Fargo DTC1000 47020 Description

From student IDs or employee badges to membership and access control cards the Fargo 47020 single-sided DTC1000 printer with Ethernet is designed to offer reliable, convenient, and easy-to-use printing and encoding solutions for small to medium sized ID applications.

Product Features

  • Compact design
    The small footprint allows the Fargo 47020 single-sided printer with Ethernet to easily accommodate any desktop configuration.

  • Direct-to-card printing with built-in erase and rewrite
    The Fargo 47020 printer with Ethernet produces ID cards using dye-sublimation printing for vivid color and accurate images and thermal transfer or resin thermal transfer for sharp black text and barcodes. In addition, the Fargo 47020 printer features a built-in erase and rewrite function that is ideal for temporary ID cards such as visitor badges.

  • All-in-one print ribbon and cleaning cartridge
    The all-in-one print ribbon and cleaning cartridge offers a convenient and simplified loading process making maintenance a breeze.

  • Intuitive user-interface
    The intuitive user-interface provides color-changing status buttons for system status notifications to easily identify the status of the printer.

  • Printing on various card thicknesses
    To accommodate sophisticated access control badges and smart cards the Fargo 47020 printer allows printing cards as thin as 9 mil and up to 40 mil thick.

  • Printing and encoding via one connection
    The Fargo 47020 features the industry's first inline card printing and technology card encoding with one connection using the standard USB or Ethernet connection.

  • Ethernet connectivity
    The Fargo 47020 features Ethernet connectivity with an internal print server, which allows for remote printer sharing by many users on a network.

  • Optional dual-sided printing (factory ordered)
    Does your application require printing on both sides of the card? No problem, the DTC1000 is available as a single- or dual-sided ID printer. Utilizing dual-sided printing allows for more space on your ID card for your company logo, additional cardholder information or security features.
