New Features on the Evolis Primacy

Evolis are pleased to announce the availability of three new features on the Primacy Plastic Card Printer which will further enhance its status as the flagship printer of their brand and the card printer market.

1. Electro-mechanical locking system to secure the card issuance process
Primacy now features an electro-mechanical locking system which prevents the printer from being opened by unauthorised personnel, this system secures vulnerable areas such as:
• Blank card stock
• Rejected cards
• Ribbons
• Maintenance door
The printer is also now fitted with opaque hoppers to guarantee that cards are not visible from the outside.

While locking is done using the physical key, unlocking can also be performed via a 3rd-Party application thanks to the Evolis Premium SDK or through the colour touch screen display by activating a PIN-code. This new feature meets the market requirements for instant issuance of financial cards as well as any application requiring a secured issuance process.

This option is available upon request and validation of the Evolis project team. Take a look at the video here.

2. Increased Monochrome Speed : up to 1,000 cards per hour
For users with high monochrome throughput requirements, Primacy printers are now fitted with a new rear-ejection mode (and a specific detachable-rear-output hopper) increasing the monochrome speed to up to 1,000 cards per hour.

This standard feature is available on every Primacy entering production from the end of May 2016. To allow backward compatibility, the detachable output hopper can be purchased separately to be installed on any existing Primacy and upgraded to Evolis Premium Suite version and Firmware version 1614 available from from the beginning of June.

3. Colour Touch Screen Display
This new graphical interface is ideal for counter applications (transit, banking, loyalty, casinos). This unique feature allows instant notification and interaction with the printer for a best-in-class user experience.

Already available as a factory-mounted option or on-site upgrade, it can be combined with the electro-mechanical locking system from July 2016 upon request and validation by the Evolis project team.
