Imagine using your Surface Book or Surface Book 2 as a full ergonomic desktop workstation...
- Reduces neck/eye strain by raising the Surface to eye-level right next to your monitors
- Provides convenient drop-in-docking and lift-and-go un-docking - no more fumbling with cables
- Charges your Surface while also connecting to monitors and your USB devices when you clip-in your own dock electronics
- Reduces clutter by getting your Surface, dock, and cables off your desk
- Seamless integration with Enterprise and consumer-grade ergonomic solutions via standard VESA 100mm x 100mm mounting
- Connect two external monitors seamlessly while continuing to use Surface screen for a total of three screens. (Up to 5 screens possible with additional hardware)
- The optional active cooling kit maintains system performance by improving airflow for both the CPU and NVIDIA GPU
- The optional horizontal mounting kit allows you to use the pivot built into your VESA arm to rotate 90 degrees between vertical and horizontal while keeping your Surface secure
What's in the box?
- laser-cut VESA mounting plate in black acrylic
- industrial 3D-printed parts in black PETG
- spring-loaded security latch
- mounting kit
- optional accessories (see below)
- does NOT include a VESA arm or dock electronics - although we can build packages that do include these
How does everything fit together?
- Mounting cage for the Microsoft Dock 1 or Dock 2 electronics - clip-in your own electronics
- USB-C receptacle so you can use your own 3rd-party universal USB-C hub instead of Microsoft electronics (Surface Book 2 and 3 only) (Docking with USB-C is more difficult than with the Microsoft Dock due to the smaller connector and careful alignment required. Folks with disabilities should consider using the Microsoft Dock instead.
- Horizontal mounting kit to allow the use the pivot built into your VESA arm to rotate 90 degrees between vertical and horizontal while keeping your Surface secure
- Active cooling kit to reduce CPU/GPU performance throttling. A high-efficiency blower fan provides improved airflow to minimize CPU and GPU performance throttling. (With the Furmark benchmark, we've seen 10-25% increases in long-term CPU and GPU package power draw with 20-21°C ambient temperatures. Actual performance may vary.) A manual speed controller is included to optimize cooling performance vs fan noise At full speed the fan is rather loud (39dBa) so most people run it at half speed.
