I bought a new charger since the old one was 17 years old. If I just hook up the fence wire the charger appears to work. If I attach the ground wire it does not flash. I walked the fence and can’t see any problems. There is only one grounding wire that I see and the connections are good. It has worked for many years. Ideas?

Is there are a heavy weed load on your fence line? If so there is a lot more moisture in the evening and at night on the weeds that would cause a considerable drop in voltage.

Day time its working fine. But night time automatically voltage drop 6.6 KV to 1.5 KV. Afterwards its maintaining 1.5 KV. Please tell any solution for my problem. We changed Earth Pit. But no Result.

It sounds like you are having a grounding issue. Is the ground frozen where you are located? Do the sheep have heavy wool? Wool acts as an insulator. Was you helper wearing rubber shoes?
If the ground is frozen you will more than likely have to add more ground rods or create a posi/neg system. Check out this blog on Winter Grounding!

But there is no shock to the sheep and my helper grabbed the line twice and held it…no shock. How can 3 diff. Tests show voltage going through wire, yet no shock ? I heard one sheep get zapped when it tried to pass through and the wire hit a t post. Surely this is a clue.

This energizer is 1 joule stored energy, so that would be about .7 joule output. It sounds as though your energizer is undersized for the job. You may need to think about a larger energizer if you want to read a higher voltage.

It’s hooked to a Gallagher M100 charger with 3-10′ long grounding rods that are 10′ away from each other and fully in the ground. We tested the charger with the voltage tester and it lights up bright to 4000V. With the voltage tester the 600V, 1000V, 2000V and 3000V lights light up bright, the 4000V light only lights up about 1/4 where the fence wire is connected. The farther away the less the volts. There’s a complete section that is the farthest away from where the charger is connected to the wire that doesn’t light up at all on our voltage tester. We have made sure there is no foliage touching it. Please advise.

I want to add an additional rope that has steel or aluminum strands to shut off a certain area. Will there be a problem attaching a different type of poly rope to the copper poly rope? Thank-you
