Frequently Asked Questions

Cyclops Fence Chargers are known for their exceptional built-in lightning protection, making them stand out from other brands in the market. While some companies may cut costs by removing parts, Cyclops continues to enhance their chargers by adding necessary components to improve lightning protection. With at least 8000 Joules of protection, our fence chargers can withstand even the most severe weather conditions.
When it comes to the number of ground rods needed, we recommend one ground rod plus an additional rod for every 4 joules of output power. These rods should be installed 6 to 8 feet deep and at least 10 feet apart to ensure proper grounding.
