i want to communicate micrologix 1200 with AB optical encoder. if i power up encoder with 24v supply taken from micrologix and connect it at input 0 (I:0/0) HSC input, would it be giving me pulses acoording to the motion of shaft on which encoder is mounted? would it require some other settings?

Yes, but before doing so you have to make a translation between your encoder (ppr) and distance, that means that your ppr should be converted to distance. You don´t need any other equipment, so check your encoder specs and that´s all.
