The unbelievably easy and secure way to print and encode plastic ID cards.When it comes to printing and encoding plastic ID cards, nothing is easier or more secure than the Fargo DTC400.
There's no easier way to increase your employees' security and decrease your organization's vulnerability to loss than by issuing photo ID cards. Fargo’s next-generation DTC400 Direct-to-Card Printer/Encoder is specifically designed to make issuing IDs and securing your organization go smoothly. It's simple to operate and virtually maintenance-free. Plus, it can scale easily as your needs expand. When you add in Fargo's Print Security Suite, the DTC400 is not only the easiest card identity system in its class, it's also the most secure.
Never hassle with ribbons or card cleaning again.
The DTC400’s all-in-one print ribbon/card cleaning system – the SmartLoad™ Ribbon Cartridge – installs in one easy step. A SmartClean™ Roller is integrated into every cartridge, so there’s no need to deal with a separate card cleaning mechanism.
Never again wonder what your printer is trying to tell you.
Unlike other card printers that communicate with confusing, blinking LED lights, the DTC400 communicates via its SmartScreen™ LCD Control Panel. This clear display offers easy-to-understand prompts and commands, so you’ll always know the status of print jobs.
Think your needs might change? Never fear, the DTC400 adapts easily.
