Terminal for Time & Attendance * Recording, Access Control and Production
Time is Money.
Do Control Time.
PROX+ can't be stopped.
is the top of our range of terminals. A tough steel casing, a large keypad, a
very legible display, a generous number of I/O and communications ports make PROX+
the ideal terminal for the most demanding applications. Compact, versatile and
very resistant, PROX+ is easy to use while offering a high degree of programmability.
Users can activate programmes and procedures simply by pressing a key. Messages
on the clear display and the beeper will guide them through the different stages
of a procedure.
PROX+ can function on-line or in stand-alone mode. Its robustness
and functional design make it ideal for managing transactions in an industrial
It is suitable in any situation in general where reliable data
collection and control is needed.
or alphanumeric keyboard.
- 128KB base memory for memorising
up to 14000 transactions.
- Internal Ethernet interface - optional.
- Internal and/or external readers for: barcodes (EAN, I2/5, C39),
magnetic stripe cards ISO track 2 (track 1 or 3 on request), proximity
cards, biometric devices, etc.
- In the event of a power failure,
its optimised battery management and different energy levels ensure autonomous
operation for up to 24 hours spread over a number of days. It retains data for
5 years (RAMCard option).
- Easy definition of custom data collection
procedures for WIP control or other industrial requirements.
can control up to 31 satellites - TRAX+, MAX, IOX or other PROX+'s - or
alien terminals, on a multipoint RS485 line, collecting and managing their data.
- On-line or off-line operation. When in off-line mode data is memorized
internally and can be downloaded at a later date. In on-line mode transactions
are monitored in real time by a computer to which PROX+ sends all data that it
collects (from either the keypad or card reader).
- It prints transaction
- A handy extractable screw connector block simplifies
both installation and maintenance.
- 4 optoinsulated digital inputs.
They can be associated with a counter: a status change or overflow of the counter
can activate a relay, can be recorded in a file, can prompt a message to the host
computer, or launch a procedure.
- 3 digital outputs with relay.
They can be programmed for valid entry, valid exit, invalid access, access under
threat; schedules by the minute and by the weekday; on the basis of events at
the inputs and on commands.
- Table-top versions available on request.
fully compatible with standard numeric PROX+, has a wide 240x128 dot matrix screen
that can display up to 4 different text fonts with up to 12 lines of 32 characters.
All special characters of the european languages are supported with Windows™ ASCII
codes. Function keys are aligned along the left border of the display, so that
function descriptions can be clearly shown on it.
PROX+ can be installed as a stand alone unit in point-to-point
configuration on a serial connection, via telephone or modem for remote installations,
on a Current Loop line by means of a passive Current Loop converter, or in multipoint
configuration on an RS485 line using NET92 protocol (up to 254 terminals).
can control up to 31 PROX+/EnTRAX/MAX/TRAX+ slaves..
slave EnTRAX or TRAX/2P's store transactions in their own local memory; the Master
PROX+ is only used as a "gateway" for downloading data from the slave
slave MAX units, instead, will read and send the card code to the Master PROX+
who will compare it against its internal access control authorization tables.
This makes it possible to build a low-cost Access Control solution, with time
and space zones, anti-passback control, etc
at different levels:
PROX+ is equipped with a file system
which manages the memory with commands like those of DOS (DIR, TYPE, DEL, etc.).
The files are organized into "directories". An extra 1 MB of memory
for programmes and data can be added using a RAM card. The RAM card is treated
as an additional logical drive by the file system. Its multitasking operating
system allows the terminal to execute a number of I/O tasks while managing
the user console at the same time, and enables it to memorize data from the COM
ports and the INPUTs in background.
To programme and
manage PROX+ using the support software supplied by TMC you need a PC with either
DOS or WINDOWS operating system. If you use another system, TMC can supply all
the documentation necessary to create your own communication programmes.
basic PROX+ software runs all the functions of the terminal at a high level ensuring
maximum flexibility for the advanced developer and user. Customized programs can
be developed in the following ways:
procedures for access control and time & attendance recording, with or
without memorization of transactions; PIN and PIN "under threat" management;
antipassback control; common code up to 9 figures; 2 to 12 figure user codes;
time zones; user groups; causal codes management; 2nd user guaranteed entry; and
timed siren. It can display all the entries and exits recorded and, if uploaded
by the host in special files, it can provide users with a breakdown of their hours
and display personalized messages for either single users or groups. More functions
can be defined and programmed. The time tables and access tables can also be managed
via the keypad.
- The configuration parameters can be set by means
of the keyboard or via the communication links. They determine how the resident
pre-programmed procedures of the terminal (attendance, access control, I/O task
management, on-line or off-line functions) will be carried out.
collection procedures can be launched by specific function keys, input events,
or a timed event. The sequence of the steps in the transaction can be determined
on the basis of the date, the time, or the status of the input/output lines. The
transactions are defined by text files downloaded onto PROX+ via the RS232 or
NET92 connections, or by transferring the RAM Card. These files describe the operator
prompts and validity checks for each transaction. They contain the necessary operations,
the questions to the operator, and data validity checks.
- If you have a
RAMCard you can download programmes written in "C", and compiled
on your PC by means of a "cross-compiler", via the communication links.
TMC supplies a library to give high level support to all the hardware and software
resources of PROX+.
UTILITIES - COMMTEST and CTW32 to test thecommunications
and functions of PROX+ in NET92or RS232; PROX-LINK to manage the format of thearchives
downloaded from PROX+; PROCX totranslate the procedures loaded onto PROX+.PROX
"C" Libraries - libraries and manuals fordeveloping programmes in "C"
to load onto PROX+'sRAMCard (and Flash ROM when available).DLL - libraries with
demonstration functions andprogrammes for PROX+ in Windows with examplesin Visual
