Welcome to your new world of connectivity.
Connect. Work. Disconnect. Go.
The days of only working at your desk are gone. We’re always on the move bouncing between our desks, meetings, and couches — often in a hurry. With a single connection to your notebook computer, the Thunderbolt 3 Dock makes coming back to your desk to work and leaving your desk to run to a meeting, a much quicker endeavor.
The Right Ports.
Right Where You Need Them.
Our engineers evaluated thousands of possibilities in discovering the optimal port configuration for nearly any environment. With its 14 ports of connectivity thoughtfully placed, the Thunderbolt 3 Dock delivers convenience while keeping desktops clutter-free. The docking station’s front is designed for the easy connection of your portable devices, headphones and media cards, while the rear features a multitude of ports for your static devices so cables stay out of sight.
Thunderbolt 3 Power
Thunderbolt 3 is the most advanced and versatile interface available. So we’ve harnessed its power with the Thunderbolt 3 Dock to provide the highest speed and most connection options. The dock’s main Thunderbolt 3 port provides up to 85W of power to your Thunderbolt 3 notebook computer1, while the secondary Thunderbolt 3 port provides Thunderbolt device chaining, USB 3.1 Gen 2 connectivity and display support.
USB connections that matter
The Thunderbolt 3 Dock moves you into the future without leaving the past behind by including two USB Type-C (10Gb/s) ports2 as well as five USB Type-A (5Gb/s) ports, with one of each located conveniently on the front. Whether connecting your printers, storage and keyboards via Type-A or the latest mobile devices and portable SSDs via Type-C, the Thunderbolt 3 Dock has room for all of your gear.
Wired for speed, security
The Gigabit Ethernet port brings access to high-speed, reliable and secure wired networks back to your notebook, giving you the fast data transfers and peace of mind that only come with a hardwired connection. Gigabit Ethernet provides a fast 1000Mb/s connection vs. slower 600Mb/s 802.11n or 48Mb/s 802.11g wireless standards. And for those in need of an even faster connection can utilize the Thunderbolt 3 10G Ethernet Adapter for an up to 10X performance increase over the Gigabit Ethernet.
Music to your ears and everyone else’s
Plug your headphones and mic into the front output/input jack to listen to your music and podcasts, and connect your audio systems into the rear optical S/PDIF port to fill a room with pristine sound.
Multiple displays, multiple types
Screen real estate is a must. One display is no longer enough for office workers, gamers or students, let alone creative professionals. By providing display support via both the Mini DisplayPort and secondary Thunderbolt 3 (USB Type-C) connection, the Thunderbolt 3 Dock can more than triple your screen space by driving two displays with up to 4K resolution or a single 5K display.
Disconnect in One Click
Safely disconnect multiple drives in a single click. OWC Dock Ejector was designed by OWC hardware and software engineers to ensure all data is written before disconnection, saving time and protecting against data loss. It makes losing your hard-earned work a thing of the past.
Thunderbolt 3 to Thunderbolt 2 Adapter Included
The Apple Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) to Thunderbolt 2 (mDP) Adapter allows you to connect a greater to a world of newer Thunderbolt (USB-C) devices to your Thunderbolt or Thunderbolt 2 (Mini DisplayPort) Mac running macOS Sierra. Attach Thunderbolt 3 and Thunderbolt 4 external drives, docks, PCIe expansions chassis, and more.
The adapter is also bi-directional, which means you can also use it to connect your older Thunderbolt 2/Thunderbolt devices to a newer Thunderbolt (USB-C) Mac or iPad.
- If you’re connecting the Thunderbolt 3 Dock to an older Thunderbolt (mDP) Mac – Connect the adapter to the Thunderbolt (USB-C) host port on the Thunderbolt 3 Dock, then use a Thunderbolt 2 Cable between the adapter and your Mac.
- If you’re connecting the Thunderbolt 3 Dock to an older Thunderbolt (mDP) device – Connect the adapter to one of the available Thunderbolt (USB-C) ports on the dock, then use a Thunderbolt 2 Cable between the adapter and your older Thunderbolt device.
If you need a Thunderbolt 2 cable to complete your workflow, OWC offers a selection of premium Thunderbolt 2 cables.
OWC Thunderbolt Cable Included
OWC Thunderbolt 3 Dock comes with a certified 0.7M OWC Thunderbolt Cable. But if your workflow demands a different length to make the connection, OWC Thunderbolt 4/USB-C Cables are the perfect choice.
Stabilize Thunderbolt and USB-C Cables
Active workspaces expose gear to bumps, shoves, or even the random tail wag from a pet. OWC ClingOn custom cable stabilizers (sold separately) screw into the OWC Dock or OWC Drive housing to reduce – if not completely eliminate – cable strain on Thunderbolt and USB-C connections so you can work with confidence even in the highest traffic environments.
- Thunderbolt 2/Thunderbolt compatibility requires a certified Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) to Thunderbolt 2 (mDP) Adapter (included with this bundle) and a Thunderbolt 2 cable. This configuration provides data transfer at Thunderbolt 2 speeds (up to 20Gb/s) but does not support notebook charging.
- The rear-facing Thunderbolt (USB-C) port supports USB connectivity up to 10Gb/s. The front-facing USB-C port supports USB connectivity up to 8Gb/s.
