3. Software Setting
In order for air puff or shock to work, the covers have to be put in place because the sensors inside the covers are required to detect the animal moves.
There are two buttons on the control screen:
Gas – when the button is pressed, the air stimulus is enabled. When the button is released, the air stimulus is disabled.
Gas_T – if the value is none, the air puff will continue to work every time the animal is in the grid area. If the value is set to a number, say 5, the air puff will be delivered 5 times.
Note that the air puff and shock can work at the same time if both of them are enabled.
