As most of the devices are USB-C enabled, ALOGIC has introduced its new series of USB-C Fusion Hubs, consisting of 4 different versions, Fusion Max, Fusion Swift, Fusion Alpha and Fusion Core.
Let us look at each of the Hubs individually and understand the differences and similarities:
ALOGIC stays true to its word of providing the most efficient and elegant designs for Hubs. The Fusion Series are impressively built to provide multiple functionalities yet being extremely compact and portable, they have a very small footprint making it easy to be carried along and used while working on the go, even when it comes to using the Hubs for shared workspaces, this compact design helps maintain a tidy desk within a limited working space.
The Fusion series are available in Space Grey colour which compliments easily with your Apple devices making it appear as an extended version of them. It also comes with a smart cable management system which allows the cable to be easily tucked in when not in use.
All the Hubs are provided with EMI Shielding, to eliminate any all the interferences coming from Wi-Fi or other wireless transmissions.
To accommodate connection of all the external devices, the Fusion series provides different connection ports as per the models available, one can choose from the following options:
This 6-in-1 Hub expands the functionality of the USB-C enabled device further by providing connection for HDMI 4K output port, a VGA Port for legacy display devices, a USB-C(USB 3.1 Gen 1)data transfer and charging port with PD(100W), 2 x USB-A (USB 3.0) ports and a Gigabit Ethernet port.
The Hub supports Full HD display via its VGA port and 4K resolution over the HDMI port. Both USB-A and USB-C ports can provide a transfer speed of up to 5Gbps and allows fast-charging of your mobile phones.
