Your La Terceira automatic solar chicken house door automatically closes your chicken house after dark and opens it at sunrise.
Assembled in the Jura, your automatic door kit has been designed to maximize its resistance to nighttime intrusions.
Prerequisites for your automatic solar chicken coop door:
The solar cell of your automatic chicken coop door must be in the sun from time to time, 30 minutes of sunshine per day in good weather is sufficient. However, avoid a full North orientation, and do not place it behind an obstacle that would hide the sun all day.
If your automatic chicken coop door 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 the automatic door for solar henhouse La Terceira :
Your chicken coop door works completely autonomously thanks to solar energy.
The solar cell is used to recharge the battery as well as to measure the luminosity in order to detect if it is daytime.
It is possible to shift the opening and closing time of the door, by default, it is 15 minutes after sunset and 15 minutes after sunrise.
A LIPO battery (same technology as in a smartphone) stores energy and restores it for 2 months of autonomy without sunlight.
Aluminum profile door guides.
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) .
Light detection to adapt the closing and opening time to sunrise and sunset.
Geared motor with hardened steel pinions for a very long life.
Braided cord with a resistance of 68kg.
Possibility to delay the opening as well as the closing.
A touch key is used to make adjustments and to start a test cycle.
The advantage of a tactile key is the perfect seal, unlike a switch.
An ON/OFF button allows you to deactivate the module, for example when you have chicks that are too small to go out.
The aluminum braid coil is outside the case so as not to allow moisture to enter.
Solar cell and high capacity LIPO battery (like in a Smartphone) for total autonomy.
A cable gland to guarantee the tightness and screws to put it in place.
