The following scenarios describe the behavior of HMI for CNC device communications and CNC Alarm process with and without licensing:
If the base product, CIMPLICITY HMI, is not licensed, HMI for CNC is also not licensed. CIMPLICITY HMI will run in a two hour demonstration mode, however, the router will shut down any HMI for CNC device communications and the HIM for CNC Alarm process.
If the base product, CIMPLICITY HMI, is licensed, but HMI for CNC is not licensed, HMI for CNC device communications and the HMI for CNC Alarm process will shut down immediately.
If the base product, CIMPLICITY HMI, is licensed and HMI for CNC is also licensed, HMI for CNC will run for the number of purchased licenses.
Other HMI for CNC applications will not perform any license checks and will perform normally regardless of CIMPLICITY HMI and HMI for CNC licensing. These other applications provide limited useful functionality that is not available from other sources. These applications include:
CNC Parts Program (cnc_program).
Any program that uses cnc_dll.
For detailed information about licensing, refer to the Proficy Common Licensing help installed with your HMI/SCADA product.
