Item
CX-Designer
NS system software
Integrated simulation
Previous versions
Version 1.0 (NS-CXDC1-V1)
Version 6.2 or 6.5
The only function available was simulated
testing of PT screen operations on a personal computer.
Symbol programming without
addresses
Symbol names, addresses, and comments
were entered in symbol tables. Then the
required symbols were selected from the
symbol tables when creating screens.
Multi-vendor connectivity
Not supported.
Data security
The following two types of data transfers
are possible between CX-Designer (running on a personal computer) and a PT:
• Data transfers with the PT.
• With data transfers using a Memory Card,
data can be uploaded and downloaded by
any user.
User security
Any of five levels of passwords could be set
for each functional object. A dialog box asking for the password was displayed each
time an attempt was made to use a functional object for which a password had
been set, and the object could not be used
unless the password was input.
Consecutive line drawing
Not available.
x
New version
Version 2.0 (NS-CXDC1-V2)
Version 6.6
Using a personal computer, a virtual PT
can be connected to a virtual PLC (CXSimulator) or to an actual PLC, and the
operation of the entire PT-PLC system can
be simulated. This makes it possible to
reduce the total time involved in debugging.
Symbol names and comments can be input
for symbol tables with no addresses. This
allows screens to be created using symbol
names without inputting addresses. Entering symbols in screen designs without
addresses makes it possible to reduce the
total time involved in design.
It is now possible to connect OMRON NSseries PTs to Mitsubishi FX-series PLCs,
A-series PLCs, and Siemens S7-series
PLCs.
A password can now be set for creating
data. When data with a set password is
transferred to a PT, the password is then
required in order to upload the data. This
prevents users who do not know the password from obtaining that data from the PT.
In addition, a password can be required to
transfer data to the PT. This prevents data
from being accidentally overwritten.
Once a user inputs the password to use a
functional object for which a password has
been set, the password does not have to be
input again as long as the user continues
using only functional objects for which
lower level passwords have been set. Functional objects with a higher-level password
cannot be manipulated. (A warning message will be displayed if an attempt is
made.) This makes it possible to create
applications that permit only the necessary
operations by users who have entered
passwords, and thus helps prevent faulty
operations.
Data in memory is treated as X and Y coordinates, and straight lines are drawn
between the applicable coordinates to create consecutive line drawing. This makes it
possible to handle applications involving
the drawing of various graphics in twodimensional space that could not be drawn
using the existing graph components.

however, just as before.) In addition, neither
version-1 nor version-2 PTs are reset when
starting or ending the Ladder Monitor when
Ladder Monitor version 2.8 is used. These
improvements make the Ladder Monitor
easier to use and reduce operating time.

Multilingual system capability
The system supported two languages:
English and Japanese.
Multifunction Objects
Macros were required in order to executed
multiple processes for a single functional
object.
Machine Navigator function
Multiple objects, such as frames, labels,
and bitmaps, were used to change displays
such as on-screen characters and BMP
files. Contents of displays were set individually, which was time-consuming and made
maintenance troublesome.
Flicker function
The only flicker method for objects was display color inversion.
Improved alarm/event summary and history display
Fonts
xii
When the history was displayed using the
Alarm/event Summary & History command,
the same alarm/event was displayed in
multiple places for each date of occurrence.
This made it difficult to check the frequency
of occurrence.
In addition, in some cases there were many
items to be displayed and not all of them
could fit on the screen.
Raster fonts could be set for objects with
changing display character strings, such as
numeric displays and inputs. Rounded
areas became rough, however, when the
font size was increased.
New version
Version 2.1
Version 7.0
It is now possible to connect NS-series PTs
to the following devices.
• OMRON Trajexia Motion Controllers
• Yaskawa MP-series Machine Controllers
• Yaskawa F7-series Varispeed and VS
Mini V7-series Machine Controllers
• Mitsubishi Q-series PLCs
System memory can now be allocated to
PLC memory areas in the same way as for
the NT Series, enabling PLC ladder programs to be easily transferred when migrating from the NT Series to the NS Series.
It is now possible to display at the next startup the screen that was being displayed
when the program was closed.
In addition to English and Japanese, the
system now also supports German,
French, Italian, Spanish, and Chinese (both
traditional and simplified).
Multifunction Objects have been added to
functional objects.
With Multifunction Object, multiple processes can be registered and can then be
executed with the press of a button.
Processes that previously required the creation of macros can now be executed by
simply setting properties.
A Machine Navigator function and a functional object contents display function have
been added. Machine Navigator provides
unified control of text and image files (i.e.,
“contents”) to be displayed, and the new
display function displays those contents.
Contents requiring association can be
managed in ID units, and the display can
be easily changed by simply changing the
ID specification.
The following flicker methods have been
added.
• Display/hide (entire object or label)
• Flicker color specification (fill color, character, and line colors)
A function has been added to provide a
summary of a particular alarm/event on a
single line, making it possible to quickly
check conditions without unnecessary displays.
A horizontal scrolling function has also
been added to allow all items to be
checked.
Scalable fonts have been added to enable
smooth displays. Gothic numeral and 7segment displays have also been added to
allow more attractive and up-to-date
screens to be created.

Section 1-1
Features of the CX-Designer
1-1
Features of the CX-Designer
The CX-Designer is software that can be run on Windows XP, Vista, or 7 to
create screen data for NS-series Programmable Terminals (PTs).
The CX-Designer has a variety of functions to enable efficient screen creation
and debugging.
Project Workspace
The entire project structure can
be displayed in a directory tree.
Property List
Functional object property
settings can be changed and
checked without having to open
a properties dialog box.
Edit Screens
Screen data displayed on the PTs
can be created for a group of objects.
Output Window
Displays data such as search
results and error details.
1-1-1
Features
Screens Can Be Created
Using Symbols
Symbols can be used with the CX-Designer. Symbols are addresses to which
names have been assigned. In addition to the existing method of directly
inputting addresses to be browsed by functional objects, the addresses can
also be set by using symbols (names). When the address allocated for a symbol is changed, the address is changed for all objects that access that symbol.
This makes it easy to change address allocations and reuse screens. Symbols/variables can also be shared between the CX-Designer and CX-Programmer/Sysmac Studio by copying the symbols/variables from CXProgrammer symbol tables or Sysmac Studio variable tables to the CXDesigner.
Refer to 4-1 Creating Screens Using Symbols for details.
Project Management
Using Project Workspace
Screens, alarms, and other common settings can be displayed in a directory
tree in the CX-Designer project workspace. Projects are easy to manage
because the entire project structure can be checked at a glance.
Screens and settings can be copied between multiple CX-Designer project
workspaces. Screens can also be copied within the same project workspace.
Refer to 4-2 Using Screens from Other Projects for details.
Easy Reuse of Screens
Screens and settings can be copied between multiple CX-Designer project
workspaces. Screens can also be copied within the same project workspace.
The common settings accessed by screens are also copied automatically.
If symbols are used, it also becomes easy to change addresses after screens
have been copied. Refer to 4-2 Using Screens from Other Projects for details.
Screen Classification by
Application for Easy
Management
Screens can be classified into any category, e.g., by application, and displayed in a directory tree. When screens are created, consecutive screen
numbers are automatically applied to screens in the same category. These
numbers can also be changed. This makes screen management even easier.
Refer to 4-3 Classifying Screens by Application for details.

Section 1-1
Features of the CX-Designer
Functional Object
Property Settings Using
Property Lists
Functional object settings can be changed and checked without having to
open a dialog box.
When more than one object is selected, common settings for those objects
can be changed in one operation from the property list.
Refer to 4-4 Checking and Changing Functional Object Properties without
Opening Property Setting Dialog Boxes.
Edit Properties from Lists
Properties of objects on the screen can be displayed in table format and the
settings changed.
Settings for more than one object can be changed at the same time and consecutive addresses can be automatically set.
Refer to 4-5 Listing and Editing Functional Object Properties for details.
Select and Display
Specified Objects
Objects on the screen can be listed and specified objects selected. The
screen display can also be limited to specified objects.
This makes it easy to check and change the property settings for overlapping
objects.
Refer to 4-6 Editing Overlapping Objects for details.
Find Macros
Embedded macros can be listed.
This improves debugging efficiency by no longer requiring individual object
property settings to be opened to find objects that use macros.
Refer to 4-9 Searching for Embedded Macros for details.
Automatic Transfer of
Edited Data Only
Once screens have been transferred to the PT, quick transfers of only the
changed data can be made automatically. Screens are edited and data transferred many times during debugging, so the quick transfer function greatly
reduces transfer time and increases efficiency.
Refer to 4-10 Transferring Only Edited Data to PT for details.
Easy Document Creation
Common settings and property settings for objects in screens can be output in
rich text format (.rtf). The output settings are displayed in a list for easier viewing.
Screen images can also be output to bmp and jpg files.
Refer to 4-11 Creating Documents for details.
Integrated Simulation for
Entire PT-PLC System
(CX-Designer Version 2.0
and Higher)

CX-Designer Functions and Screens
Symbol Table
A symbol table lists the symbols registered to the project.
The CX-Designer can specify symbols as the data to be accessed by functional objects, in addition to directly specifying PLC or other host addresses or
internal memory.
“Symbol” is a name to which an address is allocated. This symbol can be
used instead of the address in the CX-Designer. This allows addresses to be
changed simply by changing the address set for the symbol, instead of opening each screen and changing the property settings for the functional objects
on that screen. In addition, comments can be specified for symbols in the CXDesigner.
The Symbol Table Window can be displayed and hidden by selecting View Window - Symbol Table from the menu bar.
Click Name to

display order
between
descending and
ascending (the
sort function).

Section 3-3
User Interface
Note
(1) Symbols can be added or deleted and functions that use a symbol can be
searched for in the symbol table.
(2) Symbols (communications addresses) to be set can be copied from the
symbol table to the Property List using the drag-and-drop function.
(3) Symbols can also be copied from the CX-Programmer's symbol table or
variables can be copied from the Sysmac Studio’s variable table and then
pasted to the CX-Designer's symbol table. This enables the same symbols/variables to be used by both the CX-Designer and the CX-Programmer or Sysmac Studio.
Library Window
A library object is a group of registered functional and fixed objects together
with their property settings registered as one unit of data.
Objects can be registered as a library object and easily reused in multiple
locations or screens from the Library Window.
The Library Window can be displayed and hidden by selecting View - Window - Library.
Objects can be easily registered and reused, using the drag-and-drop function.

Section 4-1
Creating Screens Using Symbols
4-1
Creating Screens Using Symbols
The CX-Designer can enter addresses as symbols when setting functional
object addresses. (Addresses can also be directly input, the same as for the
NS-Designer. Symbols are automatically allocated in these cases.)
This means that all addresses used in a project can be managed from the
symbol table.
The following operations can be performed easily using the symbol table.
• Changing allocated addresses when the address allocation changes suddenly.
• Reusing existing projects in another system.
Symbols/variables can also be copied and pasted between the CX-Programmer’s and CX-Designer’s symbol tables and between the Sysmac Studio’s
variable table and the CX-Designer’s symbol table.
Also, any I/O allocation table created using Excel or other software can be
used as is in symbol tables.
Register symbol names
for PLC addresses using
CX-Designer and use
symbol names to specify
object addresses.
Register symbol
names for ladder
program and other
PLC addresses using
CX-Programmer.

4-1-1
Changing Allocated Addresses
If an address allocated for a symbol is changed on a symbol table, the change
is automatically reflected in all screens.
This allows allocated addresses to be changed simply by changing the symbol table, instead of opening each screen and changing the property settings
for the functional objects on that screen.
There is flexibility with symbol changes to meet any requirement. The replace
function can be used to globally replace the host and addresses. Symbols can
also be changed individually.
Procedure
1,2,3...
1. Select Symbol Table on the project workspace Common Setting Tab
Page. The symbol table will be displayed.
2. Double-click the symbol for which the allocated address is to be changed
in the symbol table.
3. Change the allocated address in the displayed Address Settings Dialog
Box.
42
Section 4-1
Creating Screens Using Symbols
4. When the changes have been completed, they will be reflected in all functional objects that use that symbol.

Reusing Existing Projects in Another System
When using existing projects in another system, the addresses allocated for
objects can be easily changed simply by changing the addresses in the symbol table.
Procedure
1,2,3...
1. Change the allocated address for each symbol in the symbol table.
2. To replace addresses in the symbol table, right-click the mouse and select
Replace from the pop-up menu that is displayed.
4-1-3
Copying and Pasting Symbols/Variables between Support
Software
Both the CX-Designer and CX-Programmer have symbol tables and can
share their symbol data. The Sysmac Studio has variable tables, and the variable data can be shared with the symbol data of the CX-Designer. (Symbol
data and variable data are essentially the same.)
This means that variables/symbols can be copied between the different types
of Support Software.
43
Section 4-1
Creating Screens Using Symbols
CX-Programmer symbols are copied and
pasted to the CX-Designer symbol table.
The same symbol as the CX-Programmer
symbol is added.
Note
(1) To use tags (network symbols), the same tags must be registered in both
the PT and the host. If network variables (tags) are added or changed in
either the CX-Designer or in the CX-Programmer or Sysmac Studio, copy
them to the other Support Software. Tags are supported by CX-Programmer version 8.0 or higher and Sysmac Studio version 1.0 or higher.
(2) When using a data structure in the CX-Designer, the members of the
structure are registered individually and treated as separate symbols. If
there are array members in the data structure, they can be used as arrays
in the CX-Designer. If the data structure is registered as array, however,
the elements must be registered individually and treated as separate
symbols.
(3) When using the Sysmac Studio and CX-Designer, you can copy and
paste variables from the Sysmac Studio to the CX-Designer, but not from
the CX-Designer to the Sysmac Studio.
(4) To copy structure variables between the CX-Designer and CX-Programmer/Sysmac Studio, CX-Programmer version 9.2 or higher and Sysmac
Studio version 1.0 or higher is required. Structure variables can be copied
and pasted from the CX-Programmer or Sysmac Studio to the CX-Designer, but not from the CX-Designer to the CX-Programmer or Sysmac
Studio.
Procedure
Copying Variables from the CX-Programmer or Sysmac Studio to the CXDesigner
1,2,3...
1. Start the CX-Programmer or Sysmac Studio and open the project that contains the variables to share.
2. Select the symbol from the CX-Programmer symbol table.
For the Sysmac Studio, select Tool − Export Global Variables − CX-Designer to copy the variables.
3. Open the CX-Designer symbol table and paste the symbol.
44
Section 4-1
Creating Screens Using Symbols
4. If a host address is set for the symbol, select the applicable host for the
destination.
Copying CX-Designer Symbols to the CX-Programmer
1,2,3...
1. Select the symbol from the CX-Designer symbol table and copy it to the
CX-Programmer.
2. Open the CX-Programmer symbol table and paste the symbol.
The same symbol as the CX-Designer symbol is added.
4-1-4
Using I/O Allocation Table in Symbol Table
The user can create the required I/O allocation table when creating projects. If
the I/O allocation table is created in the same format as the symbol table, the
I/O allocation table data can be copied as is to the symbol table. This enables
symbols to be created easily from the I/O allocation table.
Copy the I/O
allocation table
created using Excel
and past to the CXDesigner symbol
table.
The I/O
allocations in
the table are
registered as
symbols.
Procedure
1,2,3...
1. Create an I/O allocation table using Excel. Use the following order in the
I/O allocation table: Host, symbol name, type, address, and I/O comment
2. Copy the I/O allocation table.
45
Section 4-2
Using Screens from Other Projects
3. Open the CX-Designer symbol table and paste the symbols.
4-1-5
Creating Screens Using Symbol Names and Then Setting Addresses
Screens can be created using only symbol names even if addresses are not
set. When the addresses are later determined, they can be input collectively
in the symbol table. In addition, if an address allocated as a symbol in the
symbol table is changed, that change is reflected in all functional objects
where that symbol is set.
Procedure
1,2,3...
1. Input the symbol names for the communications address setting locations
for the functional object.
HOST1: Flag 1 HOST1: Flag 2
Screen 1

2. Set or change the addresses for the symbols input from the symbol table
in step 1.
Afterwards set
the addresses in
the symbol table.
3. After the addresses have been set, they will be reflected in all the functional objects that reference the symbols.

Using Screens from Other Projects
Screens from different projects can be copied between project workspaces if
more than one copy of CX-Designer is running at the same time.
46
Section 4-2
Using Screens from Other Projects
If there is an alarm/event display object, data log graph, or other functional
object on the copied screen that accesses common settings, the common settings are automatically copied as well. This means that settings do not need to
be adjusted to use the same common settings in both the source and destination project.
Procedure
1,2,3...
1. Start two copies of CX-Designer and open the source project on one copy
and the destination project on the other copy. Open the project workspace
Screen/Sheet Tab Page.
2. Select the screen to be copied on the source CX-Designer and drag-anddrop the screen to the destination category. The dialog box for setting the
destination screen number and host will be opened.
Select the screen and
drag-and-drop to the
destination.
3. Specify the destination screen number and the address host in the dialog
box. The screen will be copied.
The screen will be copied.
4. The addresses used in the source screen will be automatically copied to
the symbol table in the destination project. The common settings accessed
by screens are also added automatically.
47
Section 4-3
Classifying Screens by Application
■
Copying Screens with Alarm/Event Displays

Creating Multi-language Labels
CX-Designer multi-language displays use Unicode for the character information displayed in a screen. This enables switching the screen between different languages, such as Japanese, English, and Chinese, for display and
setting.
The CX-Designer also has functions to export functional object label strings to
CSV files and import label strings from CSV files, called the CSV import/
export functions.
These functions can be used to edit and set label strings in multiple languages, such as Japanese, English, and Chinese, making it easy to create
multi-language screens.

on the screen and in the numeric displays. Conversely, applicable host
communications address values are changed according to screen button
operations and numeric inputs, and these are used as inputs for user program execution. This enables the simulation of screen operations in conjunction with virtual PLC user program execution.
Note
(1) If a test is performed from the CX-Designer while the CX-Simulator is already running, a connection will be made to the CX-Simulator.
(2) Only one host can be connected to the CX-Simulator. If multiple hosts are set in
a CX-Designer project, use the test tool to change the communications address
values for the hosts that are not connected to the CX-Simulator.
All of the communications address used by the
displayed screen are displayed in a list. For
example, if host SERIALA is connected to the
CX-Simulator, the SERIALA communications
addresses are used as values at the CXSimulator. The values for other host
communications addresses can be changed
using the test tool.
(3) Address values at the CX-Simulator can be changed using the Switch Box Utility.
The Switch Box Utility can be started from the test tool.
(4) The CX-Designer will be minimized when the test is started.

format setting procedure only once.
Items That Can Be Batchset
The objects and items that can be batch-set are listed in the following table.
Settings in the Option
