Our energisers comply with the European Standard EN 60335- 2-76 and do not cause radio or TV interference. Our energisers also comply with European Directive (EMC) 89/336/EEC) and are printed with the CE mark.
An Energiser (or Fencer) is the electrical device that converts mains, battery or solar power into pulses of electricity and pushes these pulses safely down the fence line to keep your target animal in or out of the fenced area.
Horizont began energiser production over 60 years ago therefore all energisers offered to you have this extensive German experience and research with over 50 patents built into their pedigree.
Pertinent use of modern technology has resulted in our electric fence energisers being able to deliver to your requirements under extreme situations whilst the HotShock and HoriSmart energisers offer you improved features over standard energisers on the market.
The Fence Energiser needs to be powerful enough to deliver a definite jolt when your horse (or target animal) touches it, even when its current is reduced by vegetation touching the fence line or (as sometimes happens) by moist, dewy early-morning conditions. Look for Electric fencing energisers that are rated by OUTPUT JOULES, this is a measure of the oomph with which the energiser is pulsing its thousands of volts of current into the fence once every second. One joule is a minimum rating for fencing that encloses up to five acres, it is recommend getting the most powerful energiser you can afford. A higher joule rating doesn't mean the fence's jolt--which can't injure horses or other animals--will be harder or more painful, but that it will be more consistent. The shock is created by the volts and the majority of energisers run between 4-6000. Only the specialist ones like the HotShock run at higher voltages to control difficult animals (Deer and other wildlife)
Mains powered energisers are cost effective to run and are generally more powerful than battery powered models. Always give serious consideration to installing a mains powered fence energiser and don't dismiss the idea, just because there isn't a power supply next to the fence. The mains energiser works pretty much the same way as a battery model, only with longer earth and fence leads, which you make using a lead out cable. It's possible to run High Voltage insulated cable up to 1/4 mile from an energiser to the fence without significant power loss.
MAKE SURE YOU CHOOSE AN ENERGISER CAPABLE OF CARRYING OUT ITS' TASK.This article will provide more information on selecting an energiser. All Electric Fence Energisers are supplied with a minimum two year warranty against manufacturing faults*. A comprehensive repair facility is available and loan energisers are available when repairs are necessary.
What animal is being controlled? Sheep and poultry have good insulation from their wool and feathers - use a higher voltage rating fence energiser even if the fence is short - hotSHOCK or Farmer range.) the higher running voltage bridges the wool or feathers. Pigs, horses and dogs are easily controlled.(Most others are suitable) A wimpy energizer gives you a wimpy fence, don't skimp here if you want the job done.
Some energisers simply push out the current and are generally cheaper (but cheerful), others have all sorts of bells and whistles and can be very handy, cheaper, safer and easier to use in the long run than the basic models.
* Warranty is against manufacturing faults and does not cover damage caused by flooding, water ingress, animal damage or lightning strike. Length of warranty varies between models.
