HKL-2000 License Policy for Commercial Users

Commercial users interested in obtaining the HKL-2000 license may contact us at hkl@hkl-xray.com to request a quotation and a commercial license agreement. Our standard license agreement is intended for those users, who do not provide data reduction services. 

A license agreement must be completed before the license key file: access key can be obtained.

A single license allows installing the software on up to 6 computers under the same operating system. The package is distributed in form of the compiled executables. The supported operating systems are listed on the Hardware/OS page.

During the first year from the license activation, the license is extended to include the 'HKL-2000 Synchrotron License' at no additional cost.

The HKL-2000 Synchrotron License includes 

  1. using the HKL-2000 software to reduce data collected at any synchrotron beam line, provided that data format is recognized by the SOFTWARE. Data from high performance detectors such as PILATUS3  and Eiger Hybrid Photon Counting detectors or the Rayonix MX-HS (high speed) detectors are supported.

  2. using the HKL-2000 program during the experiment at any synchrotron beam line, where the HKL-2000 or the HKL-3000 SOFTWARE is installed.

Upgrades are provided free of charge for a period of one (1) year from the activation of the permanent license.

There is only one type of the HKL-2000 software maintenance contract, and it includes the 'HKL-2000 Synchrotron License'. Under the contract, HKL Research provides the following services:

  • Updating of the license keys (upon LICENSEE's request)
