It is possible to upgrade the set of available features by purchasing a new Product Key from Eurotherm. The Configuration Software option is not charged for. However, it may be disabled by Product Key where it is specifically not required.
Whenever the Configuration Software option is specified, all other options (where not ordered) will operate in a demo mode as appropriate.
If OPC Scope trending and logging has not been specified, the OPC Scope program will still be available as a simple OPC client offering live textual displays.
iTools is supplied on CD-ROM, or as a download from the Eurotherm web site.
During iTools installation you will be asked for a Product Key. The key is a 20-character value in the format 01234-56789-ABCDE-F0123. You will find this number on the back of the CD case. The Product Key determines which iTools features are enabled. iTools version 5 and later are also compatible with 10-digit Product Keys supplied with earlier versions of iTools.
If you enter no Product Key, or an incorrect Product Key, iTools will install with Configuration Software available, as well as other features in Demo mode. This will apply where iTools was downloaded from the Eurotherm web site.
A new Product Key may be entered after installation, by selecting ‘Registration Information…’ from the Help menu in iTools.
