Fargo HDP8500 Benefits
High Duty Performance
With the new FARGO® HDP8500 Industrial Card Printer/Encoder, HID Global delivers most reliable, high duty performance ID card printer in the industry.
The FARGO HDP8500, featuring HID's High Definition Printing™ (HDP®) technology, is the superior industrial ID printer for extended-run, high throughput credential personalization and issuance. It's especially suited for the high duty cycle requirements of large government ID card programs, laborious service bureau conditions, and demanding university and large enterprise environments.
With the FARGO HDP8500, you'll get a print system loaded with features that ensure reliability, from enhanced card and consumable material handling to air filtration. You'll get a system that performs - it has one of the highest card input capacities in the industry and required minimal operator intervention, saving time and money. And, you'll get a system that's designed for operational and issuance security.
The HDP8500 is enabled within the HID Global Trusted Identity Platform™ (TIP). With its built-in security features from operator PIN number access and multi-locking entry points, to data encryption and resin ribbon data-erase functionality, you'll know your system is secure. Wherever high duty cycle and throughout is required, the FARGO HDP8500 delivers.
Backed by HID Global's 45 years of manufacturing excellence and three-year hardware warranty, it's the ideal solution for unparalleled quality, performance, and security.
High Definition Printing Quality
HID Global pioneered High Definition Printing, also called retransfer print technology, in desktop ID card printers. Retransfer technology works with a wide variety of card materials, giving you greater printing flexibility. And, you'll be able to produce crisp, high definition images on technology cards - even cards with surface imperfections.
High Durability Results
The FARGO HDP8500 is designed to work with the most durable consumables. Clear and holographic overlaminate patches provide higher card durability and longer life to ID credentials. An optional durable retransfer film provides even greater abrasion resistance. The highest level of security features, including secure printing and secure lamination, provide lasting protection from fraud. The FARGO HDP8500 is the ideal printing system for ID cards that need to last.
Advanced System Performance for Enhanced Security, Throughput, and Durability
The FARGO HDP8500 has physical locks on all access points to protect the ribbon and film consumables, as well as the cards, before and after printing. It offers secure PIN access to electronically lock the printer from accepting print jobs. It has several features for data protection. It uses advanced encryption standards (AES) 256 to protect electronic data, and it has a resin-erase feature to eliminate personal data on used ribbon panels. And it offers secure printing and laminating, including UV printing with fluorescing (F) panel ribbons, holographic retransfer film, and holographic this films and overlaminates to provide up to three levels of security: overt, covert, and forensic.
The FARGO HDP8500 by HID Global has multi-processing capabilities to greatly increase card yield per shift. The system can encode one card while printing a second card and laminating a third. It offers two additional print modes - along with the standard print mode - to meet your needs. Also, the HDP8500 has a patented dual input hopper feature, making it the only retransfer printer to allow automatic selection from two different card types without user intervention.
Not all IDs are the same. Some may require only single-sided printing, while others need technology card encoding along with dual-sided printing and laminating. Some organizations need a printer system that fits particular needs now, while also having the capacity to meet additional needs over time. The FARGO HPD8500 is that printer system. It has several options that can be added to meet your specialized requirements, including
ISO magnetic encoding
Contact or contactless card encoding
ISO card flattening mechanism
Andon light remote operator feedback
The FARGO HDP8500 provides all of these system options as field upgrade modules. That means the print system scales as your needs evolve, and you don't need to purchase another solution when your needs shift in the future. What's more, the HDP8500 is fully interoperable with Genuine HID technology. This guarantees the printer's compatibility with other products within the HID ecosystem, enabling organizations to leverage existing HID technology investments.
