BASIC runtime licence - mandatory
This part of the licence can always
be purchased for the given application if the application size exceeds the number of variables defined for PmFree - Free development environment and a runtime licence of the PROMOTIC system
The licence allows to operate one or more PROMOTIC applications on one PC.
Parts of the basic runtime licence are, among others, alarm and event system, trends (i.e. saving and viewing values of selected variables with a timestamp), panels, system of users and permissions, debug tools, security components, etc.
There are 4 basic PROMOTIC runtime licence types - according to the application size:
: size of the application up to 100 variables
: size of the application up to 500 variables
: size of the application up to 1 000 variables
: size of the application up to 5 000 variables
: size of the application up to 50 000 variables
: unlimited size of the application
Variables that are counted into the total application size are in objects PmaData, PmaOpcDaClientGroup, PmaTrendGroup, PmaCommGroup, PmaCommMsg, in obsolete objects PmaNumber and PmaString and in ExtSubVar data extension.
The number of application variables expresses the extent and complexity of the application. The total number of application variables is the sum of all data variables of the application. According to the number of the variables, the licence price is then defined. See Basic runtime licence and Price list .
The information about current application size can be found in the editor of Pma objects, in the root object (in the PmaRoot object), in the "Object size and licence" configurator.
