V5 System Requirements

V5 Technical Documentation


This document outlines the requirements for the hardware required to support the SG Systems’ database and software programs, in the event of an on-premises deployment using a client-server relationship.

These are split into 4 main categories that we can look at below.

Table of Contents

1. Server

Each production location requires a server with Static IP to host the following applications:

  • SQL Database – MSSQL Server 2016 Express* or above
  • Database Administrator – MSSQL Server Management Studio
  • SG Systems’ Database
  • SG Systems’ Management Application (importing/exporting of CSV files will be processed here)
  • SG Systems reporting software (TIBCO JasperReports)
  • UltraVNC viewer v1.2.10 (to remotely view Production terminals)
  • Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 1.8 or above – 64-bit

*The express edition of Microsoft SQL server limits maximum database size to 10GB

For each server, SG would recommend a specification that exceeds:

  • Windows Server 2016 or later.
  • 64-bit architecture.
  • 2.8GHz Processor (Quad Core)
  • 500GB Hard Disk Space (10GB initial setup, required space scales with number of terminals).
  • 16GB RAM
  • Network Connection

2. Production/Warehouse Hardware – Terminals/Mobile Tablets/Scanners

Each production/warehouse terminal will communicate with the SQL Database located on the central server with a fixed IP address. The following applications will be installed onto each Production Hardware device:

  • SG Systems’ Terminal/WMS Application
  • Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 1.8 or above – 64-bit
  • UltraVNC Server v1.2.10

In the event that a customer provides their own Production Hardware, the specification must meet or exceed:

  • Windows 10 (IOT, Pro or Home Edition)
  • 2.8GHz Processor (Dual Core)
  • 100GB Hard Disk Space (10GB initial setup)
  • 4GB RAM minimum (8GB recommended)
  • Network Connection (Hardwired or Wi-fi)
  • 1024×768 Minimum Display Resolution
  • 1 x USB Ports (if Barcode Scanner is required)
  • 1-4 Serial RS232 Ports (if Serial Scale Connection required)
  • Barcode Scanners – Programmable for AIM ID and CR/LF suffix

3. Additional Control Center Licenses

The Control Center application can also be installed on local users’ PCs. The requirements for these PCs are as follows:

  • Windows 10 or later.
  • 64bit architecture
  • 2.8GHz Processor (Dual Core)
  • 10GB free hard disk space
  • 8GB RAM
  • Network Connection
  • Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 1.8 or above – 64-bit
  • Unscaled desktop resolution

4. Remote Access/Support

SG Systems support a variety of remote connection methods:

  • LogMeIn Rescue (preferred)
  • TeamViewer
  • Remote Desktop Connection
  • AnyDesk


  • Admin access to install software
