Hand geometry technology
The HandPunch 3000 uses Schlage’s field-proven hand geometry biometric technology. The terminal captures an image of the hand each time the employee punches. The hand’s size and the shape are used to verify their identity with unparalleled accuracy. No fingerprints or palm prints are utilized. Green and red lights notify the employee of the status of each punch. There’s no question any more; employees have to be there to punch.
Programmable data management keys
The HandPunch 3000 has two user-definable data management keys that let you collect data as employees punch. Common uses include department transfers, tips collected, job codes, or pay codes. Multi-level data entry sequences may be defined. You can also set the data management keys to allow employees to review their past punches. To reduce keystrokes, the keys can also be set to automatically enter data such as a frequently used department number or in/out status.
Whether your application calls for one terminal or thousands, the HandPunch 3000 can meet the need. Multiple terminals can be networked together at a site via RS-485 wiring. An optional Ethernet communications module or dial up modem are also available. Both options are internal to the terminal making installation fast and simple.
The HandPunch 3000 allows supervisors to override user restrictions and to input such items as missed punches, planned vacations, and sick time at the terminal. The password-protected mode provides greater supervisor flexibility by lessening the need for computer edits. Audit trails documenting the use of these functions are generated to ensure security.
The bell schedule lets you program the day, time, and duration of a series of bells. The bells can be programmed to signal the beginning or end of a shift, lunch, or break.
The HandPunch 3000 provides the capability to unlock and monitor a door. Global timezones may be used to restrict employee access.
Every HandPunch contains a silver-based antimicrobial agent, which is embedded into the materials used to produce the platen, providing a finish that inhibits the growth of a broad spectrum of bacteria, mold, and fungi and remains active for the life of the HandPunch.
The HandPunch comes standard with a blue hand outline printed on the platen. This hand outline will help new users place their hand accurately on the platen when using the terminal and decrease initial enrollment time.
