switches:

Mission Pinball Framework’s (MPF) vari target device represents a switch in a pinball machine. It is a metal arm that pivots under the playfield and awards a scoring value associated with it that changes depending on how hard the ball hits it. Typically the harder the ball hit the more points awarded.

This is a vari-target in a Gottlieb Playball (1971):

Technically, a vari-target has one switch per position and a reset coil to reset the target:

It can reset the target at any position. Either directly after a hit or once it has moved till the end (or never). This is how a vari-target looks fully engaged:

If you got an example config for a vari target please contribute it.
