Which Electric Fence Controller Fits Your Needs?
Your three biggest considerations for choosing a fencer are your power source, the length of your fence, and the type of animal you’re keeping in or out. Please call us at 855-5-FISHOCK if you need help choosing the right charger.
AC-Powered Electric Fence Charger
These chargers plug into standard 110-volt outlets and can provide the best output for your fencing. If you have access to a nearby power source, this type of charger comes highly recommended, no matter what type of animals you need to contain or exclude.
DC-Powered Electric Fence Charger
Running on battery power, our DC fencer is a great option when there’s no power source nearby. The chargers run on 6, 9, or 12-volt batteries, and some models can use rechargeable batteries, while others will need replacing. The more often the fence is grounding (when animals or plants touch it) the faster the batteries will drain.
Solar-Powered Electric Fence Charger
A solar fence charger is an eco-friendly way to power your fence when electricity is unavailable. It’s perfect for fences that are not near an AC outlet and need to remain “hot”, as with containing cattle or other livestock. The chargers consist of two main parts – the battery and the solar panel. The solar panel absorbs energy from the sun in order to charge the battery, which keeps your fence running.
Keep your fence line powered cost-effectively – our solar energizer line offers low-impedance technology, which means less drain on your batteries!

I. HOW TO INSTALL
YOUR FENCE CONTROLLER
Grounding Instructions: This controller must be grounded. If it should malfunction or break down, grounding reduces the risk of electrical shock by providing a path of low resistance for the electric current. AC line operated controllers are provided with a polarized 2-blade attachment plug for use on a 120-volt circuit. The plug must be inserted into an appropriate outlet that is properly installed in accordance with all local codes and ordinances.
Grounding of this product is provided by a properly installed ground rod electrically connected to the fence controller output ground terminal. An internal fault on an improperly grounded fence controller could result in a risk of high electric shock currents on the electrified fence.
DANGER - For an AC line operated fence controller, do not modify the plug provided with the controller if it will not fit the outlet; have a proper outlet installed by a qualified electrician. If it is necessary to use an extension cord, use only a polarized extension cord that will accept the plug for the unit. Repair or replace a damaged cord.
Install your fence controller under cover and protect all electrical connections from moisture. The fence controller lead-out wire carries voltage from the (hot) fence terminal to the fence. A jumper wire carries voltage from one electrified fence line to another (i.e. gates, buried wire, corners, and multiple wire fence systems). Use insulted cable that is manufactured for electric fencing (10 to 14 gauge wire insulated to 20,000 volts). Do not use common electrical wiring; it is only rated for 600 volt use.
Install at least one 6 ft. galvanized or copper ground rod within 20 ft. of the fence controller. Use a ground rod clamp to attach the insulated ground wire to the ground rod (clamp must bite into rod and ground wire). The ground wire should be 10 to 14 gauge wire and insulated from 600V to 20,000 volts. For best results, install three ground rods into the earth 6 ft. deep, spaced 10ft. apart. If possible, install ground rods in areas of constant moisture.
