Fargo DTC1250e 50600 Details

If you need quality ID cards fast, the Fargo DTC1250e ID Card System is the fastest printer in its class! Designed to print everything from student IDs and employee badges to access control cards. Not only is this printer easy-to-use, and reliable, it also offers increased security, and optional Wi-Fi for added convenience. This printer is the perfect printing and encoding solution for small to medium sized ID applications.

  • Go anywhere!
    The compact design allows the DTC1250e ID System to easily accommodate any desktop.
  • Operate and maintain your printer with ease
    The Fargo DTC1250e System 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 DTC1250e features a built-in erase and rewrite function to help reduce the waste of short-lived, temporary ID cards, such as visitor badges.

  • ECO & EZ ribbons
    ECO ribbons are environmentally friendly ribbons that are optional. They feature a reusable cartridge, so you only throw away the ribbon when it is expired. The ECO ribbons are also budget friendly because you are only replacing the ribbon. The EZ ribbons come standard, and are easy-to-use with a disposable ribbon cartridge that makes replacing the ribbon a breeze.
  • Access the technology your application requires
    The DTC1250e kit 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 DTC1250e ID System can print on 9 mil to 40 mil thick cards, allowing it to easily accommodate sophisticated access control badges and smart cards.

  • QR code printing
    Quick Response Code or QR code printing is fully supported by the DTC1250e. The data encrypted image is printed on the card allowing smart phones to quickly scan the image and receive information about your organization's or business' website! Note: You will also need ID card software that is capable of QR code printing, such as Asure ID Express, in order to print QR codes.

  • AES-256 data decryption
    The DC1250e supports AES-256 data decryption for increased security and data protection.

  • Backed by the best warranty around
    To ensure you get maximum value from the investment in your card printer, the Fargo 50600 DTC1250e is backed by a 3-year printer and printhead warranty, including one no-questions-asked printhead replacement.
