Idesco Adds RFID Encoding Features to Portable ID Card Printer

Idesco, a New York-based security systems integrator, has announced enhancements to its XXL 2.0 ID card printer for oversized badges. Optional ultrahigh-frequency (UHF) encoders are now available, making the printer capable of personalizing such badges with RFID and UHF encoding.

UHF card applications offer a greater read range, added memory and more reliability, Idesco reports. Customers can now streamline the flow of visitors while providing increased access control and efficiency.

The XXL 2.0 ID card printer now comes in a dark burgundy color. The card-feeding rollers have been improved in order to simplify the feeding process, the company notes, and the printer is designed to personalize oversized ID cards on demand.

Event managers can use the printer to secure large venues, concerts, award ceremonies, trade shows and other corporate functions. The device can print up to 180 full cards per hour in color, and up to 1,400 cards per hour in monochrome.

"Our XXL printer has quickly become a standard in personalizing oversized badges on the spot," said Andrew Schonzeit, Idesco's president, in a prepared statement. "Over the years, Idesco has secured major events, and I believe that the latest printer enhancements will definitely bring incredible value to our customers. We had received many requests for UHF encoding, and we are very happy to offer a comprehensive solution that perfectly meets our clients' needs."
