Where to download free Allen-Bradley (A-B) Variable Frequency Drive (VFD) Software:
The Rockwell Software downloads website, which host’s many legacy software downloads, is where the below link to download Drives Tools comes from:
In the past, Rockwell only offered Drive Explorer Lite for free, but with the release of CCW Rockwell has ended support for Drive Explorer and posted the full version as freeware on it’s website.
CCW is free programming software for the Micro800 family of programmable controllers, the PanelView Component HMI, as well as for Allen-Bradley PowerFlex drives. In fact, its the only VFD software which supports Rockwell’s new PowerFlex 523 and 525 (as well as the rest of the PowerFlex line)
Version 6.1 has so many new features that I highly recommend upgrading to it. As CCW requires a fairly current version of RSLinx and ControlFlash, both are included in this large download.
I hope the above links to download free software to program Allen-Bradley drives is helpful. If you have any comments or suggestions please leave them with us by using the “Leave a reply” form at the bottom of this page.
