  • To avoid the monitor flickering issues on the above monitor models, you can run Dual 4K monitors at 30Hz by using one of these solutions: 1) change the monitor setting to DP 1. 1 instead of 1. 2; 2) change the monitor input resolution to 4K/30Hz. Otherwise, you can run a single 4K display with any of the Above monitors by not using the DisplayPort on the dock, but by using one of the TB3 ports with a USB-C to HDMI cable.

Q: Is there a setup and usage video?
A: Yes, just scroll down a bit below these FAQ's and the technical details; also view it at

Q: Does the SD5200t docking station work with both Windows and Mac OS?
A: Yes.

Q: Does this dock require new driver installation on my computer?
A: We recommend you ensure that your computer’s Thunderbolt 3 driver is the most up to date version.

Q: Does this dock support USB-C Power Delivery (PD)?
A: Yes, the dock supports USB-C Power Delivery through the Thunderbolt 3 connector, up to 85W.

Q: Can I use a non-Thunderbolt 3 USB-C cable with this dock?
A: The cable used for the dock must be an Intel-certified Thunderbolt 3 cable. A . 5m Intel-certified TB3 cable is included. Longer cables can cause performance issues. If you lose or damage the included cable, our can check the official Thunderbolt website for certified cables.

Q: Is this Thunderbolt 3 dock backwards compatible with a non-Thunderbolt 3 USB-C port, Thunderbolt 1 or 2 ports, or a USB-A port?
A: No.

Q: Does the USB-C port on the front of the dock support video over USB-C?
A: The front USB-C port is a data-only port and supports 5V/3A (15W) of power.

Q:What video standards are supported through this dock?
A: The DisplayPort connector on the dock would support DP v1. 2 + + , or DisplayPort dual-mode, where passive cabling to DisplayPort, HDMI, and DVI standards are allowed. The Thunderbolt 3 ports are fully compatible to USB-C DisplayPort Alt mode standards, where a USB-C to video adapter can be used to connect to a second monitor. We recommend using Kensington CV4000H USB-C to HDMI adapter (K33993WW) or CV2000V USB-C to VGA adapter (K33994WW).

Q: What is the maximum resolution supported by the dock?
A: Up to two monitors at 4K/60Hz: both the DisplayPort connector and the Thunderbolt 3 ports support DisplayPort v1. 2 standards of 4096 x 2160 @ 60Hz. The dock can also support a single 5K/60Hz monitor. Typically, the 5K monitor would use two DisplayPort inputs to achieve this; alternatively you can use the dock’s DisplayPort plus one of the dock’s Thunderbolt 3 ports to a monitor’s DisplayPort input (using a USB-C to DisplayPort cable or adapter). To support 4K @ 60Hz, ensure that DisplayPort 1. 2 or MST (multi-stream support) is enabled on your display

Q: What should I do if I am getting inconsistent video performance when the dock is connected to a 4K monitor at 4K resolution?
A: The video performance may be affected by the quality of the DisplayPort cable used in the setup when using 4K resolution. We recommend that the user try a different cable to see if the problem persists. A cable less than 1.5M in length is desired.

Q: Why is the audio still coming out of the laptop instead of the external speakers/headset that I connected to dock?|
A: Sometimes the computer will not automatically make the audio channel coming out of the dock as the default. In this case go to Mac OS: System Preferences - Sound - Output, and select USB Audio as the default audio channel.
