I have one question about monitoring of AC500 with PC (Personal Computer)
I know that Automation Builder standard has Panel Builder for Touch Panels. now I want to know that can we use this software (DM200) for monitoring from Personal computer? (not Visualization) or we must only use Compact HMI?

The DM-200 Tool is basically the catalogue name for the license key required to activate the Automation Builder-Standard Software on a PC (This software allows for configuring and programming several ABB products such as AC500 PLCs, ABB Drives, ABB Robots, CP600 HMI etc from a single platform).
For control and monitoring of the process logic running in the PLC, any SCADA system with an OPC client connectivity (CHMI, zenon etc.) can be used.
The license is generally delivered as a serial key. The license thus activated using the serial key can also be transferred to an external license container which the ABB product catalogue refers to as DM-KEY.
