The Tableau T35689iu is the latest integrated OEM forensic bridge from Tableau. This product supports write-blocked acquisitions of up to eight different types of storage media: IDE, SATA, SAS, USB 3.0/2.0/1.1, FireWire 400/800. No other hardware write-blocker available today can match the forensic imaging capabilities of the T35689iu.
The Tableau T35689iu mounts in one 5.25" half-height drive bay at the front of a forensic workstation and connects to the host computer via one USB 3.0 (required) and one FireWire 800 (optional) host computer connections. When both USB3 and FireWire host connections are present the T35689iu uses Tableau's proprietary TABSense™ technology for optimum performance.
As with all other Tableau products, firmware updates are easy to apply using the Tableau Firmware Update utility, which has been rewritten to support product firmware updates via USB. The Tableau T35689iu incorporates the exclusive Tableau "U" update button for secure management of product firmware updates.
Each Tableau T35689iu ships with a complete set of hard-drive power and signal cables (TC2-8-R2, T4-8-R2, TC6-8, TC-USB3, and TC7-9-9). For integration into forensic workstations, USB3 and FireWire cables in various lengths are available for optional purchase.
