The DTC1250e offers the following built-in
and optional features:
A dual-sided printing module that
enables you to add additional
company or cardholder information
as needed.
A Wi-Fi accessory for Ethernetenabled printers, allowing you to print
anywhere, anytime.
Choose from either the easy-to-use allin-one ribbon cassette (EZ ribbons) or
the more economical and eco-friendly
refill ribbon (ECO ribbons) option.
An optional iCLASS SE® encoder
that enables your printer to be
compatible with the HID secure
identity ecosystem. This includes the
ability to program the HID PACS data
in the printer. The encoder provides
an additional layer of security to your
identity program by allowing for
processing of Secure Identity Object
(SIO) data, and enabling the printer
to become a Trusted Identity Platform
(TIP) endpoint.
Optional internal server for secure
printing over a network, enabling
distributed card issuance in seconds.
Optional technology card encoders
that allow you to easily migrate to
contact and contactless smart card
technologies (including but not limited
to iCLASS SE® or MIFARE®) or simple
mag stripe and prox cards as needed.
Eco-friendly erase and rewrite feature,
ideal for creating temporary ID cards,
such as visitor badges.
Ability to print on a variety of card
thicknesses to create simple loyalty
cards as thin as 9 mil, or access control
badges as thick as 40 mil.
Fastest printer in its class – Minimize wait time for cards and IDs with this speedy
card printer.
High-quality output – Simple, reliable and affordable photo ID card personalization,
delivering a new level of durable, great-looking credentials.
Simple plug-and-play – The intuitive user-focused design allows for easy set-up,
loading and operation for increased efficiency.
Convenient and affordable – Create ID cards right out of the box with plug-and-play
Swift ID™ embedded badging application.
End-to-End Control, Flexibility and Security - The optional iCLASS SE® encoder
(part of the iCLASS SE open encoder platform) can be fully integrated into your
printer, allowing you to create, encode (read/write) and manage your secure
credentials from start-to-finish. Design personalized ID badges locally and then
program them to work with your current physical access control system (PACS),
streamlining your ordering, inventory management, and issuance processes.
Additional Data Protection – Secure data sent to printer with AES-256 decryption.
Designed for small-to-medium businesses,
the DTC1250e provides maximum
efficiency in a sleek, user-friendly design.
This printer is virtually maintenancefree and prints full-color, plastic ID and
technology cards on a budget.
The DTC1250e adds a level of convenience
to easily print what you need, including:
Choose from easy (EZ), all-in-one print
ribbon and card cleaner or economical
and eco-friendly (ECO) refill ribbons.
Built-in Swift ID™ badging application

** 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.
