MK-2 Non-Solar Control Unit
Spin-Cast Wildlife Feeders
The MK-1 Control Unit features a very accurate clock with a sleep feature that conserves battery power. A press of any button will wake the unit up! Six feeding times are available and the motor run time is programmable for each feeding. All settings operate forward and backwards. A progressive counter advances each time the unit feeds and a "smiley" face lets you know the solar panel is charging the battery. The press-to-test runs a complete system check and operates in conjunction with a motor delay safety feature adjustable from 0 to 99 seconds. There is a built-in lithium back up battery to hold settings when the feeder battery is disconnected. A five minute field repair is as simple as unplugging the electronic assembly and plugging in a new one. No soldering! All plastic used in Control Units is 100% Recycled Polycarbonate with UV inhibitors added (the same tough, flexible material that is used in safety glass).
The MK-1 Control Unit is supplied with a 6 volt rechargeable battery, 6 volt solar panel with stainless steel cooncable, small cone, cutting template, and mounting hardware.
Made in Texas from many US-sourced components.
So far so good
I’ve been using Spincast feeders for over 20 years and personally feel the MK-1 is the best on the market. I know I am running 11 currently and they are the simplest and most reliable units to operate.
Very reliable, easy to program
