Hardware Key Licensing

March 22, 2021 - The new Emerson hardware key is now available for quoting and ordering.

Products supported:

  • PAC Machine Edition Professional Development Suite 9.8
  • PAC Machine Edition Lite Development Suite 9.8
  • PAC Machine Edition QuickPanel CE Development Suite 9.8

When quoting or ordering any of the above software to be licensed with the new hardware key please select the “Key Type” as Emerson Hardware Key-M7.

A software improvement module (SIM 6) has been released for PAC Machine Edition. This SIM is required for hardware keys and includes the Entitlement and Licensing Manager (ELM) 1.2. ELM 1.2 has new information on its main screen to identify the device so that licensing information for that device can be found on the Customer Center portal.

Currently, PAC Productivity Suite 3.8 and PAC Change Management 9.8 will not support hardware key licensing. We will update you when these products support hardware key licensing in the future.
