Trace: welcome

Welcome to MatchID

Thank you for choosing MatchID as your digital image correlation platform! First, some basic information regarding your software before you get started.

MatchID License

The box you received is your starter pack that contains your license dongles. Keep them safe!! Without these dongles, you will not be able to use the MatchID software. Removing the dongle while using MatchID will result in a software shutdown.

Normally, every customer receives two dongles:

  • Red dongle: contains the MatchID grabber for experimental setup, camera communication and data acquisition. Additionally, all your purchased modules for post-processing are included. As such, this is a fully operational dongle generally used in the lab.
  • Black dongle: contains only the post-processing modules.
WARNING: For safety reasons, each license dongle is valid for one year only. If needed, e.g. for a perpetual license, your dongle has to be updated yearly. This is done through our license manager, please see License Manager for more information on the updating process.
There is also the possibility to buy a dongle with a floating license. This dongle allows you to use our software on several PC's in the same network with only one dongle. Please contact us at support@matchidmbc.be if you would have more queries regarding this.
