NiSCA Plans to Unveil High-Speed Card Printer
NiSCA will introduce the NiSCA PR5360LE, a high-speed, direct-to-card plastic card printer, based on the NiSCA PR5300 series, at ISC West. The single-sided card printer has an optional magnetic stripe 3-track encoding as well as a more advanced IC contact chip and IC contactless encoding.
"Until now, the NiSCA line included an out-of-the-box solution for small organizations and a dual-sided, high-end plastic card printer for large companies. With the addition of the PR5360LE, there is an inclusive line of printers for medium to large companies that do not have the need for dual-sided but need extra layers of credential security," explained Andrew Peterson, senior manager of sales and marketing.
The PR5360LE is compatible with the NiSCA PR5302 for patch or edge-to-edge lamination. Mainstream plastic card printers provide an overcoat protection to the card; however, tests have shown that that the right chemicals can strip this overlay and manipulate the text. For this reason, corporations, governments and universities require security lamination. Laminate one side to provide extra security.
NiSCA offers a number of custom and generic holograms for the PR5360LE. Secure holograms help protect against counterfeiting and make an entire ID system – and thus facilities – more secure. The security features built into holograms are difficult to duplicate and can frustrate even the most skilled counterfeiter.
Additional security features that can be added with a PR5360LE printer include UV and micro text printing. UV printing allows the automated printing of the printer's serial and model number, date of printing, variable demographic data and 1-bit monochrome graphics.
"The PR5360LE is affordable. An entry-level price point and the same great performance you expect from NiSCA's professional, high speed printers," Peterson said. " The PR5360LE enhances security for organizations that do not need dual-sided printing."
