Product Description

Product Description:

The Proton T-4 is engineered to provide
robust degaussing features for hard drive media up to
5,000 Oe and tape media up to 2800 Oe. These are the
maximum media coercivities available today and the
maximum coercivity available for NSA test purposes.
The Proton T-4 actually produces 40,000 gauss uniform
fields (4 Tesla) and usual NSA requirements are three
times the flux versus media coercivity. If this general
requirement is extrapolated, the Proton T-4 with 4 Tesla
should reliably degauss media with a coercivity of 13,330
Oe. In simple terms, the Proton T-4 will not be outdated
soon and will degauss your magnetic media for many
years to come. No other degausser compares!
• T-4 complies with DoD requirements for destroying
classified information on magnetic media and is on the
NSA EPL (January 2010)
• Independent tests indicate an Effective Magnetic Field
(EMF) of 40,000 gauss and 13,330 Oersteds over 2.5
times the power of existing NSA test levels.
• Automatic On/Off operation, simply insert media into
chamber and push start button
• Lightweight enables table top or floor operation
• Manufactured in the USA in ISO 9001 certified facilities
• Destruction of confidential, sensitive and classified data
is in accordance with recognized standards and provides
compliance under FACTA, HIPAA, GLB, DPA, etc.
• Confidence that data on high density hard drives is
rendered unavailable and unusable.
• Minimal training and simplicity of use
• Fits easily into existing operations

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.




  • 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.
  • Internal software requires all parameters (capacitor voltage, switch, etc.) are present prior to the "Go" LED display. If any problem exists that will compromise degaussing, the "Go" LED will not display. This software guarantees that each degauss cycle delivers sufficient strength and consistent performance.
  • Patented "Reverse Polarity" Electro Magnetic Pulse (EMP) technology.
  • Fully automatic operation: no drawer to open and close, simply insert media into top slot and push start button.
  • Lightweight and portable design enables table top or floor operation.
  • CESG Approved (UK) and CE Approved (EU).
  • Manufactured in the USA in ISO 9001 certified facilities.


  • Permanent destruction of confidential and classified data.
  • Compliance with recognized standards and regulations, including FACTA, HIPAA, GLB, DPA, etc.
  • Sanitizes both Longitudinal and Perpendicular recorded media and is projected to reliably degauss future media with increased coercivities and higher Oersteds (Oe).
  • Stores energy from previous cycles to reduce subsequent cycle times and save energy.
  • Simple to use and fits easily into existing operations.
