Using a voltmeter for testing electric fence

Unfortunately you can’t use a regular volt meter for testing electric fence chargers, they’re just not designed for the high voltage (7Kv to 9Kv) pulse. You have to use an electric fence tester, preferably a digital one, to test any kind of fence charger or the fence itself. We recommend the Gallagher DVM3 for a tester. They work great and will work almost any brand of fencer from the very old to the very new, big and small.
