This is one of the worlds most powerful electronic bird deterrent systems. In order to provide control over a broader range of bird species than single sound units, the Bird - X 20 has three separate and distinct multi-frequency variable harassment sounds.
With a total of 20 individual speakers hooked up consecutively one after the other, the Bird - X 20 forms a continuous " sonic fence " up to 550 meters long, ideal for long boundaries bordering areas such as forests, scrub etc.
The Bird X-20 Sonic Fence which can be either 12v with solar panel or 240v is the result of:-
Sound can't travel efficiently through dense vegetation. Therefore, speakers must be placed about 3 feet (1m) above the top of the foliage.
is very important.
Bird Gard will provide a mud map with the correct speaker positions marked.
The speakers must be placed in accordance with the map.
Speaker #1 has
"spade" connections which
attached to the speaker outlet on the Sound Control Generator.The other
19 speakers have a single plug-in stereo jack which plugs into the bottom
of the preceding speaker.
by necessity are light gauge. The cables should be strung DIRECT from
speaker to speaker in mid air. The cable from speaker to speaker requires
no support but it is imperative that it is anchored to the post/pole
supporting the speaker before it is stretched out to the next speaker.
Failure to do so will place undue strain on the plugs and sockets and
may damage them.
Speaker cables must never be run speaker cables along the ground as they will be damaged sooner or later and rodents may chew them.
The solar will trickle charge battery and will lessen the number of times that it will require recharging. Solar panels aren't infallible. Overcast conditions drastically reduce their output and the battery's power storage will obviously plummet at such times. During early morning and late afternoon, the machine is operating and drawing power while the solar panel is generating very little power. It will, therefore, be nescessary to recharge the battery from time to time.
All modes of operation are clearly marked on the face of the sound generator unit, i.e. how to set for day, night, or 24 hour operation, short, medium or long time-off periods and random or non-random sound sequences.
The X-20 is pre-set on DAY, SHORT, RANDOM - all that is required is that the speakers and power are connected and the unit turned ON.
Once the X-20 is up and running, it can provide 24 hour protection for your crop. A light sensor operates the unit during daylight or night time or bot
A spare battery
is recommended because a large flock of birds in a crop for a day while
a flat battery is being recharging, will cost a lot more than a back-up
An occasional spray of silicon or white lithium grease over the connection points and switches will ensure years of trouble free use.
In the off-season the system should be stored in an insect proof container (e.g. a taped up box) to ensure that ants or wasps don't build nests inside the control box or speakers as this may render the system inoperable.
