1 Purpose and scope

1.1 This Standard provides a uniform method for measuring output characteristics of electric fence controllers which relate to animal repelling capacity at specified loads. Currently this is limited to the capacitive discharge controller. Safety from electric shock and fire are not covered by this Standard. Output parameters measured by this Standard relate only to performance and are not to be construed as meeting safety requirements.
