Q.I hooked up the fence charger, even with the ground and live terminals disconnected the unit clicks constantly when plugged in, is this normal?
A.

This is a pulsating energizer. It is normal to hear a light clicking or ticking noise, even under no load.

Q.How many watts does this unit draw?
A.

This energizer uses approximately 3.5 watts per hour. It has an amp draw of less than 1.0 amps.

Q.I´m looking for a eletric charger to keep my cats inside my yard. I´m looking for a low energy output equipament to not hurt my pets, just scare than. Is the Zareba 5 Mile AC Powered Low Impedance Charger what i´m looking for or you have something less powrfull???
A.

To contain pets such as dogs, we recommend a minimum of 700-1,000 volts on a fence line. This energizer outputs approximately 6,000 volts under no load.

We recommend using a pulsating energizer such as our Zareba® 2 Mile AC Powered Low Impedance Charger (model EA2M-Z) which outputs approximately 1,922 volts under no load.

Keep in mind that the length of wire, type of wire, grounding, etc can all have an impact on the amount of voltage seen on a fence line. Electric fencing is not recommended for pets under 10 lbs.

Q.What is the ideal way to ground my 5mile, .1 joule charger? I had it set up using a 3 ft rod and used the 17gauge aluminum wired designed for charger systems. I moved it today and cant seem to get a shock out of it. I hear the light clicking sound but when I attach the ground, I lose most of the clicking sound and get no shock.
A.

We recommend using three grounding rods, buried 6-8 feet deep in the soil, spaced 10 feet apart for a better grounding system. Grounding rods can be copper, copper coated, galvanized steel, or rebar. Please feel free to contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-5-ZAREBA (1-855-592-7322) for additional troubleshooting assistance.
