The licensing model is based on Agents and Remote Clients (Operator, Adroit Air, Performance Anywhere, Secure Mobile Gateway)

Choosing the right Adroit Ignite HMI Software package for your automation solution

In order to size your system correctly, you need to take the following into consideration.

The number of Agents - A good starting point would be the number of I/O that will be scanned in from a device, such as a PLC. This would determine the minimum Agent size system. After familiarising yourself with the Agent architecture, both value and functionality, you can then decide what additional Agents you will be using and the sum of the I/O Agents (such as Digital and Analogue) plus the value add Agents (DBAccess, Expression etc.) will determine the license required (8 -Free, 30, 75 or 150)

The protocol drivers - All Adroit Ignite HMI drivers (Mitsubishi, MODBUS, OMRON etc.) are included in the package except for the OEM licensed drivers (Siemens Ethernet and Allen Bradley, both available at an additional cost)

The number of concurrent connections the system will have - The number of remote concurrent connections in the Adroit Ignite HMI is limited to 3. These can be made up of any of the following:

- Operators, Microsoft Excel add-in, custom web pages or any 3rd party applications using the available APIs (web services, OLE, ActiveX, C++)

The number of Performance Anywhere clients - 1st connection is included, up to 5 additional clients are available in the Adroit Ignite HMI software offering.

The number of Adroit Air App clients - 1st connection is included, up to 5 additional clients are available in the Adroit Ignite HMI software offering.


Once all criteria have been taken into account, all the standard tools and features of Adroit Ignite HMI Software can be used to build the solution.

USB dongle/HASP

The default license is done using our soft licensing mechanism. (T&C's apply)

Alternatively, you may purchase a USB dongle/HASP software protection key, which is inserted into the USB port of the computer on which the Agent Server is running.

This HASP is then programmed in accordance with your specific license agreement.

Please note this option makes it possible to transfer between machines. However, this costs US$50 per key plus transport additional to the cost of the software.
