Fargo DTC 4500 ID Printer

The Fargo DTC 4500 plastic card printer provides all the security of HID with all the reliability of Fargo for sharp, professional looking, high quality, completely secure ID cards and photo ID badges - easy and quick. With a modest footprint, and an optional single-side input/output hopper, its minimum size was designed for maximum flexibility. And with long-lasting, spool-loading supplies, a SmartScreen graphical display, and an easy, intuitive set up, the DTC 4500 was designed and built for organizations that need a higher level of security and performance without the higher levels of capital investment and training time. The DTC 4500 can be easily integrated into existing IT networks and can be used for both centralized or remote card printing. Our standard 200 dual-input card hopper allows you immediate access to two different card stocks for smooth operation.
