Cyclops Electric Fence Chargers and Energizers

What effects the resistance of my fence?

Posted by 1 on

An ohm is unit of electrical resistance between two conductors. Resistance directly affects the output of the charger. Generally, the relationship is negative. Higher resistance(ohms) means less power output by the charger. The higher the resistance of your fence, the weaker the shock to the animal. This can be plotted on a chart, but we've taken it a step further, and directly plot the output to the animal (the animal has an ohm rating as well). What effects the resistance of my fence?

Power Power is a very important thing to consider when selecting a fence charger. When we say 'power', we mean the number of joules the fence charger puts out.

If a 5 joule charger will power your fence, there is no benefit to be gained by getting a 32 joule charger. Your fence will determine your power needs. Generally, output power declines the further you get from your charger, the more vegetation, and...

Electric fence. How important is the ground connection? For most installations of electric fence chargers, the ground connection is required for the shock to be effective. If the Fence and the Ground terminals of the fence charger are connected to different strands of the fence then, the ground connection would not be required to get the shock. In this case the full shock of the fence charger would be felt between the different strands of the fence but not necessarily from the fence to ground. This method is primarily used when the ground is very dry (desert conditions). For the...
