System Licensing

Unrestricted License

The unrestricted license is the licensing option typically chosen by our customers. This DBDOC license includes use of all DBDOC components needed to build and support the use of an INFI-90® system. We license a site for unrestricted number of users, and PCs.

The RoviSys® Turbo® Lite Server is licensed separately (see below).

Single-User License

A single user license is intended as an introduction to DBDOC, or for use with an application such as PI. Under the single-user license agreement, DBDOC is installed and available for use on a single PC.

The RoviSys® Turbo® Lite Server is licensed separately (see below).

Subscription - One-Year Licensing

For clients who are not sure how long their ABB® INFI 90® system will be in operation, we have a one-year licensing plan. Each year, a one-year license will be issued covering development and support for an amount that is 30% of the current capital cost each year.


Pricing is based on the size (number of documents) of the INFI-90®system(s) in use at the plant, and is typically quoted as a site license for the number of systems being licensed at that site.

Document count includes:

  1. The total of CAD sheets, graphics, batch (B90) files; plus Ladder files which count as 50 CAD sheets each)
  2. AD® and MicroStation® drawings
  3. TXT, and RTF files as appropriate.

The software will ship with a USB dongle (security key).

Warranty and Updates

DBDOC is sold with a one-year warranty, which provides support, analysis and updates from GMCL that start at the beginning of the first month of purchase of the software by the client. Off-site support is included at no charge as part of the service. Following the first year of support, technical support and new versions are available annually by purchasing the DBDOC support and update (SU) service.

These services are included with your Support and Update Service agreement:
