The energiser is one of the core components of an effective electric security fence. Design and quality of electric fence energisers is of paramount importance. Agricultural energisers for livestock electric fencing cannot compare to specially designed, high security energisers which offer a superior level of performance and reliability.
How Our Electric Fence Energisers Work
Here at Advanced Perimeter Systems we manufacture definitive high security energisers for installation into our Electro-Fence™ system. Such is our commitment to ensuring premium quality that each energiser is actually over-rated for the task it is required to perform. The same applies to the electric fence controllers we produce. Read more about our system quality here.
Using Magnetic Technology, Electro-Fence™ energisers are extremely efficient. They are able to maintain a higher voltage on the fence under a wider range of operating conditions. This makes them ideal for high security electric fencing, whether industrial, commercial or military.
An optimised output pulse is produced via correct matching of transformer pulse density to high performance inductive components. In addition, by using high efficiency, low loss insulators the energisers deliver enhanced performance.
We offer three options of electric fence energiser:
- Magnetic technology
- Dual independent
- Bipolar output
We incorporate these three options of fence energiser into our range of electric fence controllers (currently 10 Electro-Fence™ models) as follows:
- All 10 models of our electric fence controller carry magnetic technology energisers
- 3 models of our electric fence controller also carry dual independent energisers
- 2 models of our electric fence controller also carry bipolar output energisers
These options are the result of many years’ research, development and testing and enable us to offer our clients a high quality electric fence system which will suit their perimeter security requirements.
Electro-Fence™ Bipolar Energisers Prove Their Worth
In one of the most interesting security case studies of recent years we were asked to provide a retrofit solution to an existing prison electric fence (not originally supplied by us) which protected the perimeter of a US State Department of Corrections prison. The original electric fence energisers were failing and replacement parts were not available.
We had to provide bipolar energisers which would integrate easily with the existing wire array configuration and communication protocol. The energisers also had to fit readily into the existing field boxes.
The Electro-Fence™ bipolar energisers that we supplied not only fulfilled the site’s requirement but they actually exceeded the performance specification in every aspect including output voltage, resistance to voltage spikes and reporting and control capabilities.
The true worth of the quality of our energisers can be measured in the fact that the client installed identical Electro-Fence™ systems with bipolar energisers to protect the perimeter of two more prisons. Follow the link to read the full prison electric fence case study.
NOTE: In 2012, there were more APS high security non-lethal electric fence energisers installed in the United States than from all other competitors combined.
