Time and Attendance Timeclocks Now Available with Choice of RFID Technologies

June 24, 2009, Tucson, Arizona. Intelligent Instrumentation announces the release of a new RFID proximity reader on their LANpoint TIME timeclock computers. The LANpoint TIME networked timeclocks now include the iCLASS 13.56MHz radio frequency identification proximity reader option. Integral autoID reader options now include infrared barcode, visible red barcode, magnetic stripe, HID 125kHz RFID, HID 13.56MHz iCLASS RFID, combinations of readers, and keyboard-only/without AutoID reader.

The new autoID choice expands the employee badge options of LANpoint timeclock users. The iCLASS reader can read much more data than the 125kHz RFID reader, at a much faster rate. iCLASS technology provides versatile interoperability and supports multiple applications such as biometric authentication, cashless vending and PC log on security. iCLASS smart cards and readers make time-and-attendance and access control more powerful, more versatile, and offers enhanced security through encryption and mutual authentication.

These rugged WiFi Ethernet IEEE802.11b/g LANpoint TIME timeclocks have no moving parts that require maintenance and wear out. Their compact NEMA 12 (IP54) housings keep out water and dust, allowing for installation in environmentally harsh conditions. They have onboard non-volatile storage expandable to 1GB or more, and include the industrial features, connectivity and scalability demanded by employees and IT professionals alike. Web-enabled system administration tools, a wide range of software programmability, and a full selection of installation, mounting and AutoID add-on accessories and options make for unparalleled ease of implementation and system management.

LANpoint TIME timeclocks include the Windows CE Operating system, featuring the familiar Windows WIN32 API environment that allows developers the convenience of using their existing desktop development skills with Microsoft's development tools for creating custom managed-code solutions in Visual Basic.NET, Visual C#.NET and eMbedded Visual C++. Development tools that can be utilized include Visual Studio.NET 2003, Visual Studio.NET 2005, and Visual Studio.NET 2008.
