I am very new to using PLC’s and HMI’s but for my current project I am tasked to have an E3X-HD sensor sense parts moving across a conveyor and increment a counter on the PLC (V350-35-R34). I was told I would get training for this PLC+HMI but it was not provided. I would appreciate it if someone could help me even just get the PLC/HMI to even talk with the sensor if it is at all possible. Thank you!

It looks like this sensor has a digital output that you would connect to one of the PLC digital inputs. You can find an install guide in pdf form on the Unitronics web site, but here is a screen capture of the relevant section:

By the way, Unitronics has provided a lot of training that you can access on You Tube. Also, the help file and example projects that were included with your VisiLogic installation should help move your training along greatly.

Thank you very much @Flex727, I will look more into the help files and try to get a better understanding of them in order to program what I need. I’ll keep this up to date if I don’t get it working for whatever reason.
