Data Sheet


What is USB Type-C®?
With USB Type-C®, a distinction must be made between which USB version it is (USB 2.0, 3.0, 3.1). Since the introduction of the USB Type-C® connector and the USB 3.1 (Gen 2) interface, there has been a lot of confusion regarding the connection. Because behind the USB Type-C® there is not automatically USB 3.1 (Gen 2), let alone Thunderbolt ™ 3. Although the new Type-C® form factor is built into many products, it does not provide USB 3.1 (Gen 2) in terms of performance. It is possible that notebooks and tablets still only support USB 3.0 or even USB 2.0 despite the USB Type-C® connection. Pay particular attention to the information provided by the manufacturer! USB 3.1 (Gen 2) with the Type-C® connection not only offers a data transfer rate of up to 10 Gbit / s, but can also transmit audio and video signals in various alternate modes (Alt mode).
What is alternate Mode?
The Alternate Mode (Alt Mode) is part of USB Type-C®. It ensures that several functions can be covered via a USB Type-C® connection and thus via a single cable. E.g. DisplayPort ™ and HDMI®. For example, a docking station can be supplied with signals for audio, video and data at the same time. It is important that both the docking station and the notebook or PC support the alternate mode (Alt Mode)!
Compatibility with host computers?
All your USB devices from USB 3.0 are completely supported. With an adapter, the DockingStation can additionally be connected to a USB 3.0 Type-C® port. Make sure that the latest USB drivers and DisplayLink drivers are installed.
Can I set the refresh rate?
Yes it is possible. Make the setting according to your operating system. Please note, however, that the adapter supports a maximum of 30 Hz or 60 Hz.
Does the adapter prevent the use of video connections on the notebook directly?
No, their use does not restrict the function of your video connections on the notebook itself.
Everything is connected, but still no function?
• Install all current USB drivers in your system.
• Install the latest drivers for the graphics card in your system. (We recommend that you always obtain the driver directly from the manufacturer.)
• Restart your system after installing the latest drivers.
Check the connected components individually in a different environment that can be proven to be functional. Check the following components: the cables used, the monitor (s), your notebook or the USB Type-C® connection used and the docking station itself.
The output image jerks / flickers
• This can occur if the refresh rate is set incorrectly. Check the settings in your system. If e.g. 59 Hz is set, please change this to 60 Hz, if 29 Hz are set, please set 30 Hz.

• If that doesn't solve the problem, try using a good quality cable.
Is it difficult to set up the adapter?
Installieren Sie einfach die DisplayLink Treiber-Software und schließen Sie die DockingStation an Ihrem Notebook oder PC an. Der Treiber von DisplayLink konfiguriert den Monitor automatisch für eine optimale Bildqualität und speichert diese Einstellungen für die zukünftige Verwendung.
How can I continue working with my notebook closed?
Windows® provides special settings in which you can regulate how the notebook behaves when it is closed.

• You can make these settings in the power options.

• Now select “further energy settings”.

• Now go to "Select what should happen when you close the computer"

• Select “Do nothing”

Mac® So that the Mac® does not switch off when it is closed, the following things are necessary:

• The MacBook® must be connected to the power supply.

• A mouse and keyboard must be connected.

• A monitor must be connected.

If this is the case, the MacBook® can also be used when it is closed.
What is the maximum number of external monitors supported by the DisplayLink software?
Up to 6 additional monitors are possible under Windows®. 4 additional monitors are possible under macOS®.
The included USB cable is too short, can I use a third-party cable?
Yes, this is basically possible. However, we do not recommend this!
Does the DockingStation prevent the use of video connections on the notebook directly?
No, the use of the DockingStation does not restrict the function of your video connections on the notebook itself.
No network connection via the DockingStation, but there is via the host computer. Why is it?
The LAN / WLAN may only be released for known Mac addresses. In this case, the Mac address of the DockingStation and the notebook must be equated or the Mac address must be allowed to pass through from the notebook. You can usually make this setting in the BIOS of your notebook.
Windows 8/8.1 and 10
• Go to the Windows® settings and select “System” - “Network operation and energy saving”. There you then select the "additional energy settings".

• Click the power plan settings that you want to change.

• Click on "Change advanced power settings".

• Click the plus sign (+) next to “USB Settings” and “Select USB Power Saving Setting” to expand the options and change the setting to “Disabled”.

• Click OK to apply the setting.

Note: You may have to disconnect and reconnect your DockingStation after applying these settings in order to reconnect.
The video output does not work even after installing the latest DisplayLink driver.
Apple devices with the operating system macOS® 10.13.4 are not supported! As of macOS® 10.13.5 and higher, the operation of the DockingStation is again possible without restrictions!
Why does my wireless mouse or keyboard look sluggish or does not work properly when used with the DockingStation?
Most USB wireless mouse and keyboard receivers work in the 2.4 GHz band. Connecting the receiver to any USB 3.0 port can cause interference that can affect the performance of the device. The most effective method is to add a short USB 2.0 extension cable between the DockingStation and receiver to mitigate the effect, and many wireless keyboards and mice are therefore supplied with such a cable.
How do I know the Mac address of the DockingStation?

Connect the DockingStation to the running Windows® computer and connect the LAN cable, switch on the DockingStation if necessary.

Right click on the Windows® icon in the lower left corner.

Select the "Run".

Enter cmd and confirm by pressing OK/ENTER.

Write ipconfig/all and confirm by pressing the ENTER key.

The connected network devices with Mac address are now displayed.


Connect the DockingStation to the running MacOS® computer and connect the LAN cable, switch on the DockingStation if necessary.

Click on System Report.

Click on Network.

Select the appropriate device. The Mac address is displayed below.

NO headphones and speakers, BUT YES: media player and NAS
After the Windows® operating system has been updated, the DockingStation no longer works.
Please follow the steps below:

• Disconnect the DockingStation from the host computer.

• Download and start the DisplayLink Installation Cleaner.

• Download and install the latest DisplayLink drivers.

• Restart the notebook / PC.

• Reconnect the DockingStation.
The image output by the DockingStation jerks / flickers
• This can occur if the refresh rate is set incorrectly. Check the settings in your system. If, for example, 59 HZ is set, please change this to 60 Hz. Likewise for 29 Hz, please set to 30 Hz here.

• If that doesn't solve the problem, try using a good quality cable.
After the notebook is idle, the monitor is not switched on again
• Change the input signal setting on your monitor from AUTO to the source used (e.g. HDMI® or DisplayPort ™). If the automatic search for an active connection does not find a video signal after a long period of time, the monitor will go into sleep mode and may no longer respond to the signal from the DockingStation.

• Windows® may have automatically switched off the USB root hub to save energy. To prevent this from happening, use the following steps to change the USB root hub settings so that it stays on during hibernation.
