The CX-One is a comprehensive software package that integrates PLC Programming Software with Support Software for setting up Networks, Programmable Terminals, Servo Systems, Inverters, and Temperature Controllers.
CX-One software allows users to build, configure and program a host of devices such as PLCs, HMIs and motion-control systems and networks using just one software package with one installation and license number. This greatly reduces the complexity of the configuration and allows automation systems to be programmed or configured with minimal training.
- One software to support programming PLCs + HMI, networks, motion & drive, regulation & switching and sensor s
- Common look-&-feel for configuration of all devices
- One installation and license number for all software
- On-line registration offers free upgrade, free libraries, FAQ and help

1) System requirements and hard disk space may vary with the system environment.
*2. The following restrictions apply when CX-One is used with Microsoft Windows 7 / Windows 8 / Windows 8.1 /
The following restrictions apply to some application operations.
|If a new Windows 7 / Windows 8 / Windows 8.1 / Windows 10 font
(e.g., Meiryo) is used in a project, the font size on labels may be bigger and protrude
from the components if the project is transferred from CX-Designer running on a
Windows XP or earlier OS to the NS/NSJ.
|Although you can install CPS files, EDS files, Expansion Modules, and Interface Modules,
the virtual store function of Windows 7 / Windows 8 / Windows 8.1 /
Windows 10 imposes the following restrictions on the use of the software after installation.
These restrictions will not exist if application data is installed using Run as Administrator.
If another user logs in, the applications data will need to be installed again.
The CPS files will not be automatically updated.
|CX-Server||Restrictions are imposed on the following functions.
The driver cannot be changed from the default setting if Controller Link is set as the
network type in the Change PLC dialog box.
Online connections will not be possible through Controller Link Boards or SYSMAC
Online connections using FinsGateway as the network type will not be possible from
the CX-Programmer or CX-Integrator.
Communications will not be possible though a CS1 Board and PCI bus.
