Plugable Australia USB-C 4K Triple Display Docking Station
- One HDMI output via USB-C Alt Mode supporting displays up to 4K@30Hz
- Two DisplayPort++ 1.2 outputs supporting DisplayPort displays up 4K@60Hz
- One USB-C port on the backside of the docking station with Power Delivery functionality to charge your host computer (not all USB-C computers are able to charge through their USB-C port; see additional compatibility details below)
- One USB-C USB 3.0 port on the front of the docking station for USB-C peripheral connectivity
- Four USB 3.0 (Type-A) ports
- One Gigabit Ethernet port
- Headphone and microphone jacks (TRS)
Maximum resolution via Alt Mode output is 3840x2160@30Hz (4Kp30) as outlined in the HDMI 1.4 specification. 2560x1600, 1920x1080 (1080p) and lower resolutions will display at 60Hz.
The DisplayLink graphics supports dual monitors up to 4K@60Hz (3840×2160@60Hz) each and a single 5K@60Hz monitor when connected to displays that support the desired resolution. DisplayPort equipped monitors and the DisplayPort cable must support DisplayPort 1.2 specification in order to support 4K@60Hz. While backwards compatible with DisplayPort 1.1 standards, the resolution will be limited to 4K@30Hz if the display or cable does not support DisplayPort 1.2 specifications. Does not support gaming, DisplayPort MST daisy-chain connections, nor Dual-Link DVI conversions.
USB 3.1 Type-C Compatibility Overview
USB-C is a new standard with much versatility. As a result, compatibility information is complex. Some USB-C systems support Alt Mode video output, while others do not. Some can be powered and charged via USB-C PD, while others do not.
Information on specific system compatibility will be updated online as we test more systems internally, and we welcome compatibility reports from users as well.
Compatible Systems (Alt Mode, PD, & DisplayLink)
Some of the best examples of systems which currently support Alt Mode, PD, and DisplayLink are MacBook Pro Late 2016/2017 13/15", the 12" MacBook Retina with USB-C, the Dell XPS 13" 9350/9360, Dell XPS 15 9550/9560, Dell Precision 5510/5520, HP Spectre x360 13" ("Kaby Lake" version w/ Thunderbolt 3), Lenovo Yoga 720 13" & Yoga 920, Microsoft Surface Book 2.
Operating System & Platform Details (Windows)
- Windows users can download DisplayLink drivers from Plugable. Windows drivers can also be installed by Windows Update (with existing Internet connection)
Operating System & Platform Details (Mac)
- Please note that Mac currently only supports "Extended"/independant desktops; display "mirroring" is not supported. Performance on Mac systems compared to performance on Windows systems will be less on the 2nd and 3rd attached displays (DisplayPort++ ports).
Operating System & Platform Details (Chrome OS)
- Chromebooks/Chrome OS is currently unsupported, but we hope this changes as the Chromebook platform evolves
Partially Compatible Systems (Supporting Alt Mode, PD, and/or DisplayLink, but not all)
Many current USB-C systems which do support Alt Mode video output do not support charging via USB-C. Systems such as this will output video from the dock, but will still need their proprietary OEM chargers. The Dell XPS 15 9550/9560 and Precision 5510/7510, for example, will display a warning during boot if connected to a 60W power adapter rather than a Dell 130W power adapter. These systems may still charge, but at a slower rate.
Conversely, while some USB-C phones and tablets may accept charging via PD, most do not support Alt Mode video output.
Thunderbolt 3 USB-C ports generally support Alt Mode output and DisplayLink functionality, but support for Power Delivery/charging on these ports is system-specific.
The UD-ULTC4K relies upon new functionality introduced with USB 3.1 Type-C and as such is not compatible with USB 3.0/2.0 Type-A legacy systems.
Power and ChargingThe UD-ULTC4K power supply can charge host systems with up to 60 watts of power (20V, 3A) via the USB Power Delivery standard. As mentioned above, some devices which support video output over USB-C will not charge via USB-C. For these systems, the charger from your system manufacturer will be required.DisplayPort Adapters
