for AC500 you need Automation Builder 1.1 free download from ABB site, but with limited performance.
It's depending what you need in your automation...., for DCS you probably need to use AC700 or AC800 series, more information in ABB site., for example
Hope this help you
As for AC500 PLC family see flaviomussolin's answere above.
You should also know that AC 700F and AC 800M can be used as a PLC-like solution as a part of Compact Product Suite. In this case You will need engineering software pulled from mother-DCS of these controller, namely Control Builder F for AC 700F (mother-system here is Freelance, an Essential Automation DCS system, which may also intrest You if a PLC-like solution is needed) or Control Builder M for AC 800M (mother system here is 800xA, an Extended Automation system).
Hope it helps You a little,
