This automatic closing module for the solar henhouse La Jurassienne automatically closes the door of your henhouse at night and opens it in the morning.
Adaptable on traditional doors such as hinged doors as well as on guillotine type doors weighing less than 750grs.
Equipped with a solar cell to recharge the included LIPO battery.
Principle of operation:
In the morning, when the brightness is sufficient, a gear motor releases the braid so that the door opens.
In the evening, the gearmotor lowers the braid until the door is closed and held on its stop.
It is possible to adjust the opening and closing hours.
Dimensions of the module La Jurassienne :
The chicken coop automatic closing module is 13cm wide, 9cm high (with the coil) and 5cm thick.
This automatic chicken coop closing module was designed and manufactured by us in France in the Jura.
Robust and waterproof recyclable ABS case (IP 54).
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 parts and labor warranty is 2 years. In addition, spare parts availability is 10 years.
As an option at the top of the page, an extended warranty is possible.
The solar cell must be in the sun from time to time, which is why it requires at least 30 hours of direct sunlight every two months to recharge its battery. Consequently, this corresponds to an average of 30 minutes of sunshine per day.
Autonomy in bad weather is about 45 days.
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. In addition, it requires less brightness to start charging than previous versions.
