To obtain the maximum benefit from your Elephant Electric Fence for as many years as possible, it is important that you give the product the best possible operating conditions.
When the device is in operation it can run both indoors and outdoors, and has no problems withstanding difficult weather conditions with heavy precipitation and significant temperature fluctuations. This is because the “inbuilt” heating from the device’s modest power consumption is sufficient to keep the electronic components free of moisture.
When the device is not in operation it should be stored indoors under stable temperature conditions. You must therefore not allow your electric fence to hang outdoors for long periods without power, as moisture and condensation will act very quickly (particularly during the winter) to damage PCBs and electronic components, which will thus destroy the electric fence.
To give your electric fence extra protection against wind and weather, you must not cover the electric fence with, for example, a plastic bag. This will have the effect that the electric fence is unable to breathe. In many instances moisture will be created, with the consequence that the electric fence’s electronic components will be damaged in a very short time (2-6 months).
Battery fences and mobile fences that are connected to batteries (with an acid content) must be protected so that steam from the battery does not come into contact with the electronic components in the electric fence.
If an electric fence breaks down because of the above, the guarantee is rendered invalid.
