Amano PIX-15 Electronic Time Recorder Review

Amano PIX-15 Employee Time Recorder & ClockWhen it comes to shopping for time clocks, there are a lot of good choices out there. With several different styles, models and systems to choose from, it may seem a little overwhelming. If you’re looking for an electric punch-style time clock, you may want to consider the Amano PIX-15 electronic time recorder (found here). This is my review.

To begin with, the Amano PIX-15 is a very popular time clock with our customers. This is probably due in part to the fact that it is affordable, but there is definitely more to it than that. These time recorders also have a great track record.

The PIX-15 is more of a traditional punch-style time clock, but with several electronic enhancements. To begin with, the digital display tells you the time, either in standard or military time. There are no analog components involved in the actual time tracking.

Amano PIX-15 Replacement Ribbon CartridgeThere are few things more annoying than a power outage that wipes out all the settings on your electronics. A built in battery backup keeps settings secure during a power outage. I’ve never tested this to see if it is true, but Amano claims the machine retains memory and settings for 3 years.

Printing is done by inserting the side of the time card into the machine. An illuminated print window makes the time card easy to see making alignment simple. The stamping can be set up for automatic or manual modes. Automatic stamping uses a micro switch to activate the stamp when a card is slid in. The manual stamping is activated by pressing a button.

Not only does the Amano PIX-15 stamp the time, but it can also be used to stamp up to 10 different messages. These messages are VOID, SENT, PAID, 0RIGIN, RCV’D, CFM’D, APR’D, FAX’D, CMPL’D. This is especially nice for document control purposes. It can also be used as a time stamp for documents rather than an employee time clock.

Have you ever used a time recorder or clock that required you to feed the ribbon for proper operation? The PIX-15 uses a printing cartridge, making ribbon replacement quick and easy. It only takes a few seconds, and a single cartridge lasts for a while.

The PIX-15 can be used on a table or be mounted on a wall. The alignment of the clock is purely based on preference or available space. The time recorder works equally well either way.

Overall I have to say that the PIX-15 is a great little time recorder. It is ideal for small to medium-size businesses.
