Thunderbird Electric Fence Energisers


When you have invested time and money putting down posts and nailing that electric wire up all around the perimeter of your farm, or property, it is imperative that what you connect it all up to is going to charge with enough shocking power so that your efforts will not go unrewarded. There is nothing worse than realising that your fences are down as a result of animals that were not dissuaded from crossing it. A Thunderbird electric fence energiser is recognised as a top quality product and one that farmers and landowners everywhere turn to over and over again when they need to ensure that their fence will stand up to the test when it is put to them.

When there is a fault in your fence

But when it comes to electric fences there is one problem that trips even the best of us up from time to time, a fault that seemingly comes from out of the blue. In order to determine where it lies, the first thing you will need to do is examine the fence itself. Your voltmeter will come in handy in determining that there is sufficient power.


After that, there may be a break or a kink that is on the verge of splitting that needs to be spliced back together. Often overgrowing vegetation will reduce the voltage and put a strain on your energiser. Once the power is off, you should clear all of this away. You should also check that the fence is earthed properly. In some cases, the earth wire may be defective and this is where the problem lies.


Where your Thunderbird electric fence voltage is low or does not register it may be worth checking the circuit board in your energiser. However, for those who opt for solar-powered energisers, the problem may simply be a lack of sunlight, or that the panel has been placed in an area which just doesn’t get enough of the sun to maintain an effective charge.
