bulk eraser

Definition

Electronics

  • A device which utilizes a strong magnetic field to erase all information from a recordable magnetic medium, such as a reel of magnetic tape or a floppy disk. In the case of a reel of magnetic tape, for instance, the use of such a device avoids the need for having to run the entire tape past the erase head. Also called degausser (2), or demagnetizer (2).
