HPM-4E Degausser

The large chamber of the HD-6600 degausser accommodates one full-height hard drive (5” by 5”) without disassembly, or multiple tapes and hard drives simultaneously for fast erasure (up to 514 hard drives per hour or 2,468 tapes per hour). Simply open the door, insert the media and press the start button. Controls are positioned at a comfortable, ergonomic height. Wheels on the base allow the degausser to be rolled into a closet for storage or down the hall to another office.


  • Oversized chamber erases wide variety of magnetic tape and hard disk drive sizes; including full-height hard drives without disassembly.
  • Unique internal brain notifies user of disruption in operation guaranteeing optimum performance and reliability.
  • Listed in the "NSA Evaluated Products List – Degausser."

HD-6600 Performance

With the largest chamber size available among degaussers listed in the NSA EPL-Degausser, the HD-6600 accepts the widest range of magnetic media formats, simultaneously in any combination, measuring up to a total size of 3.5” (89 mm) by 6” (152 mm) by 10” (254 mm). Combining multiple tapes and drives per cycle reduces the amount of time and labor resources associated with degaussing media.

Illuminated POWER switch, START push-button, NORMAL and FAULT indicators with audible malfunction alarm and locking chamber door. The backlit digital display indicates normal operations, self-calibration, comprehensive diagnostic services, and alerts operator when maintenance is required.

Independent scientific testing confirms this degausser erases hard disk drives (HDDs) with coercivity ratings up to 4200 Oersteds and magnetic tape media with a coercivity of 2800 Oersteds.
