Solar cell and high capacity battery to allow total autonomy. Brightness detection for automatic adjustment of the opening and closing time according to the actual sunrise and sunset time. Geared motor with all of its sprockets in hardened steel for a very long life. Braid with a resistance of 68kg. A touch button allows you to start a test cycle (closing and opening) and to adjust the length of the braid (depending on the size of your door). The advantage of a tactile key is to allow a perfect seal, unlike a switch. The braid coil is outside the case so as not to let in any humidity. Supplied with a 12-page color user manual, stainless steel screws to fix the case and spare braid. Optional on our site: piton screws to deport the module in case of lack of space.

– The printed circuit:

The circuit board of the automatic closing module for chicken coop The solar cell needs to be in the sun from time to time: it needs at least 30 hours of direct sunlight every two months to recharge its battery. This corresponds to an average of 30 minutes of sunshine per day. (not facing due North, nor just behind a tree or a house that hides the sun all day). Autonomy in bad weather is about 45 days.

New circuit board, new features:

Possibility of delaying opening in the morning until 3 hours after sunrise. Useful if, for example, you have a noisy rooster that you don’t want to release too soon. We can adjust the closing time in the evening according to the sunset time. Useful if your solar cell is due East or due West. You can change the type of operation: go from a door with hinges on the side and a mini door-closer to a guillotine type door. You can therefore keep the same automatic closing module while changing doors or chicken coops. Use of a LIPO battery (as in Smartphones) much more reliable and durable than the rechargeable batteries used so far. Continuous measurement of the motor torque to detect obstacles and if the door is at the end of its travel. An ON/OFF button allows you to deactivate the module, for example when you have chicks that are too small to go out. The use of more modern components has made it possible to further reduce the consumption of the module. What’s more, it requires less light to start recharging than previous versions.
