Certain conveyors stop and start based on photo eye

Hello, I'm new to Flexsim. I try to simulate how my transport is behaving when the operator is delayed. When the pick point and the green conveyor in front are fully loaded, the outlined conveyors have to stop. I'd like to do this when photo-eye PE01 is blocked (about 2.5 sec). After photo-eye PE02 has been released, the stopped conveyors may resume.

I have attached the model. Thanks in advance!

Connect a motor to those conveyors and with a block delay time on PE1 stop the motor using the OnBlock trigger (default motor reference 'conveyor.motor'). Use the onClear of PE2 to reference the motor directly to resume it.
