Ribbon Life
The ATR242 ribbon (39-0135-000) will typically last 3 months with 50 employees
punching 6 times per day (~18,000 punches). Actual ribbon life will vary based on
the number of punches, humidity, temperature, exposure to air.
Operational Battery Pack
The optional operational battery pack (58-0114-000) is a 12 cell NiMH (Nickel Metal
Hydride) battery pack that recharges when the ATR240 is plugged in. In the event
of a power failure the clock will instantly switch to battery power without any
interruption in service. The operational battery pack allows for full operation of the
clock. The LCD backlight is not activated when the clock is running on battery
power as a power saving feature, however the LCD display is plainly visible in a
lighted room.
Battery Pack Specs:
Voltage: DC 14.4v
Capacity: 1800mA
Standby mode: 30-36hr reserve power
Fully charged: 5 days use (300 punches/day)
Note: Actual battery life depends on many factors such as battery age, temperature,
discharge history, etc., and can vary greatly depending on these factors.
The ATR240 should be plugged in for 12 hours to fully charge the battery pack.
For more information see “Installing the Operational Battery Pack” in the Appendix.
Warning:
Batteries may leak, overheat, catch fire or explode if proper safety & handling
procedures are not followed:
• DO NOT get batteries wet
• DO NOT place batteries near heat sources
• DO NOT use any power supply other than the
original one supplied with the time recorder.
• DO NOT inverse polarity connection
• NEVER throw batteries into fire. Properly dispose of
batteries according to local rules and regulations.
• DO NOT allow anything to short circuit the batteries
•
Dropping a battery may damage the battery.
Replace the battery if you suspect any damage.

Re-setting Time Recorder to Factory Defaults
The "All-Reset" button on the internal control panel resets Time Recorder settings
such as date, time, print/display formats, to the factory defaults. See chart for factory
defaults. Note: The button is recessed to prevent accidentally resetting the Time
Recorder settings. Use the point of a pen or paperclip to access the button. It will
take approximately 9 seconds to complete the reset.

Frequently Asked Questions
1.
Q: The display does not work or parts of it do not work.
A: Possible Causes:
a. Motherboard is defective
b. The LCD display is defective.
Correction: Contact your local dealer or Acroprint for repair.
2.
Q: Can my clock calculate the pay period total?
A: No. The ATR240 does not offer time total calculation.
3.
Q: Why does the clock keep rejecting the time card?
A: Check to see if the correct side of the Time Card is inserted. If Time Card
Recognition is turned on your Monthly Time Card must be inserted with the
current date on the front side. If you are using a Weekly Time Card make
sure Time Card Recognition is turned off.
4.
Q: Why didn’t the time recorder setting I changed not work?
A: Make sure you press [P6] after you enter your setting.
10
5.
Q: Why is my clock printing on the wrong row?
A: - Make sure the date is set correctly.
- Make sure the “End of Day” time is set correctly.
- For Weekly pay periods make sure the "End Day of
Pay Period" is set correctly.
- Make sure the Pay Period type is is set correctly.
6. Q: I can’t get my clock to print for any employees. It just
keeps giving an “err” message.
A: Make sure the display time is synchronized to the RTC
time.

Maintenance
Replacing the Ribbon Cassette
1. Open clock cover. Press [P3] to move the print head to the center of the clock so
that the ribbon cassette can be more easily accessed.
2. Pull the ribbon holder tabs towards you to unlock the ribbon cassette and use the
handle on top of the ribbon to pull the cassette out.
3. Insert replacement ribbon. Make sure to feed the ribbon over the black ribbon
guide and slide the ribbon down between the guide and the silver print shield.
Push the ribbon down until it clicks into place. Turn the ribbon knob clockwise to
remove any slack in the ribbon.
11
Replacing the Circuit Board Batteries
The ATR240 is equipped with (1) CR2032 3v Lithium Coin Cell battery on the Main
board. The battery should last approximately 1.5 to 2 years under normal operating
conditions. Do not attempt to replace the battery as it will void your warranty. If
your clock is already out of warranty you can attempt to replace the batteries yourself
but note that you could damage the board if you short out any components on the
circuit board. Avoid using metal objects to remove the batteries.
Note: all Time Recorder settings will be reset to factory defaults as soon as the Main
board battery is removed.
Back Case
Front Case
Main Board Battery
1. Unplug clock.
2. Remove the front cover and the two screws that connect the front and back case.
Remove the front case and lay it flat being careful not to pull any wires or cables
loose.
3. To remove batteries press the metal retaining clip away from the battery. The
battery should pop up. It may be necessary to use a small probe to pop the battery
out.
4. Replace the batteries and re-assemble clock.
12
Installing the Operational Battery Pack
First unplug the clock. The door to the battery pack compartment is located on the
bottom edge of the back of the clock. Remove the screw that secures the door.
The door may be tightly fitted. Insert a thin knife blade under the bottom of the door
at the screw end and rotate the blade to open the door.
Ext. Signal Device
Connector
Power Connector
Battery Compartment Cover
Insert Blade Here
Connect the battery cable to the connector on the left side of the compartment. Note
that the two ridges on the side of the battery connector should be facing down to line
up with the slots in the clock’s power connector. Turn the battery so that the cable
connection is on the bottom. Insert the battery pack into the clock with the wires
inserted into the opening in the side of the compartment. This is important since the
battery door can’t be attached if the battery is sitting on top of the wires. You may
need to use something like a pencil or ruler to push the wires into the opening.
Attach the door by inserting the door tabs into the left side of the compartment and
firmly rotating the door into place. If the door won’t close check to make sure the
wires aren’t under the battery. Plug in the power supply once the battery door is
secure. The ATR240 should be plugged in for 12 hours to fully charge the battery
pack.
Cleaning the ATR240
Do not use cleaning products that contain alcohol or other strong chemicals as they
could discolor or crack the terminal housing. Use a soft damp cloth to remove dirt.
Wipe dry.

Appendix
Connecting External Signal Devices (Bells & Horns)
The connections for an external signal device (bells, horns, buzzers, chimes, etc.),
are made via a 2-wire Green terminal block on the back of the clock above the power
jack. Connections are made by pressing the orange wire release tabs below each
wire hole, fully inserting the wire and releasing the clip. Gently pull on the wires to
make sure they are firmly secured in the terminal block.
In order to use a bell or horn a relay is required. Please call Acroprint or your Dealer
to order the relay (PN 01-0230-000).
When a signal is activated by the clock the internal contacts of the relay close and
complete the circuit. These internal contacts are "dry" and supply no voltage.
Voltage applied to these contacts must not exceed 30 volts. The relay then activates
the 120v external signal device such as:
65-0103-000 "Grille Horn"
65-0104-000 "4-1/4" Bell"
65-0105-000 "8" Bell"
For more information about connecting an external signal device using a relay go to
http://support.acroprint.com
Under “Time Clocks & Document Stamps” click on “ATR240 Time Clock” and
download 06-0346-000 “Connecting an External Signal Device.”

Wall Mounting Instructions
The ATR240 can be placed on a table or desk and it can also be mounted to a wall.
A mounting template is included with the documents for the ATR240. If you misplace
the template you can download it at:
http://support.acroprint.com
Under “Time Clocks & Document Stamps”, click on “ATR240 Time Clock”.
Follow the instructions on the template to mount the clock.
