HD-2X Degausser

Economical Series test

The compact, economical HD-2X (10,000+ gauss) automatic degausser is for those who need to permanently erase data from hard drives and tapes, but don’t need a high volume degausser. Easy to use, simply place the media in the drawer. Closing the drawer automatically starts the degauss cycle. For every cycle, redundant internal diagnostics and erasure field verification ensure no data is left behind.

Documenting Data Erasure

Add the SCAN-1 erasure verification software and barcode scanner package. Using your own computer, the SCAN-1 compiles a log of the serial number, date, time and erasure status of each degaussed hard drive & tape into an audit-worthy report.

Add Garner's exclusive IRONCLAD Erasure Verification System with JPG Image Capture for IRONCLAD proof-of-erasure & destruction. Only Garner offers complete hard drive erasure with JPG images of degaussed hard drives, providing the best audit trail and proof-of-erasure reports available.


  • Meets government and industry standards requiring complete erasure of sensitive information stored on magnetic media prior to re-use (tape only) or disposal

Easy to Use

  • Simply place the media into the drawer
  • Closing the drawer automatically starts the degaussing
  • LCD display tells you the field strength during the cycle and when erasure is complete
  • Diagnostics information is provided in easy-to-understand words, rather than codes

Office & Data Center Compatible

  • Quiet operation for office use
  • Small footprint, fits on a desktop
  • Plugs into standard wall outlets worldwide
  • Lightweight (34 lbs.)

Complete Erasure

  • Generates an evenly distributed 10,000+ Gauss (1 Tesla) magnetic field
  • Erases the highest-coercivity magnetic hard drives and tapes that fit into the HD-2X's drawer
  • Erases working and non-working hard drives


  • Up to 480 (1.8 in.) drives per hour
  • Up to 360 (2.5 in.) drives per hour
  • Up to 60 (3.5 in.) drives per hour
  • Less than one minute erasure cycle
  • Requires no cool down between cycles             


  • Take the degausser to the media with our wheeled transport cases

IRONCLAD Proof-of-Erasure & Destruction

Exportable erasure & destruction report

Create the Ultimate Audit Trail with the HD-2X IRONCLAD Erasure Verification System

Create the ultimate audit trail with the HD-2X IRONCLAD Erasure Verification System with JPG Image Capture. Garner’s exclusive IRONCLAD system acts as a digital witness verifying erasure, capturing JPG images of the erased media, and generating an IRONCLAD proof-of-erasure & destruction report.


  • IRONCLAD Touch Screen – The brain of the IRONCLAD system. Provides a touch screen interface that stores user ID, witness ID, incident number, date, image, data erasure and destruction information in a password protect system.
  • IRONCLAD Image Capture Module – Provides absolute proof that each hard drive was degaussed by capturing a JPG image of the top of the hard drive immediately after degaussing.  These high-resolution images identify bar-codes and unique markings that can be used later during an audit.  The information is stored in the IRONCLAD Control Head.
  • IRONCLAD Scanner – Scans the hard drive serial number or company asset number into the IRONCLAD Control Head.
  • IRONCLAD Destruction Module – Allows the PD-5 physical destroyer to be integrated into the IRONCLAD Control Head allowing destruction information from the PD-5 hard drive destroyer to be combined with the hard drive erasure record.
  • IRONCLAD Export Tool – Allows authorized users to export JPG images and all details of the erasure & destruction status for report or archival purposes.  Both Ethernet and USB transfer is available.
