The HotPlug™ Field Kit offers investigators a powerful tool to transport a live computer without shutting it down. HotPlug is trusted by government, military, and law enforcement.
- Computer seizure while computer is running
- IT and forensic uses
With the CRU® WiebeTech® HotPlug™ you can transport a computer without shutting it down.
The HotPlug allows hot seizure and removal of computers from the field to anywhere else. The HotPlug’s patented technology keeps power flowing to the computer while transferring the computer’s power input from one A/C source (such as a wall outlet or power strip) to another (a portable UPS) and back again.
We created this product for our Government/Forensic customers, but it has IT uses as well. Need to move a server without powering it down? The HotPlug can do it.
It’s great for digital forensic investigators and techs who can’t risk losing access to data on a running computer. With many computers now employing full-disk encryption, shutting them down poses the risk of having to crack a password after moving the computer to a lab for analysis, which can greatly increase the time and expense of an investigation. When combined with a WiebeTech Mouse Jiggler™, you also won’t have to worry about the computer entering password-protected screensaver or sleep modes.
Whether you’re a forensic investigator, technician, or IT manager, the CRU WiebeTech HotPlug is an essential part of your toolkit. Find a reseller near you or buy online.
