USB-C Docking Station Turns Your Device’s USB-C or Thunderbolt 3 Port into a Multiport Workstation
This multiport USB-C dock expands the potential of your Windows or Apple laptop or other device with a USB-C or Thunderbolt 3 port. It’s ideal for transmitting digital audio and video to a large display, adding a thumb drive or other USB peripheral, powering and charging a PD Charging-compliant mobile device, connecting to a Gigabit Ethernet network and a lot more—all at the same time.
Please note: The U442-DOCK1 is incompatible while using 2019 Apple MacBook OS Big Sur 11.X.X.
Supports USB-C DisplayPort Alternate Mode for Converting Audio/Video Signals
By connecting the built-in USB-C cable to a source device that supports USB DisplayPort Alt Mode, you can output 4K video and digital audio to a monitor, television or projector without installing special software drivers.
Transmits Crystal-Clear 4K Video and Digital Audio
The Mini DisplayPort (mDP) and HDMI outputs support Ultra HD video resolutions up to 3840 x 2160 (4K x 2K) at 30 Hz. The VGA output supports HD resolutions up to 1920 x 1200, including 1080p, at 60 Hz. A DisplayPort or DVI display may also be connected using an mDP to DP or HDMI to DVI adapter (adapters sold separately).
Connects Up to 2 Displays at the Same Time
Connecting two external monitors simultaneously allows you to display the same image on both monitors, extend your host desktop across both with different windows open on each, or combine both into one large display as a video wall. Connect dual monitors in Extended (4K @ 30 Hz mDP with 1080p HDMI or 720p VGA) and Mirror (1080p mDP with 1080p HDMI or 1080p VGA) modes. HDMI and VGA video ports will not work simultaneously.
Connects USB Peripherals
The USB-A hub ports accept up to three USB peripherals, such as flash drives, mice, keyboards and printers. They support fast USB 3.2 Gen 1 data transfer rates up to 5 Gbps and are backward compatible with USB 2.0 and USB 1.1 devices. The total charging output of the three ports is 10 Watts, with one port supporting 5V/1.5A (7.5W) fast charging. The other two ports share 5W max. Note: Host must support USB OTG (On-the-Go).
PD 3.0 Fast Role Swap Charging Port Charges Connected Device via AC Wall Charger
The USB-C Power Delivery port supports power output up to 20V 5A (100W), which is sufficient for charging and powering the connected source device, such as an Android smartphone or Chromebook. Just connect the device’s AC wall charger to the USB-C PD port. Note: USB-C PD port does not support Quick Charge (QC).
Accesses a Wired Gigabit Ethernet Network
The RJ45 port offers access to a Gigabit Ethernet network when no Wi-Fi is available or when a wired connection offers faster speeds. Connect using a UTP cable (sold separately), and enjoy true 10/100/1000 Mbps Ethernet speeds for fast data transfers.
Connects Audio Equipment
The USB-C dock’s 3.5 mm mini stereo jack is convenient for connecting speakers, headphones or a microphone to your workstation. You can listen to music or record the latest episode of your podcast.
Allows External Memory Access
The memory card slots support Micro SD and SD/MMC cards for transferring data to and from your connected computer, laptop or tablet.
Built-In USB-C Cable Connects in Either Direction
Unlike traditional USB cables that connect in only one direction, the reversible USB-C male connector plugs into a USB-C or Thunderbolt 3 port in either direction for an instant connection every time.
Ready to Use Right Out of the Package
The plug-and-play USB-C dock for Windows laptops, Chromebooks and other devices requires no software or external power. Drivers will install automatically the first time the dock is connected (Note: the host computer must have administrative rights or the drivers may fail to install correctly). The compact unit fits easily into a pocket, briefcase or laptop bag for connecting on the go.
