Tektronix provides a variety of licenses depending on the product. The product license administration is through Tektronix Asset Management System (TekAMS). TekAMS has an easy to use web based interface that provides:
If you have received an invitation to use the application, your licenses are available in the TekAMS application (login required)
TekAMS users defined as license key managers are authorized to add users who can then access these licenses and assign them to specific Tektronix Instruments or Personal Computers. TekAMS keeps a track of these assets and enables users to quickly verify compatibility at time of license check-out.
TekAMS supports three different types of Licenses
Node Locked Licenses are tied to a specific instrument or a personal computer based on a unique Identifier. Node Locked Licenses provide your own copy of the product on your instrument or personal computer. The product or option is permanently enabled for the instrument or Personal Computer.
Floating Licenses provide the ability to move the license from an instrument or a personal computer to another by checking in a license from an instrument or PC and checking it out to another. Floating licenses maximize your investment by offering you the ability to move valuable products / options from one instrument to another, to share between labs or across geographies to configure the products based on needs for a particular project or test.
Free Trial or “evaluation” Licenses allow you to use fully functional Tektronix product for limited period of time enabling you to see the product functionality and evaluate it to decide which products are right for you before purchase. These licenses are restricted for trial only and are not to be used for commercial purpose. A catalog of the licenses currently available on this page. Other licenses may be available. Please contact your account team.
