Yes, I was under the impression that safety signals can not be sent over ethernet but I also want to be able to monitor all systems remotely. So, my thought was that I could use the Banner SC10-2ROE for necessary safety inputs (EStop, Doors, etc) and then send relevant data to a Siemens PLC. The Siemens PLC can then pass data to/from other Banner PLCs and be connected to a Node-Red service for purely monitoring purposes.
The goal I guess would be to pass coords from vision to the robot and signal conveyor movement based on vision as well. Generally, its function is a pick-and-place routine with a couple of extra steps.
As panic mode said, use one safety plc. Then you are flexible, safe and probably cheaper. Never have seen such a complicated design. Exeption would be if all the different components will be independend and programmed by different suppliers.
