The Evolis Primacy ID badge printer is the workhorse dye-sublimintation ID badge printer from Evolis. Good for for demanding medium to high card personalization volumes, this printer improves upon the entry level Evolis Zenius printer by adding increased speed, output, and durability.
The Primacy has field upgradable features making this one of the most versatile printers in the industry. Dual sided printing capabilities, magnetic stripe encoders, and smartcard encoders can all be added after purchase at a later time.
This ID badge printer is also environmentally friendly by consuming low power levels and outputting very little noise during the printing process.
3 new features available now on Primacy
Optional: Color Touch Screen Display
This new graphical interface is ideal for counter applications. Already available, it can be combined with the electro-mechanical locking system from July 2016 upon request and validation by the Evolis project team.
Optional: Electro-Mechanical Locks
Primacy features an electro-mechanical locking system which prevents the printer from being opened by unauthorized personnel in localized issuance of secure cards.
This new feature meets the market requirements for instant issuance of financial cards as well as any application requiring a secured issuance process.
Increased Monochrome Speed : up to 1,000 cards per hour
