The protocol will be an extension of the existing common standard protocol found in DeviceNet and Ethernet/IP. Will allow both standard and safety devices to operate on the same network. It will also allow safety devices to seamlessly communicate across standard DeviceNet and Ethernet/IP networks to other safety devices without additional programming.
