What is a VEC file?
Vector shape used by CX-Designer, a program used for designing the screen interface for OMRON's Programmable Terminals (PTs); saves a shape that can act as a graphic on the screen.
You can create new shapes through CX-Designer's Library window. Right click any drawn shape or imported image and choose "Register Shape File" to include it as a VEC file in the Library.
NOTE: OMRON PTs are used for controlling machines through a touch screen interface.
