Rockwell's Connected Components Accelerator Toolkit

The Automation School – Nano Basics – Article Banner
Connected Components Accelerator Toolkit WebsiteLike the Connected Components Building Blocks (CCBB,) Rockwell's Connected Components Accelerator Toolkit (CCAT for short) is designed around “component” level devices. However, this “Accelerator Toolkit” is designed for the Micro800 and Connected Components Workbench, where as the “Building Blocks” are designed around the MicroLogix and RSLogix.

Initially, when you download CCAT you get the following building blocks:

  • Motion Control: Kinetix® 3 Indexing Project
  • Low Voltage Drives: PowerFlex® Component-class AC Drives
  • Temperature Control: 900-TC Controller Project

Unlike CCBB, these samples are not just available via folders from a zip file. The CCAT comes with and installs a Windows Application to help you select which CCAT files you would like to open. Fortunately, the files are also available in a folder if you want to access them manually.

Connected Components Accelerator Toolkit ApplicationSimilar to CCBB, each CCAT contains the following:

  • “Quick start” manual
  • Bill of materials in ProposalWorks format
  • Many different “starting” programs in Connected Components Workbench
  • CAD drawings in IEC and NFPA formats for AutoCAD (dwg) and EPlan
And like the CCBB, CCAT is available completely free at the below url:
