The Hotline Shrike is a compact 3v battery powered electric fence energiser and is ideal for equestrian use,
paddock fencing or strip grazing up to 800m. The Shrike has a capacity of 0.04 stored joules and runs off two
1.5v D-Cell batteries (included) which will last approximately 6 weeks when running 24 hours a day (in ideal
conditions). It can also be powered by a 12v external battery (not included) to give a higher output voltage.
The Shrike has a cleverly designed shape which means that it can be placed on the electric fence line or
attached to a fence post. It can even be hung on an earth stake (in effect using the earth stake as a stand).
The Hotline Shrike also has an On/Off switch plus an LED pulse indicator to indicate that the unit is working.
*Includes 3 year warranty* Made in the UK.

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.
