HandPunch 3000e Biometric



The HandPunch 3000e Hand Scanner Terminal provides the accuracy and convenience of biometric technology.

In operations from Coal Mines to Clean Rooms, the system has proven to be a practical and precise solution.

There are no cards to create, administer, carry – or lose. The HandPunch 3000e verifies employee identities in less than one second, based on the unique size of their hands.

HandPunch 3000e clearly notifies each user of a match using red and green indicator lights.

Because no one can punch in or out for your employees, the system reduces time theft and improves payroll accuracy.




Hand-Scanner-Terminal_02The HandPunch 3000e Hand Scanner Terminal offers optional Ethernet connectivity and multiple memory upgrades to grow with your company’s needs. In addition it also includes:

  • Edit-at-the-Clock Functions
  • Bell Schedules
  • Door Control
  • The ability to connect multiple units at a single site

When you want to cut time and attendance costs…do it by hand.



Hand Geometry Technology in the Hand Scanner Terminal

The HandPunch 3000e uses field-proven hand geometry biometric technology. The terminal captures a three-dimensional image of the hand each time the employee punches. The hand’s size and the shape are used to verify their identity with unparalleled accuracy. No fingerprints or palm prints are utilized. Green and red lights notify the employee of the status of each punch. There’s no question any more; employees have to be there to punch.

Communication Options

The HandPunch 3000e, designed for larger networked installations, allows multiple units to be connected at a site via Ethernet 10 Base-T (TCP/IP)

Bell Schedules

The bell schedule lets you program the day, time, and duration of a series of bells. The bells can be programmed to signal the beginning or end of a shift, lunch, or break.

Door Control

The HandPunch 3000e Hand Scanner Terminal provides the capability to unlock and monitor a door. Global time zones may be used to restrict employee access.
