Evolis Dualys 3

Evolis Dualys printer

Evolis Dualys is a double sided colour ID card printer

The Evolis Dualys printer was the big sister of the Pebble printer and was developed for printing full color plastic cards on both sides in large volumes. Replaced by the Primacy Duplex printer in 2011, we continue the sale of consumables for Dualys printer such as the printing ribbon and the white card, as well as its spare parts (print head and cleaning roller Evolis Dualys is a real PVC badge printing and encoding system.

This solution benefits from the latest encoding technology

ISO or JIS2 magnetic tracks, and contact or contactless smart cards (RFID). These encoding options can be combined to personalise multifeatured cards in a single pass, paving the way to a wide range of market applications in various industries: identification, biometric security, transport, financial institutions, educational organizations, loyalty programs, and leisure.


The Dualys3 generation comes with a new CPU and print head for outstanding graphics and image definition, with an incremental factor of 100 when compared with the earlier version.
A "Colour Profile" feature provides the user with a colour matching filter which prints colours similar to those displayed on the screen. Dual sided printer, with a 125 card/hour print speed in colour (YMCKO-K), Dualys provides premium performances in its category.

16MB memory

The printer is loaded with a 16MB memory for optimised operations. This enables RAM storage of both sides of a card and a self recovery process in case of disruption: data integrity is preserved and any job in progress will automatically resume.


Dualys features a standard USB port and is conveniently shipped with an interface cable. An IP-based Ethernet port is also available as an option to bridge Dualys to a LAN, just like any conventional paper printer.
