Thunderbolt™ 4 Dock Adds Speed, Power, Video Options to Surface Devices
Designed to enhance the productivity of professionals using Thunderbolt™ based Surface devices running Windows, Kensington’s new Plug-and-Play SD5765T Thunderbolt™ 4 Dual 4K Docking Station is an affordable, high-speed dock that enables users to connect multiple 4K monitors and accessories without using adapters.
The SD5765T, which provides up to 96W of power delivery, features 40Gbps data transfer speeds, and supports a single 8K @ 60Hz via a Thunderbolt™ 4 port, or dual 4K @ 60Hz monitors via two HDMI® ports. The 13-in-1 design incorporates two HDMI® ports, one Thunderbolt™ 4 port, one Thunderbolt™ 4 host port, one USB-C® 3.2 Gen2 10Gbps port, two USB-A 3.2 Gen2 10Gbps ports, two USB-A 3.2 Gen1 5Gbps ports, one Gigabit Ethernet port, one audio combo jack, and two UHS-II 4.0 SD and Micro SD card readers. Zero-footprint mounting maximizes desktop space and reduces cable clutter by enabling the user to mount the docking station out of the way using a mounting bracket (K34050WW), sold separately.
Portable USB4® Dock for Surface Devices Maximizes Productivity while Reducing Travel Bulk
Built in collaboration with Microsoft, the innovative MD125U4 USB4® Portable Docking Station leverages the power of USB4® to maximize productivity when using the Surface device at the desk or on the go. Ideal for hybrid workers who want to travel with less weight and clutter, the compact dock provides up to 100W power pass-through, eliminating the need to travel with an additional power brick.
The MD125U4, which can be powered by a USB-C power adapter or by the Surface device battery, supports USB4®, Thunderbolt™ 3, Thunderbolt™ 4, and USB-C 3.2 devices. The dock supports a single monitor up to 8K @ 30Hz or dual monitors up to 4K @ 120Hz through two HDMI® 2.1 ports. One USB-C 3.2 Gen2 port, two USB-a 3.2 Gen2 ports, and one 2.5Gbps Ethernet port enable the connection of a variety of accessories without the need for additional adapters.
Driverless Dock Enables Users of USB-C Enabled Surface Devices to Work on Multiple Screens
Named 2022 Designed for Surface Product of the Year by Microsoft, the SD4845P USB-C 10Gbps Triple Video Driverless Docking Station with 85W Power Delivery enables a single USB-C cable to provide a plug-and-play connection for up to three 1080p monitors, with no need for drivers, dongles, or adapters. Featuring 85W power delivery, the SD4845P uses the same USB-C cable to keep the Surface device charged, and enables the use of a mouse, keyboard, and other USB accessories connected to the dock.
The SD4845P, which incorporates two DisplayPort™++ 1.4 ports and one HDMI® 2.0b port, supports up to single 4K @ 60Hz, dual 1440p @ 60Hz, and triple 1080p @ 60Hz. The 9-in-1 design features one USB-C 3.2 Gen2 port, one USB-A 3.2 Gen2 port, and a combo audio port on the front of the dock. The rear features two USB-A 3.2 Gen2 ports, a Gigabit Ethernet port, two DP++ 1.4 ports, and one HDMI® 2.0b port. The dock can be mounted vertically or horizontally to accommodate various desktop environments.
