Fargo C50 overview

  • 1Description

Designed to be easy-to-use, the Fargo C50 is ideal for businesses, schools, and government agencies. This single-sided USB printer can reliably print full-color employee ID, loyalty, payment, or membership cards. It utilizes dye sublimation and resin thermal transfer processes to quickly create 300 dpi resolution prints. It is capable of printing at a rate of 7 seconds per card in black and white and at 24 seconds per card in full color with an overlay panel.

With a sleek, smart design, the printer requires virtually no maintenance and can easily fit into the smallest offices settings. It works well with CR-80 and CR-79 adhesive back card sizes and can print edge-to-edge. It can hold up to 50 cards (30 mil thick) in the input hopper and 30 cards (30 mil thick) in the output hopper. The printer features a USB 2.0 interface for connecting it to a computer. It is also compatible with Asure ID card personalization software and EasyLobby Secure Visitor Management software (both available separately).
