Hand Geometry


HandPunchGT-400


♦ The HandPunch™ GT-400 is one of the most important solutions for effective workforce management. With the HandPunch you can improve record-keeping accuracy, mitigate risk, increase employee productivity and provide greater peace of mind for yourself and your employees. Coupled with a software provider, the HandPunch GT-400 delivers tangible benefits every day. In fact, when used properly the initial cost of the HandPunch GT-400 can be paid back in less than nine months.

♦ Increased up-time – upgrade remotely by downloading new firmware and application functionality through an Ethernet connection; there is no need to remove the device from the wall or disrupt productivity.

♦ Improved serviceability – remote diagnostic capability allows for troubleshooting maintenance without removing the device from the wall.

♦ Employee self-service kiosk – programmable, ATM-style kiosk has soft keys and a large display field that allows information like lists and personal messages to be displayed.

♦ Real-time communication – access information in real time with push technology.

♦ Open architecture design – Linux-based operating system ensures programming flexibility.

♦ Antimicrobial protection – antimicrobial coating embedded in the platen, keypad and plastics inhibits the growth of bacteria.

♦ How the HandPunch Works The HandPunch GT-400 uses the size and shape of each employee’s hand for verification, so it’s fast, easy and efficient. The user’s hand can still be read even if it’s dirt, wet, greasy, dusty, swollen or dry, making it an effective solution in a wide range of applications. The HandPunch also provides a host of benefits for your business.

♦ Reduced payroll and administration costs – because punch-in and punch-out data is read and recorded at the point of entry, translation of timecards is eliminated, along with any discrepancies between time worked and time reported.

♦ Eliminates time fraud – since every user’s hand is unique, the HandPunch eliminates costly and fraudulent “buddy punching.”

♦ More productive and informed workforce – verification takes place in about one second; during that process the communication panel can display relevant messages to employees, promoting communication with management.

HandPunch 4000


The HandPunch 4000 is more than just a time-and-attendance tracking device. It’s a comprehensive access control system that enhances your security, while ensuring accurate records and saving money.

The HandPunch works by identifying a user’s hand geometry –

The unique size and shape of their hand. This means your employees will no longer need to carry cards or keys. The costs and risk associated with credentials that can be lost, stolen or duplicated without authorization is also eliminated. HandPunch also eliminates time fraud by making it virtually impossible to “buddy punch.” The result is less cost of ownership and more accuracy, productivity and profitability for your company.

Accurate verification in any conditions –

Since HandPunch identifies users by hand geometry instead of a fingerprint, identification will still be accurate even if the user’s hand is wet, injured or dirty.

Programmable for your needs –

Ten user-definable data management options let you collect and/or display data as employees punch in, such as department transfers, tips collected, job codes or pay codes. The HandPunch may also be used to allow employees to review punches, job schedules, vacation time accumulated, hours worked and more.

Manage schedules by employee –

Individual employee schedules may be downloaded to the HandPunch 4000 to restrict the times that an employee can punch, reducing unauthorized overtime.

Built-in bar code reader –

When a badge is required for identification, the HandPunch 4000 is available with an integrated bar code reader. The swipe-style reader supports the most poplar bar code formats and allows for infrared badges.

Edit-at-the-clock capability –

Supervisors can override user restrictions to input data such as missed punches, planned vacations and sick time right at the terminal. A built-in audit trail documents each of these functions to ensure the highest level of security.

Antimicrobial protection –

Every HandPunch has a built-in antimicrobial coating on the surface of the platen. This finish helps inhibit the growth of bacteria, mold and fungi and lasts for the life of the device.

Hand outline –

Every HandPunch comes standard with a blue hand outline printed on the platen. This ensures accurate hand placement for verification, as well as quick, easy enrollment.
