Control Builder - Compact & Professional
What is the difference between Compact Control builder & Control builder Professional?
With 800xA installation DVD i usually find Control Builder Professional.
Is Compact Control builder Part of 800xA or Compact HMI?
What is the difference between both control builders functionally?
Compact CB and CB Professional are part of same packaging, you will get two radio buttons during installation of Control Builder.
Ideally, Compact CB is used when you dont need ABB HMI (or PPA), so that you can use your 3rd party HMI to talk to Control Builder. Hence it does not support your PPA features like, Batch, IM, Function Designer etc. It can't handle SIL programming (no HI controller). So if you are entitled to use them in Non-SIL applications and small enviroments.
The HMI provided fom ABB for Compact CB is Control Digram editor (CMD). So you can always create a small interaction window for your Non-SIL application.
