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.
