Is there a way to activate unused outputs on the DX200?
There's several open spots but in the paperwork they are not addressed at all. Can this be done?

Unless they have been removed or re-assigned from/in the ladder, they are still there available for use.

Is there a method of knowing what physical output they would be pointed at?

you can do it from the teach pendant in the ladder part or on the software ladder editor , you have to create
a link for input/ouput bit
one line is one bit In or Out
a group is for a Byte from the first adress that you definy #200XX

you can check the doc Ladder Editor of yasakwa

I have the drawings, my question was; lets say there are 15 outputs on a junction, but only 3 are being used. In the drawing it only shows those 3 with addresses. Does this mean the remaining outputs aren't useable in any way? Otherwise I have no more available outputs.

I'll attach an example, area in question circled in red

B14-A14-B15-A15

those output are Normally close if they aren't declare you too add it in the ladder part

for exemple  #20040 OUT #00009  and cable the signal + on the thick headed BXXor AXX and the - on the thick headed  - which one you want
try to enable/disable your output and watch your output if the signal change

That was extremely helpful. My only question now is once they are put in the ladder, how do we know the address or which output it is controlling?
For example OUT008 30037 A13 gives me the OUT and the 30037 address. How would I get that and to know what specific output I'm getting? It appears all of our available outputs are already taken except for the B14-A14 examples. I'm just lost on how I can chose one of those specifically. That way I can wire into the correct output at the terminal, just unsure of how to activate it through the ladder.

All of your terminal are full ?

If you associate an output at 300xx your signal is located in the external output .
Try to vary your output ( signal on/off ) and cheek the seeing's output if its good.
If i didnt work try to change 3000XX in a Universal output with 100XX

The robot's CIO ladder (which is essentially a PLC) maps the various bits together.  Everything ultimatley starts off as an external input.  An external input does abosolutley nothing until you map it somewhere.  So, you would map an external input over to a universal input if you wanted to see that status of an input in your robot job.  Likewise you would map an external input to a specific input if you wanted to turn servo power on.

Yeah it appears from the CIO diagram all of our outputs are being used. The remaining open spots in the terminal are only labelled "B15" for example but no address like 300xx at all. So I was trying to see if there was a way to activate or address the ones that aren't occupied.

For example, the normally closed outputs shown in the PDF above. Trying to figure out what it would take to use one since it isn't labelled with an OUT00xx or 300xx
