The Magicard Tango II is a simple to use, fast printing, high security color printer, suitable for all dual sided CR-80 ID card applications.

Ease of use is ensured by the Tango's front access controls, drop-in dye film loading, open access card feeder and stacker, and the simplest ever T-card cleaning system.

High speed printing is facilitated by the new Windows 98 and Windows 2000 software driver which offers on-screen printer status and extremely fast downloads via the built-in parallel and USB interface ports. Using full color six panel (YMCKOK) dye film, the Tango II can download and print a full double-sided card image in less than 25 seconds, giving a throughput rate of over 140 cards an hour - even when every card is unique.

Protection from forgery is achieved thanks to Ultra's patented HoloKote™ system which cannot be copied or bypassed. This unique security feature incorporates a repeating frosted security logo into the overcoat laid down during the normal print cycle. A standard HoloKote logo is built into every Tango, but increased security can be achieved through the use of an encrypted custom logon which is electronically stored in a miniature "Compact Flash" sized UltraSecure™ key. HoloKote™ costs absolutely nothing to use, and the custom logo turnaround times and set-up charges for UltraSecure keys are minimal.

Tango owners can also feel secure in the knowledge that their printer is built for heavy duty usage and is ideal for both batch printing and occasional issue applications.

In the unlikely event that anything should go wrong, the Tango is covered by the best no-hassle warranty in the business. Two years UltraCover plus protection is included free in North America and the EEC. This unrivalled plan provides free printhead replacement regardless of the cause of failure and includes a free loaner service if a printer has to be returned for repairs. All other customers are provided with a one year warranty.
