What is EquiFone?
Most expectant mares will lie completely prone before and during the foaling process.  EquiFone was designed to detect when the mare is lying in the foaling position, and alert the breeder via telephone to help insure that someone is in attendance during foal delivery.

How does EquiFone work?
he EquiFone system is composed of a transmitter and a receiver/dialer. The transmitter is placed in a small pouch, which is then attached to the mares halter.  When the mare lies in the foaling position, the transmitter sends a signal to the receiver/dialer. The receiver/dialer is a microcomputer telephone dialing system that calls 1 - 4 pre-stored telephone numbers and transmits a pre-recorded message to alert the breeder to the fact that the mare is lying in the foaling position

The  receiver/dialer receives the signal from the transmitter on the mare when she lies in the foaling position.  It then dials all of the pre-stored telephone numbers and plays a pre-recorded message to each as they are answered. The receiver/dialer is placed in an indoor area, and connects to a standard phone jack or the GSM Wireless Unit.  It is powered by an AC adapter that plugs into a standard electrical outlet.  The membrane keypad on the receiver/dialer is dustproof. 

NOTE: To use EquiFone, you must have at least 2 telephone numbers available. One for EquiFone to call out on, and another one for EquiFone to call to. EquiFone cannot call the same telephone number that it is connected to.  
A typical installation would be:
The receiver/dialer is plugged into a land line phone jack or the GSM Wireless Unit, and it calls a cellular or other phone to alert the breeder, when the mare lies in the foaling position.

If you do not have a land line you may be able to use our 3G Wireless Unit described below. 

The transmitter is powered by a 9 volt battery. It is inserted into an adjustable pouch that is attached to the rings on the  sides of the mares halter, and it hangs under the head just forward of the throatlatch area.  When the mare lies flat out in the foaling position the transmitter sends a signal to the receiver/dialer..  There is a built in delay of 8 - 10 seconds before the transmitter sends the signal to the receiver/dialer  to prevent false alarms in the event the mare just lies down and gets up again.   The mare (including miniature horses) does not realize she has the transmitter on.

Our transmitter mounts on the mare in the throatlatch area.  Mounting it in this manner prevents it from getting wet when the mare drinks and from getting hung up on water buckets and feeders which can result in false alarms.  Other brands of halter foaling alarms mount their transmitter under the lower jaw which can allow these types of problems to occur.

There is no limit to the number of transmitters that can be used simultaneously with one receiver/dialer.


3G Wireless Unit
The 3G Wireless Unit works just like a cell phone.  Instead of plugging the receiver/dialer into a land line phone jack, you can plug it into the  Wireless Unit and the Wireless Unit makes the calls.  The Wireless Unit will operate world wide.   You must provide a 3G SIM  card for it.  You can purchase a "pay as you go" 3G SIM card from several vendors on-line or from your cell phone provider.                                


Transmission Range

The distance for transmission from the transmitter on the mare, to the receiver/dialer is up to 500 feet.  Transmission strength is enhanced by having a clear line of site between the transmitter and the receiver/dialer.

Additional Features
EquiFone will work for any size/type horse.  The only difference between horse sizes is the length of the straps that connect the transmitter pouch to the mares halter.
