The HandPunch 4000 brings the
flexibility of a full function time and
attendance terminal together with the
sophistication of the most accurate
identification technology available.
Using RSI’s field-proven hand geometry
biometric technology, the HandPunch
4000 uses the size and shape of your
employee’s hand to verify their identity
each time they punch. No fingerprints
or palm prints are utilized.
A cost-saving, easy-to-use solution
With the HandPunch 4000, your hand
is your badge. The cost of creating and
administering badges is eliminated
along with buddy punching. The system ensures payroll accuracy by simply
requiring each employee to be there to
punch. The terminal is fast and easy for
anyone to use. An
employee’s identity
is verified in less
than one second.
An important HR communication tool
More than a simple time and attendance
terminal, the HandPunch 4000 lets you
tailor the system to meet your precise
needs. The system provides the ability
to send messages to employees when
they punch. In addition, employees can
view up to 24 information fields to find
out about their schedule, total hours
worked, and more.

10 Programmable Data
Management Keys
Ten user-definable data management keys let you collect and/or display data
as employees punch. Common data collection uses include department
transfers, tips collected, job codes, or pay codes. The keys can also be
defined to allow employees to review punches or find out about their
schedules, vacation time accumulated, hours worked, and other programmed
information. To reduce keystrokes, the keys can also be set to automatically
enter data such as a frequently used department number or in/out status.
Other data management key features include:
•Employee messaging
•Review of employee information fields
•Validation tables to ensure proper data entry
•Restrict employee access to specific data management keys
•User defined prompts
•Multi-level input sequences definable per key
•Decision menus to minimize keystrokes
Schedules by Employee
Employee schedules may be downloaded to the HandPunch 4000 to restrict the times that an
employee can punch. This can reduce unauthorized overtime as well as early “in” punches.
A separate schedule can be defined for each employee providing the ultimate in flexibility.
Built-in Bar Code Reader
Some installations require the use of a badge. For these situations, the HandPunch 4000
includes an integrated bar code reader that can be used for ID number entry. The swipe-type
reader supports the most popular bar code formats and allows for infrared badges.
Communications and Networking
Whether your needs are to network two terminals or thousands, the HandPunch 4000 can
be configured to meet your needs. Standard RS-485 communications makes networking
terminals easy and reliable. Options include an Ethernet Communications Module and a high
speed internal modem for remote sites. Each unit also provides RS-232 serial printer support.
Edit-at-the-Clock Functions
The system allows supervisors to override user restrictions and to input such items as missed
punches, planned vacations, sick time, etc. The password-protected mode provides greater
supervisor flexibility by lessening the need for computer edits. Audit trails are available to
ensure security.
Bell Schedules
The bell schedule lets you program the day, time, and duration of a series of bells. The bells
can be programmed to signal the beginning or end of a shift, lunch, or break.
Door Control
The HandPunch 4000 provides the capability to unlock and monitor a door. An employee’s
individual schedule may be used to restrict access.
Note: Some time and attendance software packages may not have implemented all of these features in their system software.
