Agreed. Another option which should be less costly than a PLC would be to use a field logic controller such as this one, I think that would be a lower cost alternative to needing to implement a PLC. We looked at them once and cost wise they aren’t too bad. We use a lot of Turck junction blocks already including their modbus version and this is similar except it gives you the ability to process some logic at the junction block. Wonder if you could hold that status bit latched until the robot consumes it.
