Fargo DTC1000 Single-Sided Printer Details

The Fargo 47000 DTC1000 single-sided ID card printer is designed to print everything from student IDs and employee badges to access control cards. It is a reliable, convenient, and easy-to-use printing and encoding solution for small to medium sized ID applications.

  • Go anywhere!
    The compact design allows the Fargo DTC1000 single-sided card printer to easily accommodate any desktop.
  • Operate and maintain your printer with ease
    The Fargo DTC1000 single-sided printer offers an intuitive interface for ease of use straight from the box. Its color-changing status buttons help you to easily identify the status of the printer, while a convenient all-in-one print ribbon and cleaning cartridge makes maintenance a breeze. Additionally, the Fargo DTC1000 47000 printer features a built-in erase and rewrite function to help reduce the waste of short-lived, temporary ID cards, such as visitor badges.
  • Access the technology your application requires
    The DTC1000 single-sided 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. It has the industry's first inline card printing and technology card encoding with one connection using the standard USB connection or optional Ethernet connectivity. Plus, the DTC1000 single-sided printer can print on 9 mil to 40 mil thick cards, allowing it to easily accommodate sophisticated access control badges and smart cards.

Customize your printer to your needs with:

  • Ethernet - Optional
    To allow remote printer sharing by many users on a network, the Fargo 47000 can be equipped with Ethernet connectivity with an internal print server. The DTC1000 is not field upgradable to Ethernet. The Ethernet option must be added at the time of printer purchase. (Upgrade to Ethernet in the Options tab.)
  • Card Encoding - Optional
    The Fargo 47000 offers several encoding options, including magnetic stripe, contact or contactless smart card, and proximity card encoding. You can upgrade anytime to mag stripe encoding; smart card or prox card encoding must be added as the time of printer purchase. (Encoding options are no longer available on the DTC1000 printer. See the DTC1250e printer for encoding options.)
  • Extended warranty and printer loaner plans - Optional
    ID Zone offers extended warranty plans with satisfaction-guaranteed service handled by our in-house, knowledgeable technical support team. Our extended warranty plans include support via a toll-free number or live chat, total parts replacement plus labor, and fast turn-around on printer repairs. In the event your printer needs to be sent to us for repair, our loaner plans help ensure your card printing can continue. With printer loaner coverage, we'll send you a loaner printer to use while yours is in for repair. (Select an extended warranty with or without loaner coverage in the Options tab.)

  • Card printer training - Optional
    A training session with our in-house Technical Support team will get your new Fargo DTC1000 card printer up and running in no time. Your training will be tailored around your specific printer and the specific topics you would like assistance with. A typical printer training session may cover topics such as:
    • Card printer installation assistance
    • A review of the printer's user interface
    • How to load the ribbon and cards
    • Special printer features
    (Add training to your printer order in the Options tab.)

      Comments aboutFargo DTC1000 Single-Sided Printer:

      I have been using this printer for several month now. After initial tweaking it prints everything perfectly and does not use much space on my desk. The Print Quality is good. Not the best and I have not managed to print to the edge completely (a little white space is always left 1/2mm or so) but that does not matter for my company's ID cards.
      I have had the C30e before but it broke so I replaced it. The old software would not work with Windows 7 so I am using Photoshop now. Much better and IDs are not trapped inside a database. Of course this method is not good if you need to print a huge amount of different cards in batch. I am very satisfied with my purchase.

        Comments aboutFargo DTC1000 Single-Sided Printer:

        This is a great printer. It is absolutely a huge step from the Persona by Fargo C30e. It is quieter, sleeker, better cartridge compartment. Better feed, better card tray.

        Only thing that I don't like about it is sometimes the first or second card kicks out of the receptical. My C30 never did that. Almost like they made it more shallow. Still not a big deal.

        All in all this is a solid printer for the money. Absolutely cheapest on the ribbon. About $45 for 250 hits is insanely cheap. Look at the other brands. You get half the hits for more money.

        I'll also mention that HID support is excellent. So is IDZONE's support. Their sales reps are extremely knowledgeable. Their tech support down in Miami is top knotch. All in all, if you have a problem they've already heard of it five times and fixed it.

        You will not be dissapointed with this purchase.

        This is a replacement printer for our MagiCard Opera unit we had for two years. The Fargo printer is much easier to setup and has been flawless in use; Opera unit would seem to 'disappear' from the printers folder requiring much work to get it back online. The Fargo unit prints faster, and is handier as it has a card reservoir for holding a 100 card instead of feeding individual cards.

        Cannot beat this machine for the price. Despite the print quality statement, that's only in comparison to the dinosaur printer it replaces but which cost 3x as much when new. We only use it for access/ID cards for employees so I can't comment on it's durability in high volume situations. Print cartridge churns out more cards per roll than most.
