Built in Security and New Watermark Feature

The DTC1500 comes standard with easy to implement security features like the resin data scramble and the ability to apply a custom watermark overlay. This allows for the application of a customised transparent security image such as a logo, symbol, or text to be integrated as a permanent watermark within the printed card’s overlay panel making duplication virtually impossible. The DTC1500 custom watermark provides organisations with a cost-efficient way to significantly increase card security and prevent possible counterfeiters without additional investment in holographic overlaminates or foils.

Field Upgradable

The modular design of the DTC1500, allows you to add field upgradable units at any time after the initial purchase. Modules such as dual side flippers, RFID Encoders and the lamination unit provide extra protection or holographic film to the top of your card.
