Rockwell Automation

, is a comprehensive suite of product selection and system design software tools for OEMs, end users and electrical contractors ordering Allen-Bradley products. These tools are available online or can be installed on customers’ computers.

The toolbox includes:
• ProposalWorks–creates custom proposals and requests for quotes;
• Integrated Architecture Builder–helps develop an accurate bill of materials for custom-configured, Logix-based systems that include automation system components;
• CenterOne–reduces design time to configure motor control centers;
• MotionAnalyzer–provides assistance  in selecting the correct motor, drive and gearbox combinations for motion control applications.
• eCADWorks–offers CAD-like drawings of Allen-Bradley brand products for use in CAD or non-CAD applications;
• MCS Star–designs MCS bus systems complete with mounting system assemblies for MCS starters; and
• RailBuilder–simplifies the design of custom terminal block rails and can automatically identify and place the appropriate jumpers, and barriers and prints reports.
