The Forensic Duplicator 2U
This compact forensic duplicator is loaded with features and built to perform. The TD2u natively images USB 3.0, SATA, and IDE/PATA storage devices. Investigators can (optionally) image SAS drives by using the same TDP6 module used with TD1 and TD2 duplicators.
USB 3.0 convenience and speed is built into the TD2u. Acquisitions of USB 3.0, SATA, and IDE/PATA devices can be directed to either USB 3.0 or SATA output devices. No special adapters or additional costs for USB 3.0 support are required.
TD2u can be used to make one (1:1), two (1:2), or three (1:3) copies of evidence drives. Standard features include Disk-to-Disk (clone) and Disk-to-File (image) duplication, Format, Wipe, Hash (MD5 or SHA-1), HPA / DCO detection and removal, and Blank Disk Check. TD2u outputs to raw DD, .e01 (compressed), .ex01 (compressed), or .dmg formats. As with all Tableau forensic products, TD2u is firmware upgradeable through the Tableau Firmware Update (TFU) utility.
Forensic Imaging Support for USB 3.0, SATA, IDE, and SAS
Forensic examiners rely on TD2u to image SuperSpeed USB 3.0, SATA, IDE, and SAS storage
devices. Using the very latest in solid-state SATA drives, TD2u images in excess of 15 GB/minute (.e01, compressed with MD5 and SHA-1 hashing). Wiping speeds exceed 25 GB/min.
TD2u makes one (1:1), two (1:2), or three (1:3)
copies of evidence drives. Standard features
include Disk-to-Disk (clone), Disk-to-File (image), Format, Wipe, Hash (MD5 and SHA-1),
HPA/DCO detection and removal, and Blank
Disk Check. TD2u outputs to raw (dd), .e01 (compressed), .ex01 (compressed), and .dmg
(MAC) formats. Extensive log files are maintained
for viewing and saving.
Integrated Support for SuperSpeed USB 3.0 Devices
The convenience of USB 3.0 is built into TD2u. Write-blocked source and read-write destination
USB 3.0 connections are easily accessible on the front of TD2u. No need for special adapters. Simply connect your thumb drive or USB 3.0 enclosure and start imaging.
Color LCD User Interface Enhances the User Experience
TD2u's color LCD user interface provides crisp, easy-to-view operational and device status
information. The color display improves the user experience significantly. The TD2u's learning
curve is minimal. We've maintained the same easy to navigate menu structure as our prior
generation products. Easy to learn and operate.
TD2u Kit Includes the New Tableau TP5 Universal Power Supply
The TD2u kit ships with the new compact and lightweight TP5 universal power supply. TP5
includes a set of four power adapters used to connect and power all Tableau write blockers and
duplicators. Separate power supply models for each product line are a thing of the past. TP5
may also be purchased separately.
TD2u ships ready to use in protective foam sized to drop into a Pelican 1500 hard case.
