Aleratec Introduces Automatic Shredder with Enhanced Security and 240-Sheet Capacity

Aleratec introduces an automatic shredder that can shred up to 240 sheets of paper at a time without user intervention. With three times the capacity of the original RoboShredder the RoboShredder Plus makes it easier than ever to safely shred large quantities of confidential documents and data.

Chatsworth, CA - January 09, 2013 – Aleratec today introduced the RoboShredder Plus™ Auto Feed Paper Shredder, an automatic shredder which destroys up to 240 sheets of paper without user intervention. The RoboShredder Plus features an auto feed tray which has three times the capacity of the original RoboShredder. This tray also locks so documents left in the shredder’s auto feed tray are secure until they are completely destroyed. Users can load it and leave it, making it easier than ever to complete large shredding jobs worry-free.

The RoboShredder Plus will cross cut paper and credit cards to a shred size of just 3 x 9 millimeters. This shred size meets Level P-4 Based on DIN (Deutches Institut für Normung) Standard 66399 for paper shredding and is perfect for safely destroying confidential documents and data. The RoboShredder Plus will also strip cut Blu-ray, DVD or CD discs into three strips, rendering any data on the disc unreadable.

"Our discriminating Prosumer customers demand tools that provide convenience and uncompromising information security," says Perry Solomon, Aleratec’s President and CEO. "The locking auto feed system on the RoboShredder Plus makes it possible to shred large amounts of paper hands-free and without worry."

The RoboShredder Plus has several additional features that ensure ease-of-use:
  • The slide-out basket has a capacity of 10.8 gallons or 41 liters, an increase of more than 70 percent over the previous generation.
  • An LED indicator on the control panel signals when the basket has reached its capacity.
  • For smaller paper-shredding jobs, paper can be fed through the manual feed slots up to 10 sheets at time.
  • To protect against jamming, the RoboShredder features auto reverse and manual reverse functions.
  • Overload Protection Technology prevents damage due to overloading or overheating. LED indicators on the control panel will light if either of these situations occurs, and the automatic protection circuit may cut power to the shredder or to the motor.

Despite its many features and powerful shredding capability, the RoboShredder Plus is one of the quietest shredders on the market. The RoboShredder has a noise level of just 60 decibels, about the same level as normal conversation.

The Aleratec RoboShredder Plus Auto Feed Paper Shredder (Part 240204) is available for shipment now with the Estimated Retail Price (ERP) of $629 from Aleratec's dedicated resellers and distribution partners.
