Title
(EN) PORTABLE PROGRAMMABLE LIQUID FEED DISPENSING DEVICE
(FR) DISPOSITIF DE DISTRIBUTION PORTABLE ET PROGRAMMABLE POUR NOURRITURE LIQUIDE
Abstract
(EN)
An apparatus (100) for dispensing a liquid feed supplement to animals in measured quantities according to an established schedule within which both quantity dispensed and times when dispensed are user definable. Liquid feed is allowed to flow from a bulk storage vessel (101) by lowering a transfer pipe (105) a predetermined distance into the storage vessel (101), thereby allowing the liquid feed to gravity flow from the storage vessel (101) to a feeding vessel (102). The control of dispensing time and the quantity of liquid feed dispensed are accomplished through the use of a microcomputer (125) which can be programmed to enable the dispensing of liquid feed for two time periods in a 24-hour cycle.
(FR)
Un appareil (100) permet de distribuer un complément alimentaire liquide à des animaux, en quantités mesurées et selon un horaire établi, de façon que l'utilisateur puisse définir tant ces quantités que les heures de distribution. On fait couler ce complément liquide depuis une cuve de stockage (101) en y abaissant une conduite de transfert (105) sur une distance prédéterminée, ce qui permet à ce complément de s'écouler par gravité vers une cuve d'alimentation (102). Un micro-ordinateur (125) permet de commander l'heure et la quantité de distribution du complément liquide, de façon qu'on puisse programmer cette distribution sur deux périodes par cycle de 24 heures.
