SureFlap Ltd has used OnTuneTM
to produce a pet door that works with a cat's standard microchip
implant. SureFlapTM solves the problem of unwanted visitors
into a home, providing controlled access without the need for a
collar or tag that can get lost or snagged.
The performance gains afforded by OnTuneTM
allow SureFlapTM to
achieve excellent range, sufficient to read standard microchip implants
over the normal variation in animal approach.
Importantly, SureFlapTM is battery powered, yielding in
excess of 6-months operation from 4xAA batteries. This is achieved
through a the use of a very high efficiency antenna whilst avoiding the
conventional tuning problems.
