You have got to make sure there are no weeds or brush at all touching the hot wire. Nothing can touch it or it pulls the voltage level way down. Do a full inspection of line.

I have Parmak S.E.3 fence charger, it's send energy out into wire but not enough to shock cattle, the unit is around a 7 acre field with 2 lines, what could be the problem?


Grounding is very important for an electric fence, especially in dry soil. I normally drive 2 or 3 - 6 foot long ground rods 10 feet apart then join them all together and run that to the charger using double 14 gauge or 12 gauge copper wire. You can get the roda at Tractor Supply.

Hi, I have a 25 mile range Parmak solar pak 6 fence charger. When I test the lines it reads .02 and I noticed that the energizer unit itself is energized. I tested the unit and it reads between 3.8 to 4.6....


Any point you measure has to be compared to a reference. This can not be accomplished by just touching one spot....it must be compared to something. Do I make sense the way I explain this?
Hope this helps! Good luck

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.

theses symptoms would say that your circuit board has/is failing. in particular the 25tts 12 SCR. you can contact Parmak for either parts or service.

When I hook up the ground wire the meter shows not working but when I unhook it, it shows full power.


It sounds like to me that you have something shorting the "shock" output to ground. Check your fence to see if there are any plants, or other objects touching the "Hot" wire to the ground. You could also have a broken or cracked insulator that is causing the short circuit on the output.

I have see this happen before and its usually do to most moisture/rain getting in. ie use multi meter to varify solar charger putting out current/voltage. Odds are its not anymore. Rechargable batteries are notorius for not lasting but not in 2 months.

Need battery


We have one of these, it's great.

See these links:

http://www.parmakusa.com/Battery_Maint.htm

http://www.parmakusa.com/service.htm

I would try removing the battery and charging it with a proper low-amperage charger (1 amp). Your battery will either be 6 volt or 12 volt, just be sure the charger matches.

Also check the ground rod and all wiring connections.

Controller has no voltage output when connected to fence


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.
