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.

First one I've ever owned. However I used dozens of these over my 5 years at Polyface Farm. They work flawlessly year after year! Extremely durable!

I purchased this as my 2nd energizer for a 2nd mobile chicken coup/mesh net fence. The original was a Stafix X1 and the Speedrite 1000 appears to be an OEM'd version of the Stafix, but for less money (about $30 when shipping is taken into account). Both units are rock solid and I couldn't ask for more functionality. It drives the mesh net fence easily at 8kv+ even when there are a number of spots it is in contact with wet grass. I will be purchasing the Speedrite's exclusively in the future, presuming they remain less costly than the Stafix.

The energizer works as advertised. I run 3 100feet electric fence sections to keep my sheep eating around the house. I have it running directly from a garage outlet, no battery, and it keeps the sheep inside and away from the fence. It works every time. I also bought 3 sections of a 100ft electric fence for sheep which I will review separately.

This energizer is a great value, and has all the leads to connect it to the fence, ground and power source. I love that it is ac/dc so you can use it multiple ways. I currently have two and will be buying more in the future.

I bought several items from this seller; all were great! Everything was as advertised. Fast shipping, and they kept me informed when it was expected to arrive.
