i4BACnet Licensing

Abstract

Read this article and follow the described steps in order to enable your i4BACnet License.

Given the fact that i4BACnet is a standalone product an individual license must be issued for it. However, similar to the installation of the product, an i4BACnet License cannot be obtained without an i4SCADA License. 

You will be issued a 9999999 signals limited license by following below described steps:

  1. Address to WEBfactory Sales team at purchase@webfactory-world.de

  2. Regardless of the i4SCADA License type (Hardware-based / Software-based) you will be required to generate a C2V file (Customer to Vendor) and deliver it to the WEBfactory Sales team.  

    A C2V File can be downloaded by following up the below described steps:

    1. Go to the Start menu and open the Licensing tool under the i4SCADA Products batch.
