FA Communications Software Lets You Create Applications with Flexible, High-speed, and Direct Data Link Access to PLCs from Personal Computers.

The need for faster transmission of more and more information between personal computers and PLCs is coupled with the need for frequent changes to specifications, such as address allocations in PLCs, a demand for software standardization to eliminate dependence on specific applications and networks, and a demand for cost reductions.

OMRON provides the functions to solve these problems. Data links are now possible using Ethernet. Data links can even be accessed via a LAN port on a notebook computer. And FA Communications Software can be used to access PLC data by using only tag names to enable more flexible and higher-speed access of PLC data from personal computers, and that lowers costs by eliminating the need for a special board for data links.

Windows 10 (32bit / 64bit version*) / Visual Studio 2015 (32bit/64bit version*) supported

WS02-SGWC1 / CPLC1 Features 3

* This software runs on WOW64 (Windows-On-Windows 64). Customer application must be run as 32bit process.
