The industry’s most reliable biometric just got better. The HandPunch® GT-400 brings the flexibility of a full-function time and attendance terminal together with versatile proximity, smart, and multi-technology credential reader options. Now your employees can clock-in using the same card they use to enter your building. With a multi-technology reader module embedded inside, the HandReader contains both 125 kHz proximity and 13.56 MHz contactless smart card capability, and supports ISO standard 14443 technology.

The MTR-G embedded reader module provides compatibility with HID® proximity, GE/CASI ProxLite®, AWID® proximity, LENEL® proximity, and many 13.56 MHz smart card technologies, including our aptiQ™ smart credentials. If you upgrade your existing card based access control system from proximity to smart technology, our hand reader can upgrade with you. Additionally, aptiQ™ smart technology is NFC (near field communication) compatible and able to communicate with NFC-enabled phones whenever you’re ready to take that step.

The HandPunch GT-400 uses the size and shape of your employee’s hand to verify their identity each time they punch. No fingerprints or palm prints are utilized, ensuring the privacy of each user. The terminal is fast and easy for anyone to use. And it eliminates buddy punching (when one employee clocks in for another), helping you save money.

The HandPunch GT-400 uses an open architecture design coupled with standard features like a large display, programmable soft function keys and Ethernet connectivity to set a new standard in terminal.

What is Hand Geometry?

Hand geometry measures the size and shape of a person’s hand, including length, width, thickness, and surface area to verify the person’s identity. In conjunction with a PIN number or the swipe of a card, the enrolled individual can punch in for work. Hand readers do not read fingerprints or palm prints.  
• “Buddy Punching”, i.e. punching in for someone else, is eliminated since credentials cannot be duplicated
• Hand geometry accurately identifies the user even if his or her hand is dirty, wet or injured, or if the device is damp, dusty or dirty
• No fingerprint or palm print is stored in the device
• Data is not shared with any outside agencies or companies
• Verification takes place in about one second
• Since the “credential” cannot be lost or stolen there is no cost to replace lost, damaged or stolen cards
