The Model 0201OMD Optical Media Destroyer from Security Engineered Machinery (SEM) shreds CDs, DVDs, credit cards, ID badges, access cards, and similar items, reducing them to tiny 2.2 mm by 4 mm particles, satisfying the requirements of NSA/CSS 04-02. The Optical Media Destroyer can destroy up to 2,500 disks per hour — 60 percent more than competing units. Small enough for office use, it is 40.25 inches high, 21.5 inches wide, and 23.25 inches deep. The throat, specially designed to accept optical media, is 12.25 inches wide. Ergonomic photoelectric controls provide for hands-free start and stop; the cutters are activated by the introduction of discs and are automatically shut off seconds later when the material is destroyed. If the door of the machine is open or the bag inside is full, the cutting head will not operate and an indicator light will signal the problem. The large 30-gallon waste collection bin is constructed of anti-static material to prevent particles from clinging to it when emptying. The Model 0201 features the exclusive ESM - Energy Savings Mode which powers down the unit after prolonged periods of inactivity, and also the ECC - Electronic Capacity Control which provides a visual indication of infeed capacity being utilized, to help prevent overfeeding and paper jams.
