In this article I'll walk you through the process of looking up Allen-Bradley and Rockwell Software Catalog Numbers and Prices by downloading, installing, and using the free Proposal Works application.

  1. Start by navigating your web browser to www.ab.com:

2) Once there, search on “Product Selection Toolbox”:

3) Then select it from the results:

4) Now on the bottom of the PST webpage select Download (EXE):

5) Once downloaded, double click on the installer. When you get to the “Select Features” screen be sure, at a minimum, you have “Proposal Works” selected. Then complete the installation:

6) Once the install is done, you'll be prompted to run the “Current Updater” so the pricing and catalog number listing in Proposal Works is up to date:

7) Insure “Proposal Works” is selected before clicking on “Check For Updates”:

8) If there are any updates for “Proposal Works,” be sure to click on “Get Selected Updates”:

9) Once Proposal Works is installed, launch it. Then use the “keyword filter” field near the top left of the program to search for the product in question. Next, double click a product category from the filtered list below:

10) This will launch a selection wizard to help you find the exact version of the product you're looking for, along with any accessories you might need:

11) After you click on accept, you'll see the product catalog number and list price shown in the “Equipment List,” as can be seen in the CompactLogix 5380 example below:
