Product Description

HID Fargo DTC550 Direct-to-Card Printer

HID FARGO's DTC500 Series is expertly engineered -- yet surprisingly simple. Whether you print membership cards, employee access cards, student IDs or loyalty cards, you'll be impressed with the rugged reliability, ease-of-use and quiet performance of these versatile and compact printer-encoders.----And now we've added even more modular capability to the DTC525 and DTC515 models. New Card Lamination Modules let you add clear or holographic overlaminates to one or both sides of your cards for maximum durability and security.

The HID DTC550 is one of the most versatile ID card printers available, handling a wide range of secure ID card applications; from on-demand photo IDs, to high-volume customer loyalty cards, to sophisticated access cards with embedded electronics.

The HID DTC550 produces high-quality ID cards using two different Direct-to-Card (DTC®) printing methods: dyesublimation for vivid colors and accurate photographic images, and resin thermal transfer for sharp black text and bar codes that can be easily read by infrared or visible light scanners.

You can order the DTC550 with either a singlesided or dual-sided print engine. With a variety of options, the DTC550 can save you time by printing, read/writing and laminating up to three different e-card technologies — plus magnetic stripe — all in a single pass. And that includes encoding smart cards and reading proximity cards.

Everywhere you need it
The Fargo DTC550 is an ideal solution for issuing cards at multiple locations. With an Ethernet port and internal print server, you can install a DTC550 anywhere on a LAN. That gives greater freedom when you're planning widespread or high-volume card issuance for applications such as employee access cards, government and student IDs, customer loyalty and membership cards.

Protecting against counterfeiters and physical damage
Want to protect ID badges from alteration, counterfeiting and everyday wear? Add the optional Card Lamination Module to the DTC550, either factory-installed or as a field upgrade. Fargo Holographic Overlaminates give your cards a higher level of security protection and also add a layer of physical protection. They provide durability against swipe abrasion, prevent dye-migration (onto plastic card pouches, for example), and shield against image fading UV light. If your application requires secure cards that resist forgery and tampering, or if your cards are subject to extra physical wear, consider the optional Card Lamination Module.

Easily integrates into your infrastructure
A key feature of the DTC550 is that it plays well with everything else on your network. The DTC550 connects to your Windows®-based PC through its USB port. It can also be added to your network as easily as any workgroup printer. And its print driver provides bi-directional status information, so you can monitor and manage the DTC550 just as you would any other networked printer. The DTC550 is fully compatible with most ID card issuance software including Fargo Asure ID® Photo ID software. Plus, Fargo can provide a software development kit that will help you integrate the DTC550 into other applications such as security systems and Human Resources databases.
