Automation Builder software download

Automation Builder is available in Basic, Standard and Premium editions meeting the needs of small projects and managing the challenges of many and large projects for OEM and system integrators.

Start working immediately: After installation, on the first start-up of Automation Builder you can choose from different licenses:

  • Free 30-day trial license – unlocking standard and premium features
  • Free Basic edition
  • Purchased standard or premium license

    • Licenses can be activated, removed and transferred anytime
    • Availability of network licenses for installation on a license server

Life-cycle support: When installing Automation Builder you can include former version profiles into your installation to maintain compatibility with projects done in former versions of Automation Builder. Alternatively you will find installation files for selected former versions in the ABB Library below.

Latest Automation Builder version (recommended): Automation Builder 2.2

Previous Automation Builder versions:

Automation Builder 2.2 - Features and target hardware

For Automation Builder 2.2 appropriate licenses need to be purchased and activated.

  • Licenses of Automation Builder 2.0 and 2.1 remain valid for Automation Builder 2.2 without any limitations.
  • Licenses of Automation Builder 1.x will not be valid for Automation Builder 2.x.

For details please refer to Automation Builder life cycle documentation below Downloads for Software (Information) or contact your sales representative for upgrade possibilities.

Programmable Drive support is discontinued with Automation Builder 2.2. But Automation Builder can still be used to access previous versions of drive IEC 61131 programming. The successor engineering tool for ACS880, DCS880 and DCT880 programming will be the Drive Application Builder. The first release is planned for Q2 2019.

All tools that are required to configure and commission a drive as a field device connected to the AC500 PLC will remain integrated part of Automation Builder, mainly:

  • Drive Manager
  • Drive composer pro

Note: If you want to upgrade projects with third party safety devices we recommend that you create project archives of your projects BEFORE installing Automation Builder 2.2 (File --> Project Archive --> Save/Send Archive ...).
