TwinCAT Registration

TwinCAT is usable for 30 days free of charge. For a further use, a registration is necessary. With this registration a license for the use of the software is acquired.

The licensing procedure
During the installation of TwinCAT the setup program automatically generates a so-called System-ID (e.g. E2A4-90A6-242) based on the individual type numbers of the processor and the harddisk on which TwinCAT is being installed. So it's a code that is only valid for one CPU + HDD combination.
With this System-ID a so-called Registration Key (e.g. 98DD-69E7-34BE-1AF7) is generated that you enter into the Reg.Key field of the setup program. By this the limitation to 30 days is taken up.

Installation instruction:
Start the TwinCAT setup and follow the appearing instructions until the "User Information" window appears.

Enter your name and your companies name here and choose "Next >"


Choose the middle option here and click "Next >"


You receive the Registration Key under specification of your System-ID by phone, fax or email

phone: +49 (0) 5246 963-0
fax: +49 (0) 5246 963-198

Enter the key it into the "(Reg. Key)" field. Thereafter click "Next >"


Now the licencing is finished. Continue with the rest of the setup.
