The TA745 functions as a simple to use data collection point for employee information. It can be linked to a variety of existing computer networks in your organization to complement the management information systems you already have in place. By automating your data collection process, you can eliminate the manpower and mistakes associated with conventional time cards thereby reducing both payroll costs and errors.
The TA745 guarantees accurate, reliable input. Employees simply enter information through the TA745’s keypad, by swiping a magnetic stripe or proximity badge. In addition, the TA745’s Biometric capability positively identifies the employee, eliminating buddy punching. Employee feedback is provided through audible accept/reject tones and displayed messages.
Communication between the TA745 is on a polled basis. Entering punches is as easy as swiping a badge or keying in a pin number. Alternately, an employee can press a function key and be prompted to enter additional information such as a department or job number. In restaurant environments the TA745’s Tip key can accept up to two types of tip inputs, cash and charge. Each piece of information is stored in the terminal’s memory until requested by the host computer. The TA745 can be programmed to display employee messages and control a bell. The TA745 collects this data and transfers it to your computer via RS232 serial, RS485 LAN, internal dial-up modem or Ethernet communications, whether wired or wireless.
Three Programmable Functions
Each function key can be programmed to collect pre defined data, plus the initial employee I.D. and time stamp. For example, an employee could press the Job key and be prompted to input a work order number.
The TA745 is constructed of injection molded plastic, which, pound for pound is stronger than steel, yet lightweight and attractive. The terminals have domed membrane keypads, which create a watertight seal against external elements, including a spilt cup of coffee. Also comes with an integrated wall-mounting bracket.
2x16 Character LCD Display
The terminal comes with a highly advanced filtered LCD display. This means that under almost any lighting condition the terminal will give you a clear picture. The terminal supports characters such as <space>.
Battery Backed Memory
The terminal contains a rechargeable back-up battery which provides over 2 hours of full operation during power failure. A warning indicator light on the terminals keypad alerts you to loss of line power. In addition, the TA745 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.
After the employee enters their ID, the terminal can display a 16-character such as the employee’s name, hours worked, or location to report to. Messages can be personalized (i.e. "HAPPY BIRTHDAY"), giving your data collection terminal a human touch. In addition, message tables can be accessed through the terminals function keys. These message tables can be used to display information such as the employee’s hours, schedule and benefits balances.
With the TA745’s internal relay, the terminal can control a 30 Vdc, 1 A dry-contact circuit. The signal control relay can be turned on by time of day for bell ringing. The duration time is also programmable.
