Discontinued, we Render Technician Service only-Time America HP1000E Biometric HandPunch Time Clock


Biometric technology is the new technology standard for employee data collection for a wide variety of industries including manufacturing, finance, health care and many more. HandPunch units eliminate the need for badges or passwords which can be lost or forgotten by identifying an employee by the unique size and shape of his or her hand.  A key benefit to using a HandPunch unit is the elimination of buddy punching – when employees to clock in and out for one another. Optionally, select HandPunch unit also eliminates unauthorized overtime by forcing schedules that restrict when employees can use the terminal.  The design of the Hand Punch unit is made to withstand daily use of nearly any workforce. The casing is constructed of injection-molded plastic, which is strong yet lightweight and the silicon rubber keypad creates a seal against the outside elements.  Additionally the unit’s internal Lithium battery keeps the time and calendar accurate, and holds data in the event of a power loss.


Whether you are implementing data collection system for the first time or updating your existing technology, the HandPunch unit provides a safeguard against costly overpayments, security threats and a maximized return on investment.

Durable Construction

The terminal comes with an integrated wall-mounting bracket.


16 Character LCD Display

The terminal comes with a highly advanced 2x16 backlight liquid crystal display.  This means that under almost any lighting condition the terminal will give you a clear picture.


Battery Backed Memory

The Hand Biometric Reader has an internal Lithium battery keeping your data safe even if the power is out for weeks.  The terminal's internal Lithium battery not only holds the memory, but also keeps the time and calendar accurate.  With the addition of the optional internal battery backup, all functions are 100% operational if power is removed.  Once power resumes, the battery automatically recharges.  With the Time America terminal, your collected data is no longer at the mercy of the utility company.


Employee Messaging

After the employee enters their ID number, the terminal can display a 16-character message to that employee.  Messages such as the employees name, hours worked, or location to report to may be downloaded to the terminal.  Messages are specific to each employee, so messages such as "HAPPY BIRTHDAY" can give your data collection terminal that human touch.


Software Compatibility

This HandPunch clock's firmware is designed to work with Time America software.  This clock can be used with other software manufacturers however a conversion or activation code may be required.
