MicroLogix 1400 with Absolute Encoder
Looking for help programming absolute encoder on 1400

I have a MicroLogix 1400 and an Automation Direct TRD-NA720NWD. I have the absolute encoder wired and can see the inputs change states from on/off. How do I take the grey code and make it useful? The encoder will be going on a press to see press position of 0-360 degrees. Any help will be much appreciated!

Investigate the GCD instruction... it is a grey code converter
