Dongle license:

  • Flexible in usage (indepenent from PC)
  • Using options on several CMMs
  • Risk of loss
  • Usage of USB port required
  • No transfer of options possible

PC-bondend license:

  • License is directly assigned to the computer
  • Options can be moved up to twice a year to other CMM
  • In case of a defect regarding the computer a new license must be requested
