Microcontroller operated fish feeder system for intensive fish farms

The most modern fish feeding system, developed by a Hungarian company, consisting of a network of individually operated feeding machines. The feeding machines are hanging on stainless chains, fastened to expellable brackets over the fish tanks.

The electronic scale is attached to the hanging point, followed by the fish food bunker, and the feeding mechanics which is mounted to the food bunker lower funnel-shaped end. The dosing is controlled by a microcontroller with an individual IP address assigned to each feeder. Each microcontroller has its own 12 Volts local battery in order to protect against network overload caused by random simultaneous feedings.

Especially given the fact that maximum 93 feeding units can be integrated into a system.

Operation principle: The controlled feeder head is situated under the feeding-bunker which is mounted on an aerial electronic balance. The dosage accuracy is 1 gram. The feeder head is controlled by microcontrollers, which are operated by a battery network. The central data collection is done by a PC, to which a maximum of 93 feeders can be connected.
