Frequently Asked Questions
Here are some answers to frequently asked questions.
When in doubt, please contact Simlog.
Can I use Simlog software "online" with just my Web browser?
No. Simlog products are "desktop" applications that must be installed on
your PC and used with simulator controls that are connected to
the same PC. Only in this way can our products deliver the real-time
performance that's required to simulate the behaviour of real heavy
equipment for operator training.
Can I use the same software license with many PCs?
No. At Simlog, software licensing is "per PC" so for each PC, you will
need a separate software license. For all other questions about software
licensing, please refer to these details on
our Web site.
Can two students train together using Simlog software, by connecting
their two PCs?
No. When operating heavy equipment, most work is
"self-contained", i.e. the operator has little interaction with other
equipment. However, when interaction is required, students learn that
best by working with experienced operators, not other students. This is
why many of our products feature a simulated expert at the controls of
the other equipment (for example, a simulated mining truck built into
the electric rope shovel simulation software). In this way, each student
learns to do things properly, right from the start, and does not need to
depend upon the availability of another student (at the controls of
I want to become an operator. Is there special pricing for "home study"?
No. Simlog does not offer "home study" versions of our professional training
simulation software, so we have no special pricing for "home study". The
fact is, after simulator-based training help, you need to "graduate" to
the controls of real heavy equipment. So if you are serious about
becoming a heavy equipment operator, you will need to look for an
operator training program.
I'm not interested in operator training. Do you have something "just for fun"?
No. As mentioned already, Simlog has only one kind of product and only
one kind of pricing. But if you would just like to learn about
earth-moving equipment, then you might want to visit the
How Stuff Works Web site.
