Garner TS-1 overview

  • 1Description

The TS-1 NSA/CSS Listed Hard Drive Degausser from Garner is an NSA-approved degausser that can erase both perpendicular and longitudinal drives up to 5000 Oersteds. Additionally, it erases magnetic tape media up to 2800 Oersteds. The machine features an LCD that displays erasure status, field strength, a media counter, and diagnostics. For added security, the machine includes a built-in magnetic field verification system so you can be sure the data actually gets erased completely.

The machine features quiet operation so it won't interfere with your work. The TS-1 features a compact design and comes with retractable alloy handles so you can move it between rooms.

Basic Features

  • Listed on the National Security Agency's Evaluated Products List
  • Erases perpendicular and longitudinal hard drives up to 5,000 Oersteds and magnetic tape media up to 2,800 Oersteds
  • Alphanumeric LCD display provides easy to read erasure status, field strength, media counter and diagnostics
  • Single pass, 45 second erasure
  • Built-in magnetic field verification system guarantees complete erasure
  • Quiet, table-top, office friendly operation
The TS-1 is the newest and most innovative product in the Garner line of degaussers. With 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 up to 2,800 Oe high coercivity tape media, including all formats of LTO (1,2,3,4), SuperDLT I & II, DLT, AIT, 3590 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

Easy To Operate

The TS-1 is exceptionally user-friendly. Simply place your media into the drawer of the TS-1 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 or 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 to 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
  • NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) Guidelines for Media Sanitization
  • NIST SP 800-36
  • NIST SP 800-88
  • PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard)
  • HIPAA (Health Information Portability and Accountability Act)
  • PIPEDA (Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act)
  • GLBA (Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act)
  • California Senate Bill 1386
