Magicard 600 Product Review
The Magicard 600 ID card printer offers more than ever before with its versatile intelligence.
The new features include a wider colour spectrum, faster printing speeds, advanced card security and Wi-Fi connectivity as standard, the 600 is Magicard’s most advanced card printer to date.
The Magicard 600 offers a more accurate depiction of logos and images along with vibrant, colour rich printing and 600 x 300 dpi in monochrome for extremely high-resolution printing of text.
The Magicard 600 is perfect for photo-image quality and is also able to printer smaller, more legible text sizes.
The Magicard 600 comes with 3-year Magicover warranty as standard which includes a free replacement in the event of a damaged printhead or a failed printer.
The warranty also includes a swap out loan printer if a repair is required (stock dependant), ensuring there is no printing downtime.
The 600 ID card printer is designed specifically for complete ease of use, including Wi-Fi connectivity for quick set-up and an SD card to store settings, HoloKotes® and identity for future printing.
The large capacity of the input and output hoppers allow you to print in larger batches before they need emptying, enabling you to be more productive during the working day.
From switch-on, the Magicard 600 takes just 30 seconds to set-up, allowing instant printing and the Linux-based module is compatible with 10/100 Ethernet for out of the box integration.
All Magicard printers come with built-in HoloKote® as standard.
The HoloKote prints a transparent image into the clear overcoat panel of the standard print process resulting in a secure watermark that can only be seen in certain light.
This can either be a standard design, or you can create up to 10 personalised designs including text, images and logos with the Custom HoloKote.
By adding this watermark, ID cards can be quickly verified that they have been printed from the original source and not cloned.
There is also the option to add a HoloPatch to cards. This is a highly visible gold foil square that highlights the HoloKote watermark, making security even more visible.
Magicard has eliminated the need for a ribbon shredder by including digital shredding within the machine. In simple terms, once data has been used for a print job, it is fragmented and unable to be recovered, helping to ensure the Magicard 600 is not responsible for a data breach.
Optional encoding modules for the Magicard 600 are available including magnetic stripe and smart card encoding.
The Magicard 600 printer can encode hi-co and lo-co ISO 7811 and JIS2 magnetic stripe cards.
Smart card encoding is compatible to contact chip, MIFARE, DESFire and iClass.
The Magicard 600 ID card printer is a direct-to-card (DTC) model. 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 leaving a small white border. This is the only Direct to card printer operating at 600dpi for optimum print quality.
The Magicard 600 prints to both CR80 (credit card) and CR79 sized cards as standard.
Concerning card material, biodegradable, PVC ISO blank cards, hi-co magnetic stripe, smart cards, self-adhesive, rewritable, and HoloPatch cards are all compatible with this printer.
