Drop Target Bank

Related Config File Sections:

In MPF, you can combine multiple drop targets into drop target banks. The main reasons for doing this are to combine reset coils (since one coil typically resets an entire bank) and to get additional events posted when the entire bank is up, down or in a mixed state.


This is an example:

#! switches:
#!   s_drop_front:
#!     number:
#!   s_drop_middle:
#!     number:
#!   s_drop_back:
#!     number:
#! coils:
#!   c_drop_reset:
#!     number:
    switch: s_drop_front
    switch: s_drop_middle
    switch: s_drop_back
    drop_targets: front, middle, back
    reset_coils: c_drop_reset
    reset_on_complete: 1s

Monitorable Properties

For dynamic values and conditional events, the prefix for drop target banks is device.drop_target_banks.(name).


: Boolean (true/false) which shows whether every target in this bank is complete (down).


: Number of drop targets in the bank that are in the down state.


: Number of drop targets in the bank that are in the up state.
