The title of this project is “Automatic Fish Feeder for Cultivation Pond”. The objective of this project is to design and manufacture a prototype automatic fish feeder which will be used in cultivation pond. Besides that, another objective of this project is to use the programmable logic controller (PLC) as a controller to control the machine. The components for the developed machine can be divided into two types which are automation blocks and mechanical parts. Automation blocks components includes a power window motor, limit switch, relays and a PLC controller. The mechanical parts include valves and also the mechanical structure of the machine. Results show that the machine would be able to feed the fish at a certain time range which is being set by the user using the built-in timer in the PLC controller. Besides that, the feed would be distributed across the pond for a certain distance by using a blower (fan) which will be rotating at a certain angle thru and fro. Since this is a prototype machine, an actual machine can be produced for the future. Besides that, one of the main future developments is to network the whole system which means by combining a few PLCs and controlling them from only one control center. As a conclusion, this project is quite successful because it is able to fulfill all of the objectives stated and also performing up to expectation.
