Fargo Wi-Fi Module - Nifty ID Card Printer Accessory!

Posted by Heath McDonald on 23-Apr-2016 10:30:00

Wi-Fi is literally everywhere these days; at home, at work, at Maccas and even mid air on a flight from Sydney to Melbourne.

Not only is Wi-Fi everywhere, it's in almost every thing and now the HID Fargo ID card printers can have Wi-Fi too. The clever people at HID Global who manufacture the Fargo ID card printers (in my opinion the best card printers available today) have developed the Fargo Wi-Fi Module.

This Fargo Wi-Fi module will allow you to print cards through your existing Wi-Fi. With a range of up to 70 meters (indoor) and a whopping 250 meters (outdoor) away from the Wi-Fi router. (The Fargo ID card printer must have Ethernet option).
