I want to program an AC800C Controller (PM210), what software shall I use ?
I have Control Builder M 3.1 and 4.1, and I also have Compact Control Builer 4.1, but none of these software have AC800C Controllers to add to the project. Do I have to install a specific extension or something?
Thank you in advance.

I am not so long in ABB to give you exact info regarding CBM, but I found next:
According info from release documents:
CBM 4.1 supports:
AC 800M (PM851, PM856, PM860, PM861(A) and PM864(A))
AC 800M/C Control Software, created with the Control Builder M programming
tool, can be downloaded to and executed on the following hardware platforms.
• AC 800M
• AC 800C
• Advant Controller 250
I have no info for confirmation possibilities...
The AC800C controller was unfortunately removed from ABB's supported range of controllers.
To program it you will need an older version of Control Builder M "Standard" or "Professional" prior to 3.2/7 or after 3.2/16 ( sorry version numbers are from memory, you might want to check these). These versions of Control Builder were released with 800xA System Baseline 2 and are a standalone version of control builder.
Versions between 3.2/7 and 3.2/16 have some serious stability problems and should not be used. You should use the latest version of 3.2 available
