Types Of Fish Feeding Devices

fishThere are many different types of fish feeders. We will go over some of the most popular ones.

Electromechanical devices: These devices are made up of timed relays and adjustable time clocks. They allow to obtain a fixed program all day long, at a relatively high cost. They are optimal for a very small number of rearing tanks.

Electronic Microprocessor Devices: These microprocessor controllers are the result of modern industrial systems and provide high precision and excellent flexibility in the distribution of food. They allow, in particular, to plan the modes of distribution of food. They can be used from 8 channels at a lower price than electromechanical systems.

Among the many possibilities of these devices are:

Feeding aquaculture feed distribution in aquaculture farming aquaculture farming as well as in public aquariums

On-demand feeding systems : The simplest on-demand feeding systems are based on the principle of a balance, the lower part of which is immersed in water, is hit by the fish in search of food, who then receives a small amount of flakes. This type of distributor can be inexpensively tinkered by an operator for the low feed rations used in the younger stage of the fish, but it has the disadvantage of not correctly dosing the quantity of granules distributed, and it easily becomes abused by the fish , Which, as a result, tend to waste the food.

Electromechanical systems derived from this pendulum principle and used for magnification have the same disadvantage. In order to avoid these disadvantages, An electronic system has been developed using the programming model described above, coupled to an electronic tactile rod which emits a signal as soon as it is struck by a fish. This tactile stem can be used for fish weighing around a gram.

Traditional pet systems: These are your typical pet feeders that you find online or at the pet store. They are different than the other types listed and can be seen in more detail here bestautomaticfishfeeders.com/different-types-food-dispensers/.  These are not to be used in commercial settings ever.
