Put your hands on the accurate, a ordable solution

Schlage now brings the accuracy and convenience of biometric technology easily within reach of any time and attendance applications. In operations that range from coal mines to clean rooms, Schlage HandPunches have proven themselves to be a practical and precise solution. Our terminals are so a ordable, it doesn’t make sense to consider any other technology.

Smarter than card-based terminals

There are no cards to create, administer, carry, or lose. The HandPunch® 3000 veri es employees’ identities in less than one second, based on the unique size and shape of their hands. HandPunch 3000 clearly noti es each user of a match using red and green indicator lights. Because no one can punch in or out for your employees, the system reduces time theft and improves payroll accuracy.

Versatile and programmable

Beyond a simple time clock, the HandPunch 3000 provides de nable data management keys that allow data collection when employees punch. The readers transmit data to the time and attendance host PC through a variety of methods including direct wiring, modem and Ethernet. The HandPunch 3000 also has the ability to control a door. When you want to cut time and attendance costs… do it by hand.

Hand geometry technology

The HandPunch 3000 uses Schlage’s eld-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 ngerprints 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-de nable 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 de ned. 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.

Communication options

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.

Edit-at-the-clock functions

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 exibility by lessening the need for computer edits. Audit trails documenting the use of these functions are generated to ensure security.

Bell schedules

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.

Door control

The HandPunch 3000 provides the capability to unlock and monitor a door. Global timezones may be used to restrict employee access.

Antimicrobial protection

Every HandPunch contains a silver-based antimicrobial agent, which is embedded into the materials used to produce the platen, providing a nish that inhibits the growth of a broad spectrum of bacteria, mold, and fungi and remains active for the life of the HandPunch.

Hand outline

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.
