In April 2006, an internal R&D project funded by the company demonstrated the first full-scale HTS-based degaussing coil.
A few weeks later, while one of my recently dumped friends was unconvincingly extolling the virtues of the single life through quivering lips and between nose blows into a well-worn tissue, I thought about degaussing again.
Conventional copper-cable degaussing systems are effective, but they are also heavy, bulky and power-hungry.
Disk degaussing is the process of exposing the disk to strong magnetic fields to destroy its contents.
Although I do not see how magnetic degaussing could possibly affect the sound of a CD, and although I am of the opinion that we have here a classic case of the placebo effect, and although I'd love to see how you would do on a double-blind -- or even single-blind -- comparison of treated vs.
The FM-1561A is equipped with a full range of manual tuning options, including variable overscan, pincushion adjustment, and pushbutton degaussing for video, and an audio volume control.
Applications for Amperium wire include AC and DC power transmission and distribution cables, ship propulsion motors and generators, wind turbine generators such as American Superconductor's SeaTitan[TM], degaussing systems for naval vessels, electromagnets, maglev trains, fault current limiters and FaultBlocker[TM] surge-suppressing power cable systems.
There is a First World War rangefinder pillar on the east side of the island and the present bird hide on the east side of the lighthouse was built as a degaussing station, used to demagnetise ships and protect them from mines.

The company's HTS wire and magnet cable technology have been applied to a degaussing coil system that was installed aboard the USS Higgins, a DDG-51 destroyer, for a two-year trial at sea.
