LicensingThe Pepperl+Fuchs DTM-Collections can be downloaded separately or altogether in a version with basic license. This version can also be obtained on CD-ROM from Pepperl+Fuchs.

Basic license:
The software remains a basic version after installation under the terms of a basic license that may have limited features. The basic license is delivered free of charge.

Full license:
The full license can only be activated by an individual license key number and transfers a basic version of software to a full version under the term of a full license. The software under these terms can be installed on more than one workstation simultaneously. The full licenses with the functionality quoted in the following can be ordered at Pepperl+Fuchs.
Available licensesDTM-Collection Level Control Technology:
basic license already includes full license, no further licenses necessary
InstallationAdministrator rights are required For installation in Windows.
Configuration
Representation of the system configurationGraphic representation of all communication and device type managers in the tree structure. In case of online operation colour code for identification of defective units and simulation operation. Multiple windows can be opened simultaneously. It is therefore possible to view the set device parameters, to monitor the measurement value and to display the device diagnostic simultaneously.
System planning, application processingGeneration of a configuration by means of a graphical application processing menu. Editing of available projects. Selection switch markings for each channel. Offline configuration, saving of project data to hard disk. Automatic comparison of the project plan to the actual available system when establishing connections on the device and parameter levels.
