Horizontal 12-capacity Badge Rack

from the LATHEM website...

This badge rack is a recommended accessory for any PayClock Time and Attendance system. Many companies use two badge racks with one on each side of the terminal. As employees clock in, they move their badge from the "out" rack to the "in" rack... an effective way for supervisors to determine who is on-site.

Designed for longevity, all racks are constructed of heavy duty steel and then powder-coated charcoal GRAY to prevent corrosion. Mounting hardware and badge slot numbers are included to help you get the most out of your badge rack.

PC50 Finger Sensor, Wall Mount, each $199.00

TS-WFS Lathem PC50 wall mount finger sensor at

from the Lathem website...

The TouchStation wallmount finger sensor is the perfect accessory to any PC50 system.  This device plugs into the PC50 and adds fingerprint recognition to virtually eliminate buddy punching.  Buddy punching occurs when employees mistakenly (or intentionally) clock each other in at the wrong time.  Buddy punching is a leading cause of inflated payroll costs for small businesses.  With the finger sensor, badges are eliminated and employees simply place their finger on the sensor to clock in.  The system immediately recognized their identity and registers their in or out punch.




PC50 RFID Key Fobs, pack of 5, each $30.00

RFKEY-5 Lathem PC50 RFID key fobs at

from the Lathem website...

This package of 5 key fob badges is a perfect addition to any PC50 system.  These badge replacements allow employees to attach a small device to their keys which reduces the chances that they are lost or forgotten at home.  If they drive, the employee can't come to work without their badge.  These key fobs work exactly like the badges and have the badge number printed on them for easy entry into the software.

from the Lathem website...

This part is a high quality REGULATED power supply that produces a reliable 5V DC current for the PC50 terminal.  You should not use a standard (non-regulated) power supply as these may provide an average voltage stated on the device but do not provide a consistent voltage.  Other power supplies may damage the PC50 and void the warranty or annual support agreement.
