Fargo HDP5600 600 DPI Dual Sided ID Card Printer Description

Dual-Sided has always offered efficiency and affordability when it comes to ID card printing. Now, with the HDP5600 Dual-Sided printer it offers crisp HD images and text in full 600 dpi.

Excellence in Quality Imagery

Ideal for organizations that need high definition ID cards, the Fargo HDP5600 and its 600 dpi printing options are difficult to beat. The outcome is superior text and imagery that pops with vibrant colors allowing for quick and easy recognition. The HDP5600 is an ideal fit for government agencies, academic institutions, large corporations and healthcare facilities  in need of re-transfer technology for mass use. Moreover, it offers up to 16.7 million colors and 256 shades per pixel.

Ready for Action

With the Fargo HDP5600, you’ll have a printhead that is guaranteed for life. Because the printhead never comes into contact with the card surface, the risk of collecting debris or inflicting damage on itself is minimized. This means less downtime and more productivity with a printer you can trust. The HDP5600 offers HDP Dye-Sublimation and Resin Thermal Transfer printing.

Elite Printing Speeds

The HDP5600 brings enhanced imagery without sacrificing speed. This printer can print up to 150 cards per hour (YMC with transfer) and 90 cards per hour (YMCKK with transfer.)

Top-Notch Security

With the HDP5600, you’ll have a host of security options to choose from. This includes the ability to support smart card and magnetic strip technologies as well as HID Prox readers. Throw in the capacity to add holographic laminates and you’ll have top-notch security at your fingertips. Be sure to identify the write security options for your organization and the HDP5600 stands ready to make it happen.

Professional Select Series

With the Fargo HDP5600, you’ll have the first printer to be included within HID Global’s new Professional Select Series. This series joins the rest of Fargo’s portfolio that includes standard, professional, financial and industrial series printers.
