Product Overview
Designed for medium-sized businesses, schools and local government institutions seeking versatility in a convenient, professional and secure printer/encoder system, the HID® FARGO® DTC4250e is ideal for flexible, easy and reliable color printing of loyalty and photo ID cards.

With its small footprint, an optional, same-side input/output hopper and an optional Wi-Fi® accessory that allows you to print anytime and anywhere. The card printer is also fully compatible with Asure ID® Card Personalization Software for creating custom credentials and Color Assist™ software that can help you match spot colors, ensuring accurate reproduction of such complex graphics as company logos or employee photos.

  • 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 — GreenCircle® Certified for efficient energy consumption and eco-friendly (ECO) refill ribbons
