Indicates the peak impulse voltage in case of a short, leak-free fence (low load) or without a fence. Because energiser voltages are quite high, the values are often expressed in kilovolts (kV), i.e., in thousands of volts.
Voltage at 500 Ohm load
Indicates the peak impulse voltage if the fence is heavily loaded.
The maximum energy that the energiser can build up for a shock.
Maximum output energy
Indicates the shock intensity, in other words, the maximum energy the fence energiser is capable of supplying to the fence in a single impulse. The higher the energy, the longer the fence serviceable by the energiser. A high-energy shock is also more perceptible, since it lasts longer. When comparing energisers, this is a value worth paying attention to.
Indicates the maximum actual electricity consumption. In case of a mains energiser, 10W power in round-the-clock use means an annual consumption of 87.6kWh. At a price of €0.15/kWh, using the energiser would cost about €13 a year. A battery energiser is powered from a battery. In many models, power consumption varies depending on the energiser’s power setting and/or fence load. The maximum battery life (in hours, h) can be estimated by dividing the declared capacity of the battery (e.g., 60Ah = 60,000mAh) by the energiser’s declared power consumption: 60,000mAh/100mA = 600h = 25 days.
Indicative number of earthing rods
Recommended quantity for the energiser in question. Instead of a single figure, it is indicated as a range, for example, 1-3 pcs., since in dry soil, more earthing rods are required as compared to moist soil. The same applies in case of a more powerful energiser and longer fence.
Maximum theoretical fence length
The longest theoretical single-wire fence built of thick metal wire in which the fence voltage can still be sufficient for fence functionality. Indicated in kilometres. In practice, such a situation is truly rare, almost impossible. Nevertheless, alike maximum output energy, the value is useful, for example, when comparing energiser models from different manufacturers.
Maximum theoretical fence length (light vegetation)
A value more suitable for comparison when assessing the suitability of an energiser for your fence. Refers to a situation where the fence consists of conductors that conduct electricity well and there is little vegetation in contact with the fence. Note that this value indicates the total length of the fence, i.e., with all of the fence conductor strands combined.
Maximum theoretical fence length (moderate vegetation)
Refers to a situation where there is more vegetation in contact with the fence. Note that this value indicates the total length of the fence, i.e., with all of the fence conductor strands combined.
