LM-1/DX-8 degauss and destroy system

Seamless and fully automated, meet the powerful LM-1 and DX-8 degauss and destroy system. Designed for organizations with large quantities of media and limited manpower, the fast cycle time of the LM-1 and DX-8 Duo adds ease and efficiency to your media sanitization needs. 

Operation of the system is simple. Turn on the master switch to power the system. Drop one piece of media into each tray on the feeding conveyor belt of the LM-1. The media is pulled inside the degausser where permanent magnets completely erase the media. The degaussed media exits the LM-1 and drops inside the DX-8 destruction device where the powerful crushing action of the DX-8 destroys the media. The damaged media is transported by conveyor belt directly to your waste bin, ready for recycling or disposal. No handling needed.

Features

  • Seamlessly automate the process of degaussing and destroying hard disk drives.
  • Degauss and destroy 1,300 HDDs per hour with the speed of a conveyor belt.
  • Meets NSA and DoD compliance guidelines for the physical damage of media.
  • With two different space-saving configurations, the system offers flexibility with a compact footprint.

LM-1/DX-8 Performance

DEGAUSS, THEN DESTROY
NSA specifications for the erasure of sensitive information on hard disk drives declares:

“The hard drive must be sanitized using an NSA/CSS evaluated degausser listed in the NSA/CSS Evaluated Products List- Degausser. It is also highly recommended that the hard disk drive be physically damaged prior to release.”

-NSA/CSS Storage Device Declassification Manual 9-12

For complete compliance with NSA specifications, pair Data Security, Inc.’s NSA approved LM-1 Degausser with the DX-8 Destruction Device for fast, automatic and uninterrupted service.
