DisplayPort and HDMI
Plugable's unique design allows users to connect up to two additional 4K displays with your port of choice using either HDMI or DisplayPort without the need of external adapters. This is the first Thunderbolt 3 docking station to offer this flexibility of display types. Made to adapt to the user's setup, the TBT3-UDZ is unparalleled in flexibility.
Vertical and Horizontal
The horizontal or vertical design of the TBT3-UDZ goes against the grain of other docking stations. Fit the dock in any space standing up or lying flat so there's more room for monitors and peripherals, while keeping a productive and clean workspace. The dock includes a sturdy, detachable base for vertical orientation, which ensures a stable, sturdy setup no matter how many cables you connect.
Thunderbolt 3 and USB-C
The TBT3-UDZ is built upon the latest Intel Titan Ridge chipset, enabling the widest compatibility with Thunderbolt 3 and USB-C laptops on the market. Thunderbolt 4 laptops are also supported. Its dual connectivity removes frustrations from having to pick a docking station for either type of laptop while delivering unrivaled performance.
The TBT3-UDZ's 100W* Power Delivery is the highest charging wattage to be implemented in any universal Thunderbolt 3 docking station. With Apple now releasing notebooks with 96W chargers, such as the new 16" MacBook Pro, the TBT3-UDZ is the best docking station to pair with these devices for unrivaled performance.
Charge your laptop at noticeably faster speeds
- so you'll have one less thing to think about and you can say goodbye to your other power supply.
*To strictly comply with 100W regulatory limits with margin, Thunderbolt certification limits to charging to 96W.
Dual 4K Displays
Expand your workspace with 40Gbps Thunderbolt speeds and drive any combination of two DisplayPort or HDMI monitors.
When connected to a compatible Thunderbolt 3 or 4 Windows or Mac* system:
- Drive up to two 4096x2160 @ 60Hz displays (lower resolutions also supported)
- *Apple M1 systems (non-Intel CPUs) only support a single external display. Not DisplayLink compatible
- Windows: Drive two 1920x1080 @ 60Hz displays or drive one 4096x2160 @ 30Hz display
- 12" MacBook Retina: Drive up to two 4096 x 2160 @ 30Hz mirrored displays
The docking station features 14 ports making it one of the most comprehensive docking stations available, ideal for the most demanding of professions that require multiple inputs and peripherals. With a mix of five USB 3.0 (5Gbps), one USB-A (10Gbps) and one USB-C (10Gbps) ports, you'll be able to connect your phone or USB flash drive to the easily accessible front USB and USB-C ports, then connect other USB peripherals such as a keyboard or mouse to the back of the dock. Note: The USB-C port on the front of the dock supports data transfer only (no video). When connected to a USB-C laptop the front USB-C and USB-A port may be limited to 5Gbps depending on host specifications.
