This Terceira XL automatic solar hen house hatch closes the door of your hen house after dark. Opens it at sunrise.
Only a few screws to put!
Prerequisites to install the Terceira XL automatic door:
Your automatic door must be in the sun from time to time. (Not facing due North, nor just behind a tree or a house that hides the sun all day).
If your anticrocpoule is placed on soft ground (earth), you may need to put a stopper at the bottom of the door, for example a small wooden slat (not supplied).
Working principle of automatic large size chicken coop solar hatch:
In the morning, when the light is sufficient, a gear motor winds the braid so that the door goes up and releases the hens.
In the evening, after dark, the gear motor automatically releases the braid until the chicken coop door is closed.
A LIPO battery stores the energy of the sun for an autonomy of 2 months without sun.
Contents of the package:
The factory-programmed closing anticrocpoule module (LIPO battery included).
Two aluminum sliders as well as the 6 fixing screws.
The door 5 mm thick.
The screws required for assembly.
A user manual for your chicken coop solar door.
Dimension of the cutout to be made in the chicken coop: approximately 27 cm wide and 40 cm high
Dimension of the gatekeeper, box of 13x9x5 cm (length x height coil included x depth).
Technological choices for your large automatic solar chicken door for chicken coops:
Aluminum profile door guides.
Body of the door panel: rigid and insulating panel 5mm thick in plastic allowing perfect resistance to UV and humidity.
Robust and waterproof recyclable ABS case for a longer lifespan (IP 54) .
Solar cell and high capacity battery for total autonomy.
Light detection to adapt the closing time to the actual sunset time because the sun never sets at the same time and the hens go to bed with the sun.
Geared motor with all of its sprockets in hardened steel for a very long life.
Braided cord with a resistance of 68kg.
A tactile key is used to start a test cycle (closing and opening).
The advantage of a tactile key is the perfect seal, unlike a switch.
The aluminum braid coil is on the outside of the case to prevent moisture from entering.
New features of the large size automatic solar chicken door for chicken coop:
Possibility of delaying opening in the morning until 3 hours after sunrise. Useful if, for example, you have a noisy rooster and you don’t want to release too soon.
Possibility to adjust the closing time in the evening according to the sunset time 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-closr to a guillotine-type door while keeping the same automatic closing module.
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. In addition, it requires less brightness to start charging than previous versions.
