In the lab, or in the field, the NEW Tableau Forensic Imager (TX1) acquires more data, faster, from more media types, without ever sacrificing ease-of-use or portability.

Successor to the Tableau TD3 and redesigned from the circuit board up, the TX1 is built on a custom Linux kernel, making it lean and powerful. Every component is hand-selected and tested to guarantee reliability and performance when conducting forensic imaging operations.

  • Intuitive touch interface
  • Ability to que jobs
  • Processes 2 forensic jobs at a time
  • Can connect multiple sources
  • Connect 5 destination drives and multiple network shares
  • Whole disk encryption

Extending Functionality

The TX1 has the ports available to connect a range of media for imaging. The following additional items may be required to complete the unit’s functionality:

Tableau IDE Adaptor [TDA7-5]
The TX1 does not include the IDE port. This Tableau IDE Adaptor [TDA7-5] connects to the PCIe port on the TX1 to allow imaging of IDE based storage. A kit version is available for the TDA7-5 and includes the Tableau IDE Cable – 2” [TC6-2] and Tableau Molex to 3M Drive Power Cable – 8″ [TC2-8-R2] required to attach IDE hard disks.

  • Adapts IDE to PCIe so that IDE drives connect through the TX1’s PCIe port
  • TX1 will recognize drives connected through this adapter as IDE in logs

Tableau PCIe Adapter Kit Bundle [TKDA-PCIE-5PC]
While the TX1 includes a port allowing the imaging of PCIe devices, PCIe adapters are required to connect the devices to the unit. This kit replaces the old TKDA7-3PC-BNDL, and includes all of the following adapters:

Tableau SATA & IDE Adapter Bundle Kit [TKDA-SATA-IDE-7PC]
The Tableau SATA & IDE Adapter Bundle Kit [TKDA-SATA-IDE-7PC] (replacement for the older TDA.MULTIPACK) facilitates imaging storage devices that have connection types that are encountered less frequently and includes the following items:

Tableau FireWire 800 9-pin to 9-pin Cable – 6′ [TC7-9-9]
A Firewire 800 cable.

Tableau FireWire 6-Pin to 9-Pin Cable Adapter [TC7-6-9]
An adapter for Firewire 400 to Firewire 800.

Tableau USB 3.0 A to B Cable – 6′ [TC-USB3]
A USB 3.0 Type-A to Type-B 18” cable.
