Frequently Asked Questions

Is the Z2Data Integration a part of Altium 365 or Z2Data subscription?

The Z2Data Integration needs to be bought separately and is not included in any existing subscription. The price is determined by the number of annual part queries. 

To get a free subscription for 150 queries/year, please fill out the form at the top of the page. If you want more queries, please contact our sales team.

What are (unique) part queries and how are they counted?

When you use Z2Data to obtain data for a specific component, it is considered one "part query." Should you need to access the same component's data again within the same annual billing period, it will not count as an additional query — each unique part is queried just once per year for billing purposes.

During the annual cycle, you'll have continuous access to the data for the parts you've queried, including any updates provided by Z2Data. Once the billing cycle ends, access to the previously retrieved data will be suspended. A new query for the part will be necessary to view the most current data after this point, which will then be counted in the new billing cycle.
