Calibration failedadminThis alarm indicates that the calibration has failed. Check that the battery and the motor are connected correctly and that nothing is blocking the motor. Try turning the motor shaft manually and make sure that it rotates relatively freely and is not stuck (be sure to unplug the battery first so the engine does not start unexpectedly and cause injury). If the problem persists, contact Nordic Gamekeepers support.

FeedCon has restartedadminIf you get this alarm the FeedCon system has restarted. If this was an unexpected event it may indicate that the system has power problems, such as due to low battery, or the battery is not connected properly. It is more likely that the system will restart in connection with a failure of the motor to start when the battery is not delivering enough power for both motor and FeedCon. In this case the feeding fails. Note that the alarm indicates a restart of the system and that it is now up and running again. It is possible that it was only a temporary problem with the power supply if the problem is not recurring. If you suspect that an unauthorized person has been manipulated with your FeedCon it is a good idea to visit your feeder and make sure everything is ok.
