Activate an HMI

The HMI must have been activated in order to be connected using EasyAccess 2.0. Check its activation status on HMI in the [EasyAccess 2] tab of the [System settings] page. Activation is permanent, so please make sure that activation is applied to the intended HMI.

Selected models have EasyAccess 2.0 activated by default. If your HMI has not been activated, it can be activated by one of the following means:

  • Self-serve activation with activation codes on Domain web page
  • Self-serve activation with activation codes on PC Activator
  • Activation by Weintek’s authorized dealer

Alternatively, new user could test out EasyAccess 2.0 by getting trial activation.

In either case, HMI’s Hardware key will be required. Locate it in the [EasyAccess 2] tab of system setting or system register LW-11210.
