Simple to operate and virtually maintenance-free, the Fargo 54102 DTC400e dual-sided ID card printer features a modular design that scales easily as your future card personalization needs expand. 

  • Operate and maintain your printer with ease
    The Fargo DTC400e dual-sided card printer offers easy-to-use features and hassle-free supplies that even the non-technical user can appreciate. An LCD control panel lets you know the status of your printing process with easy-to-follow message prompts and commands, while an all-in-one cartridge combines the ribbon and cleaning roller into a single, convenient assembly. The Fargo DTC400e dual-sided printer will even alert you if you haven't loaded the ribbon properly.
  • Print on a variety of materials
    Print superb results on a variety of card types and materials. The DTC400e dual-sided printer features color printing enhancements that produce true-to-life photos, and sharp text and images. Plus, you can enjoy these great results on a wide range of card materials, including thin cards, rewritable cards, holographic foil cards, and technology cards.
  • Access additional features through the Fargo Workbench
    The DTC400e 54102 printer features the exclusive Fargo Workbench printer utility, a printer security, diagnostics, and firmware upgrades tool. This allows you to:
    • Add password-controlled access
    • Use a library of card samples
    • Gain access to key printer and ribbon information (e.g., printer serial number, listing of installed options, ribbon type, ribbon amount used, etc.)
    • Run various troubleshooting and diagnostics tools and more!

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.
