Fargo 47600 DTC1000 Printer Details

The Fargo DTC1000 single-sided ID system 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. The Fargo DTC1000 single-sided ID card system includes everything you need to start printing cards, including a color ribbon, cards, ID software, and a webcam.

Fargo DTC1000 Single-Sided Printer

  • 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 make maintenance a breeze. Additionally, the Fargo DTC1000 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 to technology your application requires
    The DTC1000 single-sided printer produces ID cards using dye-sublimation printing for vivid color and accurate images and thermal 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:

  • Dual-sided printing - Optional
    Please see the Fargo DTC1000 Dual-Sided ID Card System for duplex printing capability.

  • Ethernet - Optional
    To allow remote printer sharing by many users on a network, the Fargo DTC1000 can be equipped with Ethernet connectivity with an internal print server. The DTC1000 is not field upgradeable to Ethernet. The Ethernet option must be added at the time of printer purchase. 

  • Card encoding - Optional
    The Fargo DTC1000 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 at the time of printer purchase. 

  • 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.

With printer loaner coverage, we'll send you a loaner printer to use while yours is in for repair.
