Entrust Sigma DS3 Product Review

The Entrust DS3 card printer is the ideal choice for organisations where printing photo ID cards to a high-volume is business critical. The DS3 issues ID cards at superior print speeds packed with high security features such as tactile impression, custom hologram and data encryption meaning sensitive employee or visitor data are not stored in the printer after printing is complete. All of this can be managed from the palm of your hand with the new dashboard feature accessible via a mobile phone or tablet device.

Data Encryption - Ensure your data is safe from intruders with encryption technology, TPM Module, and Secure Boot all available with this high-end security ID card printer. Customer data sent between software and printer is encrypted and not stored in the printer after printing is completed.

Tactile Impression - The tactile impression feature is a unique, high-level security feature used to increase the tamper resistance of a card as well as highlight and promote the customer brand. The impression is visible on the surface of the card making cloned card attempts much easier to spot.

Luster Panel Ribbon - The luster speciality print ribbon allows you to include additional card security that can easily be applied. Adding text and images with the luster panel creates a colour-shifting translucent effect that is only viewable under a UV light. Cloned card attempts can be easily identified.


Expert Verdict

After carrying out advanced in-house tests and assessing every aspect of this printer, our verdict is to award the Entrust Sigma DS3, five stars out of five.

The main plus point for us is the multiple card security features that are accessible with this machine, alongside the ease of use with the printer being managed and controlled from an app that is downloaded during the setup phase. Controlling the printer and reordering supplies has never been easier and will save vasts amount fo time.
