MTX-30P Proximity Time Clock

Price and rank updated 09/28/2021

Amano's complete proximity time clock system.

The MTX-30P proximity time clock system combines Amano's successful Time Guardian software (PC only) with the Amano MTX-30P proximity badge terminal.

We find using proximity badge systems a great way to collect punches. They don't require personal biometric information, they are fast and easy to use, and they don't require a PIN number.

It works by first assigning a badge number to each employee. The RFID reader in the clock reads that number as the badge is waved in front of the device to clock them in.

What comes in the package?

  • MTX-30P proximity terminal
  • Time Guardian software license for 100 employees (PC only)
  • 20 proximity badges
  • User manual
  • AC power supply
  • Mounting hardware
  • Free 30 days support
  • 1-year warranty

Who is it best for?

Companies wanting a reliable, proximity time clock system, but without the monthly fees. Best used in an office environment, or anywhere without extreme temperatures or dampness.

How do employees clock in?

Employees wave their RFID badge in front of the clock. About an inch or two. When the punch is successful, it plays an audio confirmation.
