Fargo DTC1500XE Description
The easy-to-use and dependable Fargo DTC1500XE ID card printer is offered in both single- and dual-sided printing. Ideal for small- to medium-size business, the professional-level card printer features enterprise-worthy credential security, easy add-on upgrades, and is backed by an impressive three-year warranty and three-year loaner coverage .
The DTC1500XE accepts supplies made for large runs like its affordably priced 500 print YMCKO ribbon or its 850 print half-panel color ribbon. You're getting approximately 50% more prints per ribbon, plus one of the lowest cost-per-card breakdowns found in the market.
Watch productivity spike to new heights when you pair high-quantity production with fast print speeds - the DTC1500XE by Fargo creates 225 full color single-sided cards per hour!
Increased Security & Durability
Help safeguard your ID cards with the DTC1500XE security watermarks (a transparent image printed over card credentials). Easily create a custom logo, symbol or text watermark that turns a standard ID card into a counterfeit-resistant badge - no special overlaminates, cards or equipment needed.
Don't forget that card fraud attempts can occur within your building walls, too. To ensure only approved printer operators access your DTC1500XE, enable the password protection on the printer. Data decryption offers a second layer of security; a resin erase feature scrambles resin-printed text on the ribbon, making it impossible for thieves to duplicate.
Detailed printing with built-in rewrite
This 300 dpi direct-to-card printer uses a dye-sublimation printing process. Produce highly-accurate colors and images right onto the card surface. Its thermal resin transfer mechanism fuses black resin straight from the ribbon onto the card, so black text and barcodes look crisp on day one and every day after. In addition, the DTC1500XE printer efficiently manages visitor badges and temporary ID cards. When paired with rewritable cards, a built-in erase and rewrite function allows cards to be reused for future issuance.
Equipped with USB & Ethernet connectivity
Establish a network connection from one or more workstations with either a USB 2.0 or Ethernet interface ' both come standard. Add on Fargo's Wi-Fi Accessory and you can open card issuance to anyone, anytime, from anywhere.
Impressive three-year warranty
Known for its durability, you can trust that the DTC1500XE by Fargo will perform reliably. A three-year manufacturer's warranty covers repairs if maintenance is required. To minimize potential down-time, ID Wholesaler complements your warranty with three years of loaner coverage which will allow you to continue operating and printing ID cards with a temporary printer, while yours is being fixed.
Optional - Upgradeable dual-side printing
It's hard to forecast your card issuance needs, even in the not-so-distant-future. With the DTC1500XE printer, you don't have to. Every printer comes with a built-in dual-sided flipper. If you order a single-sided printer but later discover you need to print on both sides of your cards, an after-purchase upgrade is simple. Insert the included RFID tag into your printer to activate dual-sided printing - it's that easy.
Optional - Laminate cards for higher security and durability
An overlaminate is an effective method to fortify anti-fraud properties, especially if UV or holographic films are employed. The protective layer will also extend the life of your cards. If dual-sided printing is enabled, you may upgrade your DTC1500XE with single-sided lamination.
Optional - Encoding
The Fargo DTC1500XE also features several encoding options enabling magnetic stripe, contact or contactless smart cards, HID iClass cards, and proximity cards.
- Corporate ID
- Membership cards
- Transportation passes
- Government (including driver's license and national ID programs)
