Hardware Installation
Use the following instructions to place your time clock in the desired location and to
install communications with the clock. Follow the instructions below that correspond
with the type of communication that your clock uses.
Note: See page 6 for instructions on installing the V850 Cellular Modem Clock.
The clock should be placed in a convenient location where employees typically enter and
exit the work area. It includes a mounting plate with four holes. Mounting screws are
included. Once the mounting plate is attached to the wall and all cables are connected, the
clock¶s face can be slid into place and secured to the mounting plate.
7. The clock is shipped with the mounting plate attached. Remove the mounting
plate from the clock and attach it to the wall with the provided mounting screws.
The flat side should face to the left, with the rounded side facing to the right.
Note: Removing the metal mounting plate from the back of the time clock will
not void your hardware warranty.
7. Connect the power cord to the bottom of the clock and plug it into the closest
available electrical (110-120 VAC) outlet.
Note: It is highly recommended that you place the time clock on a battery backup
or surge protector. Power surges can permanently damage the clock.
7. Connect the clock¶s communications cable. Use the instructions below that
correspond with your clock¶s communication type.
Ethernet Clocks
• The Ethernet port is located in the top center of the back of the clock. Plug
one end of the Standard Category 5 (CAT5) cable into the Ethernet port.
• Connect the other end of the CAT5 cable to your network. The cable used
to connect the clock must be a straight-through cable, not a crossover. To
tell the difference between a straight-through and a crossover cable, hold
the connectors side by side, with the same side of each connector facing
you.
Look at the wires inside of the connector. If the colors of the wires run in
identical order from left to right in both connectors, the cable is a straightthrough. If the colors run in opposite order, the cable is a crossover.
Serial Clocks
• Connect the RJ-11 connector of the cable (the one that looks like a phonejack) into the right side port on the bottom center of the time clock.
• Connect the RS-232 end of the cable (the 9-pin D-Connector) into an
available serial port on your computer.
Note: Serial clocks can also be connected through a USB port using a
Keyspan USB to serial adapter.

Configuring the Cellular Modem Clock
The Cellular Modem Clock is used to collect time & attendance data in an environment
where no Ethernet, serial or modem connection is available. The clock uses a cellular
connection to a GSM network to communicate.
Note: The only mobile phone companies that currently support this type of
communication are Cingular and T-Mobile.
The time clock is connected to a cellular modem device via a specially configured serial
cable. A cellular service provider SIM card is installed in the cellular modem, allowing it
to access the GSM network for time clock communications.
Once a connection has been established, the GSM network changes the communication
method from a phone call to an Ethernet connection. The clock provides the GSM
network with the IP address and the port to the Qqest hosted server. Once a connection to
the server has been established, all further communication between the clock, GSM
network and Qqest Server is TCP/IP.
Hardware Installation
The clock should be placed in a convenient location where employees typically
enter and exit the work area. It includes a mounting plate with four holes.
Mounting screws are included. A mounting clip is included to mount the cellular
modem device. Once the mounting plate and clip are attached to the wall and all
cables are connected, the clock¶s face can be slid into place and secured to the
mounting plate.
1. Attach the clock mounting plate to the wall with the provided mounting
screws.
2. Attach the cellular modem mounting clip to the wall using the provided
mounting screws. The clip should be mounted horizontally.

This option allows you to view your punches that are currently being stored by the time
clock. Use the ³Scroll dn´ and ³Scroll up´ keys to scroll through punches.

V800 / V850 Real Time Ethernet Clock
The Real Time Ethernet Clock is used when you would like your clock to upload any
stored data to the Clock Server automatically. This makes the process of manually
connecting to your time clock for the purpose of downloading its stored punches
unnecessary.
The clock automatically uploads any stored data to the Clock Server immediately upon
its entry into the clock. Manual data upload can also be selected.
Note: The following setup instructions are specific to the Real Time options. All other
ethernet setup steps are identical to the V850 Ethernet clock.
