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

How does EquiPage work?
The EquiPage system is composed of a transmitter,  a repeater,  a pocket pager,  and an optional auto phone 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 repeater, which in turn sends a signal to the pocket pager.  The pocket pager  then beeps to alert the breeder to the fact that the mare is lying in the foaling position.  The optional auto phone dialer will automatically call  pre-programmed numbers and play a pre-recorded message, when the mare lies in the foaling position.

Repeater
The repeater is placed in an indoor area, such as a barn.  It is powered by an AC adapter that plugs into a standard electrical outlet. The repeater uses 2  antennas.  One is used to receive the signal from the transmitter attached to the horse.  The other antenna attaches to the repeater by a 15 foot coaxial cable, and is used to transmit the signal to the  pocket pager.

 

Transmitter
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 repeater.  The repeater then sends a signal to the pocket pager. There is a built in delay of 8 - 10 seconds before the transmitter sends the signal to the repeater  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. 

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

Pocket Pager

The pocket pager is powered by 2 AAA batteries.  When the mare lies in the foaling position, triggering an alarm signal, the pocket pager reacts with an audible beeping sound and the LED light will blink. The pocket pager performs an automatic battery condition check when on and in the stand-by-mode.  If the batteries are low, the pager will beep twice every few minutes. There is no limit to the number of pocket pagers that can be used with one repeater.


Auto Telephone Dialer

For those situations when you cannot be within the normal operating range of the EquiPage system, we offer the EquiPage auto telephone dialer.  The dialer is an automatic dialing device that transmits a pre-recorded message to 1 - 4 telephone numbers.  The dialer plugs into the back of the repeater, and is activated when the repeater receives a signal from the transmitter on the mare, indicating that she is lying in the foaling position. 

Each EquiPage repeater comes with the dialer connector installed, and you may purchase the optional telephone dialer at any time, if desired.

The dialer connects to a standard phone jack.  If you don't have a land line phone jack, we offer our Wireless Terminal described below.

Wireless Terminal
The  Wireless Teminal is a base station mobile phone.  It enables connection  of landline devfices such as the EquiFone system,  a telephone handset, fax machines, etc.  It transmits using the mobile phone networks.  Being completely wireless, the Wireless Terminal is used in those sutiations where a land line is not available.   The Wireless Terminal will operate world wide.   You must provide a SIM  card for it.  You can purchase a "pay as you go"  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 repeater, is up to 500 feet.  The distance for transmission from the repeater to the pocket pager is up to 1 mile.  Transmission strength is enhanced by having a clear line of site.

Additional Features
EquiPage 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.
