The FoalGuard 3G Mobile Phone Dialler connects to your foaling alarm. When the mare lays down to foal setting off your alarm it activates the 3G dialler. The 3G foaling alarm dialler works on the mobile phone network. When activated it sends a phone call and can text up to 6 different numbers programmed into the foaling alarm dialler. The dialler is programmed by SMS commands that you send from your mobile phone and relies on good phone reception. The dialler works on the 3G network which is available in most rural areas. If you do not have good phone reception contact us, we have mobile network boosters available that can overcome signal issues. You will need an activated mobile sim card to use with the dialler. The FoalGuard Dialler can be plugged into all foaling alarms built after 01-08-2014, for older models see below.

Optional battery connection lead

Optional extra battery lead is used to run the foaling alarm from an auxiliary battery which allows you to use a foaling alarm where there is no mains power. Example: in a car or caravan, at aggistment or a paddock down the road. You will need an auxiliary battery, the same or similar to a car battery which will give you several days running time before needing to be recharged. This lead simply attaches to the battery with alligator type clamps and plugs into your foaling alarm.

FoalGuard Foaling Alarm

Detailed Information

Monitor your mare from the comfort of your home.
Non invasive to your mare.

The FoalGuard Alarm lets you know when your mare lays down in the foaling position so you can be there if assistance is needed.

When your mare lays down in the foaling position a signal is sent, after a short delay, from the foaling alarm transmitter (fitted to the halter) to the foaling alarm receiver (positioned in the home), activating an audible alarm.

This foaling alarm can also be used as a colic alert or for any animal that can wear a halter and lays down to give birth.

FoalGuard foaling alarms are also equipped with a 10 second delay to help prevent the alarm from being triggered when the mare rolls or scratches.

This foaling alarm is a live indication of what your mare is doing. When the mare lays down flat the audible alarm is triggered and will sound after 10 seconds. When your mare stands or sits up the audible alarm stops but the activation light will stay on, if your mare lays down again the audible alarm will again activate. This is invaluble in evaluating what your mare is doing before dragging yourself out of bed.

Long transmission range

FoalGuard foaling alarms are rated at *3000meters (3280yrds or 9,840 feet) in open air with no obstructions.

*As with any wireless product they work to optimal distance only when there are no obstructions or interference, the more obstructions the shorter the distance the signal can travel. We have a repeater available for areas where there are too many obstructions and for extra long distance

We can only give a description of working distance and it will vary for every property.

The distance they will work depends on what is between the transmitter and the receiver, i.e., Walls, sheds, buildings, trees, tall thick grass, fences. Our transmitters will go through most obstructions very well. But undulation of the ground, i.e., hills and hollows will restrict the signal the most. To give you an example, testing on our property with the standard indoor aerial from our back pasture and going through 1 house wall, 2 large barns/sheds, several fences and a 150 foot tall bank of pine trees plus other smaller obstructions, has shown they will work consistently to over 300meters (328 yrds or 984 feet). This is one tenth of the rated range. So the clearer the area between the transmitter and receiver the better the distance you will get.

The Base station (receiver) comes with a 3.6m cable as an optional extra, so you can mount the aerial outside to improve the distance if needed.

The FoalGuard Base station (receiver)

The base station comes standard with Power on/off switch
(with small led light to indicate power on/off)
1 alarm mode switch
(audio on/off)
1 sleep switch
(Activates a 30 minute timer before the alarm will become active)
3 signal lights
(one for sleep mode, one for alarm on/off, one for power on/off)
1 x 17cm aerial
(mounts on top of the case or can be mounted outside with optional extra extension cable )
1 x Aerial cable

The Foaling alarm receiver (Base station) runs from a 12v power adapter which plugs directly into your mains power or can be run from a 12v battery (battery lead extra)

When the Base station receives a signal from the transmitter it will sound a 70 decibel alarm to alert you that the mare has laid down.

Sleep Switch

The Sleep switch is for when your mare lays down to sleep you can press the sleep switch which activates a timer (approx 30 minutes) before the alarm will become audible again. (Most horses will not sleep for longer than 30 minutes on their side.) so you don't have to wait for her to get up before turning the alarm back on, which means more sleep and less stress for you. There is an over-ride, if the sleep switch is pressed by accident. While the foaling alarm receiver is in sleep mode the alarm led light will stay on until your mare gets up.

Activation Alert

This is a new feature. When the mare activates the alarm a signal light is activated, this lets you know if the mare has layed down even if you have been away from the alarm. This signal light will stay on until it is manualy switched off.

Transmitter and pouch

The FoalGuard transmitter fits easily and securely with Velcro to any standard halter, mini to full size. Please only use standard halters as the transmitters will not sit correctly on rope halters or halters with sliding jaw straps and this may cause false alarms.

The Transmitter, including the pouch only weighs 170 grams . Pouches come in Royal Blue, Navy Blue or Funky Purple ripstop nylon.
They are also machine washable. Please advise us of your colour choice.

If you have more than one mare to monitor, you can use as many transmitters as you like.

Additional transmitters can be ordered on request

 

Battery power and transmission distance

The biggest cause of failures in foaling alarms is low battery power. The lower the battery power the less distance the signal can travel.
If a foaling alarm's battery becomes too low it may not have enough strength to transmit the signal to the base station (receiver).

Some foaling alarms run on very low power and the batteries will last for a greater time, but by doing this they sacrifice the transmission distance they can work.

If you relate a foaling alarm to a TV remote control. Under normal use a TV remote is only used for a few seconds and the battery will last for months.
But if you held the TV remote on, it would only last for a few hours
The same applies to a foaling alarm, the more a mare lays down to sleep, the faster the battery will drain.

Every mare is different and some lay down to sleep much more than others.
To avoid battery failure use a good quality alkaline battery or better and check your battery often, using a multimeter or battery testing device available
at most electronic stores. Never use a rechargeable battery as the useful life will be far less than a good quality non rechargeable battery.

I check my batteries once every 3 to 4 days on some mares it will last for weeks on others I get 6 to 7 days.

 

Warranty and repairs

2 year repair or replace warranty on parts and labour (warranty excludes transmitter pouch)
We understand that in the event of any failure, your mare will not wait for a foaling alarm to be repaired or replaced before she has her foal
We will do our best to service any warranty or repair as fast as possible.
For full warranty and repair details please go to our Warranty page.

Replacement pouches are available
