What is the difference between Dongle & PC-bonded licenses?

Dongle license:

  • flexible in use (indepenent from PC)
  • Using Options on several CMMs
  • risk of loss
  • Use 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.
  • When a computer is defective, a new license must be requested.
