The Fargo 93623 HDP5600 built on five generations of proven retransfer technology, and supported by a comprehensive suite of integration tools, the affordable FARGO® HDP5600 Printer/Encoder produces High Definition IDs and cards with the highest image quality available. The HDP5600 is ideal for Government agencies, healthcare facilities, businesses and universities, who are looking for true “over the edge” printing capability. The HDP5600 with it’s convenient modularity allow it to be easily upgraded to meet expanded printing, lamination, or encoding requirements.
HDP5600 Standard Features:
This Fargo 93623 HDP5600 ID card printer utilizes a reverse image transfer (“over the edge”) printing process to produce vibrant, high definition, full color cards. All Fargo HDP5600 card printers can connect via USB or Ethernet (networked), and include a lifetime warranty on the printhead (three years for all other components with one year of free loaner coverage **USA only).
Reverse Image Transfer (Re-Transfer) Card Printing Technology
This ID card printer utilizes “Re-Transfer” printing technology, which diffuses ink (in the form of a ribbon) to a dye receptive film known as a “transfer film”. Once all necessary colors have been applied to the transfer film, it is then fused to a blank PVC or Composite card material. This two-step printing process allows for a high definition “over the edge” printed card. Since the transfer process is not limited by a fixed printhead, but rather utilizes the flexible transfer film material, the re-transfer method is ideal for highly detailed imagery (up to 600dots/in), which can be applied to uneven surfaces such as ID cards with embedded electronic chips (smart cards). Along with advanced printing definition and overall card coverage, the lifespan of a re-transfer printhead is dramatically increased by the lack of contact with the card substrate.
This ID card printer prints with a resolution of 600 dpi (dots per inch) or 23.6 dpm (dots per millimeter).
Single Sided ID Card Printing
This ID card printer can print on only one side of a PVC or Composite card.
Single Sided Lamination
This ID card printer incudes a single sided lamination module, which allows you to apply a variety of different laminates (clear, generic holographic, custom holographic, etc.) to only one side of the card.
Low Frequency (125khz) Reader (HID Omnikey 5125)
This ID card printer includes a Low Frequency Contactless Chip Reader allowing you to read a variety of low frequency contactless chip technologies.
Available in 600 dpi (23.6 dots/mm) or 300 dpi (11.8 dots/mm)
Up to 16.7 million / 256 shades per pixel
