Keyence scanners are CompactLogix do play nicely and set up in no time.
Setting it up on a Micrologix is a little more cumbersome due to the messaging structure, but still works.

In my experience with most scanners we install a button on the screen or a push button to train the scanner on the correct code. I've found that to be more reliable than having operators manually punch in all of the numbers from a barcode on a hmi. This also eliminates the additional messaging needed and allows you to keep the interface between a Micro and SR to just discrete i/o.

Or just get really wild and add a hand held scanner to send info to the SR! I've had more customer requests for that over the past year or two.
