For companies requiring the utmost security, the Crunch 250 provides a perfect accompaniment to our degaussers. It is also an ideal solution for companies who recycle used media storage devices.

Data Destruction Auditor

Find out more about Data Destruction Auditor here. With its enhanced features, the Crunch 250 is the most effective media and hard drive destroyer on the market.

The Crunch 250 destroys SATA, PATA, SCSI, Fiber Channel, Notebook/Laptop Hard Drives (3.5" and 2.5" all formats and types). Neat and compact the Crunch 250 can destroy media in just 9 seconds making it time efficient and office friendly. It is simple to operate and has inbuilt safety features. A handy LCD display shows progress of the destruction.

Simple Operation
In just three easy steps the destruction process is complete.

  • The operator opens the door and inserts the drive.
  • Closing the door energizes the unit and pressing the button starts the destruction process. Progress is shown on the LCD.
  • When the display shows the process is complete the door is opened and the destroyed drive can be removed.

At all times through the cycle the safety interlocks ensure operators cannot put fingers, clothing etc in the crushing area whilst the moving parts are energized.

Logging System
When destruction logging is required simply connect a PC or Laptop to the Crunch 250 via the USB and open the logging program. Click on the “Find Machine” button and all the unit details will be automatically entered into the log including model, serial number and firmware version. Further data regarding operator, customer and media is then entered via keyboard (or optional barcode scanner).

Once the destruction process is complete, the lower portion of the screen will show all the details of the destruction including date, time, Media Serial number, and confirmation that the media was destroyed successfully. If this data is highlighted and the print button pressed all the details on the screen along with all the data entered will be printed as a . report. As new media is erased the details will be added to the Media Processed Log in the lower half of the screen. By highlighting erase records, the logs of one or more can be printed as required.

There is a Supervisor Section in the software which is Password protected. This allows the Supervisor to decide which fields are required and which fields must be completed by the Operator. The log record is stored in the PC and can be archived at any time or exported as a .csv file.
