What kind of battery can I use to connect to FeedCon?adminWe recommend you to use a rechargeable 12 Volts battery. The ampere-hour (ah) should be 4.5 or more. In our own complete Feeders we use a marine/leisure battery on 75 ah when we connect them to FeedCon.
Which battery is compatible with our feeders?adminWe recommend a leisure / marine battery of about 75ah.
How weatherproof is FeedCon?adminFeedCon is highly water resistant and weatherproof since the circuit board is totally coated in a special coating that is extremely resistant to moisture and water. FeedCon is very temperature-resistant since the electronics can tolerate both very high and very low temperatures.
What coverage is required on the network to use FeedCon?adminIn FeedCon there is built-in sim card from Telias M2M system. Only minimum coverage required for FeedCon to work. FeedCon is functioning both in Europe (supported by all major telecom operators) and in USA (AT&T coverage).
Is FeedCon theft-proof?adminFeedCon is theft-proof since it can be locked by the owner / user if it disappears. Obviously, the user can unlock FeedCon again if necessary.
How does the communication between FeedCon and the app works?adminEvery six hours FeedCon connects to the server to leave and receive data. This means that changed settings in e.g. feeding schedule occurs at this time. You can see in the app when the next update occurs. On the other hand, if there is an alarm then FeedCon immediately sends an alarm to the app and to your e-mail address.
How much power does FeedCon consume?adminA feedCon consumes about 3-4 milliamperes during normal operation, which is very low power consumption in relation to motor operation, possibly led light and self-discharge of the battery. For example, is a leisure / marine battery on 75Ah enough to run FeedCon in approximately 3 years.
