.Summary of BEE 7508 Electric Fence Controller (Evaluation Report - PDF File - 0.11 MB)

The BEE 7508 electric fence controller was very suitable for use over a wide range of fence conditions. Wire insulators were unnecessary for most fences while plant growth did not appreciably affect controller performance in most conditions.

Peak voltage output on a 5.4 km (3.3 mi) single wire fence varied from 3700 V for a well-insulated, grass-free, dry fence to 2495 V for an uninsulated, grass-grown, wet fence. Output was above the 2 000 V minimum guard voltage recommended for long-haired animals.

Peak voltage output on a 16 km (10 mi) single wire fence varied from 2450 V for a well-insulated, grass-free, dry fence to 1860 V for an uninsulated, grass-grown, wet fence.

Peak current flow through a cow touching well-insulated 5.4 and 16 km (3.3 and 10 mi) single wire fences varied from 5.0 to 3.7 A for a cow standing in water and from 0.86 to 0.60 A for a normally-grounded cow. The high peak current output indicated that the BEE 7508 generated quite an intense shock and was suitable for fairly long fences or poorly insulated fences.

Total charge delivered by the BEE 7508 varied from 0.06 to 0.33 mC. This was within accepted safety limits for cattle or humans.

The BEE 7508 was very suitable for cold weather use on feeding fences. Peak voltage output at -37C on a 5.4 km (3.3 mi) single wire fence was about 3255 V, only 12% lower than its output at room temperature.
