PACE iLok 3rd Generation
In Stock!

Half the Size, 3x the Licenses

You can pack up to 1,500 licenses on the 3rd Generation iLok — that's three times as many as the previous generation. And at 1.5" x 0.5", it's the smallest iLok ever. It's super durable though, thanks to its split- and crack-proof aluminum frame. Would-be thieves will have a hard time stealing your iLok, as the 3rd Generation iLok's wider and stronger security loop accommodates most desktop security cables, and its etched serial number doesn't rub off without some serious effort. A stylish embossed logo makes counterfeiting extremely difficult, so you'll know that your iLok is the real deal. The 3rd Generation iLok comes complete with a glowing blue LED indicator.

Three times the capacity of the previous generation

The 3rd Generation iLok holds up to 1,500 licenses, and depending on the type of licenses you own, it may even hold beyond that. With three times the capacity of its predecessor, the 3rd Generation iLok puts more licenses in your pocket than ever.

Half the size with a heavy-duty aluminum frame

At Sweetwater, we've lost count of how many times we've accidentally knocked an iLok out of our laptop's USB port. The 2nd Generation iLok was an improvement over the first, but was still rather obtrusive. Half the size of a 2nd Generation iLok, the 3rd Generation iLok solves this problem for good. And while it's unlikely that you'll knock this minuscule device out of your computer, don't fret if you do. Its sturdy one-piece extruded aluminum frame can handle a fall to the floor without splitting or cracking.

The most secure iLok ever

Secure the 3rd Generation iLok to your desk with a cable lock, and it's not going anywhere. Its security loop is built directly into the iLok's robust aluminum frame, making it extremely difficult to break. A large, clearly visible serial number is etched onto the iLok. And to prevent counterfeiting, the 3rd Generation iLok features a stylish embossed logo.

Ilok 3rd

Work as expected!!!

Nice size. Reliable

This does exactly what I expected it to, and it is also smaller than I expected (which is a good thing). I am so glad I got this 3rd generation iLok.

Works great and I've had no issues!

I bought the 3rd Generation iLok a few weeks ago, and it works great! I've had no bugs or issues with it, and it holds all my licenses great!

This new ilok 3 it's awesome, works very good, it's super tiny and durable. You can have x3 times the license on your ilok 2 (no big deal) it's a must have for the engineer on the go as well if you have multiple set ups, it won't break so thats pretty cool.

Works as needed so far.

I had a little difficulty registering this product. All screw ups on my end of the deal! Sweetwater was very helpful in assisting me and solving my problems.
