CX-One Version 4.0: Better Than Ever

Easy and intuitive operation to reduce the work involved in programming.

  New Feature 1: Smart Input 

A Smart Input Function greatly reduces the work required to input programs

Steps required to input ladder diagrams, now reduced by 50%, 
compared to CX-Programmer Version 8.
A complete range of intuitive programming functions is provided, including instruction and address input assistance, address incrementing, and address Incremental Copy.
These functions enable waste-free programming with minimal effort.

  New Feature 2: Memory Operation Preview 

Easier Preliminary Verification of Position Control Units

The memory operation data created on the CX-Programmer for CJ1W-NC[][]4 Position Control Units can be used to display graphs and motion paths for the position or speed operations of each axis. This enables smoother startup and reduces the work required for preliminary system verification.

*This function will be supported for EtherCAT-compatible Position Control Unit in the near future.

  New Feature 3: Easier Network Link Setting 

Easier Setting of Tag Data Links for EtherNet/IP

Just drag and drop on the network configuration display of the Network Configurator to create tag data links for EtherNet/IP networks.

  New Feature 4: Reusable Designs 

Easily Reuse Legacy Programs

Data Structures:
In addition to arrays, which can be used to manage data with the same data type, data structures can be used to manage data with different data types in the same structure. And the data structures are managed using names and data types rather than I/O memory addresses. Using data structures enables building legacy programs for data processing that can be easily reused.
Easier data management

Timer and Counter Data Types:
Timer and counter data types can now be treated as symbols.
You can thus use them as symbols in arrays to build legacy programs that can be easily reused.

Applicable Models: CJ2

Easy connection with USB

A standard USB cable can be easily connected to the USB port on the front of the CPU Unit.

 connection with USB


Easy Connection with EtherNet/IP

Easy connection by specifying the computer LAN (Ethernet) port and IP address only.
 Connection with EtherNet/IP
* CJ2 (built-in EtherNet/IP) CPU Units only.


Prevent Connection Errors by Verifying PLC Names

The CJ2 CPU Unit can record a PLC name. Errors in transfers can be prevented ahead of time because the PLC name can be compared with what is in the project file when connecting online.

Easy Setting of Tag Data Links for EtherNet/IP

In addition to creating data links with the EtherNet/IP Datalink Tool using I/O memory addresses, you can also use network symbols for tags to easily create the data links.

With EtherNet/IP, high-speed, high-volume data links can be created with different cycle specifications for each applications, regardless of the number of nodes.

*CJ2 (built-in EtherNet/IP) CPU Units only.

Supports EtherNet/IP and CompoNet



Time Required for Onsite Startup and Debugging Has Been Significantly Reduced

With CX-One version 4.0, debugging is efficient with simultaneously monitoring and management of multiple networks and PLCs.

Management of Multiple Networks

The operation of networks with configurations consisting of multiple networks including PLC networks such as EtherNet/IP and Controller Link, field networks such as DeviceNet and CompoNet, and networks for Programmable Terminals and Serial Devices, can be restored simultaneously from the CX-One.

Onsite start up and debugging can be conducted efficiently and without errors because PLCs and devices can be selected from the window to transfer programs and parameter data to the computer during operation.

Using CX-Integrator

Ladder Diagram Monitoring for Multiple PLCs

Multiple PLCs can be monitored by displaying them in series on the screen. This way it is easy to debug data links between PLCs and monitor the inputs and outputs of different PLCs.

Using CX-Programmer

Screen Designing using CX-Designer / NV-Designer

The CX-Designer Simplifies the Processes from Screen Design to Debugging for the NS-series Programmable Terminals

The time required for designing can be significantly reduced because of the compatibility with SYSMAC CJ-series PLCs. The process of designing screens is easier with expanded functionality.

Applicable Units: NS Series, NSJ Series

Communications Components and the Smart Active Parts (SAP) Library Significantly Reduces the Time Required to Create Ladder Diagrams and Screens

There are over 3,000 Smart Active Parts that can directly access OMRON PLCs and components. Simply select and paste a part from the SAP library onto the screen. Detailed screens and ladder diagrams do not need to be created.

Immediate creation of Temperature Controller Settings and Monitor 

Using Software Components, Error Checking and Parameter Setting Can Be Done without a Computer

There are many software components in the Software Function SAP Library that can be easily incorporated into the NS-series Programmable Terminals.

Simply select and paste software components on the screen. Device errors can be checked and parameters set without a computer.

 Tool (Software Function SAP Library)

Use the NV-Designer to Easily and Quickly Design Screens for the NV Series of Compact PTs

Improve productivity of motion network servo systems using MECHATROLINK-II for design, startup, and maintenance.

Easy Management of Parameters While Still Connected to PLCs


Settings can be modified while connected --> Wiring can be 
checked while connected. Operation can be checked while connected.


Even Easier to Start Up a System


Programming is easy --> Debugging programs is easy --> 
Checking operation is easy.

Control of Temperature Controller using CX-Thermo & CX-Process Tool


The CX-Thermo/CX-Process Software Supports High-level Temperature Control.

Setting Temperature Controller Parameters Is Easier


Parameters can be easily set from a list:
 space, parameter property window, output window, parameter list.

  • Easy Parameter Settings

    Parameters can be set even for Temperature Controllers that do not support communications.
    Parameters can be saved, and then copied, or reused and edited (Parameters can be exported in CSV or HTML format.)

  • Displays Only What Is Used

    To avoid unintentional use of parameters, unused parameters can be masked (i.e., hidden)
Applicable Units:
*The DeviceNet type is excluded

Programming for the Process Controller Is Easier

CX-Process Tool

Control Programs can be constructed by pasting function blocks:

Project workspace, content check (block diagram, etc), output 

  • Control Can Be Customized

    Control programs can be constructed by pasting function blocks and connecting them. They can be used for simple PID control, program control, and cascade control.

  • Easy Creation of an HMI

    Screens for the NS-series PTs (NS runtime screen) are automatically generated from the function block programs. Standard control screens and tuning screens do not need to be created manually.
