The Aurora AU2030XA 20-Sheet Crosscut-Cut Paper/CD/Credit Card Shredder will not operate if over capacity is detected to prevent paper jams. It stops immediately when the TouchGuard sensor is touched to prevent accidents and automatically powers-off after 5 minutes for energy savings and safety. Shredding resumes automatically by simply inserting paper without powering up. It can quietly shred up to 20 sheets of paper at once, as well as CDs/DVDs, credit cards, small paper clips and staples. There are LED status indicator lights for Power, Overheat, Overload, Door Open and Bin Full. Best of all, the 7-gallon pull-out basket collects the shredded material.
