With power delivery, MST, dual video (DV), or 4K Ultra HD support, this innovative docking station caters to a range of users, such as IT administrators, designers and animators.
Connect just one adapter to power the dock and your laptop
USB-C is here. It?s the future of universal connectivity, and many new laptops and tablets already feature USB Type-C ports. This versatile laptop dock capitalizes on the full potential of USB Type-C, which simultaneously transfers power, video, and data.
This docking station supports USB Power Delivery (up to a maximum of 60 watts), so you can power and charge your laptop directly through its USB-C port. Because a single power adapter can be used for your dock and laptop, you can reduce clutter at your workstation. Plus, you don?t need to carry or remember an extra power adapter when you?re traveling to or from the office.
Typical USB Type-A docks restrict video and data to 5Gbps shared bandwidth. This USB Type-C dock allocates data and video traffic separately, so extra bandwidth can be diverted to a particular video or data function, as needed. The USB-C laptop dock offers optimal performance when using multiple monitors and peripherals, so you can get more work done in less time.
Enjoy dual-monitor video output
This versatile dock lets you easily connect dual monitors. With more monitors, you can multitask and increase productivity, by eliminating the hassle of flipping between several open windows.
For dual video, simply connect your 1920 x 1200p DisplayPort and HDMI monitors.

Easily connect a 4K display through USB-C
The USB-C laptop dock features a DisplayPort and an HDMI port, giving you the flexibility to connect your displays as needed. It supports dual monitors or a single high-resolution 4K monitor.
For extra screen space, this dock offers support for the higher 4096 x 2160p resolution, unlike traditional 4K docking stations that only support 3840 x 2160p.
For 4K output, you can connect:
- A 4K HDMI display at 4096 x 2160p resolution and 24Hz
- A 4K DisplayPort display at 3840 x 2160p resolution and 30Hz
Everything you need to create a full-sized workstation
This full-featured universal docking station offers the ports you need to create a full-sized workstation, including four USB 3.0 ports (including a fast charge-and-sync port and a USB-C port), plus Gigabit Ethernet, audio, and microphone connections.
Unlike some proprietary docking stations designed only to work with specific laptop models, this universal laptop dock works with multiple brands. All you need is a laptop?s USB-C port that supports DP alt mode and USB Power Delivery, and you can be up and running quickly. With universal support, you can use this dock with different laptops now, or in the future.
