Time America’s TA777/A Time & Data Terminal can record
employee time, monitor productivity, control access and
monitor inventory in a multitude of industries including
restaurants, hospitals, health care facilities, banks,
manufacturing, retail, hospitality, and many others.
The TA777/A 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 TA777/A guarantees accurate, reliable input. Employees
simply enter information through the TA777/A’s keypad, by
swiping a magnetic stripe or bar code badge. Employee
feedback is provided through audible accept/reject tones and
displayed messages.
Communication between the TA777/A and your computer is
accomplished by one of Time America’s polling and
programming utilities or integrated time and attendance
systems. The TA777/A automatically transfers data to your
computer. In turn, the computer is used to program the
Each of the TA777/A’s 8 function keys can be programmed to
ask up to four levels of information. Each piece of information
can be validated and stored in the terminal’s memory until
requested by the host computer. The TA777/A can be
programmed to prompt employees for data input, display
employee messages, validate job costing entries, restrict
employee punching via a schedule, regulate employee
access to restricted areas, control a bell and much more. The
TA777/A collects this data and transfers it to your computer
via RS232 serial, RS485 LAN, internal dial-up modem or
Ethernet communications.
The TA777/A’s metal construction provides a tough, yet
lightweight and attractive look. The TA777/A’s internal battery
provides full operation if power is lost.
What kind of data would you like to collect? Accurate tracking
and reporting of employee time is essential to determining
The TA777/A provides an easy and cost
effective means of gathering this type of data. If the data you
are after can be mag-striped, bar coded, or entered through a
keypad, the TA777/A can time stamp it, record it, and feed it
to your computer, while performing other tasks at the same
time. Put the power of automated data collection to use in
your business!

Eliminates the unavoidable errors associated with manually collected
Eight programmable functions: Each function key can be programmed to
collect up to four items of data, plus the initial employee I.D. and time
stamp. For example, after swiping his identification badge, an employee
could press function key 2 and be prompted to input a work order number,
part number, and then prompted to input a quantity. NOTE: Data input at
each level can be restricted to just the bar code, keypad, magnetic stripe, or
any combination.

Battery backed memory: The terminal contains a rechargeable back-up
battery which provides over 90 minutes of full operation during power
failure. A warning indicator light on the terminals keypad alerts you to
loss of line power. In addition, the TA777/A 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.

Data Input Validation: The TA777/A terminal eliminates key stroke errors
and increases job costing accuracy by allowing you to download tables of
valid entries. When an employee keys or swipes a number, it is compared
to the numbers you downloaded for validity.
The terminal will
correspondingly reject and accept entries, while optionally displaying the
particular item name.
Lockout Scheduling: Eliminate unauthorized overtime by scheduling
when employees can use the terminal. With this feature you can; lock out
tardiness, out early birds, and force late arrivals and early departures to
notify the supervisor in order to punch. You can also control punching by
time of day, by day of week and give specific messages to employees as to
why they were locked out. Supervisors may be allowed to override a
lockout. When used with access control you may set up time schedules for
employee access.
Available Options
Employee Messaging: After the employee enters their ID, the terminal can
display a 16-character message 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.
Ethernet Communications: With the optional internal Ethernet card, the
terminal can connected to any 10/100 Ethernet network
Modem Communications: With the optional internal Modem card, the
terminal can be located remote to the host location and dialed up using
standard telephone lines at a speed of 14.4 Baud
Signal Control: With the optional internal relay card, the terminal can
control a 12 Vdc, 1 A dry-contact circuit. The signal control relay can be
turned on by both a specific employee badge/number for access control or
by time of day for bell ringing. The duration time is also programmable.
Signal Control: With the TA777/A’s internal relay, the terminal can control
a 30 Vdc, 1 A dry-contact circuit. The signal control relay can be turned on
by both a specific employee badge/number for access control or by time of
day for bell ringing. The duration time is also programmable.
Wi-Fi Wireless Communications: The TA777/A’s wireless card allows the
777 to communicate over a standard 802.11b network. The wireless
network must be configured with an IP address, gateway, subnet, and
WEP key (if available).
Strict Manufacturing Standards: Time America's TA777/A data
collection terminals have been tested for optimal reliability. A high MTBF
ensures virtually uninterrupted performance. The sealed keypad and the
unique ergonomic design reduce maintenance costs. The terminals are
certified to CE and are manufactured to ISO-9001.
P.O.E (Power over Ethernet): The TA7777/A has the optional capability of
drawing its power from the Ethernet communications line (Ethernet line
must support POE). This eliminates the need for high voltage power at the
terminal location.
External Reader: The TA777/A has two reader ports to connect external
devices such as a Bar Code gun or an Access Control Swipe Reader that
could be mounted outside a door.
