The Garner TS-1 NSA/CSS Evaluated High Security Degausser, utilizes Garner's proven solid state technology to provide a 20,000 gauss erasing field ensuring complete erasure of classified and "Top Secret" data in 45 seconds.

Garner's built-in magnetic field verification system along with onboard diagnostics, confirm the field strength of each and every erase cycle, guaranteeing complete erasure every time. Further, the field strength is displayed numerically and graphically, allowing the operator to perform periodic performance verification, eliminating the need for a separate instrument to check the erasing force. Redundant error checking before, during and after each erase cycle ensure the TS-1 is performing in peak condition. 

With its 2 Tesla (20,000 gauss) of power, the TS-1 erases the highest coercivity magnetic media available today. The TS-1 erases 5,000 Oe hard drives (laptop, desktop and network up to 1" high) and high coercivity tape media up to 2,800 Oe, including all formats of LTO (1,2,3,4), SuperDLT I & II, DLT, AIT, 2590 Series. 8mm and more, all without any adapters. With a continuous duty rating (no cooling breaks necessary), quiet operation and a 45 second cycle time, the TS-1 offers a fast, cost effective erasing solution for Top Secret data erasure. 


Simply place your media into the drawer and push the ERASE button. Within 45 seconds the media is erased. Open the drawer and remove the media.


Safeguards built into the TS-1 check the stored power before each erase cycle, ensuring complete erasure every time. In addition, a proprietary gauss sensor measures the erasing force in the coil at the time of discharge. If the electrical power of the erasing force is less than specification the TS-1 will report an error message to the operator and not complete the cycle until the TS-1 meets both power and erasing force requirements. Messages on the LCD Display and lighted push buttons report the status of the TS-1 to the operator. 

Government Mandates:

As an NSA approved degausser, the TS-1 has been tested 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 elimination of information stored on magnetic media prior to re-use or disposal including:

NSA/CSS/DoD Top Secret
PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry) Data Security Standard
NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) Guidelines for Media Sanitization
NIST SP 800-36
NIST SP 800-88
HIPAA (Health Information Portability and Accountability Act)
PIPEDA (Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act)
GLBA (Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act)
California Senate Bill 1386

The SCAN-1 Option lets you scan and record media serial numbers, erasure status, and other important information to create detailed audit worthy media destruction reports. 

TS-1 Shipping & Deployment Case (CASE-TS-1)

The optional CASE-TS-1 option allows the TS-1 to be deployed to remote locations. Quick release caster wheels are included and can easily be removed for pallet shipping. Made of durable, impact resistant composite reinforced plywood, aluminum alloy and steel with heavy duty locking latch system.
