Hand geometry technology
The HandPunch 2000 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 2000 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.
The HandPunch 2000 connects quickly to the time and attendance system via RS-232 communications. An optional Ethernet module or dial-up high speed modem is available for alternative communications options..
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.
