Benefits
  • Assembled in house at Premier. We build each unit and test it before it goes out our door. This allows us to know that we are sending you a unit that works.
  • Half the cost per joule than competitors
  • Can be laid flat on the ground during summer months to make them less visible to the public.
  • To catch the sun's power in winter, simply lean it against a post. If you live in low-sun areas, do this in the late fall and early winter also.
  • All metal case; very strong and rugged.
  • Won't rust. It's aluminum and stainless steel.
  • Light brown exterior reduces its visibility to vandals and reduces heat buildup inside the case.
  • All metal clamps for lid.

 


How to Use
Attach the energizer unit to the battery and it is ready to use. Drive in the ground rod. Lay it on the ground or against a post. Then attach the earth clip to the ground rod and the fence clip to the fence. Switch it on (when switching on, make sure the button is pressed all the way in).

 

Winter Use

If you're not using your PRS unit during the winter follow these tips to preserve battery life:

  • Turn off the unit. Disconnecting the unit from the fence is not sufficient, the unit will still pulse unless it is turned off.
  • Clean off the solar panel. Dust and debris may have accumulated during use and as a result prevents the panel from maximum electrical production.
  • Before the unit goes into storage, fully charge the unit. This will allow the battery to be topped off. Batteries that are 50% or less charged may become damaged in freezing temperatures.
  • If possible, place the unit in a sunny area, this will allow the solar panel to continuously top-off the battery. The battery will lose charge over time even if the unit is disconnected from the fence and turned off.
  •  

    If you're planning on using your PRS unit during the winter months, follow these helpful hints:

  • Face the energizer due South, this will allow the panel to receive the maximum amount of light possible during the low-light days of winter.
  • Instead of laying the unit on its back, stand up or prop up the unit (facing South) to allow it to receive as much light as possible.
  • Hang the unit up (facing South), secure the top and base to prevent the unit from moving. This will keep the unit out of most snow drifts and allow accumulated snow to fall off.
  • If the unit is not to be hung up, clear all debris off the panel, this includes grass clippings, dust (especially on gravel roads), leaves and snow. Do not place in shady areas, this will reduce light intake.

    To use light tester WITHOUT ground probe

    For Fence:
    1. Touch the top of the tester to the electrified fence you wish to test.
    2. Push the button (if applicable).
    3. The tester will light up according to the voltage at that location on the fence.
    For Energizer:
    1. Turn off energizer.
    2. Disconnect ground wire and fence wire from energizer.
    3. Turn on energizer.
    4. Touch the top of the tester onto the top of the fence terminal on the energizer.
    5. Push the button (if applicable).
    6. The tester should light up to 6000 volts or more.

     

     

    To use light tester WITH ground probe

    For Fence:
    1. Insert the probe of the tester into the soil.
    2. Remove your hand from the metal portion of the probe (to avoid a shock).
    3. To get a voltage reading, touch the metal clip (on the top of the tester) to the electrified fence you wish to test.
    4. The tester will light up according to the voltage at that location on the fence.
    5. Remove the tester from the fence and the probe from the soil. Do not remove the probe by pulling the insulated wire.
    For Energizer:
    1. Turn off energizer.
    2. Disconnect ground wire and fence wire from energizer.
    3. Turn on energizer.
    4. Touch probe from tester to ground terminal on energizer (be sure to hold onto the insulated wire and not the metal probe!)
    5. At same time touch the fence hook on tester to fence terminal on energizer.
    6. The tester should light up to 6000 volts or more.

     


    Precautions
    • Make sure the power is turned off before working on the fence or the energizer.
    • Make sure the fence line is clear of grass and debris that may lower the fence’s voltage.
    • Ensure the solar panel is facing due south and avoid placing the unit where it may be covered by shadows from trees, bushes or tall grass.
    • Regularly remove all debris from the solar panel.
    • Batteries that are less than 40% charged may become damaged. Batteries MUST remain fully charged in freezing conditions.

     

     

    To Reduce Risk & Liability

    • Never place your head or upper spine near an electrified wire. Accidental head or neck contact can occur when pushing a voltage probe into the soil. Be careful when doing so to avoid head-to-wire contact!
    • Never attempt to step over or climb through an energized fence of any kind.
    • Never encourage anyone to touch an electric fence.

     


    Troubleshooting

    To determine if the fault is with the fence or the energizer…

    1. Turn off energizer.
    2. Disconnect ground wire and the fence wire.
    3. Turn energizer back on.
    4. Using a fence tester, determine the output voltage of the energizer. If the voltage is below 4000V, then the energizer may have a problem. If the voltage is above 4000V, then the trouble lies with your fence or ground system.

     

     

    If the energizer is faulty…

    1. Test the battery with a Digital Battery Meter or other multi-meter.
    2. If the meter reading is greater than 12.5 volts, then check the terminal connections to ensure they are clean from corrosion and fastened tightly.
    3. If the meter reading is less than 12.5 volts, then use the included 110V power supply to recharge your battery. See instruction manual for details.
    4. Ensure the ground system (rods/stakes) is installed and connected correctly according to the instructions for this unit.
    5. If you continue to experience problems, please call us at 800-282-6631.

     

     

    If the fence is at fault…

    1. Walk or drive along the fence looking for any point in which the energized wires touch the soil, a steel post, a steel wire or anything conductive.
    2. Look for damaged insulators.
    3. With electric netting, the problem can often be traced to excessive weed load. Starting at the fence charger, measure the voltage as you walk along the fence. If you find a gradual decline in voltage, then you may need to clean away the grass or other debris from the lower strands. If the voltage drop is more rapid, then look for a hot wire touching the metal stake at the bottom of the plastic posts.
    4. If the fence can be separated into several parts (by switches or by disconnecting parts of it), you can locate the problem by beginning at the far end and then progressively turning off or disconnecting sections of fence. When the voltage on the remaining fence rises sharply, you've located the section(s) causing the problem.
    5. The alternative is to begin at the energizer and progressively turn on sections of the fence. When the voltage suddenly drops you can assume that the problem is in the section most recently connected.
    6. If you continue to experience problems, please call us at 800-282-6631.
