Key Benefits

Modular Design: As organizations grow and threats change, those responsible for asset protection need equipment that can easily adapt to evolving needs.

Our DTC4000 card printer is field upgradeable, so it can adapt to changes you need when you need them. Add dual sided printing functionality. Add magnetic stripe encoding. Add HID Proximity encoding (125 kHz), iCLASS contactless encoding (13.56 MHz), or contact chip encoding. Add Ethernet connectivity. Add a high-capacity ID card hopper.

As your organization grows, the DTC4000 can grow with you.

Easy to place, easy to use: With a small footprint, and an optional same-side input/output hopper, its minimum size was designed for maximum flexibility. And with upgradeable functionality and security, simple replacement of cartridge supplies, movable SmartScreenTM graphical display, and an easy, intuitive set up, the DTC4000 was made for organizations that want a higher level of security without the higher levels of capital investment and training time.

Reliable: We back each of our Direct-to-Card Printer/Encoders with a global 2-year warranty. A 7th generation product from Fargo, each printer now works seamlessly with HID readers and other asset protection modules.

Enhanced security: In addition to sophisticated encoding options, the DTC4000 will print a UV layer for an increased level of physical security on the card. The DTC4000 can also be password protected at the printer so only approved operators can print and encode plastic security cards and badges.
