MDS-5 Degausser

The MDS-5 Professional Degausser is designed for today's wide variety of media formats and features simple operation and quality erasure - at an affordable price. The MDS-5 uses Garner's proven electro-magnetic coil system specially designed for quiet, reliable operation.

Erasing your tapes or reels is easy and it only takes a few seconds. You simply place your media in the "Erase Zone", rotate your media 3 full revolutions, flip the media over, rotate another 3 full revolutions and your done.
