T6u SAS Forensic Bridge


Using industry leading forensic imaging software the T6u transfers data up to 200 MB/second (dd/RAW output data format while simultaneously calculating MD5 and SHA-1 hashes). Imaging larger SAS drives commonly found in servers or workstations is fast and easy with the T6u. One use of the Tableau T6u Forensic SAS Bridge will convince you to make it a key product in your forensic imaging toolkit.

SAS Read/Write Functionality
The T6u is the first Tableau SAS product to include a read/write mode. This allows users to switch the T6u into read/write mode to wipe, format or modify SAS drives, without requiring an expensive SAS controller card.
Updated User Interface

The Tableau T6u presents useful bridge and SAS device information through its integrated, backlit LCD. This display also allows users to select and access multiple logical unit numbers (LUNs) on storage devices.
