Product Description

Refurbished Evolis Dualys 3 Dual Sided Direct To Card ID Print With Printer Options

As with all of our machines, this machine comes fully cleaned, serviced internally, calibrated for excellent print quality, and guaranteed working perfectly.

Features and Benefits:

• The Dualys 3 offers a wide variety of options to its users. Its internal USB hub connects specific encoders, while the USB and Ethernet TCP/IP ports network it and link it to systems operating with Windows, Mac OS X or Linux. You can also set up self-service terminals with the kiosk version. A programming guide and development kits are also available for developers.
• For dual-sided colour printing (YMCKO-K), the Dualys 3 is one of the fastest printers in its category. It provides high-quality graphics, whether in colour or in monochrome. With its dual-sided printing engine, the Dualys 3 meets any ID need the user may have.
• The Dualys 3 benefits from world-class technology that supports the strictest standards to encode magnetic stripes, as well as contact or contactless smart cards. For example, the Dualys 3 produces student IDs loaded with features: e-purse, access control to premises, transit pass, payment at the cafeteria, and access to libraries.


  • Employee, contractor, and visitor ID cards
  • Government photo IDs for agency inspectors and public safety officers
  • Photo IDs for assistance program participants
  • Parking lots
  • Library cards
  • Casino frequent player cards
  • Payment

  • Identification Card

The Dualys 3 is equipped with a feeder and an output hopper, both with a capacity of 100 cards. These features make the printer perfect to deliver cards in medium to large runs.

The printer also has a manual feeder that turns it into a card-by-card printer.

The Dualys 3 guarantees a smooth process with minimum user intervention with its stunning throughput of 125 cards per hour in dual-sided mode.

Support Package

Infocus Support Packages for Plastic Card Printers:


In addition to support supplied by the manufacturer, our Infocus technical team provide a full “hand-holding” service which includes the remote setup of printers and software on up to two computers. We will also assist with remote software training to get you or your staff completely up and running. Moving forward, Infocus will assist with any technical problems for as long as you have the printer and you continue to buy consumables from us (we price match our competitors). Response time from opening a support ticket is usually within 4 hours and no more than 1 working day.  We aim to resolve issues which can be fixed by remote connection within 24 hours (1 working day – weekends and public holidays are excluded).

Under a standard RTB (return to base) warranty: Should your machine become faulty after the first 30 days then you will need to cover the cost of getting the printer back to us for repair.

Full support is provided for software supplied by us. If a problem is found with 3rd party software not supplied by Infocus ID, we may have to refer you to that product’s support team.

Cost: FREE with all printers purchased from Infocus ID. Otherwise the price is £99 + VAT per year.


Available in the UK only:

In addition to the Bronze package, response time from opening a ticket will be much faster and wherever possible we will endeavour to handle any issues instantly. We will aim to resolve your issue completely within 4 working hours and if we cannot do this we will book your printer in for repair and issue a loan unit within 1 working day.

You will receive a loan unit at no extra cost should your machine need to come in for repair. All courier costs will be covered by Infocus for repairs and loan units. A deposit will be required by credit card to receive a loan unit. The deposit will be fully refunded the same day we receive the loan printer back.

*Physical damage to printheads, data and power ports is not included. For continued printhead cover a cleaning cycle will need to be performed on the printer at least every 1000 cards printed. This information is stored digitally in each printer and cannot be disputed. Should a data port be physically damaged (such as a USB port) on the printer’s PCB (usually the mainboard), we will attempt to repair the PCB free of charge. In some occasions though, the PCB may be damaged past repair, in which case we reserve the right to charge for a new PCB.
