Proton T-4 Hard Drive Degausser
The Proton T-4 produces a bi-directional field which provides a 20,000 Gauss positive field and a 20,000 Gauss Negative field. The T-4 achieves this by using a unique, patented “Reverse Polarity”. Other degaussers may have either a positive or negative pulse, but only one. The T-4 has both and it is fully automatic. This ensures complete and permanent erasure of your data and will protect your sensitive information for years to come. The T-4 now has a LCD screen and internal Gaussmeter for performance verification.

This new feature guarantees that your hard drive degausser is performing to NSA standards every time and eliminates the requirement of separate instruments to check field strength and/or re-certification programs.
Proton T-4 Degaussing Machine Benefits
- Approved to erase all magnetic media available today.
- Listed on the National Security Agency’s Evaluated Products List (NSA EPL-Degausser) and complies with DoD requirements for destroying classified information on magnetic media.
