New ECAT Dongel Questions ?


Recommended Posts

I noticed with new Motion Machine that it came with a Dongel. Can I get some clarification on what this does and how to use it ?


Is this the ECAT license Dongel ?


Does it matter if plugged in before or after power up of unit ?


What if it is removed while unit is working with drives ?


Can the Dongel be moved from Pmac to Pmac and the license files move as well ?


How can I know that the Dongel is working and how many ECAT devices the license is good for ?


When Looking at the ECAT setup it has the same number of ECAT devices (4servo + IO) with or without the Dongel plugged in, does this make sense ?


I assume the manuals will soon (if not already) be updated with dongle details.


Any other tips on how to use or NOT use the Dongel ?

We send the units with software licence files in the C:\DeltaTau\MotionCore\opt\etherlab\etc\sysconfig folder.


Disregard the dongle as It has been determined by Product Marketing we will use software licensing only for now on.
