The most popular combination is the Door, a photo sensor, and the solar panel with battery options.
The door frame is constructed of 1.5” solid angle aluminum with a 9 3/8” wide by 10 1/2” opening. The moving joints are nickel-plated brass on aluminum with a bottom pivot. Overall size 12 1/8″ wide by 13 1/4″ tall plus 4 1/2″ for the control box on top.
When you are standing outside the coop looking at the door opening outward toward you, a “Left” door means you see the hinge on your left.
With the Photo sensor option you can still use program mode. If ordered with a door, it comes already attached to the door. It can be added later.
Three power combinations are available. The 3w Solar Panel with Battery or the Trickle Charger with Battery or just the Plug-in Adapter.
The 3 watt solar panel comes with a 12 volt 5 amp-hour rechargeable lead acid battery. The Solar Panel needs an average of 2 hours of direct sunlight per day to keep the battery charged (or 60 hours per month). The battery will run the small electric chicken door for about 4 weeks in really bad (sunless) weather.
The Trickle charger comes with the same 12v battery. It plugs into house current, your standard outlet. It is a smart charger, keeps the battery charged and should always stay plugged in. (new paragraph) Note: For wire lengths, the door has 8 feet of wire to connect to the battery. Starting at the battery, the standard solar panel wire is 10 feet. We can extend that to 25, 50, or 100 feet instead of 10. The Trickle Charger has 6 feet of wire to the outlet starting at the battery.
Note that the Plug-in Adapter does require the photo sensor. The reason is that if you get a power outage, when power returns the electric chicken door will simply return to photo sensor mode. Without it, the door will close and stay closed which can endanger your birds.
