Automatic Pet Feeder Gear Motor

An automatic pet feeder can make life a little easier for busy pet owners, which makes caring for pets much easier and eliminates the concern for overfeeding or a pet sitter forgetting to feed the pets. Unlike the traditional pet feeders, automatic pet feeder dispenses a specific amount of food at a programmed time into a bowl so that owners know exactly how often their pets are being offered food and can also control the amount they are getting by using the products.

The Drive System of Automatic Pet Feeder 

The feeder is driven by a set of motor and planetary gearbox. Usually, the gearbox can be matched with different motors to achieve different functions according to customer needs. Some advanced pet feeders can automative active dispense the appropriate amount of food once the pet approaches the feeder. In order to achieve this objective, servos with gearbox and sensor must be used. Because servos can be aware of the position. In addition, the drive system combined with a stepper motor and gearbox can control the movement of the screw inside the machine with the ability to rotate continuously in a single direction, which is suitable for applications that require fine control. The drive system consists of a DC motor and gearbox has the advantage that the speed of rotation of the motor can easily be regulated. Regulation of the speed of rotation will control the amount of feed coming from the feeders, which is suitable for the situation that your pet needs to control weight.

The Choice of DC Gear Motor

For a pet feeder, the choice of motors depends on several factors such as voltage, current, and torque. Motors that are too powerful can result in more breakage of feed and are not recommended. Besides, The motor output should be matched to the need for forces to run the distribution unit. Therefore, the micro DC gear motor is ideal for a household pet feeder with low noise. Also, the speed of rotation, the degree of filling, and the angle of the screw are important factors to affect customers purchasing behaviors. The drive system of DC motor with planetary gearbox enables precision control.
