What's Included

If your organization needs to support a card issuance program that requires fast, high-volume card production along with enhanced security, then the Fargo DTC1500 Single-sided ID Card System is for you. By selecting a system instead of a stand-alone card printer, you?ll receive all the essential supplies needed to begin managing and issuing credential cards. This Fargo DTC1500 System is anchored around the DTC1500 Single-sided ID Card Printer - a solution capable of producing large runs at one of the lowest cost-per-card values in the market. The DTC1500 Single-side System includes a FREE 30-day subscription of CloudBadging ID Card Software, a high-capacity YMCKO ribbon, 500 blank PVC cards, and the 2.0 Megapixel Credential Cam camera.

DTC1500 Single-Sided Printer

Turn on high-volume output with the drop of a ribbon Enable high-volume printing without upgrading to expensive models that don?t get used to their full potential. The speedy DTC1500 works with supplies meant for large runs, which means production doesn?t need to stop to swap in new ribbons. A fast print speed helps spike productivity - the DTC1500 by Fargo creates 225 single-sided cards per hour!

Create custom visual card security
The single-sided DTC1500 applies a security watermark (a transparent image printed over card credentials) that turns a standard ID card into a counterfeit-resistant badge - no special overlaminates, cards or equipment needed. In addition, enable password protection to authorize printer operators, then rest easy as your DTC1500 scrambles the imprint on the resin panel to eliminate data theft.

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. Plus, thermal resin transfer helps black text and barcodes look crisp and clear.

The DTC1500 is also great at managing visitor badges and temporary ID cards - just use rewritable cards with the printer?s erase and rewrite function.

Comes standard 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. Need additional accessibility? Order Fargo?s WiFi accessory and you can open card issuance to anyone, anytime, from anywhere.

Coverage plans that protect your investment
A three-year manufacturer?s warranty covers printer and printhead repairs. To minimize out-of-pocket costs post-warranty, ID Wholesaler offers TrueSupport coverage plans for your printer.

Optional - encode data and print cards in one pass
With optional inline encoding, you can embed cardholder or company info onto a card, or program cards with access control systems. Encoding is available for magnetic stripes and select contact and contactless smart card technologies.
