Fargo DTC4500 Dual-Sided ID System Details

High-volume performance with maximum security, the Fargo DTC4500 dual-sided system features high capacity ribbon supplies, dual input hoppers, and built-in password protection. It is designed for organizations that require robust, high-volume printing on an everyday basis and are printing information on both sides of a card. Fargo DTC4500 dual-sided card system includes everything you need to start printing cards, include a color ribbon, cards, ID software, and a webcam.

Fargo DTC4500 Dual-Sided Printer

  • Operate and maintain your printer with ease
    The Fargo DTC4500 dual-sided card printer offers an intuitive interface for ease of use straight out of the box. Boasting fast print speeds, the Fargo DTC4500 dual sided printer is ideal for high volume print runs where quality and security are most important. The dual-sided printing capability means that both sides of a card are printed in a single printing process.

  • Access the technology your application requires
    The Fargo DTC4500 49100 printer produces ID cards using dye-sublimation printing for vivid color and accurate images and thermal transfer for sharp black text and barcodes. Plus, the DTC4500 dual-sided printer 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 DTC4500 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 it 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 DTC4500 dual-sided printer is designed to migrate from lower to higher security levels, offering built-in printer password protection and optional fluorescent ribbons for Ultra-Violet or UV printing. If higher levels of security are needed, it offers additional field-upgradeable options for increased security and printer output.

Customize your printer to your needs with:

  • 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 this hopper in Options)

  • Card encoding - Optional (upgrade any time)
    The Fargo 49100 offers field-upgradeable modules for encoding data for magnetic stripe, proximity, contact and/or contactless technology cards such as iClass for access control and other applications. (Add encoding in Options)

  • Single- or dual-sided lamination - Optional (upgrade any time)
    For additional security, add lamination to create tamper-proof, secure cards resistant to forgery. The high-speed dual-sided simultaneous lamination saves valuable time. The Fargo 49100 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 DTC4500 Duplex System with Single-Sided Lamination or the DTC4500 Duplex System 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 while yours is in for repair. (Select an extended warranty with or without loaner coverage in Options)

  • ID card system training - Optional
    A training session with our in-house Technical Support team will get your new Fargo DTC4500 card system up and running in no time.
