AC 80 Controller(PM825) and AdvaBuild
I want to connect to AC 80 controller(PM825) and program it. I found a document about it! Based on this document I could program it by so called application "AvdaBuild". Actually I couldn't find it and it seems this application is not support by ABB anymore!
Now I'm wondering if it's possible to do it with early versions of Control Builder or what!?
thanks in advance

The AC80 Controller is a modified AC70 with adaptions for Sectional Drives Control. It is programmed using Control Builder A with Function Chart Builder (FCB).
The AC80 controller is in "classic" life cycle , which means that the programming software and support for it are still available through your local ABB supplier. AC70 and AC80 can be programmed with the latest release of FCB. Note however, that the AC80 requires additional libraries on top of the standard AC70 options.
If you already have Control Builder A for Advant Master on your site ( eg you are an MP200 or AC400 customer ) then you should already have a license for control builder. In this case, all you need are the additional libraries. It is possible that you *might* be able to program the AC80 using just the standard AC70 libraries, but I have no way to test or confirm this for you.
( The name "AdvaBuild" was a marketing name for a range of engineering tools including Control Builder A )
