Speedrite 1000 Energizer
Advanced low impedance electric fence energizer offers uncompromising performance and a no-nonsense approach to livestock control.
Dual purpose: can be plugged in or used with a 12V battery. This unit offers unique power settings with different pulse rates to help conserve battery power and make the fences safer for unknowing visitors.
Batteries sold separately.
- 2 mile of 3 strand cattle fence
- 3/4 mile of a 5-7 strand sheep fence
- 10 of the 164' sheep/goat nets
- 4-5 of the 164' poultry nets
- Requires a grounding system. Inadequate grounding is the most common failure in an electric fence system. We recommend 3 ft. of grounding for this energizer.
- To operate as a solar energizer, run the unit as a battery unit (DC) and attach a solar panel to charge the battery. (10-20 watt panel recommended.)
- 1.4 stored joules
- 1 released joules
- 0.87 joules in moist soils
- .35 joules in dry soils
- 110V plug-in adapter with a 6' cord and a 12V battery adapter
- Wiring harness to connect energizer to fence and energizer to ground rod
- Includes an on/off switch
- Draw from a 12V battery is 90 milliampere(mA) per hour when set on the 'fast pulse' setting and 53mA when set to the 'slow pulse' setting. With this energizer a 12V 100 ampere hour, deep cycle battery will last 28* days when set on the fast setting and 47* days when set on the low setting. *Assumes being drawn down to 40% between charges.
- Draws 1 watt per hour.
- Indicator lights show output voltage and battery condition.
- Has 4 pulse settings to adapt to various situations
- Slow setting-approximately 2.5 seconds between pulses. Use where unknowing visitors may accidentally touch the fence or where livestock/predator pressure is low. 25 pulses per minute.
- Fast-day and slow at night. Use when pressure is higher during the day than at night (diurnal livestock).
- Fast-night and slow during the day. Use for nocturnal livestock and predators or when visitors are more likely to be around.
- Fast setting-Pulse rate is approximately 1.5 seconds. Use when animal pressure is great and where no visitors may contact the fence. 40 pulses per minute.
- Versatile, can be used as a plug-in energizer or as a battery energizer.
- Adapts from one style to the other in a few seconds.
- Easily moved around.
- Quickly mounts to a wall or fence post.
- The decision is yours as to pulse rate and battery consumption based on your needs.
To use the energizer as a plug-in unit:The energizer 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.
- Connect an insulated cable (stripped back 1 - 2" on ends) to the fence terminal on energizer, run the cable to the fence line and connect, or use the positive part of the wiring harness.
- Then run a second length of cable from the ground terminal (with ends stripped again) on the energizer to the ground rod(s), or use the negative part of the wiring harness.
- Secure to ground rod(s) 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 use the energizer as a battery unit:
- Attach wiring harness to energizer.
- Attach the bare end of the wire with the red clip to the fence terminal of the energizer. Attach the red alligator clip to the fence.
- Attach the bare end of the wire with the green clip to the ground terminal of the energizer. Attach green alligator clip to the ground rod(s).
- Connect the energizer to the battery.
- Insert battery adapter into the energizer. Attach red alligator clip from the adapter to the red “+” terminal of the battery.
- Attach black alligator clip from the adapter to the black “–” terminal of the battery.
Unit indicator light should flash and a tic-tac sound will be heard. If the indicator light doesn't flash, then the unit/battery should be checked.
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
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.

We have some of the worst soil in the world to get a good ground in and this charger just doesn't care, it has a charge that will knock your socks off. We have 2 of them, one running goats and mesh and one running line for cows and horses and while we haven't had them all that long (2 weeks), we are super impressed with how easy they are, all the ways we can use them(one is on a battery, the other is on an electric cord) with many options and features. As long as these guys don't die of unexplained causes, you will probably always find these around our farm.

I have bought 3 of these Speedrite 1000 Energizer. I gave 2 of them to our grown children to use on their farms. I use mine on the electric netting so it doesn't drag down my perimeter fences. I really like being able to use it as AC or DC. All of the parts come with it so you don't have to buy extra parts. Very easy to hook-up. Works great with our horses, sheep, and chickens.

Having owned a "plug-in" Speedrite in the past with tremendous results, I knew the Speedrite 1000 was what I needed for my fence. I run two wires along my existing hogwire fence to keep my Anatolian in and others out. It is run off a battery with a solar panel to charge it. Works like a charm. A Speedrite packs a wallop.

I love these Speedrite energizers... I have order this, after using the 3000. Among being tough, easy to set up, self explanatory to use, having power options, they monitor the well being of your battery (i.e. so you don't kill it by taking it below 40%) and can be used in any set-up -- plugged into power mains, solar, and/or batteries! Can't beat all these.
Originally purchased a Patriot P5 to run a 100' poultry mesh fence but due to various factors it just could not create an effective voltage. The Speedrite 1000 had no problem running this fence plus a second 180' poultry mesh fence. The on/off multifunction switch is very handy and it runs off the same same solar panel that I set up for the P5.
