Nisca PR-C201 Details

If you want accurate image quality, reliability, and high volume throughput, turn to the Nisca PR-C201 dual-sided ID system. The PR-C201 ID system offers fast print speeds at up to 160 cards per hour, vivid print quality with retransfer printing technology, and built-in Ethernet connectivity for operating your card printing program on a network. The Nisca PR-C201 dual-sided card system includes everything you need to start printing cards, including a color ribbon, cards, ID software, and a webcam.

PR-C201 ID Card Printer

  • Achieve high quality results with retransfer printing technology
    The Nisca PR-C201 dual-sided printer used reverse-transfer printing technology to provide true over-the-edge printing, high quality images, and enhanced wear protection. This technology is ideal for printing on cards with uneven surfaces, such as technology cards with embedded electronics.

  • Operate and maintain your printer with ease
    The PR-C201 is easy to set-up and use, plus it features a small footprint. The printer's LCD display provides printer status messages and instructions. A quick-change ribbon cassette makes reloading supplies and cleaning the internal print path easy and virtually maintenance-free!

  • Print quality cards - fest!
    The Nisca PR-C201 offers a high speed, 600 dpi, 24-bit color, and a print speed of up to 160 cards/hour! To support this demand, the printer has large input and output hoppers that hold 250 cards each.

  • Print where you want
    With the Nisca PR-C201's built-in Ethernet connectivity, you can operate your card printing and encoding application safely and seamlessly over your network. It is also fitted with USB connectivity.

  • Get lifetime printhead coverage
    The PR-C201 includes a two-year manufacturer's warranty on the printer and a lifetime warranty on the printhead.

Customize your printer to your needs with:

  • Card encoding - Optional
    The PR-C201 can be optionally equipped to handle your encoding needs, whether you needs to encode a magnetic stripe or a smart card. (Add this feature to your printer within the Options tab.)

  • Extended warranty and 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 use 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 Nisca PR-C201 card system up and running in no time.
