AKO Fencing 2022

17 Choosing your electric fence unit 230 V power energisers – the FIRST CHOICE if a mains socket is available. These units have an unlimited protection period. They are available in all of the necessary power classes and are they best means of delivering the energy required (0.5 Joule up to 14.5 Joule output) on long fences or fences with vegetation, or for very robust animals. The higher energies of course do not harm the animals. All fence devices comply with applicable safety standards. If mobile use is intended, e.g. at tournaments, on trail or distance rides or simply on frequently changing pastures where there is no 230 Volt power supply available, you must resort to a battery-powered unit. For fences with heavier vegetative growth, 9 Volt compact solar units are inadequate and 12 Volt units must be used. 12 V battery-powered units – strong performance even on fences with heavier vegetation. 12 V battery units are ideal for very robust animals, long fences and/or fences with vegetation if no 230 V connection is available. The discharge energy is comparable to that of power energisers (output approx. 0.5 to 5 joules). Rechargeable 12 V wet batteries are used as the power source, which must be recharged every 2 – 4 weeks or so depending on the type of device, power requirements and battery type. Solar modules, which convert solar energy into electricity and therefore constantly top up the 12 V battery, are a good add-on. 12/230 V DUO units – maximum flexibility combined with powerful output energies! Units of this type combine the unlimited security time of the 230 V units with the mobility of powerful 12 V units. A 12 V cable and 230 V adapter are included. 9 V dry battery units – the ideal units for smaller fences and paddocks! 9 V battery units are suitable for shorter fence lengths without vegetation. They are highly mobile and significantly lighter than 12 V units. The 9 V battery runs for a few months and can even cover an entire pasture season depending on the operating time, battery type and size (expressed in Ah – the more Ah (ampere hours), the longer it runs for). Once discharged, it cannot be recharged. 9 V units (even if these can also be operated with 12 V batteries) are weaker than 12 V units. 9 V units in this instance typically deliver approx. 0.15 to 0.35 joules. High-impact 9 V units can deliver up to 0.55 joules. Compact solar units Compact solar units from the CLASSIC range – similar to 9 volt devices for smaller fences without vegetative growth, or: AKO SunPOWER from the EXPERT range = extremely powerful, mobile compact solar units. Mono-crystalline solar modules in combination with our high-performance solar fence devices are able to supply power to fences which are many kilometres in length. Even after a whole week without direct sunlight, these fence devices still have sufficient power to supply your fence with sufficient current. These special devices are outstandingly suited for fencing relatively large areas. Sufficient voltage is supplied everywhere along the fence, without the requirement for a socket anywhere nearby! The 12 volt AGM battery is integrated, and is constantly charged via the solar module built into the housing. If the battery has to be topped up, it can be recharged using the 230 volt mains adapter supplied.
