The Fargo 55000 DTC4500e single-sided ID card printer delivers high-volume performance with maximum security. Featuring ribbon options for varying needs, dual input hoppers, and built-in password protection, the Fargo 55000 DTC4500e single-sided card printer is designed for organizations that require robust, high-volume printing on a daily basis.

Product Features

  • Fast Print Speeds

Need cards in a jiffy? No problem! The Fargo DTC4500e single-sided card printer prints 225 full color single-sided cards per hour and 150 full color dual-sided cards per hour – 50% faster than its predecessor.

  • Intuitive User Interface

The DTC4500e single-sided 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 DTC4500e 55000 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 Fargo 55000 features a built-in erase and rewrite function that is ideal for temporary ID cards such as visitor badges.

  • Ribbon Options for Varying Needs

Ribbons options are available depending on the needs of the organization. The EZ ribbon offers the easy-to-use disposable cartridge which is simple to load and replace. The ECO ribbon is more economical and eco-friendly. It is a refill ribbon which is to be placed into a refillable ribbon cartridge, eliminating the need to throw the plastic cartridge away with each ribbon change.

  • Standard Ethernet Connectivity with Optional WiFi

Featuring high speed USB and Ethernet ports, the Fargo 55000 can easily integrate anywhere you need it. With the built-in internal print server you can install the Fargo 55000 on your existing network (LAN) allowing remote access printing for high-volume card issuance without having the printer directly connected to your computer. For mobile printing, the printer can optionally be wifi-enabled with an HID wireless accessory.

  • Supports QR Code Printing

This printer fully supports QR or Quick Response Codes, which are codes that are data encrypted specifically for smart phones. The code is an image that is printed on the card. QR codes are a great way to drive traffic to your business’ or organization’s website! NOTE: To print QR codes, you will need ID card software that is also capable of QR code printing, such as CardPresso.

  • Enhanced Printer and Card Security

The Fargo 55000 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. To further support the integrity of your card printing program, the Fargo 55000 offers optional locking card hoppers.

  • Optional Dual-Sided Printing (Field-Upgradeable)

The Fargo 55000 can also easily be upgraded in the field to dual-sided printing. Duplex printing allows for more space for additional card holder information or security features.

  • Optional Encoding

The Fargo 55000 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 Fargo 55000 offers custom holographic overlaminates. Note: Lamination requires dual-sided printing.

    Hey the printer was easy to setup. The product was cost effective and wireless printing is cool. I had one of these printers before and it lasted many years, hopefully this one will hold up also.
