A savvy technology investment for evolving and mixed computer environments, the SD4700P connects to any laptop equipped with USB-C or USB 3.0, and supports both Windows and Mac operating systems.
Deploying a universal dock has never been easier. The SD4700P offers quick connections to transfer audio, video, data and power (supported USB-C devices only).

Providing support for flexible video connections, the SD4700P will support up to 2560x1600 for a single monitor or 2048x1152 for dual monitors.

135W Power Supply Adapter
Providing ample power for the dock and up to 60W of power for devices connected via Power Delivery (PD) USB-C, the SD4700P is a powerful dock.
