Introduction of automatic feeders

In recent years, with the high pressure of work, pets have become people’s emotional need, and people are increasingly enjoying the happiness of keeping pets. In this context, the multi-functional automatic feeder comes into being. It can satisfy pet owners to feed their pets remotely to avoid starving pets when they are away from home.


Structure and working principle of automatic feeder

An automatic electronic feeder, based on mechanical, uses electronic device control (time relay, PLC, etc.) at the food outlet to open and close the food outlet at a regular time, or push the food into the food box, or push the food box to the outlet.

The electrically or battery-operated feeders can be set for multiple timed, quantitative feedings. The latest generation of automatic feeders has introduced a smart home module to achieve remote timing and quantitative feeding by APP.


Application principle of microswitch in an automatic feeder

The motor at the bottom of the automatic feeder drives the rotating funnel to perform the feeding function. The limit position beside the motor is generally equipped with a micro switch corresponding to our company’s G6 series. When the motor rotates to the limit position, the micro switch is triggered, and the circuit is cut off so that the rotating funnel stops rotating and the limit is achieved.

According to the different design schemes, some automatic feeders use the micro switch corresponding to our company’s G10 series.

Unionwell G6 and G10 series micro switch high reliability, with global safety certification, and quality comparable to international first-line brands. The price has a competitive advantage, widely favored by customers in various industries.
