Fargo 49000 DTC4500 Brochure | ID Zone

The DTC4500 offers field-upgradeable
options for migration to higher levels of
security in the future:
Optional card lamination for applying
overlaminates to produce high-secure
cards that resist forgery and increase
card durability; and unique, dual-sided
simultaneous lamination to save time
with increased throughput.
Dual-sided printing module provides
more space for cardholder information
and security features like duplicate photo
and digital-signature.
Technology encoding modules encode
data for magnetic stripe, proximity,
contact (factory upgrade) and/or
contactless technology cards, such as
iCLASS®, for access control or other
High-volume performance – Built for organizations requiring robust, high-volume
printing every day. Standard features include high-capacity ribbon supplies and dualinput card hoppers that allow for maximum card input capacity and management of
multiple card types
Maximum security – Optional single- or dual-sided simultaneous lamination offers
enhanced card security and durability
Highly versatile – The modular design allows organizations to build upon their
investment by adding field-upgradeable modules, such as dual-sided printing and
technology card encoding
Earth friendly – ENERGY STAR® certified for efficient energy consumption
The versatility of the DTC4500 is
unsurpassed. Empowered by an extremely
robust and highly-reliable print engine,
this high-volume printer delivers speed,
power and versatility rolled into one.
High-capacity ribbons enable the
DTC4500 to print twice as many full-color
cards as most printers before the ribbon
has to be changed, providing continuous
high-quality card printing and encoding.
The DTC4500 combines high security and
convenience to easily print what you need,
Built-in security with passwordprotected printer operation and
fluorescent panel printing for a costeffective and dynamic increase in card
SmartScreen™ graphical display
provides easy-to-follow prompts so
you’ll always know printer status.
Standard dual-input card hopper for
increased capacity or management of
multiple card types.
Easy integration into existing IT
infrastructures through the builtin Ethernet and USB connection,
allowing for centralized or remote ID
card issuance.
Industry’s first inline card printing and
technology card encoding with one
connection using USB or Ethernet
Fully compatible with Asure ID® card
personalization software for badge
design, database management and
technology card encoding.
The FARGO® DTC4500 is built with
Genuine HID™ technology and is fully
interoperable with other products in the
HID ecosystem, enabling organizations
to leverage their existing HID technology

** Print speed indicates an approximate print speed and is measured from the time a card drops into the output hopper to the time the next card
drops into the output hopper. Print speeds do not include encoding time or the time needed for the PC to process the image. Process time is
dependent on the size of the file, the CPU, amount of RAM and the amount of available resources at the time of the print.
