Is a mains energiser the sollution for you?
When selecting a fence charger, it is important to have a clear view of your situation. A mains energiser is the perfect sollution when you would use it for permanent fencing.
Next to this, it is important to be able to connect the energiser to a mains powers supply. Eventhough all mains energisers have a IPX4 rating, it is recommended to put up your energiser somewhere dry. In most occasions we see the device being put up in a shed the device is put up in a shed.
If you are in need for a high power fence charger, a mains electric fence energiser is also recommended. The high end mains energisers have a higher stored energy(J) capacity compared to battery and solar energisers. The stored energy is an indication of the shock produced by the energiser.
Location of the energiser
Mains powered electric fence energisers should be put-up close to a mains plug. This is quite logical for the mains energiser category.
For the mains energiser to perform at it's best it should be located near the fence. However it is possible to connect the device with a lead out cable to a paddock a bit further from the shed. Please be aware that, in this case, your energiser should be a bit more powerfull.
Types of mains energisers
There are different types of mains energisers. Depending on the features you are looking for, we have the right device for your fence.
The most common fencers operate solely with mains power. These energisers have to be connected to a socket to charge your fence.
Next to this we offer dual powered energisers. These models are both mains and battery powered. These models are mostly used when multiple fences need to be powered and there is not always a mains plug nearby.
Performance mains energiser
Compared to solar and battery energisers, mains energisers have a good cost to performance ratio. A mains energiser often has a higher performance when we look at the maximum output voltage and maximum output joules.
Where the devices are beaten by battery and solar energisers is its mobility. If you do not have a dual use device, these models need to be installed near a mains plug. This limits the mobility of the energisers.
To get the best performance from your mains fence charger, it is important to have it properly installed. When installing the charger, it is important to use at least the amount of recommended earth stakes. Using less will result in a less performing energiser.
The fence connected to your device could also function less, when a lot of vegetation is touching it or a branch is touching the fence. Use electric fence testers to check if your fence is performing optimal.
