Athena Badge

Athena Data Collection Terminal

The InftiniTime Athena time clock is our cost effective, durable solution for businesses who want power in an easy to use terminal. The Athena brings automated time & attendance functionality to you in a sleek compact design capable of tracking over 50,000 punch events and 30,000 card holders. The Athena not only accurately tracks time & attendance, but it can also be used for access control purposes. The user has the ability to view their last recorded time, transfer departments, and enter other information like tips, mileage, etc.

The large LCD screen provides maximum readability, and the on board speaker provides audible confirmation of a complete or incomplete transaction. In addition, data can optionally be downloaded directly from the Athena, via a USB drive making it great for locations
without network connectivity.

InfiniTime Athena communicates by a standard TCP/IP Ethernet protocol. When connected to a network you can quickly sync accurate and pertinent data to InfiniTime.

How it Works

The Athena is one of the easiest devices for you to operate. There are two very easy ways to use the Athena; either swipe from a pre-assigned badge or enter pre-assigned pin entry. Successfully doing either triggers an audible tone and flash an LED light to confirm that the employee has been clocked in or out. The access control features on Athena operate the same. Simply swipe or enter a PIN number to trigger the door to open.

The data collected by the Athena terminal is sent to the InfiniTime Labor Management System to generate reports, track exceptions, and pass data to payroll for check processing.
