Electric fence energiser (S60)
These 6 Joule electric fence energiser units are so powerful that they drain battery power very rapidly, so it is advisable to only use them with mains power. They can be plugged into your normal mains system. Mains units remain under cover and need to have cable laid to the nearest portion of available fence. They also need to be very well earthed and it is recommended that a minimum of two 1.5m metal rods (or two of our ER3 rods – not included) are driven into the ground nearby and connected to each other by strong wire. As with all energisers, if power is down or a slight tingle is felt when the rod is touched, more earthing is required.
The Speedrite SPE 60 electric fence energiser comes with a length of insulated cable instead of a set of fence leads when used with batteries. The leads cannot transfer the copious amount of power produced by the energiser. Any Speedrite energiser of 6 Joules and above is not recommended for use with fence leads. If used from a mains source we can supply the required length of lead (R59B + R28).
