Fargo Persona C30e Features



Fargo Assure ID Software Features
  • Fargo Persona C30e Features Interactive Demo (opens in new window)


  • 1 - The optional dual-sided printing provides higher card security for your organization. Dual-sided printing gives you a larger printing area of your ID cards. You can put larger photos and additional information on the front, bar codes and digitized signatures on the back. Dual-sided printing makes ID cards harder to counterfeit.

    2 - Optional card encoding feature. You can add the optional card encoding feature module that will encode data on the magnetic stripe. This encoded information gives employee access to certain departments or area of a facility. This makes you have greater access control.

    3 - The Persona C30e might be a simple printer, but it has some great color features. You can print some great ID cards. It prints color ID badges with sharp and clear images.

    4 - Printer ribbons are expensive, and you have to take good care of them to maintain print quality. The Integrated card cleaning roller automatically removes any damaging dust or debris from each card — before it is sent to be printed. This is a critical step as it protects your materials.

    5 - Load ribbons in a snap with the Persona C30. No more hassling with the handling of printer supplies. The easy-loading ribbon cartridge integrates the printer ribbon and the card-cleaning roller into one disposable unit. Just slide in the cartridge, close the door and you’re done changing the ribbon. You don't have to deal with feeding or tearing ribbon rolls or fumbling with separate cleaning rollers.

    Simplicity

    The main benefit of the Persona C30e is ease of use. Anyone in your organization can quickly learn how to use it in minutes. It is the most simple ID card printer in the market.


    Easy Maintenance

    The Persona C30e is simple to maintain. The all in one printer cartridge makes it easy to clean. To remove the current cartridge, open the front panel and replace it with the new cartridge. You are also changing the card cleaning roller as it is integrated into the ribbon cartridge.


    Versatility

    The Persona C30e can perform a number of features that its rivals can’t perform. It can print and encode employee photo ID access cards in color, and print ID cards in black and white. This gives it an edge over its rivals.


    More Space.

    With Dual Sided printing, you have more space to add information on the card. On the front of the card, you can add a picture and a digital signature, while on the back of the card, you can add more information and a magnetic stripe.


    Cost Effective.

    You don't have to waste or throw out cards after one use anymore. You can rewrite visitor cards as it is a cost reducing feature. The Persona C30e has the capability to erase the data with a heating element, and then rewrite new data on the card. This feature will save you a lot of money.

    Neil Hi, does the ribbons for the single sided printer also work on the dual sided model?
