HotShock 1000 (110v AC Plug-In) Energizer

A plug-in energizer that is used for long fences and/or heavy grass loads. A true low-impedance unit similar to the standard low-impedance units from New Zealand and US manufacturers. Recommended for sites where the grass remains green. Proven over years to be very reliable. Made by Horizont (who also make IntelliShock and Kube units for us).

Common Uses

A very powerful 110v electric fence energizer used to keep in cattle, sheep, goats, horses, poultry and guard dogs. Effective at protecting against coyotes, stray dogs, bear and fox. It also works to keep out deer, raccoons and rabbits from garden/orchard areas.



  • 15 stored joules
  • 8 released joules
  • 8 joules output in moist soils
  • 0.74 joules output in dry soils


  • Requires 30 feet of ground rod in the ground
  • Draws 20 watts per hour
  • 48 pulses per minute
  • 4' cord
  • 2 prong plug

Should Power...

  • 4 miles of 5-7 strand fence
  • 30-34 rolls of 164' sheep/goat net
  • 15-17 rolls of 164' PoultryNet.
  • All distances are dependent on amount of grass/weed load on the fence.


Low-impedance units work great with high weed/grass loads, but not as well with dry soils or poor conductors. Safe to use with all polywires, polyropes, tapes and electrified nets.


The HotShock 1000 can be mounted either inside or outside of a building, but not where there is risk of fire. The energizer must be mounted vertically. Protect the energizer from direct rainfall.

  1. Connect insulated cable (stripped back 1 - 2" on ends) to the fence terminal on energizer, run the cable to the fence line and connect.
  2. Then run a second length of cable from the ground terminal (with ends stripped again) on the energizer to the ground rods.
  3. Secure to ground rods with a clamp.
  4. Plug into outlet and test fence. Unit indicator light should flash and a tic-tac sound will be heard. If the indicator light doesn't flash, then the unit should be serviced.


  • Warning: High joule unit. Use with caution.
  • Make sure the energizer is unplugged before working on the fence or the energizer.


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

  1. Test the energizer first
  2. Turn off energizer.
  3. Disconnect ground wire and the fence wire.
  4. Turn energizer back on.
  5. With fence tester, put the ground probe (or clamp) to the ground terminal on the energizer and the metal loop (or positive clamp) at the top of the tester to the fence/positive terminal. The reading you get tells you how well the energizer is working without any other variables. If there is a very low voltage (under 4000v) or no voltage, then the energizer may have a problem. If the voltage is high (greater than 4000v) then the trouble lies with your fence. Most energizers put out between 5000v and 8000v when there is no load (i.e. no fence hooked up).
If the energizer is faulty and it is a 110 volt plug-in unit ...
  1. Check that the 110v outlet is "live" by using a plug-in drill or test light.
  2. If the test light works and the energizer does not, call Premier.

If the fence is at fault, then you must find the fault(s) and fix them. Here's how to start this process:
If you have a Fault Finder you can simply touch the fence with the Fault Finder at various points along the electric fence(s). The Fault Finder will tell you at each point which direction to go in to locate the problem. Move in that direction testing as you go and you will arrive at the problem.

If you lack a Fault Finder…

  1. Walk or drive along the fence looking for any point in which the energized wires touch the soil, a steel post or a steel wire. On HT wire fences, check the wires at braces to see if they are touching a hot wire. On netting, look for a hot wire touching the metal stake at the bottom of the plastic posts. Also look for damaged insulators.
  2. 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 turn off or disconnect the sections of fence. When the voltage on the remaining fence rises sharply, you've located the section(s) that's causing the problems.
  3. The alternative to (2.) is to begin at the fencer 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.


Our unique 2-Year Warranty:
If an energizer fails within 2 years from the purchase, Premier will replace the module/unit at our cost (unless the reason for its failure is customer abuse or neglect). Your credit card will be charged for the replacement but you will receive full credit when the failed item is back at Premier. Your only cost is shipping the failed item to us. If the original energizer is over 2 years old, we will repair and/or replace it, but you pay for the repair cost and freight.

Certainly not the cheapest fencer you can buy, but it may well be the best. We have horses, sheep and hogs. This fencer will handle an amazing amount of fence and earns the respect of every animal who touches it.
