In just a few short years, safety in plants has changed significantly. I just visited the Rockwell Automation Fair where Rockwell Automation was demonstrating a free safety automation building tool:

Control and saftey

Certainly, its very efficient approach to provide control and saftey over the same ethernet network. Manufacturing plants can save up alot of energy by doing so and also increase there production by making the whole system more decenteralized.

you are right, a better control and more safety will result in a better product and more output with quality with less hassel.

I agree taimoortariq. There is the added benefit in set up, since you don't have to run as many wires.
