A Rough Guide To determine which Energiser (Length of fence x the number of lines of tape/wire) + at least 50% for future expansion.
Use a stronger Energiser when containing or excluding animals which are well insulated (such as sheep & rabbits). Similarly, it is advisable to choose a stronger Energiser for powering Electric Netting as the netting can easily touch vegetation, which causes earthing and power loss.
It is always preferable to trade up in energisers and be ready for the future. WARRANTY: Our aim is to offer VALUE FOR MONEY and to supply good quality and reliable products at the right price. All our Energisers have a two-year warranty. For reliability choose a Mains or Solar Energiser rather than a battery Energiser if practical as your system will only be as good as your batteries.
To help you make a short list of energisers to choose from:
Example: If you have a 5 Acre (2.02 Hectare) area to fence, you will see from the guide that your single line would be approximately 600 metres long (i.e 100+200+100+200 = 600).
