Made in USA for 23+ years! Many modes of operation, indoor applications, ease of maintenance and repairs.
NEW OFFERING! By customer requests, we are now offering this Super Feeder in a completely factory assembled and ready to use version for your convenience! Fill it with food, adjust the portion size and program the easy to use included analog external timer to turn it on at programmed times. That's it! You may purchase and add a different timer to your order like a digital timer (ACDT-20 or ACDT-19) or even the Wi-Fi Smart Socket (ACWIFI) listed in the upper top right column above (no substitution). The Wi-Fi Socket is great for triggering several feeders at one time in different places for a dominating pet wanting to eat the other's food or training to go to a particular feeder with different food. You may also use any other timer of your own. To increase the feeder's capacity, you can add one or two extra extensions to the two already supplied with the feeder, or for even more capacity you can add the 1.5 gallon hopper to your order to create the CSF-3XL model for up to 28 cups of kibbles. This Super Feeder® combo features a special dishwasher-safe bowl made with a special high-grade kitchenware material known as Kibisan® SAN and especially designed to spread kibbles for better food access to pets. It also features two new high-quality and practically indestructible polycarbonate 2-cup clear extensions. The black powder coat metal mounting bracket and strap attach the feeder to a compact heavy-duty black ABS base and tower. The Super Feeder® could also be used with a home automation system and/or web based system. It is compact and holds 4 and 3/4 cups of food (slightly over a quart by volume. If you have a really aggressive "locksmith" cat when it comes to trying to get to the food, a polycarbonate chute cover (protective device) is also installed. Proudly made in USA, try one, you'll love it as many other pet owners have for many years! Its compact size mounted is 10" x 11" x 15" tall (CSF-3XL 12" x 11 x 21 1/2" tall) and is normally placed backed up to a wall, cabinet or across a corner wall. Most importantly, compared to others, it could also be mounted to a wall or your very own mount using a piece of lumber instead of the supplied short stand against that highly mischievous pet! The stand setup is intended for INDOOR use only. Voltage required: Power supply 110-240VAC 50-60Hz 12VDC output, all timers 120V 60Hz- Wi-Fi Socket 110V-240VAC 50-60Hz. USA style plugs only-not battery operated.
NOTE: Small 1/4" round (spherical) kibbles like offered by Science Diet or other brands are recommended for very best performance. Please be aware that the feeder does not “count’ kibbles, but tests have shown that an overall accuracy of +/- .1 to .2 ounce from one portion to another is possible with recommended kibbles. Most other kibbles will work well up to 5/8" diameter, but with so many shapes/sizes of kibbles on the market, it is impossible to predict exact results as far as exact accuracy is concerned. Although performance is guaranteed with recommended food as described, please be advised that due to variance of kibble sizes and shapes, 100% portion accuracy simply cannot be guaranteed for all feed cycles. That would apply to any feeder feeding oddly shaped kibbles.
NOTE: USING A NAME BRAND LIKE "SCIENCE DIET" IS ONLY A BRAND EXAMPLE. Many brands have similar recommended type kibbles.

How to use the feeder with a regular external timer: Basically any plug-in timer like a lamp timer can be used. Just follow directions included in feeder's manual.
How to use feeder with a home automation system: You can plug the supplied power adapter into a 100-240V module controlled by your system. You then turn the module on for a couple of minutes with your system, which in turn triggers and powers the feeder. The feeder runs only for time in seconds you adjusted the feeder to give you the portion you want and then stops. When you turn the power off for a couple of minutes, the feeder resets itself and is once again ready to be triggered at the next programmed time. If your system has 12 to 24 volts output ac or dc, you can do away with the feeder's own power adapter and hook directly to the feeder. You could also control the feeder's run time entirely with your external system by setting the feeder's feed time controller to its maximum setting of 70 seconds. NOTE: We recommend our Wi-Fi socket listed on this store as ACWIFI Socket for iPhone control (see details). Systems below have also been known to work fine. Iris brand "smart outlet" in-wall has been reported to work with smart phone. Z-Wave Smart Outlet the "Quirkey+GE Outlink Smart Outlet systems will work. Some systems by Leviton may not work properly due to the fact that their systems such as Z-Wave module, Z-Wave receptacle and dimming modules may not completely turn off and thus not work with the Super Feeder.
