Power & Flexibility

TAs TA785 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 TA785 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 TA785 guarantees accurate, reliable input. Employees simply enter information through the TA785s keypad, by swiping a magnetic stripe, bar code, or proximity badge. In addition, the TA785s Biometric capability supports multiple types of fingerprint sensors. Employee feedback is provided through audible accept/reject tones and displayed messages.

Communication between the TA785 and your computer is accomplished by one of TAs polling and programming utilities or integrated time and attendance
systems. The TA785 automatically transfers data to your computer. In turn, the computer is used to program the TA785. Each of the TA785s 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 terminals memory until requested by the host computer. The TA785 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 TA785 collects this data and transfers it to your
computer via RS232 serial, RS485 LAN, internal dial-up modem or Ethernet communications, whether wired or wireless.

The TA785 is constructed of injection-molded plastic that provides a tough, yet lightweight and attractive case. The TA785s 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 TA785 provides an easy and cost effective means of gathering this type of data. If the data youre after can be mag-striped, bar coded, proximity encoded, entered through a keypad or biometrically identified, the TA785 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!
