Mode 1: Standard
Sheep is clamped and weighed etc. When the clamp is released the entry gate is not opened to let the next animal in until the ‘green’ eyes are clear.
Mode 2: Fast
Sheep is clamped and weighed etc. When clamp is released the entry gate is immediately opened to let the next animal in. This is ideal when very fast weighing is required and where the sheep race flow is very good. This mode allows the waiting animal to immediately follow the animal that is exiting the clamp, greatly enhancing flow and throughput.
Mode 3: Continuous Flow
This mode effectively disables the entry gate completely. This is ideal where only occasional animals are being dagged or drafted. The operator selects mode 3 and turns the ‘Eyes OFF’. The sheep can then run through the handler and the clamp is only activated when the remote button is pushed.
