Fargo DTC4500 49100 Description

The Fargo DTC4500 dual-sided printer delivers high-volume performance with maximum security. Featuring high capacity ribbon supplies, dual input hoppers, and built-in password protection, the Fargo DTC4500 dual-sided printer is designed for organizations that require robust, high-volume printing on a daily basis.

Product Features

  • Intuitive user-interface
    The Fargo DTC4500 dual-sided card printer features a user-friendly SmartScreen™ graphical display offering easy setup and printing status notifications.

  • Direct-to-card printing with built-in erase and rewrite
    The Fargo DTC4500 dual-sided card printer 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 DTC4500 dual-sided printer features a built-in erase and rewrite function that is ideal for temporary ID cards such as visitor badges.

  • Standard Ethernet connectivity
    Featuring high speed USB and Ethernet ports, the DTC4500 dual-sided printer can easily integrate anywhere you need it. With the built-in internal print server you can install it on your existing network (LAN) allowing remote access printing for high-volume card issuance without having the printer directly connected to your computer.

  • Enhanced security
    The Fargo DTC4500 49100 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.

  • Optional single-sided printing
    The Fargo DTC4500 49100 printer is also available as a single-sided printer, perfect for applications where limited information can fit on one side of the ID card.

  • Optional same-side input/output hopper (field-upgradeable)
    An optional same-side input/output hopper can help fit the printer into tight workspaces.

  • Optional encoding (field-upgradeable)
    The Fargo 49100 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.

  • Optional single- or dual-sided lamination
    Looking for an additional layer of security? Overlaminates provide tamper-proof, secure cards resistant to forgery. Furthermore, optional high-speed dual-sided simultaneous lamination can save valuable time. For an even higher level of security, the DTC4500 offers custom holographic overlaminates. Note: The lamination module is not field-installable. If it is not purchased at the time of printer purchase, the lamination module must be installed by our trained technicians. Lamination requires dual-sided printing.

  • Optional extended warranty and printer loaner plans
    ID Wholesaler's extended warranty plans include toll-free technical support, live chat support, total parts and labor replacement, and fast turn-around on printer repairs. This satisfaction-guaranteed service is handled in-house by our knowledgeable, factory-trained technical support team.

    Our printer loaner coverage plans provide you with a loaner printer in the event your printer needs to be sent to ID Wholesaler for repair. Printer loaner plans help ensure you won't be without a printer and your card printing can continue uninterrupted.

  • Optional card printer training
    Get your new Fargo DTC4500 card printer up and running in no time with a training session from our in-house Technical Support team. We will tailor your training around your specific printer and your specific needs. A card printer training session may include topics such as:
