Lathem 1600E

Using the same technology NASA employs to tell time, the Model 1600E wirelessly synchronizes with the National Institute of Standards and Technology's (NIST) atomic clock in Boulder, Colorado. In addition to confirming the time daily, the 1600E automatically adjusts for Daylight Saving Time. No wires, no worries, and no more excuses for being late. As a time clock, the 1600E records employees' in and out times for payroll accounting. As a job clock, it can track project time for accurate costing. And as a document stamp, the 1600E can print the date, time and preset messages on important documents.

1600E Atomic Time Recorder & Date Stamp

Lathem 1600E Atomic Time Recorder

Tru-Align Printing

Tru-Align provides fast printing and exact print alignment. Using the optional Tru-Align E16 weekly time card (25 time cards are included with purchase), the Tru-Align technology senses when the printer is aligned correctly with the proper space on the time card and only then will it automatically trigger and imprint. This guarantees that your employees make the perfect punch on their time cards every time. The whisper-print technology delivers extremely quiet time card punches and printing. Prints date and messages and time in AM/PM or 24HR format, including seconds.

About Wireless Synchronization

There are some environments and weather conditions that may influence the reception of the atomic radio signal. Just as with an AM radio, the Model 1600E can be positioned for optimal reception. Since it also operates as a highly accurate (+/- 15 seconds per month) quartz time clock, it will function properly while outside the reception area or if it cannot receive the WWVB signal.
