Intended Audience

1 Intended Audience

1

This manual is intended for the following personnel, who must also have knowledge of electrical systems (an electrical engineer or the equivalent).

• Personnel in charge of installing FA systems.

• Personnel in charge of designing FA systems.

• Personnel in charge of managing FA systems and facilities.

2 Safety Precautions

!Caution When performing any of the following operations, always check the network address and node address of the other node (PLC) and the node address and unit number of the mounted Unit (PLC CPU Bus Unit or Special I/O Unit) or the node address of the Component (DeviceNet Master/Slave or Compo-

Way/F Slave), and be sure that these operations can be performed safely for the current status of the node (Unit or Component):

• Transferring parameter or program data to the other node

• Changing the operating mode of the other node

Unexpected operation may result if parameter or program data is transferred to the wrong node (DeviceNet Master/Slave or CompoWay/F Slave), the operating mode of the wrong node is changed, or the other node is not in a suitable status to receive the program or parameter data or the operating mode change.

!Caution Particularly when changing the target PLC to any PLC other than the relay

PLC, check the node address and node number of the target PLC carefully before executing the change.) Unexpected operation and injury may result if the wrong PLC is set as the target PLC.

Note

• Changing the operating mode

• Transferring or verifying user-set data link tables

• Transferring or verifying routing tables

• Performing I/O table operations (including transferring CPU Bus Unit or

Special I/O Unit parameters)

Operations performed from the CX-Integrator are performed for the target

PLC, which is not necessarily the same as the relay PLC.

!Caution When transferring parameters that have been created or edited on the computer to actual Units (PLC CPU Bus Units or PLC Special I/O Units) or to actual components (DeviceNet Masters/Slaves or CompoWay/F Slaves), or when resetting Units mounted on other PLC nodes or components (DeviceNet

Masters/Slaves or CompoWay/F Slaves) connected via communications with other PLC nodes, always check the identifying numbers of the actual Units or

Components (i.e., the unit numbers and unit addresses or node addresses) before executing the transfer or reset. Unexpected operation and injury may result if parameters are transferred to the wrong Unit or components, or the wrong Unit or component is reset.

xvi

Safety Precautions

2

Observe the following precautions when using the CX-One.

• When saving or opening a project file, always confirm the location of the folder and the file name before executing the save or open. The CX-One automatically switches the folder when saving and opening.

• Before changing the operating mode, always confirm that doing so will not adversely affect system operation.

• Always check the operation of programs and parameters sufficiently before using them for actual system operation.

• Confirm that resetting CPU Bus Units, Special I/O Units, and DeviceNet

Master/Slave Units will not adversely affect system operation before resetting these Units.

Overview of CX-One

Section 1-1

1-1 Overview of CX-One

1-1-1 The CX-One FA Integrated Tool Package

The CX-One FA Integrated Tool Package integrates all of the Support Software for OMRON PLCs and Components. Although previously it was necessary to purchase, install, run, and connect online to the PLC separately for the

Support Software for each Unit, the CX-One now provides an integrated development environment based on the CPS (Component and Network Profile Sheet) for each OMRON Unit or Component. If the CX-One is installed in a single computer, an integrated operating environment can be used all the way from setting OMRON PLC Units through system startup and monitoring to greatly increase system setup efficiency.

1-1-2 CX-One Features

Integrated Software

Management for OMRON

PLCs and Components

Support Software for CPU

Bus Units and Special I/O

Units can be started from the I/O tables.

Component and Network

Profile Sheets (CPS)

• One computer with the CX-One installed provides the Support Software required to handle any OMRON product.

• All of the Support Software can be installed with a single license.

• Files saved from the various Support Software can be centrally managed in one location.

When Support Software is started from the I/O tables (i.e., the Unit Configuration Table registered in the PLC), PLC and Unit settings can be inherited so that they do not have to be re-entered every time Support Software is started.

Note

• CPU Bus Units and Special I/O Units can be set without concern for memory addresses and without relying on operation manuals. Parameter names, selections, and setting ranges are automatically displayed.

• Online, settings for virtual Units on the computer can be compared to the settings in the actual Units, with any differences displayed in orange in the comparison results.

• The Unit configuration in I/O tables is displayed using Unit model numbers.

• Model and unit version checks can be performed when transferring data to actual Units.

• Device types on the network can be confirmed using Unit models.

Component and Network Profile Sheet (CPS) files contain CS/CJ-series Unit definitions or Component definitions within the CX-One. CPS files are provided in XML format. The CX-One uses CPS files to recognize CS/CJ-series

Units. Settings for CPU Bus Units and Special I/O Units are also created based on CPS files.

2-1 Installing the CX-One

2-1-1 Confirmations before Installation

Time Requirements

The CX-One FA Integrated Tool Package integrates all of the Support Software for OMRON PLCs and Components. If the complete CX-One package is installed, between approximately 15 and 45 minutes will be required for installation depending on the performance of the computer.

Precautions for

Installation

• Close all programs running on Windows before starting the installation procedure.

• The CX-One cannot be installed from a network drive, such as a CD drive or hard disk drive shared on a network. Always install the CX-One from a

CD drive on the computer onto which the software is being installed.

• Do not install onto a compressing drive. Recovery will not be possible if file corruption occurs.

• Do not stop the setup process in the middle. Copied files may remain in the installation directory.

• Do not turn OFF or reset the computer in the middle of the installation process. Computer data may become corrupted.

• For Windows 2000, Service Pack 3 or later must be installed. The service pack can be confirmed by selecting Start - Settings - Control Panel -

System. The service pack will be displayed under System on the General

Tab Page of the System Properties Dialog Box. If a service pack is not displayed, no service pack has been installed. Refer to Microsoft's website for service pack installation methods.

• For Windows login users, the administrator or a user with administrator rights must perform the installation. Other users will not have sufficient write permissions and access errors will occur.

• It may be necessary to restart Windows after finishing the installation. If required, restart Windows according to the messages displayed by the

Installer.

2-1-2 Installing the CX-One

The following procedure is for installing the CX-One when none of the Support

Software in the CX-One has been previously installed.

The procedure is written for a CD-ROM, but it is the same for a DVD.

Note

If the complete CX-One package is installed, approximately 2.8 GB of hard disk space will be required (including workspace required for installation).

Check available space on your hard disk before installing software.

1,2,3...

1.

Insert disk 1 of the CX-One installation disks (CD-ROM) into the CD-ROM drive.

(1) Even if the previous versions for Support Software in the CX-One are uninstalled, the folders for the previous versions will remain in C:\Program

Files\OMRON. By default, the project files and other files that were created by the Support Software (e.g., .cxp project files for CX-Programmer) will be in this directory. If this data is to be used by the CX-One, we recommended moving the files to suitable folders after installing CX-One.

(2) Any OMRON Support Software or Communications Middleware that is not included in CX-One will remain installed on the hard disk even after the CX-One is installed. This will not create any particular problems.
