General information

  • Due to the use of the most modern technologies, we can offer you a wide range of functions for fencee energizers compared to competing models.
  • In addition to common benefits such as high durability of products, we also offer special features for increased protection of animals and the environment.
  • Large terminals for connecting wires and grounding are available on the front panel of the power supplies for convenient installation. This allows quick and safe connection of fencing wires.
  • A controlled electronic system with Safe Shock technology ensures maximum safety for your pet.
  • This is a new generation of fences that excels in high quality and very long life.
  • Our fences and some related products are manufactured exclusively in the Czech Republic - we rely on the ability to control the quality of the entire production process. We select qualified suppliers of all necessary components.
  • Thanks to the reliability and quality of our energizers, we can offer you an extended warranty.
  • In the event of a fault or damage to the energizer, eg in the event of a lightning strike, water damage, etc., our technical service is available.
  • Fence energizers are subjected to demanding tests in a climatic chamber during production, they are tested in such conditions as occur in normal use

How to choose the right energizer?

Choosing a suitable energizer is very important for the proper functioning of the fence system.
Our matrix can help you choose a energizer - just choose the animal and the size of your system. However, it is important to consider and not forget all other circumstances - the quality of earthing, the quality of wires, the toughness of animals, etc. You can download the image in full quality HERE.

Troubleshooting

  • Before you consider your device to be defected, make sure that the problem is not caused by improper use or a low battery. A list of possible faults is given in the instructions, that are included in each package of the energizer.
  • If none of this helps, contact the service department or send the product for assessment to your retail seller.

How does an electric fence work?

The electric fence consists of an electric energizer and a fence set out by poles and conductors. The electric energizer supplies the fence line with current pulses. These pulses are characterized by high voltage and very short duration (less than 0.0003 sec.).
However electric shock is very annoying and animals quickly learn to respect the fence.
An electric fence is not only a physical but also a mental obstacle.

10 principles for the correct functioning of the fence

You should follow these principles, if you want to have a safe electric fence.

  1. Quality fencee energizer with suitable impulse strength.
  2. Keep fence clear, free of vegetation such as grass, shrubs and branches. Otherwise the pulses are "diverted" into the ground, reducing the efficiency of the fence and excessive battery consumption (especially for battery types).
  3. Ensure perfect earthing. At least 1 m deep or in several places. It is advisable to choose the dampest possible location - the conductivity increases. Use stainless, well-conducting metal. Ensure a conductive connection between the ground rods and between the pulse source itself, including the contacts on the device.
  4. Use original connectors. Do not connect wires by knots. In an emergency use at least a soft binding wire to support the connection. The fence wires must not be interrupted anywhere.
  5. Use only well-conducting material. The use of low-resistance conductors is necessary especially for long fences (over 2 km of conductor).
  6. The conductor and especially the ground rod must not be rusty - the rust insulates.
  7. Use tapes for horses grazeings, not wire. The tape is more visible and does not cut.
  8. Find a good connection between the energizer and the fence. Use a high voltage cable for a perfect connection.
  9. For battery energizers check the battery level regularly.
  10. Keep in mind that you must measure a minimum voltage of 2000 V anywhere in the fence. This value will exceed the skin resistance of the animals. For large and less sensitive animals, this value is 3000 V.

Recommended wire heights

For electric fence to be effective, it is necessary having suitable installation, which usually depends on the type of animal.
Normal installation will ensure the standard function of the fence, ie. through the ground and touching the wires closes the circuit, the animal causes a short-circuit and receives an impulse. For better functionality, stronger but still safe impulse, you can also install a minus wire in fence among ordinary plus-charge wires. The impulse then occurs when these wires are connected by the animal.

For a complete list of recommended heights and how to install the wires, see the Download - first aid.

Are your generators durable? Can it endure rain, snow or sun shining?

Yes, we manufacture all our products in such a way, that they are not harmed by ordinary weather conditions. Plastic parts are made with UV protection. All parts are thoroughly insulated and sealed with each other.

If you do not put the energizer in a puddle or it does not fall into a barrel of water, then we guarantee you watertightness.
