Kensington Designs Power Splitter to Create the Ultimate Docking Solution for Today’s Mixed-Computer Environments

New 60W USB 3.0 Power Splitter the Perfect Complement to the SD4700P Docking Station

San Mateo, CA – October 16, 2018 – Kensington®, the worldwide leader of desktop computing and mobility solutions for IT, business, and home office professionals and The Professionals’ Choice, introduced the 60W USB 3.0 Power Splitter for SD4700P (K38310, SRP $49.99) to provide a power delivery option to USB 3.0 laptops via the SD4700P Universal USB-C and USB 3.0 Docking Station (K38240, SRP $219.99). Used together, the SD4700P Docking Station and optional Power Splitter support the latest USB-C and legacy USB 3.0 computers to provide the ultimate flexible docking solution for mixed-computer environments.

With a simple set-up, Kensington’s SD4700P Universal USB-C and USB 3.0 Docking Station conveniently connects any Windows or Mac laptop equipped with USB 3.0 or USB-C to quickly transfer audio, video, data, and power. Extend the productivity capabilities of today’s thin laptops with the SD4700P dock’s one USB-C port (supplying up to 15W of power to connected accessories) and five USB 3.0 ports, one of which supplies up to 2.1A fast-charging to power a tablet or smartphone. A 135W Power Supply Adapter powers the Universal Docking Station and provides up to 60W of power for devices connected using USB-C Power Delivery.

The SD4700P dock gives the connected user access to a DisplayPort++ and HDMI to provide flexible video connections with support up to 2560x1600 @ 60Hz for a single monitor or 2048x1152 @ 30Hz for dual monitors using DisplayLink. Zero Footprint Mounting (K33959, SRP $9.99) for the SD4700P provides the option to attach the dock to the back of any VESA® compatible external display for an uncluttered workspace.

A Combo 3.5mm Headphone and Microphone Jack connects your favorite headset, while a Gigabit Ethernet Port provides a secure and reliable 1Gb wired networking connection. The SD4700P Docking Station includes a Kensington Security Slot that protects your technology investment via easy implementation of a Kensington security cable. 

The new 60W USB 3.0 Power Splitter for SD4700P allows for a truly universal solution that enables the docking station to power USB 3.0 enabled laptops. A cost-effective choice for environments with mixed deployments or shared workspaces, the Power Splitter’s eight Power Tip Adapters can be dongle-connected for quick access using the included retention rings to provide ample connection opportunities for Dell, HP, Lenovo, and other leading manufacturers. A 1M Laptop Cable accommodates multiple power tips to be tethered to the cable at one time, while a 0.5M Power Plug Cable offers a tidy and tangle-free connection to the SD4700P dock.

As the industry transitions from legacy USB 3.0 devices to the latest USB-C technology, Kensington’s SD4700P Universal USB-C and USB 3.0 Docking Station and the new 60W USB 3.0 Power Splitter provide a scalable solution that companies can use to standardize their evolving mixed-computer environments. As more manufacturers incorporate the power of USB-C ports, Kensington’s comprehensive suite of connectivity and productivity products ensure that customers have access to all the external displays, keyboards, mice, storage devices, and other peripherals they need.
