I suspect that you want to use your iMac as a display with the so-called "Target Display Mode".


Which iMac do you have exactly? According to Apple, the "iMac (Retina 5K, 27-inch, Late 2014) and later iMac models can't be used as Target Display Mode displays" (https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT204592).


Furthermore, the Mid 2011-Mid 2014 models can only be used as external screens for devices that have a Thunderbolt port (see https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT204592). As the Miix 510 doesn't have Thunderbolt, you're out of luck if you have one of those iMacs.


If you have an iMac 27-inch Late 2009 or an iMac 27-inch, Mid 2010 however, you should be able to use it as an external monitor with your Miix 510 with a USB-C to Mini DisplayPort cable


Please don't pin me down to that as I'm not an expert for Apple devices and that's just the information I've found after a short research.
