Additional Information


ELTEC’s DLPRO software is the programming platforms for the NTC17E, TC-18, and TC-3000 time clocks. DLPRO provides the user with an intuitive graphic user interface to program and manage multiple schedules and easily download them to each clock using the transfer cable (NTC17E) ,USB interface cable (TC-18), or remote internet connection. The software for the TC-18 and TC-3000 additionally provides an interface to test clock functionality, maintain DST settings, and synchronize the clocks time and date to the host computer.  Each time clock has a different version of DLPRO. The NTC17E uses DLPRO17E, the TC-18 uses DLPRO18, and the TC-3000 uses DLPRO3000.
