Main Features : 


Leaks of confidential information are one of the biggest risks corporations face when scrapping PCs or returning them to a leasing company. KOBRA DEGAUSSER incorporates the latest technology and is the world’s most compact, lightweight and efficient instant degausser in its category. It utilizes maximum power to meet the needs of ordinary corporations and government institutions for erasing confidential information. Its portability and efficiency are also a boon to businesses providing data-erasure services. KOBRA DEGAUSSER completely erases digital data on all functional or non-functional magnetic media including PMR/LMR hard disk drive and reel/cartridge tapes regardless of data capacity or interface type. The equipment works by saturating the media’s magnetic field, thus eliminating all data. Such data cannot be recovered. Servo tracks are also erased so media that use servo tracks (e.g. HDD) cannot be re-used. Since software is not used to erase the data, the system is not dependent on OS. KOBRA DEGAUSSER produces an approx. 20000 gauss field in a patented erasure zone design. This enables characteristics and performance that are at the top level for NSA listed degaussers.

■ Safety: Kobra Degausser have been tested to validate safe operation with low-level field leakage

■ Portable: relatively small and light. Easily transported to various locations for on-site media erasure

■ Simple operation: only need to insert the target in the chamber, push the “Erase” button and remove the target

■ LCD Display: a front-panel LCD displays shows total number of erasures and the magnetic flux density used for the data erasure

■ Malfunction alarm: if the magnetic flux density drops below a specified value, an alarm LED light

■ Operating indicator: a flashing light at the chamber door edge confirms that a magnetic field is generated

■ Cooling function: a cooling fan operates as required during the operation

■ Door lock: the chamber door locks on closure to prevent operator hand insertion, or target ejection

■ Government standards: meets PCI DSS, data security standard, NIST guidelines, NIST SP 800-36, NIST SP 800-88, HIPAA, PIPEDA, GLBA (Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act), and California Senate Bill 1386 standards



KOBRA DEGAUSSER with its 20000 gauss field totally erases magnetic data in accord with

NSA/DoD requirements for the current top coercivity targets of 5000 Oe 3.5” and 2.5” HDD

and 3000 Oe tapes, with sufficient power available for future media coercivity growth. The

testing also shows safe levels of external field. Thus, the KOBRA DEGAUSSER meets all US

government mandate requirements. KOBRA DEGAUSSER, that uses magnetic pulse generation,

has passed the strict qualification inspection of the National Security Agency (NSA)/Central

Security Service (CSS) and has been approved for inclusion on the list of NSA-evaluated products.



As an NSA Approved degausser, KOBRA DEGAUSSER has been tested to and exceeded the most

stringent requirements for complete erasure of magnetic media at the highest security levels

including Top Secret. This approval meets all compliance standards for government mandates

requiring complete elimation of information stored on magnetic media prior to re-use of disposal.



Erasure zone capacity is one 3.5" HDD or eight 2.5"

HDD. This plus a 15 second cycle time, continuous

duty result in a high throughput of 240 3.5" HDD or

1920 2.3" HDD/hr.
