Mission-critical connectivity

The Thunderbolt 3 10GbE NIC adapter is the perfect solution for your mission-critical operations. The network adapter supports 802.1Q VLAN tagging for better network management, 802.3ad link aggregation for greater network speeds, redundancy support for network reliability, and four 10G fiber connections through open SFP+ fiber slots, to build a custom setup.

Install and assemble with ease

Requiring only a Phillips type screwdriver and your choice of SFP, this Thunderbolt 3 10GbE NIC adapter can be assembled and connected in minutes.

Change up your chassis

The Thunderbolt 3 chassis not only pairs well with the 10G fiber network card, the card can be swapped for any PCIe card to help support other functionality and performance. With the extra TB3 port and DP output built into the chassis, you will always have the ability to hook up extended displays to multitask effortlessly.

The TB31PCIEX16 and PEX10GSFP4I are backed by a StarTech.com 2-year warranty.

Applications

Ideal for systems that need to run 24/7 and require increased network bandwidth and reliability such as industrial automation companies and POS systems

An easy solution for those whose network security is top priority and require a direct fiber connection, such as financial institutions and federal agencies

Use to create a video / audio editing console, with 10Gbps access to network storage

Great for remote embedded industrial monitoring systems, and high-speed video surveillance

For businesses looking to enhance bandwidths that are difficult to achieve using copper

Special Notes / Requirements
Note The expansion chassis does not support video cards.
This expansion chassis does not provide full power delivery but will provide 15W of power, resulting in a slow charge to some laptops, such as MacBook Pro. When the dock is connected to your host laptop, a charging icon may appear on your laptop's screen. This is only sufficient enough to charge your laptop in sleep state, and charging will require an extended time period.
5K support can only be achieved using a Thunderbolt 3 5K monitor. DisplayPort 5K monitors will not work with this expansion chassis.
A 4K-capable display is required to achieve 4K x 2K resolution (4K is also known as 4K x 2K).
Certain monitors may be limited to 4K at 30Hz when connecting through DisplayPort. These monitors include the following models: Dell P2715Q, Viewsonic VX2475Smhl-4K, Philips 288P6LJEB, LG 31MU97C-B, Asus PB287Q (these models will need to be set to 4K at 30Hz).
When connecting a display to one of the Thunderbolt 3 USB-C ports, a USB-C video adapter might be required depending on the input of your display.
Secondary Thunderbolt 3 port can also be used to connect USB 3.1 (10Gbps) USB-Type C devices, such as USB 3.1 Hubs. Backwards compatible with USB 3.0 (USB 3.1 Gen 1), and USB 2.0.
System and Cable Requirements Thunderbolt 3 equipped computer with a Thunderbolt 3 port.
