Product Description

Recently Upgraded Time Recorder

The LT5000 time recorder replaces the discontinued Lathem 5000EP model, now featuring more preset messages and internet compatibility for creating custom print configurations.

Lathem LT5000 multi-purpose dot matrix time recorder can be used as an employee time clock, document stamp, and number machine. This side feed unit provides single insertion two line printing; print the time and date along with a message. Programmable four-digit passcode protection. Includes thirty preset print formats and compatibility with a free account to easily configure custom prints. Custom prints can be uploaded to the unit using its USB 2.0 port.

As an employee time clock, the LT5000 prints the time and date on time cards or job tickets to help calculate payroll or job costs. As a document stamp, this time recorder can print comments using fifteen preset comments such as "PAID" and "SENT" to the time and date, making it well suited for stamping sensitive documents.

If your application requires the unique identification of documents, the LT5000 can even be set to operate as a numbering machine, printing up to an eight-digit number that advances based on your settings.

Rating Summary
  • Slow machine
    Verified Buyer 31 May, 2017

    The machine stamps very slow. We have hundreds of pieces of mail that we stamp a week and it is very slow. We will need to look for a faster machine.
