The HD-2 is the newest and most innovative product in the Garner line of degaussers. The HD-2 erases hard drives (laptop, desktop and network up to 1.5" high) and high coercivity tape media, including all formats of LTO (1,2,3,4), SuperDLT I & II, DLT, AIT, 8mm and more, all without any adapters. Features include a continuous duty rating (no cooling necessary) quiet operation and a 60 second cycle time.

HD-2 Operations:

The HD-2 is exceptionally user-friendly. Simply place your media into the drawer on the right side of the HD-2 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-2 has been independently tested and certified to meet both ANSI and CE standards. Built-in safegaurds 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-2 to the operator.


Degauss vs. Overwrite:

The HD-2 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-2 does not rely on software, the HD-2 will also completely and permanently erase failed and damaged hard drives regardless of the operating system or interface.


Government Mandates:

The HD-2 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
