Control Builder F Tutorial
Hi all, i am searching for a beginners guide (video or document) to control builder F. The getting started manual (Document number: 3BDD012560R0503) i saw was not detailed enough (i am new to freelance).
My background is siemens, but I have configured and programmed a small project on control builder M in the past (but that was a long time ago). I was thinking the interface will be same but was disappointed after purchasing the hardware.
What is the difference between the control builder M and builder F (I mean why is there a need for the two different softwares)?
I will really appreciate any help i can get.

The whole thing with two differen software suites is simple - Control Builder M is a part of 800xA system, an Extended Automation DCS, where as Control Builder F is one and only Engeeniring tool in Freelance, an Essential Automation DCS. As both systems are very different at the core, the tools are also different.
The easiest way to start with Freelance (Control Builder F) is Quickstart Tutorial DVD. You can get it for free and there is Demo software, Video Tutorial and full documentation on it.
