How a HandPunch works:
Every hand is unique. The HandPunch takes over 90 measurements of the length, width, thickness, and surface area of the hand and fingers - all in just 1 second. The technology uses a 32,000-pixel CCD digital camera to record the hand's three-dimensional shape from silhouetted images projected within the HandPunch.

The HandPunch disregards surface details, such as fingerprints, lines, scars, dirt, as well as fingernails, which may grow or be cut from day to day (addition of nail extension excluded). Because the HandPunch uses the unique shape of the users hand to verify identity, it can be used in machine shops, factories, manufacturing plants, and almost any industrial environment where fingerprint biometrics would not work properly. During enrollment, which takes approximately 30 seconds, the internal HandPunch processor and software convert the hand image to a 9-byte mathematical template, which is the average of the three readings.

When a person uses the HandPunch, it compares the shape of the user's hand to a template recorded during an enrollment session. If the template and the hand match, the HandPunch produces an a transaction record. The user's template may reside in internal memory of the HandPunch, who's employee capacity is independent of the time and attendance software's employee capacity. (check unit's specifications and optional memory upgrade option for larger employee capacity upgrades).

Among biometric technologies, hand geometry has the highest user acceptance. With the highest level of accuracy and ease of use, the HandPunch has become the most widely accepted biometric technology in use today.
