Software Development Kit
New and improved, easy-to-use, entry-level card personalization software.

Get direct access to the capabilities of Fargo Card Printer/Encoders and Systems.
The Fargo Software Development Kit (SDK) gives programmers control over nearly all of the features of Fargo printer/
encoders ‚ all from within your card technology applications. By using code from the Fargo SDK, youll be able to read and
write smart cards (contact and contactless), select a card hopper, password-protect printer/encoders, run diagnostics and
more. Whether you're developing a stand-alone badging program, or an integrated security system, the Fargo SDK lets you
tap into our industry-leading card issuance technologies.

Faster, easier development for more robust applications.

The Fargo SDK gives commercial and in-house software developers, and security system integrators, a logical model for
accessing the functions of Fargo Card Identity Systems from high-level application software. The Fargo SDK offers you:
Ease of use. An easy-to-use, high-level API command set controls card printing and encoding, diagnostics, upgrades, audits
and enables printer security.

Printer and encoder abstraction.
You don't have to know the details of how a driver talks to a specific Fargo printer or smart card encoder module. The SDK‚ high-level interface abstracts devices so you can perform complex functions with a few lines of code instead of hundreds.
Positive command confirmation. The API returns a status indicating a properly executed command, a successfully completed operation, or the nature of an error.

Forward compatibility.
Using the Fargo SDK helps ensure that your software applications will be compatible with future Fargo printer/encoders.
The Fargo SDK supports programming environments such as Visual Basic, Visual C++, Visual C#, .NET-based languages or
any other language that supports COM-based objects.

Online help and expert support for a constantly changing environment.
As Fargo products grow more sophisticated, we‚'re dedicated to keeping application development as easy as possible. The Fargo SDK includes an extensive online help library that details every class and method and provides helpful code snippets in
Visual Basic and Visual C#. For additional resources, professional support packages are available at various levels and price ranges.
