Fargo announces new range of direct-to-card printers

December 2000 Access Control & Identity Management

Fargo Electronics recently released a new robust, high-volume, high-speed direct-to-card (DTC) printers, the DTC700 series.

The DTC700 series features the DTC710 (single-sided) and the DTC720 (dual-sided) printers. They are designed for users in a wide variety of applications who need a high-volume, high-speed printer for colour or monochrome cards. Typical applications include insurance cards, service bureaus, casinos, colleges and universities, events, transit passes, loyalty cards and phone cards.

High-volume production was an integral part of the DTC700 series' design. The printers are able to print 138 cards per hour for single-sided colour and 720 cards per hour for single-sided monochrome printing. Also notable is the standard 250-card input hopper and the optional card output stacker.

Cards can be added to the large capacity input hopper without stopping production, so no 'downtime' is required to refill the hopper. The optional 250-card output stacker stacks the cards first-in first-out so batch prints are kept in perfect order. This is a beneficial feature as the high-capacity print ribbon of the DTC700 series prints up to 700 cards in colour and up to 3000 cards in monochrome.

In addition, the DTC 700 series is able to print on oversized cards (up to 2,62" width by 3,87" length, known as CR-100 cards) with a variety of card thicknesses. Oversized cards are utilized in applications by airports, event planning and management etc.

A 4-line LCD display alerts users to printer status, menus, errors, diagnostics and even provides online help. Softkey controls provide button functions that are given on the LCD and change according to the current printer function. The adjustable card thickness knob and input guide allow the user flexibility in card size usage.
