Smart Fix Electric Fence Fault Finder & Tester

The easiest way to find faults with your electric fence:

  • Digital voltmeter with built-in ampmeter that indicates fence voltage, amount of current and current direction.
  • The Fence Scout detects the directional flow of current (amps) aiding the operator to detect faults.
  • The arrow indicates the direction of the fault allowing you to cut down the investigation time.
  • Simply walk in the direction of the arrow testing as you go to locate the fault.
  • Also gives you an accurate voltage on the fence line at the same time.
  • N.B. Not effective with netting fences

Simply touch the Fence Scout to the electric fence and it will show the current voltage, ampage & the direction of current flow

  • Place it on any section of fence wire, moving it laterally to get a good contact. In a sound fence with no shorts the amp reading on the main screen will be zero, as nothing is flowing out of the system. The volt reading on the top right screen should read around 6000 volts. Any reading on the amp scale indicates some kind of fault on your fence. (See picture above) The more severe the fault, the higher the amp reading. You will also see an arrow pointing in the direction of the fault.
  • Follow the arrow until the reading drops or disappears - this indicates that you have moved just beyond the fault. In multi-wire fences you will need to test each wire in turn, starting at the top. If multiple faults exist it may be easier to isolate sections of fence so you can clear one section at a time.
  • Where a fence splits at a junction, take a reading of each line and follow the one where the reading is highest. The same applies if your fence is constructed with up and down links at the beginning of each section.
  • Pay particular attention to gateways and underground cable joints.

Carry Pouch Included.

  1. Great time saver 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 20th Jun 2017

    I had a major short on my fence but was unable to trace it and spent hours remaking joints and replacing wires. Once I got the tester it took me less than half an hour to trace the fault to rodent activity on an underground section. Expensive but it does a great job.
