The Tableau Forensic PCIe Bridge (T7u) is the first-ever portable write-blocker that enables forensic acquisition of PCIe solid-state-drives when used with a Tableau PCIe Adapter.
Please note that the T7u does not come with any accessories (cables) or power supply when purchased as a stand-alone item, and therefore you will need your own power supply and cables to effectively use the device.
For this reason, the T7u is also available as a kit (TK7u), which includes the power supply to power the T7u, a USB 3.0 cable, a PCIe adapter cable, a black zippered nylon bag, and a quick reference guide.
We also offer the T7u, 6 other write-blocking devices, plus all related cables and accessories in our premium write-blocking kit for a more comprehensive option: EFS Premium Tableau Write Blocking Kit.
- Suitable for both the field and lab
- Imaging speeds up to 330 MB/second
- USB 3.0 host computer connection
- Integrated, backlit LCD presents useful bridge and PCIe device information
- Six LEDs provide status on power, host connection, PCIe media detection, write-block status, and activity
- Read/write mode capability via internal DIP switch
- Free Tableau firmware updates
Note: The Tableau Forensic PCIe Bridge must be used in combination with one of the Tableau PCIe Adapters: Tableau PCIe Card SSD Adapter, Tableau PCIe M.2 SSD Adapter, or Tableau PCIe Adapter for Apple SSD. All three Tableau PCIe adapters are available separately, or together as a kit which includes a PCIe cable and black storage bag: TKDA7-3PC-BNDL.
