Made in USA for 23+ years! Many modes of operation, indoor or outdoor applications and ease of maintenance and repairs.
This XL "basic" package Super Feeder holds up to 1.8 gallon capacity and comes with an outdoor approved 120V power adapter with a voltage output of 12VAc ready to use with your own outdoor timer. The power adapter has a 6' cord w/plug and comes with two crimp blade connectors and can be mounted to a wall or piece of lumber. All you will need is an outdoor 120V programmable timer with a regular 3 or two-prong outlet and some 2-conductor wire to operate it (small guage wire will work just fine). Although the 1.5 gallon hopper will slip right on the feeder, one clear extension is recommended to let you know when the food is getting low. Combos complete with timer and 50' of wire are available. Voltage required: Power supply (supplied) 120V-60Hz 12VAC or DC output, all timers 120V 60Hz--Wi-Fi Socket 110V-240VAC 50-60Hz. USA style plugs only-not battery opperated but could be.

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. If using a digital timer, compatibility may be an issue with the included outdoor power supply unless using the ACDT-35 we have tested and recommend. Any analog timer can be used.
OVERALL SIZE: Feeder overall size mounted (space needed): 12 x 3 x 22 inches tall
How to use feeder with a home automation system: You can plug the supplied power adapter into a 120V 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: If enclosed out of weather, 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.
