Online debugging of virtual PLCs in the computer

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.

Allows program debugging in a single PLC before the actual system has been assembled. Reduces the total lead time required for machine/equipment development and startup.

  • Integrated into CX-One, Omron's universal software suite
  • All of the debugging functions available in CX-Programmer can be used
  • Cycle time can be checked without the actual PLC system
  • Perform efficient debugging operations that cannot be performed in the actual PLC, such as executing single steps and cycles and inserting break points
  • Several methods can be used to create and replay virtual external inputs


Integrated simulation can be started from either CX-Programmer or CX-Designer. Clearly simulate the interaction between your HMI and PLC programs.

Error generation

No need to use error-generation commands in a program running on the PLC, now system errors can easily be generated in CX-Simulator.
