Badge Reader Overview


Time Systems International’s TSI-715 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 TSI-715 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 TSI-715 guarantees accurate, reliable input.  Employees simply enter information through the TSI-715’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 TSI-715 and your computer is accomplished by one of Time Systems International’s polling and programming utilities or integrated time and attendance systems. The TSI-715 automatically transfers data to your computer. In turn, the computer is used to program the TSI- 715. Each of the TSI-715’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 TSI-715 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 TSI-715 collects this data and transfers it to your computer via RS232 serial, RS485 LAN, internal dial-up  modem or Ethernet communications.

The TSI-715 is constructed of injection-molded plastic that provides a tough, yet lightweight and attractive case. The TSI-  715’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 TSI-715 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 TSI-715 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!
