Fargo DTC4500e 55100 Details

Backed by a three-year warranty, the Fargo 55100 DTC4500e dual-sided ID card printer features ribbon options, dual input hoppers, and built-in password protection. Offering high-volume performance and maximum security, the Fargo 55100 DTC4500e dual-sided card printer is designed for organizations that require robust, high-volume printing on an everyday basis.

  • Operate and maintain your printer with ease
    The Fargo DTC4500e dual-sided card printer is ideal for high volume print runs where quality and security are most important. Boasting 50% faster print speeds than its predecessor, the Fargo DTC4500e dual-sided printer prints 225 full color dual-sided cards per hour and 150 full color dual-sided cards per hour.

    Two ribbon options are available to suit varying needs: (1) The EZ ribbon offers the easy-to-use disposable cartridge which is simple to load and replace and (2) The ECO ribbon is more economical and eco-friendly. It is a refill ribbon which is to be placed into a refillable ribbon cartridge, eliminating the need to throw the plastic cartridge away with each ribbon change.
  • Access the technology your application requires
    The Fargo DTC4500e 55100 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. QR codes can be passed through the printer as a complete image and then printed to the card. Plus, the DTC4500e can print on 9 mil to 40 mil thick cards, allowing it to easily accommodate sophisticated access control badges and smart cards.
  • Print where you want
    The DTC4500e dual-sided printer can easily integrate anywhere you need it with its high speed USB and Ethernet ports. The built-in internal print server allows you to install the DTC4500e dual-sided printer on your existing network (LAN) for remote access printing and high-volume card issuance without having the printer directly connected to your computer.
  • Create secure ID cards
    The DTC4500e dual-sided printer is designed to migrate from lower to higher security levels, offering built-in printer password protection and optional fluorescing ribbons for Ultra-Violet or UV printing. If higher levels of security are needed, it offers additional field-upgradable options for increased security and printer output.

  • Backed by the best warranty around
    To ensure you get maximum value from the investment in your card printer, the Fargo 55100 DTC4500e is backed by a 3-year printer and printhead warranty, including one no-questions-asked printhead replacement, plus 1 year of loaner printer coverage to keep your card printing program operational.

Customize your printer to your needs with :

  • Wifi - Optional
    To allow remote printer sharing by many users on a network, the Fargo 55100 offers standard Ethernet connectivity with an internal print server. For mobile printing, the printer can optionally be wifi-enabled with an HID wireless accessory.(Upgrade to WiFi in the Options tab.)
  • Same-side input/output hopper - Optional (upgrade any time)
    If workspace is limited, the optional same-side input/output hopper is a must. (Upgrade to the same-side hopper in the Options tab.)
  • Card encoding – Optional
    The Fargo 55100 offers field-upgradable modules for encoding data for magnetic stripe, proximity, contact and/or contactless technology cards such as iCLASS for access control and other applications. (Upgrade to encoding in the Options tab.)
  • Single- or dual-sided lamination – Optional
    For additional security, add lamination to your cards to create tamper-proof, secure cards resistant to forgery. The high-speed dual-sided simultaneous lamination saves valuable time. The Fargo 55100 offers custom holographic overlaminates for even more secure cards. Note: If lamination is not purchased at the time of printer purchase, the lamination module must be installed by our trained technicians. Lamination requires dual-sided printing. View the DTC4500e Duplex Printer with dual-sided Lamination or the DTC4500e Duplex Printer with Dual-Sided Lamination.
  • 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 DTC4500e 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.)
