Before the Start
To be able to operate normally, the device needs to have:
- its SD card fitted in SD card box, and
- its license assigned.
The hardware itself is only the base for the SD card, which consists of all the software parts necessary for hardware management.
The SD card is not assigned to a particular hardware unit. It can be moved to another controller. This function allows for easy hardware replacement. Together with the SD card all the parameters, such as the communication settings, station, Niagara, JVM, and operation system, are moved.
The license file provides a limited number of points, which can be used to build the application. Without the license file, the user is not allowed to run the station on the device.
