Fargo DTC1250e Overview

Designed for small-to-medium businesses, the DTC1250e Single-Sided ID Card USB Printer from Fargo provides maximum efficiency in a sleek, user-friendly design. This printer utilizes dye sublimation resin thermal transfer processes to quickly create 300 dpi resolution prints. It works well with CR-80 and CR-79 adhesive back card sizes and can print edge-to-edge. It also supports HID iCLASS SE, iCLASS, MIFARE/DESFire, and HID PROX (Omnikey Cardman 5127) encoding. The printer comes with an internal print server for secure printing.

The printer is capable of printing at a rate of 6 seconds per card in black and white and at 24 seconds per card in full color with two black resin panels. It can hold up to 100 cards (30 mil thick) in the input hopper and 30 cards (30 mil thick) in the output hopper. The integrated iCLASS SE encoder enables your printer to be compatible with the HID secure identity systems. It includes the ability to program the HID Physical Access Control System (PACS) data in the printer. This encoder provides an additional layer of security to your identity program by allowing for processing of Secure Identity Object (SIO) data, and enabling the printer to become a Trusted Identity Platform (TIP) endpoint. The printer also has a USB 2.0 as well as an Ethernet interface for connecting to a computer.
