Connect incremental encoder output to three devices

Hi all,

I have an incremental encoder that is currently feeding into a high speed counter on a micrologix 1500. We have two new ink jet printers which originally the plan was that I would send a pulse to in order to signal I want to print.

However the printers can also take an encoder square wave to help with speed adjustments. Is it possible to simply chain the outputs from the encoder to the PLC HSP, then two printer 1, then to printer 2?

Thanks for help on a potentially stupid question

edit: all devices are within a few meters of each other
