This is an abbreviation for “Outside Diameter”


This is an abbreviation for “Original Equipment Manufacture”.


This is something that sets the wire, rope, twine, or tape off the post a few inches.


This is a resistance that produces a potential difference of one volt when a current of one ampere is flowing through it.


This is a unit of resistance. Ohms are used to measure resistance to the flow of an electric current. A low ohm reading represents a heavy fence load, and a high ohms reading represents a light fence load.

Output Joule

This is what goes out on the fence line. Generally, you will lose 20-50% from stored to output joules.

Pulsed Charger

The Charge LED will flash very slowly (on 1/8th sec. off 1 3/8th sec). This occurs if the terminal voltage of the battery is lower than that which the Pulse charger considers safe to charge. In this mode the Pulse charger applies a very gentle charge to the battery to see if it can bring the terminal voltage up to a safe level. This mode will continue indefinitely until either the battery is removed or the terminal voltage rises sufficiently, at which point normal charge will automatically be engaged.

Reverse Hammer Action

This action breaks posts free.

Rotational Grazing

This is another term for managed and strip grazing. It is a system for livestock grazing, using internal temporary enclosures (within a boundary fence) to control the specific areas where the animals graze. This allows the vegetation in the previous enclosures to grow back.
