CHUXAWAY SCX with QUALITY ALUMINIUM DOOR:
– Easy installation
– Only 3 AA batteries required (installed within the timer control unit)
– No calibration required
– 7 Day programmable timer with Manual Override
– Aluminium Door with runners
– Long battery life (e.g. over a year dependent on quality of batteries, climate and number of open/close operations). The unit requires 3 x AA alkaline batteries.
All sensor functionality is contained within the Chuxaway SCX motor unit. The unit requires no calibration. Installation is simple and electrical connections are limited to connecting two wires to connect the Motor Unit to the Timer Control Unit (using screw terminals).The Chuxaway SCX uses an Integral Timer so that you are in control of when the door opens and closes. In our opinion this control is more flexible than light sensing models – essential for those weekend lie-ins and perhaps as a courtesy to neighbours when dawn can be very early in the Summer! The timer enables up to 6 programmed door open and door close sequences using a 7 day timer, although it is anticipated that most people will choose a single programme to open and close at a set time in the morning and evening. These times are fully configurable by the user to within 1 minute. It is possible to have the door open/close at different times on different days of the week if you wish. It is very easy to change the times as the daylight hours change through the season – a process that takes just a few seconds. The unit features a Manual Override so that you an open and close the door on the control unit by pushing a button. The Chuxaway SCX uses a motorised pulley lift and gravity close approach and can be used with vertically opening and closing doors, including Ark styles. The kit requires a simple screwdriver DIY installation and includes full step-by-step instructions (in English) plus all fixings. The Chuxaway SCX motor unit needs to be mounted such that the rising door makes contact with the sensor integrated on the underside of the motor unit when fully open. (9cm space required above door to accommodate the motor unit). The motor is contained within a weatherproof housing (14cm wide and 7cm high), and can be mounted remote from the control unit. The control unit should be mounted under-cover, (i.e. protected from the rain). If your chicken run does not have a roof you could mount the control unit inside the chicken house itself. Alternatively, if you are unable to mount under shelter, we have sourced a waterproof enclosure with hinged transparent lid (see spares).This kit includes a full Door Conversion Kit complete with timber runners, lower stop, screws, and light aluminium door. The Aluminium Door measures approximately 300mm high by 220mm wide. The width including side runners is approximately 300mm. This width has been specified as it typically complements most chicken coops. (The side runners incorporate a slot within which the door slides).
