How to Install Your Electric Fence Charger

Installation and Location

Your Zareba® electric fence charger should be installed in a clean, sheltered location away from direct moisture and sunlight (with the exception of solar powered charger). It should be accessible to a ground rod system that is separate from the grounding of a home or other barnoutbuilding.

If you're using an AC charger , it should be positioned as close to the power source and the electric fence as possible.

Mount the fence charger on a post or wall using a screw or nail through the hanger hole in the charger case.
