Supported Hardware Keys for ERDAS products

What hardware keys (dongles) are supported for ERDAS products?


Hexagon Geospatial supports the use of SafeNet hardware keys with its geospatial products whenever possible. You may purchase SafeNet hardware keys from your Hexagon Geospatial sales agent (30-day warranty for key failure only. No warranty for failure caused by user damage or abuse).


Hexagon Geospatial  only recognizes the first ERDAS-branded SafeNet hardware key present on the system. Certain software products (such as FPES) from Leica Geosystems also use ERDAS-branded keys. It is possible to get ERDAS and ERDAS-Net licenses based upon those hardware keys, but the ERDAS licenses and the Leica licenses will be tied to that hardware key, and will only work on the specific machine where the hardware key is installed. Hexagon Geospatial software products prior to the 2013 release cannot use ERDAS-branded hardware keys.



  • ERDAS APOLLO Image Manager 2009 and ERDAS APOLLO Server 2009 did not support floating licenses or hardware keys. Only a nodelocked license based upon a network address was supported. This restriction was lifted for the 9.3.2 release.

  • ERDAS TITAN 2009 servers did not support hardware keys.

  • ERDAS ADE Enterprise 2010 and beyond only support floating licenses based upon a server that is not using a hardware key.

Can i verify "Hexagon Geospatial only recognizes the first ERDAS-branded SafeNet hardware key present on the system."


This mean the server can only recognize 1 key?

What if i have multiple key?
