Control Systems Configuration Tools

Accelerator Toolkits, Architecture Builder, and Sample Drawings Help Decrease Design Time

Control Systems Configuration Tools

Design and develop your industrial control system easier with a variety of configuration tools that include sample code, CAD drawings, and system architectures that help you determine what size system you might need to build.


Accelerator Toolkits

Batch Application

Our Batch Application Toolkit is a collection of documentation, equipment phases, support routines, and associated HMI components. This collection can assist you in the development of a Batch Solution using Integrated Architecture or the PlantPAx® distributed control system.

Connected Components

Our Connected Components Accelerator Toolkit includes automation engineering design tools for the entire machine control application development. It allows you to concentrate on the intellectual property that produces compelling and differentiating machine features.

EtherNet/IP Toolkit

Our EtherNet/IP Toolkit provides easy to use resources for all phases of your EtherNet/IP implementation (design, configuration, commissioning, and troubleshooting) in one package.

Application Code Libraries for Retired Toolkits

Many of the past Accelerator Toolkits have been replaced with new and improved Application Code Libraries.


System Configuration Drawings

Our system-level configuration drawings provide commonly-used best practices on how to build your architecture. The drawings help you determine what size system you need to build and what products would be most effective.


Integrated Architecture Builder

Use Integrated Architecture Builder (IAB) to layout and validate control systems, and generate proposals and BOMs that provide the details of your control system. The tool provides advanced selection assistance and a graphical interface for designing systems. Those systems can include products communicating over networks like Ethernet/IP and subsystems that have components sharing a common backplane like PLCs. You can add I/O, networks, drives, on-machine cabling and wiring, motion control, and other devices to your system.

Download Integrated Architecture Builder from the Product Selection Toolbox executable file or the mobile app.

Why Use Integrated Architecture Builder

You can use IAB to configure your Logix-based automation systems (which includes the PlantPAx process automation system), select hardware, and generate bills of material. IAB can be used on applications that include controllers, I/O, networks, drives, cabling and wiring, motion control, and other devices.
