Omron CX-One 4.40 is a very handy a suite which will allow you to build, configure as well as a program lots of devices like PLCs, HMIs, networks and motion-control systems. This will reduce the hassle of the software maintenance and management at the End-User as well as OEM level.
Once the Omron CX-One 4.40 is installed, the user can create, configure and program many different devices such as PLCs, programmable terminals, frequency converters and servo drives, intelligent control devices such as thermo-controllers, measuring sensors, multi-axis motion control systems, and of course industrial networks . CX-One greatly simplifies the work of the engineer and minimizes the need for training programming or configuring automation systems.
CX-Designer is the HMI software used for our 5.7 to 15 inch NS HMI series.
CX-Integrator is the network configuration software for CX-One. It provides easy monitoring the connection status of DeviceNet, Ethernet and CompoNet networks, configuration of fieldbus controllers, setting device parameters, and diagnosing networks.
Create, edit, and print the various parameters, position data, and motion control programs (G code), monitor operation of the Motion Control Units.
Reduce the complexity of advanced motion control, create powerful motion solutions quickly using this integrated configuration and programming software for Mechatrolink II based systems.

CX-motion Pro offers an easy and intuitive software environment, helping to program and debug your applications using advanced tools to help you to save time. The software support existing devices, the new PLC version and future developments.
The CX-Position software simplifies every aspect of position control, from creating/editing the data used in Position Control Units (NC Units) to communicating online and monitoring operation.
CX-Process enables the users to program, configure, commission and monitor hybrid control systems using graphical tools for building function block diagrams, connection maps in addition to ladder programs and sequence tables for sequential operations. Commissioning can be performed with simple pre-built HMI screens which allow monitoring of key parameters during this phase . Tag sharing allows easy connection to SCADA HMIs.
CX-Programmer, the programming software for all Omron’s PLC series, is fully integrated into the CX-One software suite. CX-Programmer includes a wide variety of features to speed up the development of your PLC program. New parameter-setting dialogues reduce setup time, and with standard function blocks in IEC 61131-3 structured text or conventional ladder language, CX-Programmer makes development of PLC programs a simple drag & drop configuration.
CX-Protocol creates data communications procedures (protocol macros) to exchange data between standard serial devices and the PLC (Serial Communication Unit or Board).
CX-Sensor allows configuration and monitoring of Omron’s ZX range of sensors via a series of easy to use displays. The graphing dialog allows the outputs from several sensors to be reviewed and compared simultaneously, allowing configuration of complex processes. The software also includes a driver that allows sensor data to be accessed via an Omron serial control unit (SCU) and from other Omron applications such as CX-Supervisor. With the aid of Omron’s CX-Server OPC application it is even possible to monitor sensor data in real time from Microsoft Excel.
A debugging environment equivalent to the actual PLC system environment can be achieved by simulating the operation of a CS/CJ series PLC with a virtual PLC in the computer.
Network Configurator for EtherNetIP is software used to graphically build, set, and manage EtherNet/IP networks. Virtual networks can be created with devices set and monitored using the Network Window in the Network Configurator.

Omron CX-One 4.40 provides a smarter and quicker way to input the programs with less key strokes thus resulting in quicker programming. It provides some intuitive windows, symbol browsing and the tool tip help will let you make less mistakes and the typos. It has got EtherNet/IP setup wizard which will make it quick as well as easy to setup network symbols for the controller-to-controller data link by importing from CX-Programmer. All in all Omron CX-One 4.40 is a very handy suite which will let you build, configure and program various devices like PLCs, HMIs, motion-control systems and networks.
The main differences between OMRON CX-ONE v4.40 and the previous version:
– support for the new operating system Microsoft Windows 7
– a number of improvements in the CX-Programmer program for quicker and easier programming of the PLC:
– “Smart Input” function
– structures for the language of ladder-contact circuits and function blocks (for Internal and In-Out variables) when programming PLCs CJ2 series
– two new data types: TIMER and COUNTER for simpler use of timers and counters in a ladder program
