Write a program to implement the box-stacking process illustrated in Figure 8-41. This application requires the control of a conveyor belt that feeds a mechanical stacker. The stacker can stack various numbers of cartons of ceiling tile onto each pallet (depending on the pallet size and the preset value of the counter). When the required number of cartons has been stacked, the conveyor is stopped until the loaded pallet is removed and an empty pallet is placed onto the loading area. A photoelectric sensor will be used to provide count pulses to the counter after each carton passes by. In addition to a conveyor motor start/stop station, a remote reset button is provided to allow the operator to reset the system from the forklift after an empty pallet is placed onto the loading area. The operation of this system can be summarized as follows:

• The conveyor is started by pressing the start button.

• As each box passes the photoelectric sensor, a count is registered.

• When the preset value is reached (in this case, 12), the conveyor belt turns off.

• The forklift operator removes the loaded pallet.

• After the empty pallet is in position, the forklift operator presses the remote reset button, which then starts the whole cycle over again.
