Preface
Honourable customers,
Thanks for choosing products of this company. T50, with world cutting edge
technologiesfingerprint recognition, computer communication, as well as
microelectronics, is considered to be combination of three technologies: electronics,
optics and computer communication. It is no doubt that it has become the first choice of
standalone time & attendance for enterprises with its strong function and veracity.
Please read this user manual carefully to have an initial understanding of functions and
basic knowledge of installation, debugging, maintenance, application and management
to better use this product.
Utilizing the state-of-the-art biometric tech, this product will bring unprecedented
reliability, convenience and benefits to the top management of enterprise in HR.

Fingerprint T&A Advantages
Veracity
Record and reflect employees attendance conditions equally, correctly and
promptly.
Checking on work attendance by passwords and cards (paper card, magnetic card,
IC card, etc.); It is hard to avoid buddy-punching and cannot reflect the actual
attendance condition. With the help of fingerprint recognition attendance, it is easy to
solve all the problems like buddy punching, card loss or stolen and password forgetting.
Thus, HR dispute is avoided and the justness of time attendance is materialized.
Convenience
It is more convenient to use fingerprint standalone units with no card reader or
attendance cards needed, no worrying about cards loss or damage, no need to do
system maintenance, and saving time and money.
Only placing enrolled finger on the sensor surface, system will check users
automatically and record the correct time and checking status.
Full Function
The system can realize different functions such as attendance remark, calculation
and report printing. The remark can be made for reasons such as business leave,
absence, marriage holiday and etc.; the checking and calculation can be made in
accordance with different time periods, departments, individual or combination due to
various reasons for absence; the report generation and printing function can be realized
perfectly.
Flexible Shift Maintenance
The software supports shift on week basis, rotation shifts etc. Various shifts, public
holidays, individual leave and overtime are available to meet the complicated needs of
every enterprise.
Standalone
The machine can work without connecting to PC, convenient in operation and no
need to occupy any extra resource.
Network management
Many units can be connected through network via TCP/IP for easy management in
central software.

Software operation flowchart
(Important chapter please read carefully)

This software includes: System parameter, department management, employee
maintenance, shift management, employee leave and statistic report etc. Then how to
use this system in a right way? It is far from enough to understand only the function of
each module but to know the connections between them and the system operation
flowchart. Thus, a correct report can be generated.
Software operation flowchart can be described in brief as follows:




















1When the software is run for the first time, please set parameters including
company name, time attendance rule, statistic rule for early, late and overtime etc., leave
class. When the setting is completed, it is usually not needed to be modified unless the

4

management rules of this company changes.
2Normally there are many departments in one company and all departments
need to be entered manually unlike the directly import of employee. Department setting
should be completed before employee maintenance.
3 When the software is used for the first time, please make a Text file (*. txt) or
MS Excel file (*.xls) for company employee in accordance with certain format. For the
format, please refer to [import employee list] so that all employee can be import to the
system at one time. Employee can be added, deleted, modified and transferred to new
department during future use.
4 First add the proper timetable (from on-duty time to off-duty time) according to
the company rule and then set shifts.
5After the shift setting is completed, it will work until shift is allocated to employee.
Each employee can only have one shift. Please note the starting date of the shift. After
the allocation of the shift, the arranged working date and time can be seen clearly for
each employee.
6Transaction records are stored in the time attendance unit. Please download the
records from the unit before report calculation. In addition, employee information and
fingerprint templates can be uploaded and downloaded between the unit and the
computer. Please refer to Background management for detailed information.
7There is always employee away for business, asking for leave and forgetting
clock happening in a company. Once it occurs, please deal with it in time in the software
to ensure the correctness of the statistic report.
8After all the above mentioned operation is done, the calculation of report can be
operated. The report can calculate the time attendance status of all employee or a
certain employee from a certain department in a certain time period.
In[Attendance Calculating and report], first please select the starting and ending
date of the employee, click Calculate and the system will calculate automatically and
check the validity of the records. (There are some invalid records during the use of the
unit. For instance, if one employee presses the finger twice during a very short time
period, one of the records will be regarded as invalid.) If there is any error in the software
calculation, admin can also modify manually to ensure the correctness of the result
Please note: From the above flowchart, we can see that if there is an error in

5

calculation report for one employee, the possible reasons are as follows:
Employee shift or temporary shift is incorrect.
Exceptions such as employee away for business/ask for leave/forgetting clock in/out
is incorrect.
Checking and calculation of transaction records is incorrect.

5.2 System Menu
5.2.1 Parameters Setting
Basic Parameters:


Unit name will be deemed as the head of departments list.
[A working day count as X minutes] means A valid workday is the time range from
time period 1 (On duty) to time period 2 (Off duty), and the default value for a valid
workday is 480 minutes (8 hours). Please note the calculation is by minute.
[Not clock in count as late X minutes]: If the check box minutes calculated as
coming late if no clock in is selected, calculation for no clock in will be regarded as
coming late minutes. If the check box is not selected, calculation for no clock in will be
regarded as absent from work.
[Not clock out count as earlier X minutes]: If the check box minutes calculated as
leaving early if no clock out is selected, calculation for no clock out will be regarded
as leaving early minutes. If the check box is not selected, calculation for no clock out
will be regarded as absent from work.
[On duty X minutes earlier clock-in count as overtime]: Calculation is by minute.
2. Input your company name that will be
deemed as the head of departments list.
4. Click [OK] to save
3. Set the Common Rule
1. Click [System][Parameters Settings]

55

This option will be effective before valid work time set. For example: If it is set be 60
minutes and on duty time is set be 09:00, then clock in records after 08:00 will be
regarded as overtime work. If the clock in time is 07:40, then overtime work will be
calculated as 80 minutes.
[Off duty X minutes later clock-out count as overtime]: Calculation is by minute.
This option will be effective after valid work time set. For example: If it is set be 60
minutes and off duty time is set be 17:00, then clock out records after 18:00 will be
regarded as overtime work. If the clock out time is 18:20, then overtime work will be
calculated as 80 minutes.
[Deduct the On duty X minutes earlier]: Calculation is by minute. This option will be
effective after valid work time set. For example: On duty time is set be 09:00, also set
[clock-in time earlier than on-duty time is counted as overtime] be 30 minutes.
Then if one employee clock-in time is 08:00, if also choose [deduct the clock-in 'x
minutes earlier'], then the actual overtime is 30 minutes; if not choose, then the actual
overtime is 60 minutes.
[Deduct the Off duty X minutes later]: Calculation is by minute. This option will be
effective after valid work time set. For example: Off duty time is set be 17:00, also set
[clock-out time later than off-duty time is counted as overtime] be 30 minutes.
Then if one employee clock-out time is 18:00, if also choose [deduct the clock-out
'x minutes later'], then the actual overtime is 30 minutes; if not choose, then the actual
overtime is 60 minutes.

56

Stat. Rules: This page describes the stat. rules of items: normal, late, early,
business leave, leave, absence, overtime, free overtime.

Accumulate by times: Only calculate the total times, display the accumulated times
in report.
Round at total: Add up the total time and then round according to corresponding
unit.
Round down: Abandon the decimal regardless it is. For example, if the minimum
calculation unit is 1 day, if the accumulated time is 1.1 days or 1.9 days, the result of
calculation is 1 day.
Round up: Add one unit regardless the decimal is. For example, if the minimum
calculation unit is 1 day, if the accumulated time is 1.1 days or 1.9 days, the result of
calculation is 2 day.
Round off: If the decimal is equal to or over 0.5, add one unit, or else, abandon it.

5.4.2 Timetable and Shift
The relationship between shift and timetables:
Shift setup should be done in two steps: First, setup necessary timetables. Second,
setup shifts. One or more timetables can be included in one shift.
Timetable is the time period between On-duty and Off-duty required in the
company rule. For instance, the company rule requires the working hours be
08:00-12:00 and 13:00-17:00; so 08:00-12:00 and 13:00-17:00 are two timetables. If
such a shift needs to be setup, these two timetables should be setup first. Here, we use
time table morning to indicate 08:00-12:00 and time table afternoon to indicate
13:00-17:00; so two timetables have been setup. (Please refer to the following
chapter for details of how to add time tables) and then we can add a shift such as
Normal shift in which shift cycle and cycle unit will be setup. Then we should add
two timetables - morning and afternoon so that a shift setup is completed. Brief
introduction is mentioned here for you to get a general picture of the relationship
between timetable and shift. The details of shift setup will be found in the next two
sections.

76


Note: Every item should be setup in timetables with no blank left.
[Begin Clock-in Time] and [End Clock-in Time] setup the valid time period for
clock-in. Records out of this time range will be treated as invalid ones. For instance
[Begin Clock-in Time] is 07:00 and [End Clock-in Time] is 13:00. If clock-in record is
07:01 or 12:59, they are valid records but if clock-in record is 06:59, it is invalid.
Besides, [Begin Clock-in Time] and [End Clock-in Time] can be more than one day
(meaning [End Clock-in Time] can be before [Begin Clock-in Time]) but it cant be
longer than 24 hours.
[Late error allowance] means how many minutes after [On duty] are treated as
late, [Early error allowance] means how many minutes before [End Clock-in Time] are
treated as early; [Count as work day] and [Count as work time XXX minutes] are used
in calculating business leave, leave, absence and overtime.
Checking [Must C-In] and [Must C-out] or not will affect the result of calculation. If
[Must C-In] is checked and the timetable is included of Employee As shift, he will be
either considered absence or treated according to [Not clock in count as late XXX
minutes] in [Parameter Settings] If he didnt clock in or ask for leave. Otherwise, even if
there is off duty record for him only, his attendance will be treated as normal.
