AC - Low Impedance Fence Controllers Comparison

 

AC-operated fence controllers are the best option where you have a reliable source of 110-volt electrical power. We offer a range of low impedance controllers for distances up to 200 miles. Low impedance fence controllers increase the joules (energy or shock) on the fence line if weeds or other vegetation touch the line. We recommend using an AC Low Impedance electric fence charger whenever possible.

AC - Solid State Controller Comparison

 

We offer solid state electric fence controllers to meet your needs. Solid state controllers deliver medium amperage shock in medium duration pulses. Note: The higher the amperage, the more intense shock the animal will feel.

DC - Low Impedance Charger Comparison

 

Battery-operated fence controllers are ideal for remote locations or areas without access to AC power. We offer a range of low impedance fence controllers for ranges of 50 miles and under. Low impedance fence controllers increase joule output on the fence line. This increase in shock helps maintain the power on the fence line if weeds or other vegetation touch the line.

Solar Powered Chargers

 

All of our solar fence controllers use low impedance technology to maintain maximum energy levels. They can compensate for energy loss caused by vegetation or fence load, enabling them to power long fences with moderate weeds. Our solar energizers feature 4, 6,9, or 12 volt batteries.

Perimeter Length

 

An acre is a total area of 43,560 square feet. Acreage is not limited to shape. An acre can be round, oval, square, retangular, or irregular as long as the square foot is correct. Below you will find a chart that converts distance into perimeter lengths. Note that these lengths are based on a square-shaped perimeter.

Voltage Minimum By Animal

 

Volts are a measurement of electrical pressure. Voltage pushes amperage down the fence wire. Voltage is only a part of the electric shock your animal feels. You should consider joule output when purchasing an electric fence controller. Joule output is the measurement of electric energy used to rate low impedance fence controllers. It is the effective power the controller delivers to the fence, independent of other factors that can drain voltage. The higher the joules, the more intense shock the animal will feel.
