Its real life-like colours are clean, bright and reliable for many years. All inks has been certified and approved by an accredited German institute.

Compact installation space

The DILETTA 600i internal structure has been designed to realize a compact size and full front operation. It requires only a limited installation space - Allowing it to be installed freely. By specially designing the internal structure it has been possible to incorporate the functions in a compact and simple square sheet form, without wasting space. Its compact size allows installation in any location, such as a long side of a PC. In addition full front operation and a flat top panel mean that the top panel can also be utilised as a space for passports or stacking printers.

The new Power Printer. Professional down to the detail.

Multi functional - it prints in black and white or colour, onto a wide range of paper weights as well as into passports or other travel documents. You will enjoy its flexibility for a large number of applications. The extra large ink storage tanks will support efficient operation.

RFID module for e-passports.

The big increase in international travel activities and the need of adequate security measures require fast control of secure travel documents. Individual security features become international standards such as digitally printed photographs, security ink, machine-readable code lines, biometric data as contained in 2-dimensional barcodes (fingerprint, eyescan), and contactless RFID chips. All these features are already supported by DILETTA 600i series.

The integrated RFID module supports all chips and operating systems. Its in-field upgradeable firmware makes the RFID-module a secure and future-proof investment, providing both flexibility and fast time to market for new applications as well as minimum risk linked to contactless technology standards evolution.

Installed in more than thirty countries worldwide

The DILETTA 600i continues the big success of the DILETTA Passport Printer Series. Within the first six months of production it has already been installed in more than ten countries worldwide.

Colour Print Perfection.

For those who rely on top print quality DILETTA 600i offers an excellent choice. Each passport page will show laserprinted contours and clearly defined shades. A first-class printing quality on all security type of papers. Not only the printing of the machine-readable lines and the visual zones are of top quality but there is also the impressive colour photograph printing. This is achieved by the high performance of the print head which has a resolution of up to 4800 dpi (dots per inch). Two parallel installed print heads manage the job – DILETTA 600i sets the professional standard for colour printing in the passport issuing office.

Plenty of ink available - The printer with a storage tank.

DILETTA 600i cares for the needs of a busy passport issuing office. The specially developed individual ink tanks can be exchanged easily independent and make running costs extremely economical for both mono and colour prints. The DILETTA 600i comes standard with 150 ml high capacity ink tanks (66 ml for black and 28 ml for each colour ink tank), allowing them to easily cope with large volume printing demands.

Easy replacement of ink tanks

The full front operation allows the easy exchange of each individual ink tank by opening the front ink tank cover even if the printers are stacked. Open the ink tank cover. Replace the empty ink tank indicated by a blinking light. Close the cover.


Thick or thin documents? Easy!

The DILETTA 600i Passport Printer comes with a patented passport transport system which can handle a wide range of different print requirements: It can print directly onto every page of a 4 up to 100 pages passport without any adjustment. The DILETTA 600i also handles a variety of print material such as thin paper through to carton box material, security paper, coated paper, Teslin, inkjet coated foils and films (OHP), glossy photo paper. All print results are of a high quality with brilliant colours and crisp, black text.

It is good to have a good connection

DILETTA 600i comes standard with a Hi-Speed USB 2.0 port and an integrated 10/100base-TX Ethernet adapter.

The integrated Hi-Speed USB Hub connects your printer and all optional hardware, like RFID Contactless Chip Module, Camera System, OCR/Barcode Reader or for example a Software Hardlock for your software application, to your PC.

The Ethernet adapter connects your printers directly to the network allowing users of different operating systems to share printer resources. The Ethernet adapter is the easy way of connecting a DILETTA 600i passport printer to an Ethernet network. Instead of attaching your passport printer locally to the PC, use the Ethernet adapter and free computing resources. The main benefit is that it allows you to share your printer with other workgroup members, and compared to a PC it will handle printing faster, more reliably and more effectively.

Easy configuration of all Ethernet settings via integrated Web Interface. Just open your Internet Explorer and access the printer like a conventional website by typing the printers IP address.
