Dual Channel Spring Compression System

Dual Channel Spring Compression System

D.C.S.C.S 

The "Dual Channel Spring Compression System" is a system consisting of two compressed springs who discharge at a moments notice after a user decides to prime the system. Due to the requirement of two springs being compressed a prior compression will be needed to be activated in order to launch the primer. The purpose of a D.C.S.C.S is to launch a robot upwards rather than forwards 

Servo motors

In the current design four servos support the D.C.S.C.S. Two servos placed on the extreme right and left control the movement of the two servos based in the center. The two servos based in the center control the compression of the two springs which in dual channel are compressed by the loop attached to the servo horns. The spring is then compressed by a thin slice of plastic which is retracted by the two servos on the extreme right and left.

Spring 

Two springs are compressed in dual channel by two servos which are then released upon the outside servos moving the central servos away from the spring forcing a spring decompression.

Based off of various real life counterparts the pulley system retracts and detracts both the springs and the servos to create decompression
