Speedrite 3000 Energizer
Advanced low impedance electric fence energizer offers uncompromising performance and a no-nonsense approach to livestock control.
This unit offers unique power settings with different pulse rates to help conserve battery power and make the fences safer for unknowing visitors.
Plug unit into a 110V wall outlet, or connect to an external 12V battery. (Connectors included for both. See Specifications below.)
Batteries sold separately.
- 3 miles of 3 strand cattle fence
- 1-1/2 miles of a 5-7 strand sheep fence
- 18 of the 164' sheep/goat nets
- 9 of the 164' poultry nets
- Requires 9 ft of ground rod
- Can be used as a solar energizer by using a 20-60 watt solar panel
- Draw from a 12V battery is 295 milliampere(mA) per hour when set on the 'fast pulse' setting and 174 mA when set to the 'slow pulse' setting. With this energizer a 12V 100 ampere hour, deep cycle battery will last 8.5* days when set on the fast setting and 14* days when set on the low setting. *Assumes being drawn down to 40% between charges.
- 4.5 stored joules
- 3 released joules
- 2.8 joules in moist soils
- 0.45 joules in dry soils
- Comes with wiring harness to connect energizer to fence and energizer to ground rod.
- Includes an on/off switch.
- 12V DC draw: 295 mA/hr
- 110V draw is 3.7 watt per hour
- Indicator lights show output voltage and battery condition.
- Manufactured by Tru Test.
- Has 4 pulse settings to adapt to various situations:
- Fast setting (approximately 1.5 seconds between pulses). Use when animal pressure is great and where no visitors may contact the fence. 40 pulses per minute.
- 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 pulse at night. Slow pulse during the day. Use for nocturnal livestock and predators or when visitors are more likely to be around.
- Slow pulse at night. Fast pulse during the day. Use when pressure is higher during the day than at night (diurnal livestock).
- 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.

Energizer works very well as both a battery and plug in unit, until it doesn't. Mine has ceased to function after 10 months of ownership, neither battery nor plugging into wall results in function, simply a flashing error light. Hoping for an easy warranty return process

42 inch netting fence is running at 6000 volts with motorcycle battery, your 20 amp solar charger and two tee handle ground rods. We have a heavy coyote presence and have not lost any sheep/ lambs yet.

Wanted a solar fencer but could not find one with enough bite. This fencer had good reviews so I bought one. Have it permanently mounted in a shed with 110 volt and 2 permanent 6' ground rods. 10,000 volts plus on two strands of polywire each about 3/4 mile long.

I bought this to power Premier1 Electrostop fence for a herd of goats in heavy timber. Currently charging 1000 feet with no problem. All of the goats respect it. Very easy to use. I used the AC feature to train them at the house for 3 days under supervision, then DC at the remote location. I have never used electric fence before and it took only 10 minutes, including ground rods. I highly recommend. Also, excellent service from Premier1.

Ordering another 3000 to energize the high tensile fenced buck pen I've just completed building. I love the one I currently run on my net fencing. I rotatio graze with net fencing a half acre at a time of some THICK Florida pine scrub and this charger puts one heck of a "Come to Jesus" thump on the line...now, ask me how I know!!!
