Persona® M30e ID Card Printer
Persona M30e ID Card Printer
ACCESS efficiency.
The simple way to personalize
monochrome photo ID cards.
The Persona M30e is all about simple, reliable and affordable ID card printing. It’s designed to personalize plastic cards with
monochrome text, photos, bar codes or magnetic stripes, quickly and economically. That makes the M30e ideal for on-thespot issuance applications such as membership, library and customer loyalty cards, and visitor badges, where personalized
data is added to pre-printed color cards.
Looks great, thick or thin.
Using resin thermal transfer technology, the M30e delivers sharp, monochrome printing on durable plastic ID cards as thick
as 40 mil (1.016mm) or as thin as 9 mil (.23mm). These extra-thin cards are growing in popularity for mass transit, health
care and loyalty applications. They're easy to mail, attach to a patient's chart or slip into a wallet.
Hassle is out. Easy is in.
The Persona M30e’s easy-loading, all-in-one ribbon cartridge saves time and eliminates the mess and expense of torn,
wasted ribbons. Simply open the front panel, slide in the monochrome ribbon cartridge (choose from seven colors including
metallic silver or gold), close the panel and you’re done. There’s nothing to feed, nothing to fumble with, nothing to tear.
And since the card cleaning roller is integrated into the ribbon cartridge, you automatically change the cleaning roller every
time you change the ribbon.
Access on a budget.
Adding the optional magnetic stripe encoding module allows the Persona M30e to produce access cards for buildings and
parking facilities, as well as cardholder ID applications such as library and video store check out. By combining color preprinted cards with quick monochrome printing and magnetic stripe encoding, the Persona M30e makes instant issuance of
access cards practical.
One side, or two?
The Persona M30e comes in both single- and dual-sided models. If you only need cards printed on one side, choose the
compact, single-sided M30e. But if you want the flexibility of printing on both sides — to put a bar code on the back, for
example — opt for the dual-sided M30e.
Simply the best value available.
The Persona M30e packs 30 years of printing technology development and experience into a simple, compact unit. It gives
you outstanding performance and reliability at a much higher level than its price would suggest. When your organization
needs a reliable, affordable monochrome ID card printer, the choice is simple — Persona M30e.
