Product Description

Fargo DTC4500e Description

With a three-year warranty, the Fargo PR-FG-55100 DTC4500e dual-sided ID card printer features ribbon options, dual input hoppers, and built-in password protection. Offering high-volume performance and maximum security, the Fargo PR-FG-55100 DTC4500e dual-sided card printer is designed for organizations that require robust, high-volume printing on an everyday basis.

  • Operate and maintain your printer with ease
    The Fargo DTC4500e dual-sided card printer is ideal for high volume print runs where quality and security are most important. Boasting 50% faster print speeds than its predecessor, the Fargo DTC4500e dual-sided printer prints 24 seconds full color (YMCKOK) dual-sided cards per hour. Two ribbon options are available for all needs: (1) The EZ ribbon offers the easy-to-use disposable cartridge which is simple to load and replace and (2) The ECO ribbon is more economical and eco-friendly. It is a refill ribbon which is to be placed into a refillable ribbon cartridge, eliminating the need to throw the plastic cartridge away with each ribbon change.
  • Access the technology your application requires
    The Fargo DTC4500e PR-FG-55100 printer produces ID cards using dye-sublimation printing for vivid color and accurate images and thermal transfer printing for sharp black text and readable barcodes. QR codes can be passed through the printer as a complete image and then printed to the card. Plus, the DTC4500e can print on 9 mil up to 40 mil thick cards, allowing it to easily accommodate sophisticated access control badges and smart cards.
  • Print where you want
    The DTC4500e dual-sided printer can easily integrate anywhere you need it with its high speed USB and Ethernet ports. The built-in internal print server allows you to install the DTC4500e dual-sided printer on your existing network (LAN) for remote access printing and high-volume card issuance without having the printer directly connected to your computer.
  • Create secure ID cards
    The DTC4500e dual-sided printer is designed to migrate from lower to higher security levels, offering built-in printer password protection and optional fluorescing ribbons for Ultra-Violet or UV printing. If higher levels of security are needed, it offers additional field-upgradable options for increased security and printer output.
  • Backed by the best warranty around
    To ensure you get maximum value from the investment in your card printer, the Fargo PR-FG-55100 DTC4500e is backed by a 3-year printer and printhead warranty, including one no-questions-asked printhead replacement, plus 1 year of loaner printer coverage to keep your card printing program operational.

Customize your printer to your needs with :

  • Optional – Wifi
    To allow remote printer sharing by many users on a network, the Fargo 55100 offers standard Ethernet connectivity with an internal print server. For mobile printing, the printer can optionally be wifi-enabled with an HID wireless accessory.
  • Optional – Same-side input/output hopper (field upgradable)
    If workspace is limited, the optional same-side input/output hopper is a must.
  • Optional – Card encoding 
    The Fargo 55100 offers field-upgradable modules for encoding data for magnetic stripe, proximity, contact and/or contactless technology cards such as iCLASS for access control and other applications.
  • Optional – Single- or dual-sided lamination
    For additional security, add lamination to your cards to create tamper-proof, secure cards resistant to forgery. The high-speed dual-sided simultaneous lamination saves valuable time. The Fargo PR-FG-55100 offers custom holographic overlaminates for even more secure cards. Note: If lamination is not purchased at the time of printer purchase, the lamination module must be installed by our trained technicians. Lamination requires dual-sided printing.
