CX-One from Omron Electronics LLC makes it so you don't have to enter the same information twice in order to manage projects from sequencing and motion control to configuration of field devices.
Version 3.2 expands the communications networks supported by adding EtherNet/IP, CompoNet and Profinet. Recently introduced Omron automation products now supported by CX-One include the CJ2H-CPU programmable automation controller, NS15 15-inch HMI, and PLC-based high-speed position controller modules for CJ and CS platforms. Industry standard, tag-based programming using CJ2H-CPU via EtherNet/IP helps shorten program development time and troubleshooting. CX-One helps meet the market demand for fast additions and changes in production models, volumes and line compositions after the equipment is in operation, and supports traceability and other global requirements for quality, safety and environmental needs. It now includes IEC 61131-3 programming languages including Sequential Function Chart and Structured Text.
The simulation application eliminates the need to have PLC and HMI hardware connected to develop and debug programs, and it integrates the operations of devices for error simulation without having to test each separately. Integrated simulation can be started from either CX-Programmer or CX-Designer to clearly simulate the interaction between HMI and PLC programs. System errors are checked and debugged directly from CX-One. Operations can be saved in CSV files when errors occur to simplify test report generation.
In deploying networks, CX-One uses one connection to reduce network design time. The process of setting up routing tables has been simplified as they can now be set and transferred by routing them from one location to all the PLCs on a network of the same layer.
Data can be backed up, compared and restored for all PLC units or specific PLC units at the target PLC. Support Software connections to PLCs use PLC name verification to prevent incorrect connections. Tags can be used with CJ2 CPU units to access data through EtherNet/IP using an NS-series HMI. Address changes at the PLC normally can be made without affecting the rest of the system. CX-One V3 supports Microsoft Windows Vista.
