Analysis of common problems of Type-c Hub docking station
Purplelec is a comprehensive enterprise manufacturer specializing in custom development, design, and manufacturing of Type-c Hub docking stations. The products have passed the ISO9000 quality system, ROHS environmental protection certification, CE, FCC certification, national 3C certification, etc.! Advantages and features Support 4K high-definition, fast transmission speed, high compatibility, multi-interface expansion! Products are exported to Europe, America, Japan and other developed countries! It is a high-quality cooperation partner of brand merchants, e-commerce companies and foreign traders. The following Purplelec will analyze the common problems of the Type-c Hub docking station overheating, Wi-Fi/Bluetooth disconnection, motherboard burning, etc.!
The type-c Hub expansion dock will generate heat, the difference is the degree of heat generation.
According to the test results of the previous Hengping, we have concluded a rule: the docking station with a small size (such as a five-in-one docking station) has a limited heat dissipation area, and the heat will be more serious, and the heat can reach more than 50 degrees; the volume The large (10-in-1 docking station) docking station has a large heat dissipation area, the heating temperature is generally lower, and the temperature is stable below 50 degrees.
The manufacturer of the expansion dock refers to the standard GB4943.1-2011 in terms of heat generation (the temperature of the metal material held for a short time should not exceed 60 degrees). From the results of our test, no matter the size, the heat generation of the expansion dock is average. Between 45 degrees and 55 degrees, they all meet this standard. If you are worried about the heating of the docking station, it is best to connect it directly with a cable. In addition, it is recommended not to charge the laptop through the type-c expansion dock, because first, it will increase heat generation, and second, it will increase the risk.
2. Wi-Fi, Bluetooth interference
The reason for the disconnection of Wi-Fi and Bluetooth is that the signal shielding of the docking station is not done well. This kind of problem mainly occurs on domestic docking stations of small and medium brands, because these docking stations basically do not do signal shielding. Take the best Apple converter made of signal shielding as an example. Apple wraps the PCB board of the converter with a metal shielding layer 360 degrees without dead ends, thus avoiding the problem of Wi-Fi and Bluetooth interference. Domestic small and medium-sized brands do not take signal shielding seriously, and basically do not take signal shielding measures, so Wi-Fi or Bluetooth disconnection is common during use.
How to solve the problem of interference?
If you haven't bought a docking station yet, it is recommended to choose a docking station from Huawei/Apple/Belkin/Shanze. The signal shielding of these docking stations is well done. If you have already bought a docking station, you can try to connect your laptop and mobile phone to a wireless network in the 5G frequency band. This method is effective in our own personal test. After our mbp switched from 2.4G to 5G network, the Bluetooth mouse has basically never been disconnected. Before, it had to be disconnected at least 4-5 times a day.
3. Burn the motherboard
Judging from the exchanges on various websites, the problem of burning the motherboard basically involves charging the laptop through the type-c expansion dock.
How to minimize the probability of burning the motherboard?
First of all, we must avoid poor-quality expansion docks, and secondly, do not charge the laptop through the type-c expansion dock. It is best to plug in directly for charging.
