CCW 7 SplashLast week Rockwell's Connected Components Workbench (aka CCW) Version 7 became available for download from Rockwell HERE.

The standard package weighs in at a hefty 1.5gb, and also contains the latest RSLinx Classic installer package, version 3.70.

Rockwell recommends running CCW on an Intel i5 with 8gb of RAM. These are pretty steep specs, having more in common with the latest Call of Duty game, and well outside of the specs of Rockwell's latest “performance” panel PC's.





So what's new in CCW Version 7?

Here's some highlights from the product release notes:

Update Notifications

Rockwell's Current updater will now notify users if a new release is available, however it won't actually download the updates.

CCW 7 InstallSamples Folder

Now when you install CCW you also get a folder full of sample projects, code, and user defined function blocks.

Usability Enhancements

Apparently a lot of work has been put into usability in this release. The enhancements include updated right click and file menus, as well as graphical tweaks to the Ladder and Function Block editors.

Micro800 Enhancements

These include Data Protection for the 830 and 850, a new retentive timer instruction, variable import / export, and improved diagnostics.


The full path to download CCW is below:
