Choosing the right Energiser:
Once you've decided what type of electric fence you want for your property, you will need an energiser. There are two types of energisers:
240v powered – these are energizer units which are plugged into a 240v power supply.
Battery/Solar powered – these are energiser units which can be left out in your pasture and require a battery to run them.
Two batteries can be rotated on a regular basis or a solar panel can be an effective means of continuously charging your battery. *Note: Some units will operate on either mains, battery or solar. Check the model specifications.
Steps to Good Grounding.....
Grounding is perhaps the most neglected component of many fence systems. We recommend three ground rods, 1.8m deep and spaced 3 to 4m apart are the minimum recommendation. Never attach copper to steel. Electrolysis can occur and result in corrosion which weakens shocking power. Use galvanized ground wire and grounding rods to avoid this problem.
