READ INSTALLATION AND OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE USING. WARNING: RISK OF ELECTRIC SHOCK CAUTION: RISK OF ELECTRIC SHOCK WHEN COVER IS REMOVED. REFER SERVICING TO QUALIFIED SERVICE PERSONNEL.
Congratulations on purchasing a high quality low impedance electric fence charger. A low impedance charger will maintain a substantial charge to the fence if the fence is loaded by grass or other vegetation.
This charger operators from a 120VAC supply.
INSIDE INSTALLATION ONLY!
For best performance from your new electric fence charger, mount the fence charger securely using the mounting tabs built into the plastic box (you will need to rotate the tabs to extend above the plastic box). You will need a good connection to the ground (earth). Install 1 ground rod eight feet into the ground for each 4 joules of output power, plus one for the unit(see diagram inside).
Connect the ground rod to the ground terminal of the electric fence charger with a 12 GA. or larger wire. After making sure that the electric fence charger is not plugged into the supply source, you should connect the Fence terminal to the electric fence wire insulated from the posts that surrounds the area in which you will maintain your animals. Then ,plug the electric fence charger into a 120VAC supply.
TROUBLESHOOTING: The light on the front of the unit should blink each time the charger clicks (~once per second). If the light does not blink with every click of the charger, but skips a click, then the fence is heavily loaded and should be checked. When the charger is clicking and the light does not blink at all then the fence is shorted or fuse is blown. Please refer to troubleshooting label on the charger. To prevent electric shock, always disconnect the charger before attempting to remove the short from the fence.
Do not plug the charger into a ground fault interrupter (GFI) outlet. The powerful internal surge suppressor will trip a GFI outlet. Replace with a normal outlet.
Fuse Replacement: Replace fuse only with 3AC recommended fuse size. SEe troubleshooting labels on your charger for correct fuse size. Polarized Plug To reduce the risk of electric shock, this fence controller has a polarized plug (one blade is wider than the other). This plug will fit in a polarized outlet only one way. If the plug doesn not fit fully in the outlet, reverse the plug. If it still does not fit, contact a qualified electrician to install the proper outlet. Do not change the plug in any way.
