You can run an offset wire on the inside or outside of the panel, depending on your situation. Give our sales team a call at 1-800-KENCOVE, and we can help you design a safe and effective fence using cattle panels, offset wires, and an energizer.

Have you checked out our electric nets? They are the only American-made electric nets on the market, and they are easy to install, take down, and store, which makes them the perfect protection for gardens! The type of critters you have would determine the best net for the situation. The standard net that we would recommend is our NPCW net. This net is 164’ long and 48” tall with 14 horizontal lines and 3 ½” vertical line spacing. The NPCW can make a 40’ x 40’ square or any shape needed to meet your needs. Multiple nets can be connected if needed to create the perfect protection for your garden. Our nets come with 13 double-spiked step-in posts that are already built into the net, making installation quick and easy.
I know you mentioned hard soil. Is your soil also dry? If so, you may want to invest in a positive/negative net. We would recommend the NPX. These nets do not require a ground rod. If you do decide on the NPCW, we have a Quick-Ground Rod (item code: MGQ), which is sufficient grounding for a net. The MGQ is easy to install and remove. For your energizer, we recommend the Kencove .50-Joule Solar Energizer (item code: EKS.5H). If you have the option for AC power, we would recommend the Kencove 1-Joule AC Energizer (item code: EK1H). Feel free to give our sales team a call at 1-800-KENCOVE with any additional questions.

My raised beds are 4′ x’ 6′ in width and length. I have raised beds because the soil is so hard. I’m not sure if I can drive 6-8 feet of grounding copper rod into the soil. This stuff is totally new to me. Any help with charger size and fencing would be appreciated. Regards, Al

The “power pushing” the voltage is stronger on larger energizers. You would feel a difference between say a 9 joule vs a 3 joule energizer. However the difference between a .5 joule and a .3 joule would be so small you wouldn’t be able to tell. I wouldn’t be worried about the .5 joule harming your pets. As long as your energizer is low-impedance the pain felt is causing a discomfort rather than harm to your pet.

The fence it protects is only 400′. I keep both adult dogs and small puppies in the enclosure and the single wire prevents digging under the dog fence. I feel like the .5 joule controller is giving too high an output. Would a .2 joule output controller reduce the felt shock? Am I looking at the right thing to reduce the felt shock?
Thanks.

Your energizer is plenty big enough to power your fence. Make sure you keep weeds and brush off your fence line, this will reduce voltage leaking. Make sure you have a good ground bed. We recommend a 3′ ground rod for every joule. Let us know if you have any more questions. We would love to see photos of your hive and set up!

You may want to replace the frayed pieces of your fence. You are going to start leaking voltage in the frayed areas.
