Prodotto: Juwel automatic feeder
The Juwel automatic feeder is suitable for all aquariums. It is supplied with a template holder that fits within the Juwel flap sets. All aquariums are now supplied with a press out section in the flap to take the feeder. If yours is the older style and does not have the press out section then please use the feeder template to cut a suitable hole or alternatively purchase a new flap set with the pre-cut hole from your Juwel supplier.
The template holder has a feeder cover which can be closed whilst the feeder is not in use and opened when required.
To install the feeder please follow these instructions.
1. If your flap set has a removable section simply press this out. On older style flaps without this please select the position of the feeder and cut this section out using a suitable implement.
2. Place the template holder supplied over the hole.
3. Remove the feeder flap from the template holder.
4. Position the Juwel automatic feeder with the food dispenser over the feeding hole.
Note: Flap sets for Juwel automatic feeder.
If the flap set on your Juwel aquarium does not have the feeder template marked on it we recommend that you contact your supplying retailer.
An original Juwel flap set with the appropriate feeder template can be purchased as a spare part.
The JUWEL automatic feeder enables you to program up to two feeds per day.
When setting up the feeder please consider the timing carefully, the first feed will happen when you turn the feeder on and then subsequently every 24 hours at that set time. If you select a second feed this will happen automatically 6 hours after the first and again will repeat this cycle every 24 hours. Please consider this timing to avoid feeding the fish when the lights are out.
Start by placing the AA batteries that are included with your Juwel Automatic feeder into battery compartment E.
Push the "ON/OFF" button. A red LED will illuminate to confirm this operation.
The first feed is activated by turning on the feeder and is confirmed by a Green LED which will initially flash and then stay on. At this point an actual feeding will take place and the time is set for subsequent feeds at 24 hour intervals until turned off.
If you require a second feeding, push the "SET" button.
A yellow LED starts flashing and subsequently illuminates. This indicates that you have set the JUWEL automatic feeder to two feedings. A first feeding will now take place at the set time and a second feeding will take place 6 hours after the first feeding on all following days.
(Example: Activation at 9 a.m., feedings at 9 a.m. and 3 p.m.)
If you wish to switch back to one feeding, press the "SET" button one more time or switch off the automatic feeder prior to switching it back on.
