An electronic licence request for the Mervis software platform - the officially supported solution for programming Unipi programmable logic controllers.
Mervis is a full-fledged software platform provided for free for all Unipi controllers. It is a professional solution suitable for a wide range of applications, from smart home control to industrial automation. The Mervis IDE development environment, a core of the whole platform, is suitable for both beginners and experienced programmers due to its user-friendly interface and comprehensive design.
Detailed info about Mervis, its parts and functions, is available on this link.
The licence request contains a licence code for the Mervis Runtime - a software running directly on the Unipi PLC which executes programs created in the Mervis IDE development environment and is thus necessary for a proper function of Unipi controllers using Mervis. Without the licence, Mervis Runtime will run only for 20 minutes from the start of the PLC or its control logic. During this trial period, you can freely test all functions of the Mervis IDE. After the trial period expires, Mervis Runtime will deactivate and the control logic will stop. Full functionality can be restored by successfully licencing your controller. The licence is applicable only for Unipi hardware, eg. it cannot be used on standalone Raspberry Pi computer. A complete Runtime licencing tutorial is available on this link.
By using the licence request, you will also obtain login credentials for the Mervis DB service (storing the historical variable value from PLCs) and identification code for the Mervis Proxy service (secure remote access to controllers). Licence activation guide is available on this link.
Note: The licence request will be sent to you via the e-mail address used for registration on the Unipi e-shop.
The new licencing system applies only to Mervis IDE v2.3.0. If your projects use the Mervis IDE 2.2.0 or older, you do not need to perform any changes. Licencing must be performed only when transferring your project to the Mervis IDE 2.3.0 - in that case, all you need to do is to licence Mervis Runtime using your already obtained licence cards.
