ZK-TX628 timeclock
This guide is intended to provide you with a quick setup and operations guide for the
ZKTeco TX628 stand-alone timeclock.
This device is not suitable for multiple entry/exit points without expensive additional software, but can
be used where staff are geographically separated (different branch, depot etc.)
You *may* have a CD included with your timeclock, however the software and documentation it
contains are barely usable and not required to use the TX628 with your payroll.
TX628 timeclock
This clock records the fingerprint characteristics (biometrics) of each user, and can also
have an RFID card or key fob assigned if preferred (the administrator should have a card
assigned so that the system can be controlled using the card when the administrator is
The TX628 can hold up to 3200 fingerprints and 80000
attendance transactions.
All setting operations are easily done using the [M/OK]
button and by selecting actions displayed on the colour
screen by using the arrow keys and the [M/OK] or [ESC]
Attendance data is exported via the USB port, then
imported into SmoothPay for payroll processing.
PLEASE make sure you backup your clock after any setup operation to protect the
contents in case of any device failure. We also recommend you backup your clock after
collecting time entries (both operations are performed directly to a connected USB drive
(data stick).
