Enjoy superior performance – In one pass the Fargo DTC4500e can print, encode, fluorescent print, and laminate security cards–single- or dual-sided–with a very fast print speed using just one USB or Ethernet connection. The standard 200 card input hopper adds additional capacity and makes it ideal for users who need the high volume print runs where quality and security are most important.

The Fargo DTC4500e card printer is field upgradeable, so it can change as your needs change. Add dual sided printing functionality. Add single-or dual sided holographic image lamination for durability and security. Add HID Proximity encoding (125 kHz), iCLASS Contactless encoding (13.56 MHz), or contact chip encoding. Add a same side input/output ID card hopper. As your needs change, the Fargo DTC4500e can change with you.

With a modest footprint, and an optional single-side input/output hopper, its minimum size was designed for maximum flexibility. And with long-lasting, spool-loading supplies, a SmartScreenTM graphical display, and an easy, intuitive set up, the Fargo DTC4500e was designed and built for organizations that need a higher level of security and performance without the higher levels of capital investment and training time. The Fargo DTC4500e can be easily integrated into existing IT networks and can be used for both centralized or remote card printing.
