This Vertical Sliding Door Opener for Chicken Coop Pop-hole Doors has been brought bang up to date for 2019 with new features and an improved slimline layout inside.

Introducing the NEW Automatic Door Opener by AXT (makers of the tried & trusted VSB units) - - The VSD.

Can be mounted inside or outside the henhouse. For internal use add the EXTERNAL LIGHT SENSOR

The VSD, like the VSB, is a battery powered Electronic Chicken Coop Door Opener and the redesign now includes more options e.g. LED indicators; replaceable on-board light sensor; the manual override function; slimline casing; additional pins to add mains power, timers and external sensors/indicators. Batteries are included.

The VSD can be mounted on the outside of your chicken house above the sliding pop-hole door (or can be offset with pulleys where space is an issue). We suggest the sliding door is the aluminium option (below) to ensure it remains free-moving throughout the year but, you can add the VSD to a wooden vertical door as long as it moves up and down freely. The cord is very strong with a 40lb breaking strain.

Once set and batteries inserted the VSD will open the door at dawn and close it at dusk by means of a strong cord attached to the pop-hole door. An LED indicator in the lower right will show green for closed and OK, and it will show red if there is an error or battery change needed. A Battery Powered Timer can also be added to give control of opening and/or closing using timed settings.

To manually override the door closing/opening, a red magnet is supplied to touch at the base of the VSB casing and activate the motor to raise or lower the door. FSF Note: the red magnet is quite small so we advise tying a coloured cord/ribbon to it in case you drop it on the ground (makes it easier to find and can also be hung near the VSD perhaps), otherwise it may get lost.

For internal mounting you would place the VSD inside the coop above the pop-hole and add the remote light sensor which connects to two pins on the circuit board. This sensor remotely takes the light levels outside the henhouse to activate the unit inside. You can also add a Remote Manual Control Cable in the same way, so that you do not have to get inside the house to open/close the door if required. Another option is to add an external LED Status Indicator Cable so this can be seen from a distance too.

Dimensions: 125mm x 125mm x 50mm. Batteries are included with the VSD as well as comprehensive instructions for installation making this a very simple to do. No electronic or specialist knowledge needed at all. We offer telephone back up for trouble shooting if required though.

External Remote Light Sensor Cable
External Digital or Analogue Timers
