Tableau OEM-style forensic bridges have long been a key component of today’s modern forensic workstations. The Tableau T35is Forensic SATA/IDE Bridge is an economical, high‑performance alternative for forensic professionals whose acquisition needs focus on SATA and IDE hard-drives.
The T35is mounts in one 5.25″ half-height drive bay at the front of a forensic workstation and connects to the host computer via one FireWire 800 and one SATA (optional) host connection. When both SATA and FireWire ports are connected to the host, the T35is provides intelligent, redundant data transfers. For maximum imaging speed, the T35is’ SATA host connection should be used. Firmware updates are performed over the FireWire host connection.
The T35is bundle price includes the T35is and one each of the following: TC2-8 (traditional style power cable), TC5-8 (SATA style power cable), TC3-8 (SATA signal cable), TC6-8 (IDE signal cable), TDA5-25 and TDA5-18 (2.5″ and 1.8″ IDE notebook hard disk adapters).
As with all Tableau write-blockers, the T35is automatically defeats HPA and detects DCO regions on IDE and SATA drives. Tableau firmware updates and the Tableau Disk Monitor software are included.
