Title (EN) METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR AUTOMATED FEEDER OPERATION
(FR) PROCEDE ET APPAREIL DESTINES A UN DISPOSITIF D'ALIMENTATION AUTOMATISE
Abstract:
(EN) A system and method are provided which allows for brood gates in feeders to be completely open upon the introduction of a flock of poultry thereto in order to present a high feed level within a pan member, and then to be automatically controlled to incrementally change the size and position of the brood gate to lower the feed level within a pan member over time as the birds grow. The system includes an electronic controller which is preprogrammed to set different positions at which the brood gate should be at different times. Software within the electronic controller implements changes of the position of the brood gate at the appropriate times by sending signals to an actuator which is connected to the feeders. Movement of the actuator causes the changing of size and position of the brood gates.
(FR) L'invention concerne un système et un procédé qui permettent d'ouvrir complètement les portes de couvain dans des distributeurs d'aliments lors de l'introduction d'un flocon de volaille afin de présenter à un niveau d'alimentation élevé dans un aliment de bac, puis d'être automatiquement surveillé afin de modifier incrémentiel la taille et la position de la porte de couvain afin d'abaisser le niveau d'alimentation dans un élément de cuve dans le temps à mesure que les oiseaux grandissent. Le système comprend un dispositif de surveillance électronique qui est préprogrammé de façon à régler des positions différentes auxquelles la porte de couvain devrait se trouver à différents moments. Un logiciel à l'intérieur du dispositif de surveillance électronique met en oeuvre des changements de position de la porte de couvain à des moments appropriés par envoi de signaux vers un actionneur qui est relié aux distributeurs d'aliments. Le mouvement de l'actionneur entraîne les changements de taille et de position des portes de couvain.
