Omron Creates CX-Thermo Support Software for Easy Set-up, Monitoring

6/28/2005 - Omron's (TSE: 6645)(US: OMRNY) CX-Thermo support software has been specially developed for use with the company's E5CN, E5EN, E5AN, E5ZN, E5AR and E5ER temperature controllers. Running on a standard PC under Windows, CX-Thermo enables faster parameter set-up, easier device adjustment and simpler maintenance. It dramatically reduces the time and effort needed to set and manage temperature control parameters, providing advanced creating, editing and batch-downloading functions.

As well as setting parameters, CX-Thermo provides graphical online monitoring of set point, process value and manipulated value. The powerful software can monitor up to 31 temperature controllers at a time. A graphical tuning tool is also included, providing a simple interface where the controller can be set to tune for optimum stability, reduced overshoot or better disturbance rejection.

A further feature, using parameter masking, provides the ability to 'hide' parameters that are either unused or which might confuse operators. Use of this feature enables customised menus to be created.

CX-Thermo allows users to save and archive parameter files to a PC, as well as to export saved files as standard CSV or HTML files. Previously created or archived CSV files can also be imported into CX-Thermo. The software also provides two parameter viewing modes - basic and expert - allowing the user interface to be tailored to individual requirements.

When commanded to do so, CX-Thermo searches automatically for connected temperature controllers, recognising individual model numbers. In addition, it is equipped with an autopilot function for connecting to the trend monitor. CX-Thermo has been developed to work seamlessly with CX-One - Omron's comprehensive, single software package for complete machine automation - with both packages sharing the same folders.
