Badge Reader Features


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.

Durable Construction:

The TSI-715 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.

2×16 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 TSI-715 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 TSI-715 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 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
