Powerful enough to erase data hard drives, DLT, SDLT, 3480's, LTO4 and more, the V91 MAX is a compact, low noise, manually operated unit that sits neatly on a table top.Verity Systemswww.veritysystems.com
