Fargo C50 51701 Details

The Fargo C50 Single-Sided ID System w/ Asure ID Solo is designed to be simple to use, and will have you printing ID cards in mintues! This affordable, reliable printer is easy to maintain with all-in-one printer ribbon and card cleaning cartridges, and is great for small to medium sized ID applications like employee badges, student Ids, and access control cards. Best of all, everything you need to start printing cards, including a color ribbon, cards, ID software, and a digital camera are included!

Fargo C50 Single-Sided Printer

  • Go anywhere!
    The compact design allows the Fargo C50 Single-Sided System to easily accommodate any desktop.

  • Operate and maintain your printer with ease
    The C50 Single-Sided 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. Additionaly, this printer reduces waste and saves money by reusing temporary ID cards with the built-in erase and rewrite function.

  • Access to technology your application requires
    The Fargo C50 System produces ID cards using dye-sublimation printing for vivid color and accurate images and thermal printing for sharp black text and readable barcodes. It features inline card printing technology with one connection using the standard USB connection. Plus, the Fargo 51701 can print on 9 mil to 40 mil thick cards, allowing it to meet your organizations specific needs.

  • Printer Ribbon Choices
    The C50 Single-Sided System works with either the standard EZ ribbons or the optional ECO ribbons. The EZ ribbons are an all-in-one printer ribbon and cleaning cartridge and have a disposable cartridge for easy loading. The ECO ribbons are not only eco-friendly but also an economical choice. Because you only replace the ribbon and reuse the cartridge, there is less waste and the cost is lowered.
