~ The Batt-Latch is a portable timer which waits until a preset time and date, then mechanically releases an attached spring/bungy/tape gate using its internal gearbox. This unit has a chip and can be pre programmed or instructed via mobile phone to open. ~ It can be incorporated into normal farming practice by swinging standard or any other types of gates open and temporarily replacing them with the Batt-Latch release unit, and a spring or tape gate. ~ The Batt-Latch is a valuable labour-saving tool for herd management, and will also help reduce pasture pugging, stock lameness and fuel costs . ~ The latest advances in technology have been harnessed to develop new circuitry that uses less power to deliver an improved performance . The integrated solar panel on the Batt-Latch maintains battery charge without intervention, eliminating downtime for charging . ~ The already rugged and dependable polycarbonate body has been made even more durable with refinements in design, and the use of a superior waterproofing gasket. ~ The durable webbing belt supplied easily attaches the Batt-Latch to posts and battens. ~ The keypad is simple to use and gives you total control and flexibility to set up and store four release events at a time, for up to two weeks in advance. The full message LCD display screen lets you know exactly what youve programmed in. ~ With the increasing trend towards feed pads or supplements on most farms, stock have an extra incentive to leave the paddock. No other product will release the herd to a feedpad near the dairy at 3a.m, for example, saving hours of effort every week.
Mel Eden, Dairy Exporter, August 2014. Use a device to open the paddock gate at 5am and spend the extra half hour in bed while the cows wander up to be milked. Remote control via mobile phone creates an even greater benefit
