CX-One Programmer: A Comprehensive Software for Omron PLCs
CX-One Programmer is a type of programming software that is suitable for any series of Omron PLCs. The software is fully integrated into the CX-One software suite, which also includes support software for setting up networks, HMIs, servo systems, inverters, and temperature controllers. CX-One Programmer offers a wide variety of features that can speed up the development of your PLC program, such as:
Structures and arrays: You can create advanced programs using data blocks of identical data types (arrays) or different data types (structures). You can easily access the member symbols of the new user-defined type from the program, and monitor them in the watch window by using their name. You can also use structures and arrays as input/output variables for a function block, which provides a simple way of passing many parameters in a uniform layout.
Timers and counters: You can use special data types for timer (count-down) and counter (count-up) symbols, which greatly simplify the use of timers/counters in ladder programs. You can simply access them by using their name to reset and check them. You can also define a symbol of type timer or counter and let the software automatically allocate and manage the memory for it. You can even use arrays of timers and counters.
