CodeMeter has been extended especially for industrial needs: the CodeMeter hardware CmCards can be easily retrofitted for machines and plants and they are available in different form factors such as CompactFlash, CFAST, SD or microSD. An alternative is the space-saving CmStick/C for USB. They encrypt digital information such as embedded software, production data, machine logs or service documents. Only the matching CmDongle decrypts the digital information making it accessible. Additionally CodeMeter can be used for know-how protection and integrity protection. It runs platform independent on Windows 32- and 64-bit, Windows Embedded and CE, Windows Mobile, Mac OS X, Linux, Realtime Linux; in the SoftSPS CoDeSys and the real time system VxWorks.
