Made in USA for 23+ years! Many modes of operation, indoor or outdoor applications and ease of maintenance and repairs.
MOST ECONOMICAL DEAL if you can mount it yourself to a suitable mount! Combo Deal includes: CSF-3 Cat/Small Animal Super Feeder, two tough polycarbonate clear extensions for a total feeder capacity of just above a quart (4 and 3/4 cups and expendable later if needed, mounting bracket and all hardware, power adapter with 6 foot cord, ACAT-23 indoor type analog timer (style may vary) for up to 48 possible daily feed cycles , and mounting instructions. It can be easily mounted to a cat play stand, any 4x4, 2x4 in your garage, shed or covered patio, or even hung (visit http://www.super-feed.com for lots of mounting information). NOTE: If placed outdoors under a porch where wild animals can get to it, make sure you strap the upper end of the clear extensions at the lid so the extensions cannot be ripped off. Extra metal straps are available, or you can make your own. You must at least protect the chute opening area, or you may enclose the whole feeder in a wood box (recommended). Its supplied indoor-type power supply and timer must also be kept out of the weather if used outdoors.
Voltage required: Power supply (supplied) 110-240VAC 50-60Hz 12VDC output, all timers 120V 60Hz- Wi-Fi Socket 110V-240VAC 50-60Hz. USA style plugs only-not battery operated. If a 120V power source is not available, you may even use any of our 6-24V timers listed here to use your own low voltage power source (some wiring required).
The larger CSF-3XL is also available which comes with an additional 1.5 gallon (24 cups) container which stacks on top of the feeder and can also be purchased separately for this feeder.
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 AND DOES NOT NECESSARILY MEAN THAT YOU ARE USING "RECOMMENDED" KIBBLE TYPE AS LISTED ABOVE IF YOU MUST HAVE THE BEST PORTION ACCURACY.

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.
OVERALL SIZE: CSF-3 Feeder overall size (space needed): 7 x 3 x 12 inches tall
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.
