Fargo FGO-44100 Specifications

FGO44000 Card Printer & System

The unbelievably easy and secure way to print and encode plastic ID cards.

  • Dual- or single-sided Direct-to-Card printing of photos, bar codes and digitized signatures. Field-upgradeable smart card, proximity and magnetic stripe encoding options.
  • Eliminates hassles of loading ribbons and cleaning rollers with exclusive SmartLoad™ ribbon cartridge.
  • Ideal for small to mid-sized corporations, K 12 schools, police and fire, and local and state government facilities.

FGO44000 System

Fargo Secure hardware and software work together with the FGO-44100 to protect your entire ID card issuance process.

Upgrading for smart cards

Optional encoding modules give you the flexibility to work with a variety of card technologies like HID MIFARE® and proximity cards.

Purchase Considerations

With the FGO44000, upgrading the security level of ID cards for business, schools and government is easier than you think.


Print Security Suite™

Control the issuance and help ensure the authenticity of your photo ID cards with this five-application suite.

Fargo Professional Services

Make sure your large-scale card identity system meets all of your requirements. Fargo Professional Services works in tandem with your Fargo integrator to provide expert program management, system design, implementation and product customization.


SecureVault is unique hardware and software system for protecting an often-overlooked part of card identity systems materials security. SecureVault tracks the movement and use of blank cards, printer ribbons, holographic films and other sensitive materials.

Holographic Foil Cards

These cards feature a tamper-resistant, instantly verifiable foil that’s permanently embedded into the card surface. The foil alone helps make non-laminated ID cards more secure, or it can add another security layer to laminated cards.

Optional dual-sided printing


Dual-sided printing doubles the printable area of your ID cards. That means you can put larger photos on the front, and additional information, bar codes and digitized signatures on the back. Dual-sided printing can also make cards harder to counterfeit.

Optional smart card encoding

Comprehensive security applications frequently combine photo IDs with some type of technology or “smart” cards. With optional modules, Fargo’s Professional Series printer/encoders can encode up to three smart card technologies in one pass: contact and contactless smart card, magnetic stripe, and proximity card (read-only).

SmartLoad™ ribbon cartridge

The FGO-44100 takes the hassle out of handling printer supplies. Its SmartLoad ribbon cartridge combines the printer ribbon and card-cleaning roller into one disposable unit. Just slide in the cartridge, close the door and you’re done. No feeding or tearing ribbon rolls, no fumbling with separate cleaning rollers.

SecureMark® Technology

A stolen ID card printer or even just a stolen ribbon can turn into gold for a counterfeiter. The FGO-44100 uses Fargo’s exclusive SecureMark Technology to reduce vulnerabilities like these. For example, ribbon cartridges can be coded to work with a specific DTC400; a stolen ribbon won’t work in any other printer.


Purchase Considerations

After you’ve read through all of the features and options, checked the specs, and have seen how the FGO-44100 fits into a secure card identity system, you ultimately have to ask: Is this the right card printer/encoder for my security applications? As you ponder your purchase decision, here are some things to consider:

Protecting people, property and information is everyone’s priority these days. In companies, schools, libraries, retail establishments and a wide range of other organizations, the DTC400 has proven itself as an incredibly easy way to enhance your security. The optional dual-sided printing module gives you extra room on the back of each card for additional security information, bar codes and digitized signatures. Printing on VeriMark™ or HoloMark™ foil cards gives your IDs an extra, hard-to-counterfeit layer of protection.

The FGO-44100 is designed to adapt to your changing security needs. It offers a full range of field-upgradeable smart card encoding modules, so you can add functionality to your basic photo IDs. Start with a magnetic stripe encoder, for example, then upgrade later on to more advanced smart card technologies for controlling access to facilities, networks and information. The DTC400 can also be networked for distributed card issuance applications.

Card issuance
We can’t say it enough: An ID card is only as secure as the system that issued it. And Fargo makes the world’s most secure card identity systems. They’re built on a common technology platform Fargo ’s exclusive SecureMark® Technology that reduces vulnerabilities throughout the system, from storing blank ribbons to password-protecting printers. When you combine the DTC400 printer/encoder with our Print Security Suite™ software and SecureVault™ materials management system, you surround your card issuance process with exceptionally high-level protection.

So who can you trust to help you put all of this together? Trust the real-world expertise of a Fargo Authorized Integrator.
