Power & Flexibility

Time America’s TA715 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 TA715 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 TA715 guarantees accurate, reliable input. Employees simply enter information through the TA715’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 TA715 and your computer is accomplished by one of Time America’s polling and programming utilities or integrated time and attendance systems. The TA715 automatically transfers data to your computer. In turn, the computer is used to program the TA715. Each of the TA715’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 TA715 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 TA715 collects this data and transfers it to your computer via RS232 serial, RS485 LAN, internal dial-up modem or Ethernet communications.
The TA715 is constructed of injection-molded plastic that provides a tough, yet lightweight and attractive case. The TA715’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 productivity. The TA715 provides an easy and cost effective means of gathering this type of data. If the data you’re after can be mag-striped, bar coded, or entered through a keypad, the TA715 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!

Details

Eight programmable functions: Each function key can be programmed to collect up to four items of data, plus the initial employee ID 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.
Durable Construction: The TA715 is constructed of injection molded plastic, which, pound for pound is stronger than steel, yet lightweight and attractive. The terminals have a dome membrane keypads, which create a watertight seal against external elements, including a spilt cup of coffee. Also comes with an integrated wall-mounting bracket.
2x16 Character LCD Backlit Display: The terminal comes with a highly advanced filtered LCD display. This means that under almost any lighting condition the terminal will give you a clear picture. The terminal supports characters such as <space>.
Battery backed memory: The terminal contains a rechargeable back-up battery which provides over 40 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 TA715 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 TA715 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. Employees may also be restricted from entering unauthorized departments on an individual basis.
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.
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.
Strict Manufacturing Standards: Time America's TA715 data collection terminals have been tested for optimal reliability. A high MTBF ensures virtually uninterrupted performance. The sealed keypad and the unique agronomical design reduce maintenance costs. The terminals are certified to CE and are manufactured to ISO-9001.
