Fargo DTC4250e ID Card Printer
The Fargo DTC4250e Card Printer is a professional-grade printer/encoder that provides flexible, easy, reliable color printing and encoding of technology cards. It is designed for small to medium size businesses.

One of the key features of the DTC4250 is the ability to add modules as you need. For instance, you can add Wi-Fi to allow you to print anywhere, anytime. You can choose from two types of ribbons: the all-in-one ribbon cassette (EZ ribbons) or the more economical and eco-friendly refill ribbon (ECO ribbons). ?If you need to encode contact or contactless smart cards, an optional iCLASS SE encoder is available. If you need to perform dual-sided card printing, a module is available that enables that. ?Additional options same-side, input/output card hopper and movable SmartScreen graphical display allows the printer to fit into tight spaces. ? Dual-input card hopper holds 200 cards for higher capacity printing and encoding.

Highly versatile – Powerful printing in a modular, scalable design that simplifies equipment upgrades and migration to higher levels of security. ?

End-to-End Control, Flexibility and Security – The optional iCLASS SE® encoder (part of the iCLASS SE open encoder platform) can be fully integrated into your printer, allowing you to create, encode (read/write) and manage your secure credentials from start-to-finish. Design personalized ID badges locally and then program them to work with your current physical access control system (PACS), streamlining your ordering, inventory management, and issuance processes. ?

Easy-to-use – Efficient set-up, loading and printing with all-in-one print ribbon and card cleaning cartridge (EZ), and SmartScreen™ graphical display. ?

Enhanced protection – Standard printer password protection and fluorescent panel printing provide a cost-effective and dynamic means of increasing card security. ?

Earth friendly – ENERGY STAR® certified for efficient energy consumption and eco-friendly (ECO) refill ribbons.
