Resolution

No.  A warning flag will not prevent you from building a project.  This flag is calculated based on the worst case scenario for what the modules can handle.  A more accurate calculation would be to take into account the actual current draw of the field devices being used.  If there is no configuration software, then the calculation would have to be done manually.  Adding another PDT will increase actuator or sensor power.  Also if the current draw is actually above the allowable limit, the PDT fuse(s) will be blown.
