HotShock 600 Energizer
Discontinued — For medium to long fences (up to 3 miles). 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).
- 3 miles of 5-7 strand fence
- 28 rolls of 164' sheep/goat net
- 8-17 rolls of 164' PoultryNet. **All distances are dependent on amount of grass/weed load on the fence. Low-impedance circuitry produces a short, very strong electrical pulse designed to cope with moderate weed load.
- Requires 16 feet of ground rod in the ground
- 6 stored joules
- 5 released joules
- 1.94 joules output in moist soils
- 0.29 joules output in dry soils
- Draws 8 watts per hour
- 50 pulses per minute
- 4' cord
- 2 prong plug
- Connect insulated cable (stripped back 2-3" on ends) to the fence terminal on energizer, run the cable to the fence line and connect.
- Then run a second length of cable from the ground terminal (with ends stripped again) on the energizer to the ground rod.
- Secure to ground rod with a clamp.
- Plug the energizer directly into an outlet and test fence. Do not use an extension cord as it may cause a decrease in voltage and expose the unit to the elements.
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.
Start by measuring the voltage at the end of the fence line. If the voltage is below 3000V, follow these steps to determine if the problem is with the fence, or the energizer.
Test the energizer first!
- Turn off the energizer.
- Disconnect the wires going to the fence and ground stake/rod.
- Turn the energizer back on.
- Measure the voltage on the energizer between the two terminals (positive and negative) with a digital voltmeter or other high-voltage tester. Touch one end to “-“ (earth terminal) and the other end to “+” (fence terminal). The reading tells you how well the energizer is working without any other variables.
- If the tester reads below 5000V, then the energizer (or possibly the battery) is the problem. If the voltage is above 5000V, then the trouble lies with your fence.
If the fence is at fault:
- Conductors touching another wire, steel post or the soil
- Broken or damaged insulators

It is working well to keep my goats in. I bought a 3 month old buck for my herd that wasn't used to electric. After the first day he hasn't touched the fence.

A good fence charger to contain a small acreage. We probably should have bought the larger charger since we will have dry weather eventually; we shall see down the road. It works well and was easy to install.

I was very impressed with the Hot Shock 600, the goats only got close to it once, the spark it left on the goats nose was enough to keep them contained from the start. A very easy product to install. Thank you for your fine products.
