The Smart 51L plastic ID card printer not only prints high-quality full-colour and monochrome cards, but it also gives the option of lamination, adding that extra layer of durability and keeping the images more vivid for longer, therefore increasing security for identification purposes.

“The Smart 51L not only prints high-quality full-colour and monochrome cards, but it also gives the option of lamination.”
“Delivering photo-like images, vibrant colours, crisp text and scratch and colour-fade resistant cards. ”
“Completed with five-year manufacturer warranty as standard, years of development and manufacturing innovation has made the IDP Smart printer brand known for its durability.”

Key Printer Features

Print Quality

The IDP Smart 51L uses Enhanced FINE Imaging Technology. This technology delivers photo-like images, vibrant colours, crisp text and scratch and colour-fade resistant cards. The dye sublimation printing at a resolution of 300 dpi creates high-quality cards whilst the true-to-life colour reproduction also ensures that printed cards comply with existing branding guidelines.
Please note, the edge-to-edge printing leaves a thin white border around the outside of the card.

Reliability

Completed with five-year manufacturer warranty as standard, years of development and manufacturing innovation has made the IDP Smart printer brand known for its durability.

Ease of Use

This printer is user-friendly and intuitive, and everyday tasks can be completed in a matter of minutes. You will also be alerted if the ribbon needs changing or prompted about the cleaning cycle.

Ease of Setup

Set up is quick and straightforward, just follow the quick start guide to get set up and go. 

Security

The use of locks can not only secure the cards, ribbons and laminate film, but it can be ordered to include optional Kensington locks to be attached to a desk to reduce the risk of printer theft. 
The use of the lamination also increases security as images are much more clear and vibrant for longer, meaning identification can be seen more clearly and therefore not only is your printer secure but if your business is based on identification, then this will be kept safer for longer.

Encoding

The Smart 51L allows for magnetic, contact and contactless card encoding as additional add-ons. With the use of Enhanced FINE™ Imaging Technology, the IDP Smart 51L can print machine-readable barcodes such as QR codes, 2d barcodes, and traditional 1d barcodes.

Printer Type

The Smart 51L printer is a direct-to-card (DTC) model that has been designed and developed on proven-to-work features from both the IDP Smart 50 and 70 models. DTC printing means the card design is taken from the ribbon and then printed directly onto to the surface of the card which gives it a glossy professional finish. Speeding up the process, the lamination heats up in just 8 seconds and laminates the card as it is printed.

Card Types

The IDP Smart 51L prints to standard CR80 sized cards from a wide range of materials including PVC, PET, and composite PVC cards. 

Print Volume

If you’re printing a high volume of cards each month, then you'll need a printer that you can rely on, that can also produce the highest quality print possible. Based on a standard working week of 35 hours, the IDP Smart 51L will be able to produce around 5,740 dual-sided, full colour (YMCKOK) cards, 7,420 single-sided, full-colour (YMCKO) or a massive 25,200 monochrome single-sided cards.

Print Speed

The Smart 51L can produce 720 monochrome cards per hour, 212 full-colour (YMCKO) single-sided cards per hour and 164 dual-sided, full colour (YMCKOK) cards per hour. This is 10% faster than the IDP Smart 50. When these cards have been printed, they're instantly dry, ready to issue, and scratch and colour fade resistant. 

Connectivity

Coming with USB and Ethernet connectivity as standard, this means it can be connected to one device or linked to a network for multiple uses.

Operating Systems

Standard USB/Ethernet ports and the browser-based Printer Manager helps you integrate printers into third-party applications as well as existing systems.

Size

The 51L is slightly longer than the standard 51 models, yet it will still fit comfortably on an office desk. The exact dimensions are; 6.5”(W) x 26.6” (L) x 8.3 (H).

Appearance

The 51L matches all the other Smart Series range with its sophisticated colour scheme and sleek, minimalistic aesthetic it fits in well with a professional office. The LCD navigation screen also provides a modern edge.  

Card Design Software

EasyBadge Professional is an advanced ID card design software that gives the user complete control over how their card looks and create an unlimited amount of records.

There is also the option to choose from one of four templates or switch to the creative mode and design a new card from scratch.

Expert Verdict

We have awarded the IDP Smart 51L, five out of five stars.

This is due to its consistently high-quality printing and the option of lamination greatly adds to the durability whilst increasing security for identification purposes. IDP has only improved with the Smart 51L, allowing for printing speeds 10% faster than the IDP Smart 50.
