  1. Unconfigured I/O Address Used

    Glad you got it working. Thanks for letting us know.
  2. Unconfigured I/O Address Used

    Those are word level instructions so you are manipulating 16 points at a time. Have a look at the bit instructions. Here's a link to help you. https://www.theautomationstore.com/rslogix-500-training-xic-xio-ote-program-scan-step-by-step/
  3. Unconfigured I/O Address Used

    The I/O is addressed as I:S.W/B where S is the slot, W is the word, and B is the bit.  So you Inputs are I:0.0/0 - I:0.0/13 and your outputs are O:0.0/0- O:0.0/9.
  4. Unconfigured I/O Address Used

    The 1200 doesn't have I/O past I:0.1 on it's base unit.  Are you using expansion I/O?  Can you attached your program?
  5. Machine Step Sequence

    Here is a lesson series we did on different ways to sequence machines including counters, word/bit manipulation, multiplying integers, and sequencing instructions. https://www.theautomationstore.com/rslogix-500-training-programming-machine-sequences-to-do-an-automatic-process/
  6. A decent USB to RS232 adapter should work for connecting your cable to your laptop's USB port.  Here is one we sell. https://www.theautomationstore.com/industrial-usb-rs232-usb-serial-adapter-plc-programming/
  7. When to use HSC

    Yes that is exactly what the high speed counters are for.  While your application is low speed for a high speed counter, you risk missing pulses with regular inputs and ladder logic.
  8. Micrologix 1200 Fault

    Here are instructions on how to navigate to the fault code.  https://www.theautomationstore.com/rslogix-500-the-big-red-fault-finding-understanding-and-clearing/
  9. ML 1100

    It depends on the particular model of the PLC.  Some are 24VDC powered, some are 120VAC powered, and one is 12VDC powered.  What is the complete part number?
