  • SCOPE

    1 Scope

    1.1 These requirements cover electric-fence controllers to be employed on lighting or line circuits in accordance with the National Electrical Code, NFPA 70.

    1.2 These requirements cover electric-fence controllers used only for the control of animals.

    1.3 These requirements cover portable and permanently mounted electric-fence controllers with peak-discharge or sinusoidal-discharge output for indoor or outdoor use, including battery-operated controllers intended to operate from battery circuits of 42.4 V or less, line-operated controllers intended to operate from circuits of 125 V or less, combination controllers intended to operate from either a battery or a line circuit, and photovoltaic module battery operated controllers.

    1.4 These requirements do not cover electric-fence controllers for the continuous (uninterrupted) current type or intermediate equipment, such as a converter, a rectifier, or the like, that is sometimes used between the primary source of supply and an electric-fence controller and that is investigated only as part of a complete controller.

    1.5 These requirements do not cover electric-fence controllers for use with electrified security fences.
