Omron Corp. disclosed that they have released a new version of its universal PLC programming software, adding powerful new features while maintaining the ease of use.

Suitable for programming the full range of Omron PLCs, version 5 of CX-Programmer incorporates a comprehensive library of function blocks for faster, easier programming, and builds in support for additional languages, such as Structured Text, in addition to standard Ladder.

Pre-developed and pre-tested, function blocks allow users to increase machine flexibility while reducing PLC programming time. By providing simple drag-and-drop programming, these blocks make it easy to add complex functionality to a machine without incurring any programming overhead, and without the associated testing time, said the company. Pre-developed functions include monitoring of network connections, monitoring the status of sensors on remote I/O, setting and operating motion control axes, and setting and operating Omron smart sensors, safety controllers and temperature controllers.

Omron added that features such as the function blocks and the ability to use multiple programming languages make CX-Programmer one of the most intuitive PLC programming packages available. Even users with minimal PLC programming experience can begin to build powerful projects and applications easily and quickly, added the company.

CX-Programmer is suitable for use with the full range of the company's PLCs, including the CS1 and CJ1 CPUs, and offers backwards compatibility with previous Omron software packages.
