The DTC4250e not only meets your current
needs, it can also be scaled to meet future
requirements with the following optional
field-upgradeable modules:
A Wi-Fi accessory for Ethernet-enabled
Highly versatile – Powerful printing in a modular, scalable design that simplifies
equipment upgrades and migration to higher levels of security.
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.
Easy-to-use – Efficient set-up, loading and printing with all-in-one print ribbon and
card cleaning cartridge (EZ), and SmartScreen™ graphical display.
Enhanced protection – Standard printer password protection and fluorescent panel
printing provide a cost-effective and dynamic means of increasing card security.
Earth friendly – ENERGY STAR® certified for efficient energy consumption and
eco-friendly (ECO) refill ribbons.
printers , allowing you to print anywhere,
Choose from either the easy-to-use all-inone 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.
A dual-sided printing module that
enables you to add additional company
or cardholder information and security
features, such as duplicate photos and
digital signature.
Optional same-side, input/output card
hopper and movable SmartScreen™
graphical display allows the printer to fit
into tight spaces.
Dual-input card hopper holds 200 cards
for higher capacity printing and encoding.
Optional technology card encoders that
allow you to easily migrate to contact
and contactless smart card technologies
Designed for medium-sized businesses,
schools and local government institutions
seeking versatility in a convenient, professional and secure printer/encoder system,
the DTC4250e is ideal for flexible, easy
and reliable color printing and encoding of
technology cards.
The DTC4250e combines versatility with
simplicity to easily print what you need
ƒƒ A sleek design with changeable
footprint to accommodate office
environments where space is at a
SmartScreen graphical display with
easy-to-follow prompts ensures you’ll
always know printer status.
Eco-friendly erase and rewrite feature
is ideal for creating temporary ID
(including but not limited to iCLASS SE®
or MIFARE®) or simple mag stripe and
prox cards as needed.
FARGO Workbench™ diagnostic
utility facilitates printer maintenance.
Its Color Assist™ tool matches spot
colors, ensuring accurate prints of
graphics such as company logos.
Fully compatible with Asure ID® card
personalization software for badge
design, database management
and technology card encoding, as
well as EasyLobby® Secure Visitor
Management solutions.
The FARGO® DTC4250e is built with
Genuine HID® technology and is fully
interoperable with other products in the
HID ecosystem, enabling organizations
to leverage their existing technology

sublimation black.
** 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.
