High Definition Printers/Encoders - HDP
The only choice
for high-security card applications.
It uses Fargo’s patented High
Definition Printing™ (HDP®)
Sophisticated but not complicated:
HDP 600 sets new standards for user-friendliness
and reliability. That’s why it’s
the most dependable choice for security-conscious
The HDP 600 is the only card printer/encoder
that can consistently and perfectly print,
encode and laminate technology-rich
With High Definition Printing, there’s
never any contact between the printhead
and card. Instead, the HDP 600 prints
images onto the underside of the HDP Film,
which is then fused flush to the card through
heat and pressure.
Embedded electronics like
smart chips and proximity coils cause hard-to-print
ridges and indentations on the surface of
cards. Because the HDP 600 prints on an HDP
Film instead of directly on the card, it prints
consistently over surface irregularities —
without damaging the embedded electronics
or the printhead.
Fargo’s High Definition printer/encoders
can easily print to the edge of a smart chip.
The HDP 600 prints and encodes/ reads up to
three different technologies
(including contact smart cards, contactless
smart cards and proximity cards), plus a magnetic
stripe all within a single card.
The HDP 600 eliminates that worry by letting
you print and encode high-security cards in
It’s Cost effective:
Add lamination or encoding modules to your
HDP 600 as your needs grow instead of having
to purchase a new printer.
HDP Print head has a lifetime warranty
if Fargo Certified Supplies are used.
Display: User-friendly SmartScreen™
LCD tells you what buttons to press,
when to load supplies and keeps you up to
speed on your print job.
RibbonTraq™ bar codes
help the printer/encoder quickly and accurately
calibrate ribbons so your customers don't
have to. RibbonTraq helps conserve valuable
ribbon material and save money on supplies
Dual Card Hopper: lets you
load up to 200 identical cards, or print and
encode two different types of cards simultaneously.
Reject Card Hopper: The HDP
600 automatically routes defective cards into
this handy hopper (available only with lamination
Improves efficiency: High-capacity
ribbons and card hoppers (accommodating 200
cards) are ideal for large or batch print
jobs. Printing operations can run longer,
with fewer interruptions for supplies refills.
Reduced maintenance costs:
A Tape-based Card Cleaning System
removes dust and debris from cards, improving
quality and reducing card waste and ensures
long life of printheads.
It’s Secure: High Definition
Printing technology helps prevent card tampering
and security breaches.
It’s User friendly
It’s compatible: The
HDP 600 easily integrates with existing time
& attendance, access control and other
photo ID applications.
Print Area: Over – the - edge
on CR-80 cards
Accepted Card Types: ABS,
PVC, PET, PETG, proximity, smart and magnetic
stripe cards, optical memory cards
Memory: 8 MB RAM
Interface: USB 1.1 (Optional
Centronics Parallel, IEEE 1284 compliant)
Lower printing costs with
larger ribbon rolls: High-capacity ribbon
rolls with igh numbers of color panels and
extra resin material result in lower per-print
Shorter learning curve with
Fargo printer drivers: Fargo printer/encoder
drivers, LCDs and LEDs provide clear, easy
instruction for new users. Printer/encoder
owners can start printing cards immediately.
