Fargo Software Development Kit (SDK)

Fargo logo

The Fargo Software Development Kit (SDK) gives programmers control over nearly all of the features of HID printer/encoders — all from within your card technology applications. By using code from the SDK, you’ll 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 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 Card Identity Systems from high-level application software. The SDK offers you:

  • An easy-to-use, high-level API command set.
  • Printer and encoder device abstraction.
  • Positive command confirmation.
  • Forward compatibility with future Fargo printer/encoders.
