With 7 stored joules, the Phoenix HLM700 is a cost effective, high power fence energiser for electric fences that have medium to heavy vegetation to deal with. For 2013, the HLM700 has been improved to significantly reduce power consumption by over 50%, to just 10W. As with the other mains powered Phoenix energisers, the HLM700 features a three colour ‘status’ bar graph, a menu driven LCD control and battery back-up facility. The LCD provides fingertip access to important fence information, displaying output volts, return volts, earth leakage volts and stored energy, the status of which can be easily used to drive alarms. All of the Phoenix energisers feature a drop down cover, which safely conceals the terminals and protects the user from unexpected shocks. Model: Phoenix HLM700 Mains Powered Energiser. Power: 7.0 stored joules. Maximum Recommended Length of Fence (Single Line): 45 kilometres Suitable for: All types of farm use and dealing with medium to heavy vegetation. Control: Menu driven with Large LCD display providing information on fence status. Visual: Front mounted LED Bar graph fence status indicator. Other Features: Battery back-up facility, lightning protection, user configurable alarms – internal sounder and external alarm connector, drop down terminal cover. Phoenix Energiser Operation – User Interface The energiser has an LCD display and two control push buttons – (SET and SELECT). The energisers set button switches the fence to standby (ON). While the fence is on the LCD display shows: The Fence Voltage in Kilovolts (at the start of the fence), the voltage of the reference earth in Kilovolts (an indication of the ground connection quality), the fence voltage at the end of the fence in Kilovolts – the return voltage in a closed loop and the stored power output to the fence in Joules. here is also a three colour, status bar graph, light display on the front of the Phoenix energiser that gives a ‘quick glance’ indication of how efficiently the electric fence is operating. Red Light – The fence line needs attention. Yellow Light – The energiser is coping with online vegetation ensuring the necessary voltage on the fence line. Green Light – Sufficient voltage is being delivered to the fence line. Fence Performance Monitoring As you have seen above, the Phoenix energisers measure and display the performance of the electric fence. This information can be used to activate alarms, in the event of a fence fault or high load condition (for example, excessive vegetation or continuous animal contact). The effectiveness of the fence depends on the fence voltage and the quality of earth connection through the ground stake. Phoenix Terminals To enable the Phoenix to ‘collect’ relevant information from the fence, the unit has four terminals. Earth – The ground stake or connection. Reference Earth – Reference Earth stake to monitor earth quality. Fence output – Energiser Output to the fence. Fence Return – Monitors voltage at the end of the fence. (Used when the fence is connected in a closed loop). This information is of course displayed on the LCD screen as above. Alarms The Phoenix HLM700 mains energiser has user configurable alarms that on purchase are set with factory defaults. User alarm preferences are stored in non-volatile memory; this means that your preferences are unaffected when the energiser is switched off or in the event of total power failure. Alarm outputs are relayed to an internal sounder and to an external alarm port enabling the fitting of a strobe or siren. The alarms are easily configured using the menu control and can reviewed via the menu control at any time without interrupting the operation of the fence. Alarms are deactivated automatically if the fence returns to a non alarm condition, or after a 20 minute period. Fence Voltage low… Preset able to 2.5KV, 3.5KV, 4.5KV or OFF. The alarm is activated if the voltage falls below the preset value for 5 pulses. This ensures that the alarm is not activated in the event of a short term animal contact, but will be activated if an animal becomes stuck in the fence, or a short circuit in the fence occurs. Fence breaks… Preset able to 2.5KV, 3.5KV, 4.5KV or OFF. The alarm is activated if the return voltage falls below the preset value for 5 fence pulses, indicating a break in the fence. (This alarm enabled when the fence is connected in a closed loop and should be set to OFF when the fence return is not connected). Reference Earth Voltage… Preset able to 0.25KV, 0.45KV, 0.65KV or OFF If the fence earth connection is broken or degrades, the reference earth voltage will increase, if the voltage is higher than the preset value for 5 fence pulses the alarm will activate. (This alarm is used when the reference earth is connected to the reference earth terminal). Battery back-up All Phoenix mains energisers have the facility to switch to battery back-up in the event of a power failure. Back-up power, supplied by a 12v leisure battery, is maintained by trickle charging from the energiser. When mains power is restored, the energiser will automatically revert to mains power. The alarm facility will also notify the user of low battery life. Lightning Protection An internal spark gap is fitted in the energiser in close proximity to the fence terminals that diverts high voltage to the earth. Internal circuitry is protected with transient voltage suppressors. Please refer to the section ‘Installation of Mains Energisers’ in our Guide to understanding modern electric fences for more information on connecting your energiser. Hotline Electric Fence Energisers are supplied with lead and 3 pin plug for connection to mains as standard.
