Do you mean the shock feels weak when you touch it? This is caused by your lack of ground. One of two things could be causing this. First, your ground is dry and there is little water in the soil. Or you are insulating yourself, causing the lack of shock. Moistening the soil in your ground bed may help. But at the end of the day, if you are reading over 8,000 volts, and your animals are respecting it, your fence is in good shape!

Is it possible that I measured high voltage on a line of an electric fence (8800 V) with a certificate electronic voltmeter but the shock is weak .
The energizer is appropiate for the lenght of the fence
(7 J for 1 mile fence ) .
Could it be a matter of Intensity (Ampers) and what is the source of the loss ?

Are both energizers giving you the strange change in voltages? If so, this may be due to a heavy dew on your fence line, creating a drop in your voltage. You can try adding additional ground rods, or checking the integrity of your insulators. What type of fence posts are you using? If you are using metal t-posts, I would suspect the drop in voltage is due to induction through your posts. What type of fencing are you using? Is it wire or a poly product? For more in-depth troubleshooting, please give our product specialists a call at 1-800-KENCOVE.

We want to market our products as honestly as possible, that is why we have it listed as 0.5 joules.

We have 2 separate fields in separate locations. One field has a plug in parmak box and one has solar parmak 12 volt 3 joules box. It seems that the volts jump around threw out the day. In the morning and evenings they go down during the day they go up. Is that normal? For example, yesterday at 3pm my solar box put off 8000 volts on both strands of turbo wire. Tonight at 8pm it put off 3000… any insight? Thanks

If you can test your voltage on your fence energizer you should see anywhere from 6,000-10,000+ output volts depending on the energizer model. If you are not reading any output volts on your energizer, it should be looked at. We repair all types of energizers here in Blairsville, PA. Simply send in your energizer to 344 Kendall Rd, Blairsville, PA 15717. You will need to include your name, address, and phone number in the box with your energizer.
