OUR OUTDOOR SUPER FEEDER® SYSTEM IS  MUCH QUIETER THAN A VIBRATING APPARATUS THAT PULVERIZES AND COMPACTS FISH FOOD!

IT IS BUILT WITH EXTREMELY DURABLE, THICK AND TUFF HIGH-IMPACT ACRYLIC, ABS, AND POLYCARBONATE MATERIALS (LEXAN®)

You may control your Super Feeder from anywhere using your Smart Phone with our Wi-Fi Socket.

 

(Patent 5,873,326) "Outdoor/Indoor" Feeder
The KSF-2 is composed of very thick high-impact acrylic and polycarbonate plastic,  tough polypropylene interior parts and stainless steel hardware . And all parts are available and easily replaced, should you ever need them.  Heavy-duty high-impact plastic  helps prevent condensation and is practically animal-proof.   This feeder is  extremely weather resistant and can be used for any type of outdoor or indoor feeding.  The only thing you will need to operate, power and trigger your feeder is some wire and any inexpensive remote plug-in timer.  It can also be operated without its power adapter by hooking it up directly to a timer/transformer for a 12 Volt landscape lighting system or a sprinkler system timer which normally supplies 24vac. Operate it like a "zone" valve.  A home automation X-10™ type system is perfect match and A 12 Volt battery can also be used with our optional external 12vdc digital timer.  If you do not already have one of these timers or timer/transformers, we stock a vast selection of digital or analog models.

The external 120vac remote timer (not included with a "basic" package, but available with combo deals) and the feeder's supplied low-voltage power adapter are normally used to "trigger" and power the feeder's own   internal and adjustable feed timer (no batteries required). YOU pre-adjust the feeder's own internal feed timer for the length of time you want the feeder to run at each cycle. The feeder is capable of feeding as many times as the external remote timer is able to provide "on-off" cycles (1 to 72 times a day, or more, depending on the timer used).  A 12 Volt battery system/timer is also available for those of you who must have it, but we really do not recommend battery systems.  Our Super Feeders can accurately feed from just a few pellets to many cups per day.

Several feeders can be "triggered" by one timer

All models will readily fit to a vertical 2x4 (preferred method), a pipe, hung, or on top of a platform. A real neat mobile method is with a 4x4, 2x4, or a PVC pipe held in place with sand or concrete at the inside edge of a 5 gal. plastic bucket, to which you can attach your Super Feeder.  You can move the bucket around in your pond wherever you want it to be.    You can even dress up your installation with flowers.  Real handy!   It can be hung using the supplied bracket.  Click on the typical mount link below for a picture of that example.

 Each feeder has its own reset switch and electronic adjustment to initially calibrate the feeding cycles.  A status green (LED) light lets you know when the feeder is powered. The time it runs determines the amount of food that comes out for a given time, and a mechanical adjustment calibrates the volume of food dispensed for that given time.  It dispenses all the food required from a split second to approximately 70 seconds, as adjusted by you, totally independent of the length of time the remote timer stays on.

See pictures of other applications for  the KSF-2 outdoor feeder, such as bird feeding.

Remember...Unless you purchase a combo deal, you will need some type of remote timer and 2 conductor wire to operate your Super Feeder®.  Most people already have a timer of some sort and 2 conductor wire.  In order to keep your cost down, we offer these items only as optional accessories by themselves or with a combo deal. See [price list]  If you cannot keep the remote timer and power adapter sheltered, you must find a way to do so, or you should use an outdoors remote timer system like the |ACDT-35|.

INTERNATIONAL ORDER?  DO NOT ORDER ONLINE UNLESS YOU REVIEW OUR POLICY AT:

http://www.super-feed.com/international_order_policy.htm

 A [12 Volt DC digital timer] is available to operate the Super Feeder® for people who do not have a 120 Volt source near their pond.  The feeder is already designed to operate from a 9-24 Volt DC source as well as AC.  The only accessories you will need, in addition to the feeder, are:  Wire, A 12 volt battery and our DC timer.  A solar charger is really not required because the system uses such an extremely small amount of power (since it is not always powered) that you may just choose to occasionally charge the battery yourself. The 7 day digital timer (DT-01) must be mounted inside a weatherproof compartment or can be ordered with an outdoor metal box (DT-03) ready to hook-up.  Other dc timers are also available with many more daily cycles.

SAFETY REMINDER
All Super Feeders have been thoroughly tested and found to be extremely dependable in providing your pets with timely meals; however, as with any machine, your feeder should be monitored at regular intervals for proper operation. If you anticipate being away for an extended period of time where a lack of food could cause harm or even death to your pets, you should make arrangements with someone to inspect your feeder at regular intervals.
