- In case of the request to extend
already purchased runtime licenses by new licenses, the price difference
of the runtime licenses has to be paid extra. The extension of the runtime license is performed by sending the license file
by email. New runtime licenses can be distributed also by sending new licence key - replacing the old one.
- The customer can either assemble the license
- by selecting components according to his requirements from the menu
- or choose the PmDriverPack package.
BASIC runtime license - mandatory
This part of the license can always
be purchased for the given application if the application size exceeds the size limit defined for PmFree - Free development environment and a runtime license of the PROMOTIC system
The license allows to operate one or more PROMOTIC applications on one PC.
Parts of the basic runtime license 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 license 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 PmData, PmOpcClientData, PmTrend, PmCommData, PmCommMsg, in obsolete objects PmNumber and PmString 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 defined data variables of the application. According to the number of the variables, the license price is then defined. See Basic runtime license and Price list .
The information about current application size can be found in the application editor, in the root object (in the PmRoot object), in the "Object size and license" configurator.
