There budget fence energisers for use with strip grazing and also large energisers for use with huge fence systems available.
When choosing an electric fence energiser you firstly have to look at the power source you are going to use. We have mains fence energiser, 12v battery fence energisers, dry battery energisers and solar electric fencer units to choose from. Your decision will depend on your proximity to a power source, budget, whether the fence will be temporary or permanents and the animal you are fencing. The size of your electric fence is also an important factor in deciding which energiser you need. Each fence energiser has 3 distance ratings giving you the amount of fence an energiser can power with no vegetation, moderate vegetation and high vegetation. If you are unsure it is always best to use the moderate vegetation rating so you can see if the fence energiser is suitable.
Electric fence energisers are devices that send pulses of electricity through a wire fence to deter animals from touching it. They're commonly used in agriculture to keep livestock contained and predators out.
Here's a breakdown of how they work:
Power Source: Electric fence energisers can be powered by mains electricity, batteries, or solar panels. The choice of power source depends on the size of the fence, the availability of mains power, and the budget.
Pulse Output: The energiser sends out short, high-voltage pulses of electricity at regular intervals. The voltage is high enough to give an animal a shock, but not high enough to cause serious harm.
- Fence: The electrical pulses travel through the wires of the fence. The fence should be well-insulated to prevent the electricity from leaking to the ground.
- Grounding: The energiser also needs to be connected to a grounding rod. This is important for safety, as it helps to ensure that the electricity doesn't leak to the ground and shock someone who touches the fence.
Electric fence energisers can be an effective way to keep animals contained, but it's important to use them safely and responsibly. Here are some safety tips:
- Always follow the manufacturer's instructions for installing and using the energiser.
- Make sure the fence is well-maintained and in good condition.
- Post warning signs around the fence to let people know that it is electrified.
- Never touch the fence yourself, even if it is turned off.
