The VSSP LG degaussers (DataGauss LG, DataGauss XL-LG, DATAGONE LG, SDD-Master) and the Crunch 250 Destroyer can be used stand-alone or, if connected to a PC or laptop via USB cable, in conjunction with the Erasure Log Software. This software will log all the information related to the erasure and provide a printed report if required. The information logged includes details of:

- Processing company
- Degausser model and serial number
- Media owner
- Operator/Supervisor name
- Media information
- Date / time
- Degaussing information
Data Logging Function - erasure log software store print reports degausser data logging

Information is entered onto the software via keyboard or optional barcode scanner to speed up the data entry if required. When the logging program has been opened on the PC and the VSSP LG degausser is connected, the operator simply clicks on the "Find Machine" button for all the unit details to be automatically entered into the log including model, serial number and firmware version. The degausser display will show it is in remote mode controlled by the PC.

Further data regarding operator, customer and media is then entered via keyboard (or optional barcode scanner) before the Hard Drive or Tape is placed into the degausser and the lid closed. The erasure is commenced by clicking the "Destroy" button on the screen which activates the charging of the powerful degaussing magnetic field.

A window opens on the screen showing the progress of the degaussing cycle. When the display shows the degauss cycle is complete the lid can be opened and the media removed. Throughout the whole erase cycle the on-board processor monitors the erase procedure ensuring that it is completed correctly. The operator is immediately alerted to any interruptions in the cycle by messages on the screen. The lower portion of the screen now shows all the details of the erasure including Date, Time, Media Serial number, Capacitor Voltage, Magnetic Gauss Field and confirmation that the media was degaussed 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.
