    I would like to make an electric fence energiser. I am aware of all the laws pertaining to the electric fences in Zimbabwe.
    If my understanding is correct a energiser consists of an oscillator which induces a high voltage, with very little current in an HT transformer. This is then pulsed down the fence.
    The system is a closed loop which if cut activates an alarm, or if shorted to earth activates an alarm.
    A battery,12 Volt, runs the system. So would need a charger.
    The questions in this are.
    1. Is this an accurate assumption of how an electric fence energiser works.
    2. Does anyone have a circuit diagram or circuit diagrams of either a completed electric fence energiser or the individual circuits that could be used to make up an electric fence energiser.
    Many thanks

    Your assumptions sound reasonable. It might be far safer to buy a fence charger.
