Note: Including models whose production were discontinued.
*1. To connect the NX7/NJ1 Controller, CX-Compolet / SYSMAC Gateway version 1.70 or higher is required.
*2. To connect the NJ3/5 Controller, CX-Compolet / SYSMAC Gateway version 1.31 or higher is required.
*3. Tag data links between SYSMAC Gateway and the NJ/NX-series CPU Unit can be created within the CJ-series
       specifications for variable with basic data type, array variable, and structure variable. SYSMAC Gateway memory
       allocation of structure variable is the same as the CJ-series.
*4. A separate Communications Unit is required.
*5. Specification using tag names is not possible.
*6. It cannot be used for CP1E E-type.
*7. The CP1W-CIF41 is required for the CP1H / CP1L other than CP1L-EM/EL. The CP1W-CIF41 version 2.0 or later is
       required for the CP1E N-type.
