  1. So, I have thought about creating my own Business for the last few years. With this business I would go shop to shop/factory to factory teaching anywhere from Basic PLC programming to HMI design and integrations. I love to share any bit of my Knowledge/experience with anyone and I have learned this more when at my first engineering job they had me train several guys on how to start up Servo Motor jobs with PLC and HMI's. I really enjoyed helping others learn and get over the hump of intimidation and lack of experience with electronics and such. I have had a lot of different experience from being an Electrician for 5 years to Engineering 10+ years now- (Design, Software, Startups, Service work, Installs, and Management) I then started a career of being a PLC Instructor (part-time for 1 year now) for adults and this too help me with my idea of starting my business. At my instructing school we would get a variety of people anywhere from fresh out of High School to experienced Maintenance guys that want to specialize in PLC and HMI's.  With all of this being said, does anyone think there would be a great amount of need for someone to come your work place and teach Allen Bradley, Omron, and Mitsubishi PLC and HMI and maybe one day down the road Servo Motors and logic for them too? I think that more one on one with a couple trainer lab stations, I could really help not only workers advance themselves but also companies benefit both? I have gone to training for my previous employers, sometimes traveling far away for a week at a time and costing my employer a lot of money where my rate would be much less and on-site of the customer/trainee's. Starting out I have bought several used pieces of PLC's, Input Cards, Output Cards, (Only Allen Bradley for now). I have also bought cases to make my training units more safe and portable. Looking at creating a business name and logo as well as possibly creating a (LLC). It has been a slow but steady process though. Feel free to add anything or comment anything to this with ideas.   Thanks!
  2. Change CIP Service Code

    Hi all, This is my first post here, I read through the FAQ, searched the Allen-Bradley forum and this one for my question but couldn't quite find what i was looking for. My main questions is: Is it possible to programmatically change the service code of a MSG instruction?  It is possible to change the class,  instance and attributes but the application I'm currently writing would be a lot simpler if all I had to create is one instance of the MSG block (and its data) . The only thing stopping me is the service code.   Edit: I'm using a CompactLogix 5380-L306ER   Any input is greatly appreciated!
  3. I am trying to setup communications between RSlinx and Softlogix on Windows 7 PC. I open SoftLogix and configure a CPU and Ethernet module. I then cannot open RSLinx GUI since RSLinx is already running as a service. I stop the service, which automatically removes my CPU from SoftLogix but does allow me to open RSLinx GUI. However I cannot connect to the Softlogix now since it has no PLC. When I try and add a CPU I get a message that RSLogix must be run as a service. However in that situation I cannot open the GUI.
  4. Hello,    I have a Cognex insight 5100 camera connected to Allen Bradley L62 processor. The is working fine since the last year but sometimes the I/O module faults out with error code 16#0022. I looked online it look it needed a Ethernet cable change ( I did that but no results).  Then I looked at the firmware in the I/O module and firmware in the camera and I found a difference. The firmware in the camera is 4.06 and the firmware of I/O module in the PLC is 4.005. Can anyone help me resolve the communication issue ? I want to know how to downgrade the camera firmware or change the revision in the PLC ( which I cannot )    Thanks in Advance
