A time clock is a device used by businesses to track and record the working hours of employees. The machine is a valuable tool for managing employee attendance, making sure that payroll processing is accurate, and conforming to labor laws and regulations. For example, businesses use time clocks to document employee attendance, track down patterns of lateness or absenteeism, and find any attendance-related issues. Payroll processing departments use time clock data to calculate employee wages and benefits. This ensures that employees are paid for the hours they work. Furthermore, businesses use time clocks to comply with labor laws and regulations by using time clock data to confirm that employees are not working past their allotted hours, and that overtime is properly accounted for.
Here is a list of our top 5 time clocks:
1. Amano MJR-8000N Time Clock
Our Amano MJR-8000N Time Clock calculates hours worked, and can total hours for up to 250 employees. It is used in conjunction with our Amano MJR-8000 Time Cards. When an employee is ready to start their shift, they can insert their Amano MJR-8000 Time Card in the time clock’s slot. At the end of their shift, employees can repeat the process. This time clock will record clocking in and clocking out on the time card, and can even print names. The recorded times on the card can be used to determine employees’ wages, benefits, and overtime hours.
The time clock eliminates manual calculation errors, and automatically advances year, month, date, and Daylight Saving Time, and accommodates weekly, bi-weekly, semi-monthly, and monthly pay periods. A feature of the Amano MJR-8000N Time Clock is that it can make a brief, easy-to-read attendance report for the current pay period. This report can be used for workforce management and decision making. The device comes with a built-in battery backup that protects the clock and program data for up to 72 hours during power failure.
2. Amano EX-3500N Time Clock
Our Amano EX-3500N Time Clock is a top-load, semi-automatic time clock that is used to record and track employee working hours. The time clock has a top-loading mechanism that requires users to insert their time cards at the top of the device to clock in and out. This design can be more convenient than other time clock designs because it eradicates the need for users to bend or twist their cards when inserting them into a time clock slot.
The time clock has semi-automatic operation. This means that while the user of the device has to manually insert their time card, the time clock automatically prints the time and date on the card once it is inserted. On the other hand, the user of manual time clocks has to manually stamp their time by pushing a lever or button after putting the time card in. Other facets of the Amano EX-3500N Time Clock are that it has simple programming and operation, prints time in regular or military time, has two color printing to show irregular time, and has a high-quality dot matrix printer for clean, clear printing.
3. Amano PR-600 Watchman's Time Clock
Our Amano PR-600 Watchman's Time Clock is an electronic device used to track the activities and movements of watchmen, security guards, or personnel that are in charge of patrolling specific areas or premises during their shifts. A watchman’s time clock system is made up of time clocks placed at different locations throughout the patrol area that are labeled for identification. Watchmen follow a patrol route that involves visiting each time clock location in a particular order.
The time clocks come with keys, which are used by watchmen. By inserting their key into a time clock, the watchmen leave a mark, or record a timestamp on a paper tape inside the time clock. A manager reviews the paper tape from the time clocks to make sure that the watchmen followed their assigned patrol route and finished their rounds on time. An advantage of our Amano PR-600 Watchman’s Time Clock is that the paper tape from the time clock documents whether the patrol was carried out as planned.
The time clock does not require an ink ribbon, and it uses carbonless paper that leaves a clear imprint. There are 99 station keys available, and the master key can restrict access to record tape and time. The product comes with a lock box to prevent loss of station keys. It is compatible with Microsoft Vista. In addition, it has a built-in battery that, when fully charged, maintains normal operations for 62 hours (which is equivalent to 400 prints).
4. Amano MJR-7000 Time Clock
Our Amano MJR-7000 Time Clock is a computerized time recorder that provides error-free payroll preparation by automatically adding up employee hours. It is used together with our Amano MJR-7000 Time Cards. In fact, the machine can total hours for up to 100 employees, and is suitable for medium-sized companies. It accurately tracks time by tracking employee work hours minute by the minute, which decreases the likelihood of errors or time theft.
The Amano MJR-7000 Time Clock has a digital display screen that shows the time, and allows employees to clock in and out. The time clock’s ribbon cartridge is easy to replace, and saves time. The device has programmable zones for late arrival or early departure. There are even exception marks to identify tardiness and overtime, and simple data correction. Finally, there is automatic break deduction, and the time clock is able to round in/out times.
5. Amano BX-1500 Time Clock
Our Amano BX-1500 Time Clock is a top-load, semi-automatic time clock that has a large, easy-to-read quartz clock dial. Users can conveniently load their time cards or sheets at the top of the device as opposed to loading them from the front or side like other time clocks. It has a dot matrix printing mechanism to mark the time and date information on the time cards. There is a surface detection function for correct printing position. The time clock prints time in regular or military time, AM or PM, 0-23 hours, minutes, tenths, or hundredths.
The Amano BX-1500 Time Clock and its programming data can operate for 3 years without electric AC (alternating current) power through use of battery power. The device automatically feeds, prints, and ejects cards. In addition, the time clock has push button alignment for in and out registration. There are 6 print columns that can record 3 “ins” and 3 “outs” per day. There is easy out-of-the box setup, and the clock can be placed on a table, or mounted on a wall after it is assembled.
