Assembler Lab 3

Last of 3 labs involving the Assembler Scene. For this lab, the students must work in pairs to transfer information, via ethernet (learned from a previous lab not posted here), from one PLC to another. They are required to start with the PLC Program and Scene created for Lab 2 but must now add two vision sensors so that each student’s scene can only assembly one color (upstream is blue, downstream green). All files are contained in the attached zip. As always, please feel free to use for education purposes.

After reviewing my files, it seems there are a few minor mistakes in the PLC2 program. A correction has been posted.

I’ve posted a few more videos on my YouTube Channel (no adds, no clickbait) that relate directly to Lab 2 and Lab 3.
