If so, have you tested your ground bed? If you are reading more than 2,000 volts on your ground, you have a dead-short somewhere on your fence line. Typically this is caused by faulty insulators, underground wires, or your bracing system. Check out our video on voltmeters to learn how to successfully test your ground bed.

We do not advise this. We recommend each ground bed be 100’ apart. Connecting these ground beds could be causing your low voltage. We highly recommend investing in a fence tester. Check out Kencove.com for our complete line of fence testers.

Unfortunately, our company specializes in livestock fencing. We cannot offer any advice on feline fencing.

If I disconnect my ground I get a pulse on the fence but when the ground is connected I get nothing on the fence. We’ve checked the fence twice and it all looks good. There’s nothing on the fence wire right after the charger.

tester, but i tested it myself and just get a very small feeling of a charge. i put a 8 ft. ground rod with copper wire to it and the fence. there is another ground rod thats connected to my house breaker bix about 12 ft. away. this is a one wire fence about 900 ft.

I have installed an electric wire (using ring insulators) along the top of my existing fence and stone wall, powered by an electric shepherd ESB25. The fence appears to be electrified, but my cats are still getting out. I have seen her push under the fence with no ill effect. I think this might be because the gap between pulses is too long(so she is getting through in the gaps of electric) , or because her feet are touching the wall and not the ground and so not completing the circuit? Could you please advise?

If not, a recent storm may have damaged your energizer. If you haven’t experienced a storm, do you have voltmeter to check the output voltage on your energizer? There are a lot of things that could be happening here. You can send your energizer in for service by our certified technician. Please include your name, phone number, and address on a sheet of paper attached to your energizer. Energizers can be sent to 344 Kendall Rd, Blairsville, PA 15717.

Since the wildlife are more than likely jumping over your fence, they will not get shocked. You can also create a 2-D fence, which essentially is one strand a few feet in front of your fence. The wildlife are unable to judge the space between these fences, and, more than likely, will not test your fence. This should slow them down enough to try and find a better way over your fence.

A 1.2 joule energizer will power a little over a mile of fence. If your fence is longer than a mile, you will need a larger energizer. You can test your ground bed using your voltmeter. Simply touch the first ground rod with the voltmeter. If you are reading over 2,000 volts on your ground bed, you have a dead short on your fence line. Check out our video for further instructions on testing your ground bed and fence.

How many feet of fence are you powering? We recommend approximately 1 output joule per mile of fence. Your energizer may be too large for your fence, and you are experiencing induction. If your energizer is properly sized, the culprit could be a brace wire, or your hot lines are too closely spaced to your neutral wires.
