i-tec USB-C Metal 4K Docking Station + Power Delivery

New

Expand the world of your possibilities! Using one single cable, you can convert your USB-C or Thunderbolt 3-based notebook or tablet into a powerful, multifunctional workstation that connects you with all your accessories as well as a powerful monitor. Installing this docking station is extremely simple – just plug in the USB-C cable and get it done; your operating system will take care of the drivers’ installation. The docking station allows you not only to connect your favorite device with the USB interface but also to charge your notebook through the USB-C port up to 85W. Do not limit yourself with the notebook display area and connect to an external monitor up to 4K (3840×2160@30Hz) through the HDMI interface. With an integrated LAN port, you can connect to the computer network and the Internet safely, easily and quickly (the station supports 10/100/1000 Mbps). You do not have to worry about WIFI interception, signal interference, and you will also save electricity.

This docking station offers you four USB 3.0 ports that, thanks to backward compatibility, will be able to work not only with your USB 3.1 and 3.0 devices but also with 2.0. One of the ports on the docking station is also equipped with the BC 1.2 specification, which means that your USB device (such as a mobile phone or tablet) will be charged up to 4 times faster than via a conventional USB port! you will appreciate full multimedia experience at work or entertainment in complete privacy with an integrated audio jack that lets you connect your headphones and microphone.

To ensure unimpaired video signal transfer, the video signal output from the notebook/tablet, encapsulated in USB-C signal, must comply with the VESA DisplayPort standard. Without this, a fault (i.e. image flickering) may occur. Notebooks that do not automatically comply with the VESA standard, for example the ACER Switch Alpha 12” or ACER TravelMate X349-G2-M, may still work, although the video quality cannot be guaranteed.

Please make sure to check a compatibility of your device, whether it meets all the requirements for an operation of the specific i-tec product, especially video output (Display Port Alt mode), and/or Power Delivery. If your device would not be fully compatible, your new i-tec product may not operate correctly. You may find the specifications your device (i.e. USB port), in a user manual supplied with your notebook/tablet/smartphone, or – alternatively – via customer service provided by a manufacturer of your device. If still uncertain, however, contact our service at support@itecproduct.com.

FAQ

Question: Can I use Adaptor to transfer signal from HDMI/Display Port port to VGA/DVI Port?
Answer: We do not recomend transfering Digital signal (HDMI/DVI) to Analog (VGA/DVI) due the technological restrictions of Analog ports (their low data bandwidth), these adaptors might not work corectly.

 

Question: On my MacBook 13″ / 15″ 2016 and later, wi-fi or Bluetooth stops working; or USB 3.0 devices connected to the docking station disconnect. Where is the problem?

Answer: This problem is caused by interference in the range of 2.4GHz. A possible solution is to connect the docking station to  the Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) port of the Mac on the left side nearest to you or use the ports on the right side. These ports are situated farthest from the wi-fi antenna. The next solution is the use of the 5GHz zone and the placement of the docking station as far as it could be from the monitor of your Mac. For more information, please refer to: https://support.apple.com/en-gb/HT201163

 

Question: In Windows, some wireless devices (WLAN dongle or, for example, Microsoft Wireless set 3000/5000), which are connected in the docking station, stop working or irregularly disconnect. Where is  the problem?

Answer: Sometimes, USB 3.0 ports are cancelled with a 2.4GHz wireless device. The wireless device should be placed outside of the close proximity of USB 3.0 ports and cables. Place the wireless device as far from the USB 3.0 ports and cables as possible. You could use for these purposes, for example, an extension cord for the connection of WLAN dongles or sets.

 

Question: I have your device and picture transmission doesn’t work.

Answer: Your device has to comply with the system requirements, mainly: support of DP alt mode on the USB-C port. Our web-site includes a review of the supported devices. In case you cannot find your device in the list, please turn either to the manufacturer of the device or to our technical assistance: support@itecproduct.com.

 

Question: I have a notebook with a Thunderbolt 3 port; despite of it, the notebook is not recharged.

Answer: According to the specification of Thunderbolt 3, power supply of the notebook is just optional. Not all laptops have this option, mainly laptops with a power supply source higher than 100W.

 

Question: The picture on the connected monitor is blinking.

Answer: Try to use a more quality HDMI cable (we recommend a HDMI version 1.4b and higher); it can solve your problem.

 

Question: Can I get more detailed information on the problems related to the USB-C docking station?
Answer: Of course, you can contact our technical help: support@itecproduct.com
