Question about Zareba Electric Fence 600 - 7,000 Volt Eight-Light Voltage Tester #RSVT8

Controller has no voltage output when connected to fence

I have a Zareba A100L1 electric fencer. When I test the voltage output at the controller I get approx 6,000 volts, when I test the voltage output at the runout wire to the fence, ( disconnected from the fence) I get approx 6,000 volts, when I connect the runout wire to the fence I get no voltage output, any idea's????

You have a dead short to ground somewhere along the fence circuit.Disconnect the leads again,and use a resistance checker to check resistance to ground.(Push a metal rod into the ground to connect one of your leads to,and connect the other lead to the fence.)One or the other fence circuit ends will have a lower resistance to ground.That fence end is closer to the short to ground.Follow that part of the circuit until the resistance to ground is as close to zero as you can find.(taking the ground rod with you as you go)Somewhere in that area you will find your short.

How long does it take to charge battery in solar fence charger?

1. A solar powered electric fence energizer usually contains a battery for energy storage. The solar panel collects the energy from the sun and charges the battery. Lead acid batteries, which are used in solar fence chargers, typically last around 3 years, or around 1,000 days of charging.

Fencer has not output...fence is dead.

Do you happen to have a volt-ohmmeter? They can be had fairly inexpensively at Harbor Freight, maybe Radio Shack. Switch to DC voltage range above the expected battery voltage, black lead on negative and red lead on positive.

What qualities make a person good at fencing?

There are several qualities that a fencer needs. At the top of my list in regards to athletics would be endurance and speed. Other merits that will come in handy are power, accuracy and flexibility. In terms of intellectual qualities I believe a successful fencer needs the ability to strategize. Lastly, a good fencer needs to stay focused at all times, practice relaxation techniques and perform stress management.

What's the outfit of a fencer?

A full Fencing clothing includes the jacket, pants, plastron and socks. Some companies manufacture Unitrans (combined jacket and pants). Inexpensive practice gear is fashioned of synthetics or heavy cotton, but competition clothing is required to pass an 800 N puncture test.

Does the sport of fencing hurts?

Not if done properly. A clean fencing attack hurts no more than a tap on the shoulder. The force of the blow is normally absorbed by the flex of the blade. Reckless and overly aggressive fencers can occasionally deliver painful blows, however. Fencing is a martial art, so you should expect minor bruises and welts every now and again. They are rarely intentional. The most painful blows tend to come from inexperienced fencers who have not yet acquired the feel of the weapon. You should do a proper warm-up and stretch before fencing in order to minimize the pulled muscles injuries.

Izip electric bike wont start

If the battery cells have been load tested and found OK then You need to trace the output voltage (using a voltmeter) from the battery to the controller to confirm you have voltage at the controller when the power is switched ON. If there is no voltage at the input to the controller then trace the voltage on components between the controller and battery, such as the switch and fuse and all the connectors.
If there is full battery voltage at the input to the controller then suspect the controller is faulty.

I have a Parmak Model DF-SP-LI. With a volt meter it reads 2.3 on the fence, but the performance meter is always reading beyond the green.

It depends on the type of fence tester. the common light-o-meters are a resistor ladder, calculated not only for voltage but current. the DF-SP-LI uses half the lowest current most are designed for. no if that is a digital or analog meter, then it would be time to check the out put from the charger with out the fencer connected. if you get the same reading it maybe defective unit. if you get a better reading then you will probable need to upgrade your ground system. insuffencient ground will show its self as a low out put on the fence but not on the charger.

Hi there:Test the MAP Sensor output voltage at the MAP Sensor connector terminal B (as marked on the sensor body). This is done with the ignition switch ON and the engine OFF. Output voltage should be 4-5 volts.

The voltage should drop to 1.5-2.1 volts with a hot, neutral idle speed condition.

Test engine controller (terminal 5) for the same voltage as described above to verify the wire harness condition. Repair as necessary.

Test MAP Sensor supply voltage at sensor connector (terminal C) with the ignition ON. The voltage should be approximately 5V (+/- 0.5V). 5V (+/- 0.5V) should also be at terminal 6 of the engine controller wire harness connector.

Test the MAP Sensor ground circuit at the sensor connector (terminal A) and the engine controller connector (terminal 4).

Test the MAP Sensor ground circuit at the engine controller connector between terminal 4 and terminal 11 with an ohmmeter. If the ohmmeter indicates an open circuit, inspect for a defective sensor ground connection. This connection is located on the right side of the cylinder block, at the oil dipstick tube mounting stud. If the ground connection is good, replace the engine controller. If terminal 4 has a short circuit to 12V, correct this condition before replacing the engine controller.
