Vx510 & Vx570 Setup Guide
SETUP
To set up your new FlexClock, there are only two cables to
connect, with a third being optional. Connect the Ethernet
cable underneath (Vx510) or on the back of (Vx570) the
clock and then to your network. Be sure to use either the
port labeled 10BaseT (Vx510) or that is not labeled at all
(Vx570). The clock will be unable to transmit if it connected
to the incorrect port. Next connect the power cord, and
the analog telephone line if desired. Once connected, the
clock can be used immediately if the clock has already been
added to your account.

Your company’s IT department can tell you whether you
need to set up a “Static IP address”. Usually, you do not

Analog Setup
The FlexClock Z-Series
The analog line can be used as a backup in the case that the
clock can not communicate over the network. This is done
automatically if the cord has been connected to the port
labeled with a telephone and to an active, analog phone
line. If a 9 or other prefix is needed to place an outside call,
press the left most purple key to access the menu, and enter
the code 123662. Enter the desired prefix and follow the on
screen prompts.

·FlexClock Z18 is a simple and affordable time clock
using a proximity card reader.
·FlexClock Z23 and Z24 are simple and affordable time
clocks with a built-in fingerprint reader. (They function
the same, differing only in style and appearance).
Initial Setup
The FlexClock Vx-Series
Based on quality banking equipment from VeriFone®. All VxSeries clocks include a magstripe card reader, receipt printer,
and fully support analog dialup (land line) as an alternate
communication method. Options include:
·FlexClock Vx510 and Vx570 - Basic model with Ethernet,
Dialup, and a printer. The Vx570 can be mounted to the
wall with a wall mount while the Vx510 is meant for
tabletop use `only.
·FlexClock Vx510G - Offers a cellular connection instead
of Ethernet. Requires AC power or vehicle power.
·FlexClock Vx610 - Offers a cellular connection instead
All of the clock settings are retrieved from the timekeeping
server. This includes settings like the time and date, time
zone, Daylight Saving Time settings, etc.
Once the clock is connected to the network, you can press
the 9 key to force it to communicate.
If you receive the message “UNKNOWN SERIAL #”, it means
your account has not been set up on the server. Note that it
can take up to 10 minutes after the clock has been added to
the site for it to actually become active.

After you press 1 or 2, enter your PIN number, or swipe your
card.
Daylight Saving Time
Additional prompts (such as department, job, or tip
prompts) may appear. These are configured from the
timekeeping web site. The 4 and 5 keys can also be used
to clock “in” and “out”, if enabled from the web site. This
allows an alternate set of prompts to be shown to certain
employees. This feature is commonly used at restaurants.
For example, non-tipped employees may use these keys to
bypass a prompt that asks “enter total tips”. Contact your
service provider for more information.
Your clock automatically adjusts for Daylight Saving Time
(DST) as instructed by the server. The adjustment takes place
immediately when the clock reaches the designated time
(i.e. 2:00 AM).
Daylight Saving adjustments occur on a Sunday.
From Sunday through Tuesday, the clock will show a “DST
check mark” icon next to the time, to remind employees that
the DST correction has taken place.
TROUBLESHOOTING
The timekeeping website automatically performs
adjustments to ensure everything is correct. There should
rarely, if ever, be a need to adjust time cards - even if
employees worked overnight during the time change.
Troubleshooting Network Connection
If you live in an area that does not observe Daylight Saving
Time (such as Arizona), then the automatic adjustment is
disabled by your payroll provider from the web site.
CLOCKING IN & OUT
The time clock’s ability to transmit depends on your Internet
connection. If you are having trouble transmitting, ensure
your Internet connection is up and that it is connected to
the correct port on the clock (10BaseT for the Vx510 and the
unlabeled port for the Vx570).
Clocking in and out is simple: Press 1 to clock in. Press 2 to
clock out.
You can unplug the clock’s power at any time and plug it
back in to force it to acquire a new IP address using “DHCP”
You can always force the time clock to attempt to contact its
server at any time by pressing the 9 key.
