With the FARGO DTC4500e Card Printer and Encoder, you get professional quality, full-color credentials. Designed for medium-to-large sized organizations, schools, and government institutions looking for reliable, long-term card printing and encoding solutions. The professional-grade DTC4500e plastic card printer and encoder can withstand the daily demands of high-volume card printing. Additional security features – such as password protection and data decryption, locking dual-card hoppers for managing different card stocks, and optional holographic or fluorescent (UV) overlaminates that dramatically increase card durability – also make this the ideal choice for organizations in need of advanced card protection and performance.

The DTC4500e features a modular design empowering you to add, at any time new functionality as the needs of your organization evolve. For the production of highly-secure cards that resist forgery and feature increased durability, select either single- or dual-sided holographic image lamination, or go with an embedded iCLASS SE encoder to streamline the creation, encoding, and management of your physical access smart cards from start-to-finish.  Also available, the Wi-Fi accessory enables you to print cards anytime and anywhere, over any secured wireless network and with EntraPASS Access Control Software.

The versatility of the DTC4500e is unsurpassed. Driven by an extremely robust and reliable print engine, this high-volume printer delivers speed, power and versatility rolled into one. High-capacity ribbons enable the DTC4500e to print twice as many full-color cards as most printers before the ribbon has to be changed, providing continuous high-quality card printing and encoding.
