Hämta Automation Builder-program

Automation Builder finns som Basic-, Standard- och Premium-versioner som passar behoven för små projekt och som kan hantera utmaningarna med många och stora projekt för OEM-leverantörer och systemintegratörer.

Börja arbeta genast: Första gången du startar Automation Builder efter installationen kan du välja mellan olika licenser:

  • 30 dagars gratis provlicens – som öppnar standard- och premiumfunktioner
  • Gratis Basic-version
  • Köpt standard- eller premiumlicens (du kan aktivera licensen när som helst i Automation Builder i Tools > Install additional license).

Livscykelsupport: När du installerar Automation Builder kan du inkludera tidigare versionsprofiler i din installation för att bibehålla kompatibilitet med projekt som har genomförts i tidigare versioner av Automation Builder. Alternativt hittar du installationsfiler för valda tidigare versioner i ABB-biblioteket nedan.
