If you hooked the red terminal to the ground bed and the green terminal to the fence line, what is the fence voltage?

When we hooked up out Gallagher s20 electric fence charger, several YEARS ao, my husband thought the red terminal was the ground terminal and the green terminal was supposed to attach to the fence. Here’s what I don’t understand: it appears to be working(?). Why? Also, have we permanently damaged the charger? I’m so confused.

Check out our video on using the voltmeter

If no voltage send your energizer in for repair with your receipt of purchase it will be under warranty. Hope this helps!

It is low amperage and not dangerous. Best of luck with your goats! We’d love to see photos!

Everything seems perfect. BUT when we use the tester (probe in ground handset on fence line) it consistently says the voltage is 9.4 To 9.8. meaning we have nearly 10,000 volts going through it. Tester says to multiply reading by 1000. Isn’t this dangerous? Its a seven strand fence (all live) going around 1.5 Acres to control goats.

It has stopped pulsing and just emits a solid green light on the indicator and a solid, somewhat weak tone. I checked grounding and all connections. Everything seems good. I unplugged it for a while thinking maybe it’d reset. It’s grounded with 2 3′ rods. Any ideas – did this thing just fail on me?
