Dual 4K Monitors
Thunderbolt 3 Computer
Dual HD Monitors
"Most Thunderbolt 3 docks still sit above the $200 mark, so it's a good option for those who have a tighter budget as well as those who want the convenience of a dock that works well with both Thunderbolt 3 and USB-C PCs.”
No matter if you're connected to a Thunderbolt 3 or USB-C laptop, the USB-C Pro Dock will charge a computer up to 85W, making it a perfect companion for any Mac or Windows PC*.
*Windows PC users must check if their USB-C port is capable of doing laptop charging as not all PC manufacturers have added this functionality to their USB-C ports, limiting them to data or display only.
Dual Display Connectivity Built-In
The USB-C Pro Dock has two built-in DisplayPort connectors for directly adding dual 4K 60Hz monitors to your laptop without the need for any USB-C Video Adapters.
Need to connect a non-DisplayPort monitor, such as HDMI? Just use an “Active" DisplayPort to HDMI cable.
* Some Windows Thunderbolt 3 laptops only support one DisplayPort stream from Thunderbolt 3 port, as the result, such laptops can output up to a single 4K 60Hz or dual 4K 30Hz monitors. Please verify the Thunderbolt 3 port capability with your Windows laptop provider.
** MacBook 12-inch models introduced in 2015, 2016 and 2017 have only one single USB-C port. These USB-C MacBooks can only support dual monitors in mirrored mode.
If you’re sitting at your desk connected to your dual monitors and various devices, why not take advantage of your home or office’s wired Ethernet connection and benefit from a more consistent connection.
The convenient front-facing combo Audio port allows users to easily to connect headphones or speakers.
With the USB-C Pro Dock, you can take the iPad Pro to the next level of computing by connecting a 4K monitor, external drives and devices, SD card reader, audio, Gigabit Ethernet, keyboard, and mouse (AssistiveTouch)* and even fast charging it, all with one cable.
*External drives, devices, keyboard, mouse and SD card support are available in iPadOS. The iPad Pro does not support external dual monitors.
Turn Your Tablet or Smartphone into a Workstation
Turn Your Tablet or Smartphone into a workstation. From the Surface Go to the latest USB-C tablets, the CalDigit USB-C Pro Dock proves it is not just a companion for traditional laptops. Through the USB-C connector, Windows and Android tablet and even smartphone users are capable of gaining access to multiple devices, external display and turning their devices into workstations.
*Full dock functionality depends on the tablet's and smartphone's capabilities. Please contact your device manufacturer to confirm external display, charging and USB device support.
The USB-C Pro Dock is also compatible with non Type-C laptops, for added flexibility. If you have a laptop that is with USB-A ports only, you can still take advantage of the USB-C Pro Dock’s USB connectivity with some limited functionality.
**USB-A users will need a USB-C to USB-A cable sold separately.
All The Time
The ports on the USB-C Pro Dock work contemporaneously. This means that all of your peripherals can be plugged in whilst still providing up to 85W of laptop charging. Most inexpensive USB-C hubs, dongles and some desktop docks on the market, share the limited power source among all your attached devices. The worst case scenario for these devices are to randomly drop out from your computer or data loss. This is not an issue with CalDigit products as the USB-C Pro Dock’s ports work all the time, every time.
Docking Station Utility
CalDigit offers a free software utility that makes it incredibly easy to disconnect all the external drives connected to the USB-C Pro Dock with a single click.
*Currently this docking utility is only available for macOS.
The next generation of USB4 is around the corner and offers higher performance than the current USB 3.2 standard. Whether you’re using current USB technologies or future USB4 laptops, the USB-C Pro Dock will work on it all.*
*Full dock functionality depends on the host computer’s capabilities. Please contact your host device manufacturer to confirm external display, host charging, and USB device support.
Stand Alone Charging
The front-facing USB-A port on the USB-C Pro Dock offers Stand Alone Charging functionality that allows the dock to charge USB devices, such as iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch up to 7.5W without the laptop connected.
CalDigit is known for its Mac-centric design and is passionate about designing products that compliment Apple devices aesthetically and functionally. While none of the other USB-C docks on the market is able to support Apple’s SuperDrive, CalDigit’s USB-C Pro Dock is to deliver such compatibility *. These little details are what sets CalDigit apart from the rest.
*SuperDrive support in macOS requires one time only driver installation. Please download the driver here.
