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 – ENERGY STAR® certified for efficient energy consumption and eco-friendly (ECO) refill ribbons.

* Indicates the ribbon type and the number of ribbon panels printed where Y=yellow, M=magenta, C=cyan, K=resin black, O=overlay, B=dye sublimation black.
** Print speed indicates an approximate print speed and is measured from the time a card drops into the output hopper to the time the next card drops into the output hopper. Print speeds do not include encoding time or the time needed for the PC to process the image. Process time is dependent on the size of the file, the CPU, amount of RAM and the amount of available resources at the time of the print.
