The Raptor 20 is the smallest in the range of Raptor energisers from Hotline. It will power up to 2km of fencing at around 3,000v so it's ideal for small paddocks and domestic fencing (it is not suitable for powering electric netting). The Raptor has a stand which also acts as an earth spike and makes this unit really easy to move around when used as a battery fencer for strip grazing.
Another really useful feature is the Fence Performance Monitor
. This is an LED display which flashes with coloured lights that rotate with every pulse and can be seen from a distance. The flashing lights tell you the status of your fence, green means everything is good and your fence has plenty of power. Blue means it's acceptable and if the display flashes red then the fence has very low voltage and needs attention. There is also a central LED which flashes red when the 12v battery needs recharging or when it's running on 6v battery backup.
Powering can be done in 3 ways. Mains Powered
When the transformer (included) is plugged into the side of the energiser the unit should be, like all mains energisers, located inside a building with lead out cable
(not included) running out to both the electric fence and the earth stake. 12v Battery
When running the Raptor from a 12v battery just plug the connection cables supplied into the side and attach to the battery terminals. 6v Battery
It can be powered from a 6v square battery which can be inserted into the underside of the energiser and will allow the energiser to run up to 10 weeks. When the fence is run from the mains and a 6v battery is inserted the 6v battery will kick in and power your fence if there is a power cut. Our Opinion
We love the performance indicator display that shows you how much power your fence has and you can see it's reassuring flash clearly from a distance. The battery indicator lets you know when to recharge your 12v battery and the 6v battery is really handy for back up power. The stand makes life so much easier by keeping it up off the ground if used in a field and also provides a perfectly adequate earth stake for this size of unit.
