PSS®E Hardware Lock Options

Siemens PTI offers these lock choices:

  1. A SuperPro USB lock on operating systems that support USB ports (Please note: Windows NT does not support any USB type devices (locks)).

  2. A Superpro 797 lock. The Superpro 797 lock, because of its small size, is better suited for laptops.

  3. Network lock (not available for all software), contact Siemens PTI for pricing. Network locking software, required when using a network lock, can be downloaded from here.  This network locking software is supported on 32 bit and 64 bit installations of Windows XP, Server 2003, Windows 7 and Server 2008.

Customers who are current on their Maintenance and Support can exchange their current individual parallel port locks for individual USB locks for US$175 each (plus sales tax if applicable). Payment is required in advance. For this small amount, purchase orders will not be accepted.

A hardware lock may also be configured as a suite lock for multiple products. Suite locks offer the convenience of a single lock with the disadvantage being that only one platform may run the licensed software products at a time and, if the lock breaks, all software products licensed on that lock will no longer function.
