Hopper unrestrained drop test data
Understanding the traces
- Each downward spike represents a drop in voltage as the bend sensor in
the catch box is bent by a paintball and its electrical resistance increases.
The length of the spike reflects how far the sensor was bent, which depends
primarily on the exact position at which the ball strikes the sensor, and
alignment with other balls. Smaller spikes trail some of the larger
spikes, indicating oscilation or wobble in the sensor as it springs back
to a straight position after being struck by a ball.
Comments - The Apache
gives noticably more consistent feeding at the start than the 2KX which
exhibits a delay after the first few balls drop before more begin feeding.
Comments - The Z Board
trace shows mors consistent feeding than the stock eVLution 2, which exhibits
gaps in its free feed pattern.
Comments - Similarly, the HALO Victory board showed a more consistent free feed than the HALO-B.
