Hotline - Raptor 80 Electric Fence Energiser (6v/12v Battery or 230v Mains Operated)
The Hotline Raptor 80 electric fence energiser offers the highest level of flexibility, quality and ease of use.
In addition to a 12v external battery input and 230v mains adaptor input, the Raptor 80 will also operate from
an internally loaded 6v spring top (PJ996) battery. This is the standard capacity battery, commonly used in
domestic torches and is widely available in most supermarkets. This offers an easily accessible emergency
power source and can also operate as a reserve back up when charging your 12v battery. The Raptor 80 has
a maximum single line distance of 8km (or 2 poultry nets) and is ideal for smaller electric fencing applications
such as small paddocks, poultry pens, strip grazing etc. The Hotline Raptor 80 also features innovative three
colour rotating LED's which show how much effective voltage you have on the fence line, as well as important
information on the general health of your fence system - all at a glance. A central LED also flashes red when
your 12v battery is low, or when the energiser is running from the 6v internal battery. All of these features are
housed in a tough ABS case of unrivalled strength. It also comes with a heavy-duty galvanised steel stand.

Fence Performance Monitor:
The three colour rotating LED rotates with
every pulse, showing how much effective voltage you have on the fence
line. A central LED flashes red when your 12v
battery is low or when the energiser is running from the 6v internal
battery. If operating from the 230v
adaptor and have a 6v battery inserted, the LED will indicate that the
energiser is operating on battery back up.
Please Note: the output power will decrease in 6v mode which may result in the LED changing colour.
As with all aspects of an electric fence system, the energiser will
perform at its best on a well maintained fence system.
Earthing and Line Heights
Q: Does the fence need to be erected in a loop?
A: No, an electric fence operates as an open circuit which is completed when in contact
with the animal, it can be erected in a straight line or potentially in any configuration.
The key is to keep the the fence from contacting the ground and from anything that will
close the circuit other than the animal.
