INTRODUCTION TO THE V880 MEDIAGAUSSER
The Verity V880 Mediagausser is designed for intermittent duty, single pass erasure of magnetic
storage media. The conveyor belt transport permits a throughput of up to 1000 BETA SP cassettes per
hour.
During the design stage of the V880 particular consideration was given to user efficiency; to maximise
the media throughput in the minimum time with the minimum of fuss. It is these criteria which has led
to several unique features incorporated in the V880.
The V880 utilises two U shaped degaussing coils mounted in a V formation which, extensive research
has proven, gives optimum and consistent erasure of circular storage media with a single pass.
Additional features include temperature sensors to monitor and control the maximum operating
temperature of the degaussing coils, plus forced air cooling of the degauss coils to maximise the run
time.
In the unlikely event of a fault occurring, over current protection is achieved using a combined power
on/off switched circuit breaker. Last, but not least, the V880 is of rugged mechanical construction using
high quality material throughout to ensure years of reliable use.

INSTALLATION
3.1.
Unpacking
Unpack the degausser carefully and inspect it for signs of physical damage. If damage is apparent, a
claim should be filed with the carrier.
3.2.
Power Wiring
Power connection is made to the V880 via the heavy duty flying cable at the rear of the unit. The
power circuit to the degausser should be rated in accordance with the national and local electric codes.
The V880 operates from specific supplies, in the case of the 50Hz unit it is between 220 and 240v. The
60 Hz unit is preset for one of two supplies ie, 208v or 220v, The setting may be changed after having
removed the rear cover. Check for compatibility.
Caution
A good electrical ground must be connected to the degausser.
The unit must be connected to the correct power supply. Failure to do so may result in
permanent damage.

Note
Degausser Current Consumption
The degaussing coils are powered as part of a tuned resonant circuit. This allows quite high
circulating currents to be generated within the degaussing coils, with minimal current consumption
from the mains voltage supply. However, this technique requires that the waveform of the supply
voltage contains minimal harmonic distortion. A distorted waveform will result in an increase in
current consumption. In extreme cases excessive current will trip the circuit breaker, making it
necessary to use a mains filter to remove the distortion and reduce the current consumption.
The typical current consumption figures provided in this manual are when powered from a supply
with minimal distortion. Any increase in current consumption due to a distorted waveform will
have minimal effect on the degausser performance, however, excessive current consumption
should be avoided for obvious reasons. In the event of unexplained high currents, please consult
your supplier.

OPERATION
The V880 mediagausser has been carefully engineered for convenience and simplicity of operation.
The unit has a number of unique features which are outlined below.
The V880 uses forced air cooling and to ensure correct operation care should be taken to avoid
restricting the air flow through the unit.
4.1.
Power Switch
The power switch is of the rocker type and includes the over current circuit breaker function.
only control provided.
It is the
When the power switch is activated the conveyor belt drive and degaussing coils will be energised.
4.2.
Product Erasure
The media to be erased is fed onto the degausser at the left end and exits at the right end.
Cassettes
VHS, Betacam and Betamax should be placed on the conveyor window down. (See Note 2)
BETA SP and S.VHS should be erased twice, once window side down and the second time window side
up for optimum results.
Cartridges
DC series should be placed on the conveyor window side down and 3480 series placed drive side down.
TK50 and TK70 cartridges must be placed on the conveyor belt with the tape access door hinge point
trailing (see diagram on next page). Failure to do so may result in permanent damage to the
degausser or cartridge.
Notes
1)
Do not unplug the degausser when power is 'on'.
2)
Due to variations in energy levels of professional tapes, it may be found desirable to
subject some types to a second pass with tape window up.

DVC Pro cartridges must be passed through the degausser a second time having turned the cartridge
over.

INDICATORS/FEATURES
5.1.
Forced Air Cooling
The V880 contains three axial fans which maximise the operation time of the degauss coils. The fans
are thermostatically controlled and will continue to run after the degausser is switched off. The fans
will switch off after a short period when the degaussing coils have cooled.
Note
The extended fan run period may be increased substantially if the degausser is operated in a high
temperature environment.
5.2.
Overtemperature Sensors
Each of the degaussing coils is monitored for excessive operating temperatures and in such an event
the degausser will be automatically switched off until the coils have cooled sufficiently. The V880 is
specified for intermittent operation and the sensors will be activated in the event of excessive use. The
belt drive motor and coil will automatically re-energise after having cooled sufficiently if the power
switch is left 'ON'.
5.3.
Conveyor Belt Speed
The conveyor belt is driven by an a.c. asynchronous motor, chain and sprocket system. The speed of
the motor is fixed and no adjustment or maintenance is required.
5.4.
Over Current Protection
The power ON/OFF switch provides both switch and over current circuit breaker functions.

MAINTENANCE/SERVICING
6.1.
Cleaning
The degausser should be cleaned with a soft cloth moistened with a mild detergent solution. Abrasive
pads or solvents should be avoided as permanent damage to the surface may result.
6.2.
Servicing
The V880 degausser has been thoroughly checked for correct operation prior to leaving Verity Systems
and should provide years of trouble-free operation. The conveyor belt drive system utilises sealed
lubricated bearings and a brushless motor, both being normally maintenance free. In the event of
equipment failure consult your supplier.
Warning
This equipment generates high voltages which are potentially fatal. Servicing should be carried out by
qualified personnel only.
