Just my humble opinion- an IEC61131 codesys based environment is valuable for learning, since it exposes you to multiple languages and applies to multiple manufacturers. It's less proprietary. Mfg's supporting this include Schneider, Wago, Festo to name just a few. I am sure you could find some hardware on Ebay or buy a intro kit which would include software.

I believe the MicroLogix 1100 line is effectively dead. Everything has moved to the Micro800 series. I wouldn't invest in anything related to the MicroLogix line. Stick to the Micro800.
