ZKTeco/ZKSoftware C3 controllers for time and attendance

ZKTeco/ZKSoftware C3 type controllers are primarily used for access control, but such a system can be extended using our software to time and attendance system. This way, with minimal investment, you get two systems in one. They have been proven to be an excellent choice in situations where it is necessary to have high flow when recording events. Punching is very simple, the card is presented to a specific reader who records IN or OUT event. There are three types of controllers, they differ in the number of doors they can control, as well as in what way.


C3-100

C3-100 controller device

C3-100 type devices are primarily intended for smaller companies that want a basic access control with time and attendance in one device. They control one (1) door (they have one relay with COM/NO/NC contacts), and up to two readers can be connected to them. They offer basic functions, but also high speed of registration with possibility of connecting any reader type (125KHz, 13,56MHz, HID...). As readers, you can use any 26-bit wiegand reader, from any manufacturer. They are is characterized by a reasonable price. Although it is possible to have an unlimited number of these controllers in the system and thus adapt the system to large companies, if you need control of a large number of doors or turnstiles, we recommend using C3-200 or C3-400 controllers.

The characteristics of the system with the C3-100 controllers are:

  • can monitor only IN/OUT events, using the system is very simple
  • a maximum of 30,000 users
  • the system works independently without non-stop computer support
  • with the use of sources of uninterrupted power supply system can work even when there is no electricity
  • the system is connected to an existing computer network, or directly to your computer, so you need a minimum investment of time and money in carrying out the installation
  • the system can be connected via RS485 connection
  • the system remembers in standalone mode to 100,000 registrations of employees, but when you switch the computer on where the software for time and attendance is installed, the software downloads all registrations from the terminal and frees his memory for future work
  • in combination with the access control software (i.e. with software offered by the manufacturer of this device) you get a complete system for access control and time and attendance

Characteristics of C3-100 controllers are:

  • controls one door, maximum of two readers can be connected
  • one relay with NO, NC and COM contact
  • controllers are designed for indoor use, but the readers can be mounted outside to work in the outdoor, in the most demanding conditions
  • reader can be installed, at the request of the customer, in metal casing which gives anti-vandal protection
  • over-current protection, protection against incorrect polarity
  • TCP/IP or RS485 connection
  • supports multiple Wiegand formats and HID, Mifare and generic card readers
  • the use of smart card's or tag's
  • working without the support of a computer
  • it is possible to equip it with a source of continuous power which allows work in cases where there is no electricity

C3-200

C3-200 controller device

C3-200 devices are also intended for smaller companies that want basic access control with time and attendance or large company's in which there is a large flow of employees within one shift. They control two (2) doors (they have two relays with COM/NO/NC contacts), and a maximum of 4 readers can be connected to them. They offer high speed check-in/out with the possibility of connecting any reader type (125KHz, 13,56MHz, HID...). As readers, you can use any 26-bit wiegand reader, from any manufacturer. They have a big memory capacity and a reasonable price. On each door, it is possible, with the help of our software, to define the type of event that is logged, so it is possible to define on one door, e.g. as working hours (IN/OUT), and at other doors sa e.g. break (IN/OUT). The number of combinations for the event type is unlimited, and also the user can define his own event for each door.

The characteristics of the system with the C3-200 controllers are:

  • can monitor IN/OUT events of different types, using the system is very simple
  • a maximum of 30,000 users
  • the system works independently without non-stop computer support
  • with the use of sources of uninterrupted power supply system can work even when there is no electricity
  • the system is connected to an existing computer network, or directly to your computer, so you need a minimum investment of time and money in carrying out the installation
  • the system can be connected via RS485 connection
  • the system remembers in standalone mode to 100,000 registrations of employees, but when you switch the computer on where the software for time and attendance is installed, the software downloads all registrations from the terminal and frees his memory for future work
  • in combination with the access control software (i.e. with software offered by the manufacturer of this device) you get a complete system for access control and time and attendance

Characteristics of C3-200 controllers are:

  • controls two doors, maximum of four readers can be connected
  • two relays with NO, NC and COM contact
  • controllers are designed for indoor use, but the readers can be mounted outside to work in the outdoor, in the most demanding conditions
  • reader can be installed, at the request of the customer, in metal casing which gives anti-vandal protection
  • over-current protection, protection against incorrect polarity
  • TCP/IP or RS485 connection
  • supports multiple Wiegand formats and HID, Mifare and generic card readers

C3-400

ZKTeco C3-400 controller


C3-400 controller device

C3-400 devices have the same purpose as the C3-200, but with one big difference. They have four relays that can control up to four (4) doors. The controller has two operating modes, ie. can work in C3-200 mode. Then only two relays are active, and both readers that control one relay are used when logging IN/OUT events. The second mode of operation implies that each reader has its own relay that controls, which is very important if you want to use one-way access control on the door or e.g. turnstiles (tripodes). When working in this operating mode, a signal is sent to the turnstile via a relay to turn in one direction or another. In this way, with high speed check-in/out, they are ideal for use in large systems where it is important that a large number of employees go through the turnstiles. As readers, you can use any 26-bit wiegand reader, from any manufacturer.

The characteristics of the system with the C3-400 controllers are:

  • can monitor IN/OUT events of different types, using the system is very simple
  • a maximum of 30,000 users
  • the system works independently without non-stop computer support
  • with the use of sources of uninterrupted power supply system can work even when there is no electricity
  • the system is connected to an existing computer network, or directly to your computer, so you need a minimum investment of time and money in carrying out the installation
  • the system can be connected via RS485 connection
  • the system remembers in standalone mode to 100,000 registrations of employees, but when you switch the computer on where the software for time and attendance is installed, the software downloads all registrations from the terminal and frees his memory for future work
  • in combination with the access control software (i.e. with software offered by the manufacturer of this device) you get a complete system for access control and time and attendance

Characteristics of C3-400 controllers are:

  • controls two doors on both sides or four doors on one side, maximum of four readers can be connected
  • four relays with NO, NC and COM contact
  • controllers are designed for indoor use, but the readers can be mounted outside to work in the outdoor, in the most demanding conditions
  • reader can be installed, at the request of the customer, in metal casing which gives anti-vandal protection
  • over-current protection, protection against incorrect polarity
  • TCP/IP or RS485 connection
  • supports multiple Wiegand formats and HID, Mifare and generic card readers
