IP Energizer® featured in Farming Ahead

JVA IP Energizer Farming Ahead November

JVA is excited to announce that our IP Energizer® has been featured in the November issue of Kondinin Group's Farming Ahead.

The article discusses the technology involved in the IP Energizer, how to set it up and how to put it to use as well as a quick comparison to similar products on the market.

"We ran the IP Energizer for several weeks on an extensive electric fence system, previously powered by a Gallagher 1800i unit. With 16 joules of output energy, the MB16 is no slouch and handled the task with ease." - Josh Giumelli, Farming Ahead

"We think the value of the MB16 is obvious when compared with similar energisers with SMS and fence monitoring packages included." - Josh Giumelli, Farming Ahead

Customer Testimonial on JVA's Smart Bobbin

G’day,

I find the little smart bobbin is great because it means an extra or new insulator can be put into an existing electric fence, our main boundary fence is electrified with a single steel wire standing off the main old wire fence.As our main fences are all very old we go through from time to time replacing posts and straining wires, we can slip one of these smart bobbins onto the electric wire, put a cut piece of 10 gauge wire around the bobbin and fasten to an upper and lower wire on the existing fence making a perfect new stand-off insulator. They can of course also be used when making a complete new fence or when running a new wire, the bobbin and it’s mounting wire can be pre assembled, fitted to the fence and the new electric wire run through it as with the expensive porcelain stand-off insulators, or the new wire can be put in place strained up and the smart bobbin clipped onto the wire and fitted up the same as described above to an old existing fence.

These little smart bobbin insulators are a fabulous idea, I must order some more - Regards, Max Scholefield

Electric Fence Tips and Tricks featuring JVA Fault Finder

All electric fences require maintenance, if the live wires become shorted or cut, the voltage on part or all of the system can fall below that required to be an effective barrier. So why not make locating faults easier with JVA’s Fault Finder. It’s easy as 1, 2, 3!

  1. Starting at the beginning of the fence, a fault is indicated. The arrow points in the direction of the fault.

  2. Follow the fence in the direction that the Fault Finder indicates. At each intersection, check readings in each direction.

  3. Keep following the direction arrow until you find the fault.

Fault Finders can be purchased from our ebay store.

Our Tough Mudder Experience


JVA Tough Mudder

After many months of preparation, the big event has come and gone. Together we were able to conquer fears and push through all 20km until we reached the end. Tired, hungry, and covered in mud we were faced with one final challenge. This challenge was the reason we were all here, Pakton and JVA together, to test the strength of the energisers ourselves. We rallied together and ran through. Some of us lost our shoes in the mud, others fell over from zaps to the neck, but each of us managed to push through with shouts of encouragement from the crowd and our teammates.

Tough Mudder was quite an experience, getting shocked a more unique experience. We can say for sure that those energisers deliver quite a shock! Electric shocks aside, the experience was one of camaraderie, mental grit, and pushing physical limits. Above all, we  had a great time and now have a great memory to share.

JVA Energisers Aid in Feral Dog Protection Rural QLD

Many farmers are struggling with the tough task of protecting their livelihood from feral animals such as the dingo. Not only are they spending thousands on keeping their animals well fed and watered but the added responsibility and cost to maintain a fence is an extra burden.

This is where we say NO MORE!  Pared with the revolutionary invention by Gary Briggs of Dingo Fencing Machine and Dingo Australia, John Ford of 'Dreamland' Mungallalla can rest easy at night assured his sheep are safe.

The Gary Briggs designed monitored electric exlusion fence incorporates JVA's MB12 Electric Fence Energiser and ZM1 Electric Fence Monitoring System at 'Dreamland'. The system can be turned on and off by mobile phone SMS and the monitor also notifies by SMS if there is a fault on the fence. This innovative technology allows John to check his fence from his phone.

JVA is proud to be part of the solution to the problem of feral animals and grazing. To find out more about 'Dreamland' fence please click here


Can the Shock from Tough Mudder Kill You?

With Tough Mudder only one week away excitement is building and we are closer than ever to facing our fears.

Electroshock Therapy, the final obstacle, is one that causes the most apprehension in participants. This obstacle claims to deliver 10,000 volts to anyone daring enough to face it. Now, 10,000 volts seems like a lot. As we are so close to facing Electroshock Therapy ourselves, it had some people wondering if this voltage is enough to harm you or even worse, kill you.

Although it is possible for 10,000 volts to be life threatening, the danger of voltage is influenced by several factors. The most important of these being the amount of energy (measure in amps) behind the electric current, frequency of the current, amount of time the shock lasts, and the area on the body the shock occurs.

We also have to take into consideration how humans experience an electric shock. Humans can feel one milliamp (one-one thousandth of an amp) of electric shock. For reference, 10 milliamps is when you start to feel pain, 15 milliamps you begin to lose muscle control, and 50 is generally when you are at risk of death.

The shocks experienced in Tough Mudder’s Electroshock Therapy only last a few millionths of a second, giving off less than four milliamps. This amount isn’t even enough to cause pain, let alone death. However, this is just from one wire and we will be hit by multiple wires at once while also being wet from previous obstacles. Although this makes Electroshock Therapy slightly more terrifying, it is still not enough to cause any serious harm.

Anyone Can Do This


Tough Mudder Official Supplier

Tough Mudder isn’t only for fit people. In fact, anyone can do it. This may be difficult to believe considering many of the obstacles involve physical strength but it’s important to keep in mind that Tough Mudder is not a race, it’s a challenge.

Many people have a preconceived notion of what they are capable of and what their boundaries are. You may often hear phrases or even said them yourself like, “I could never do that,” or “That looks too hard for me.” Tough Mudder challenges us to break through this mentality and realize that our capabilities go beyond what we previously thought.

Often in life we hold ourselves back. We allow the boundaries we place on ourselves to keep us from achieving what we want most. This boundary breaking mentality isn’t just applied to physical fitness accomplishments but relates to other aspects such as our career, hobbies, and even social life. We gain nothing by holding ourselves back but by trying new things we can learn and grow.Read More

This is what the Tough Mudder challenge is really about; proving to yourself that you can do something you never thought you were capable of. Whether you are young, old, physically fit, trying to live healthier, or you just want to prove you can do this, Tough Mudder is for everyone. The best part is that you are not alone. You will be surrounded by people facing the same challenges you are, willing to help you conquer your fears and tear down your boundaries.  

 

 

 

Tough Mudder Training and Company Health

With the challenge of the Tough Mudder obstacle course looming ahead, we will be preparing to take on extreme physical challenges. To do this, we will be doing some serious training!

This training will include improving endurance for running between obstacles and improving total body strength needed for climbing, crawling, pulling, and pushing our way through obstacles.

We’re taking these steps not only because we have to prepare for the physical challenges ahead, but it also promotes overall health and well being. Company health and well being is important as healthy employees means greater productivity and participation in the workplace. This also means less sick days and reduced likelihood of leave due to disability and absenteeism caused by lifestyle related diseases!

Improved employee health and well being means a healthier and happier business all around (not just increased performance!). Tough Mudder is the perfect motivation to get everyone up and moving, and working towards a healthier self and healthier workplace.

JVA Takes on Tough Mudder


JVA Tough Mudder

JVA has teamed up with its manufacturer, Pakton Technologies, for the biggest event this year, the Tough Mudder obstacle course! This obstacle course will not only be a physical challenge, but a mental challenge as well, bringing JVA and Pakton closer together.

Working as a team, we will face challenges such as arctic plunges, crawling through mud and small dark spaces, swinging from ropes, climbing steep and slippery obstacles, and of course taking a taste of our own medicine by running through a field of dangling wires, delivering 10,000 volts. That’s right, we will be testing out the quality of our energisers ourselves!

However, there is more to Tough Mudder than running through an obstacle course. It is about joining together and providing support for teammates to overcome the obstacles, no one is in this alone. By working through challenges together, we can overcome fears and physical challenges we never thought were possible.

Mass manufacturing ... from a garden shed?

Almost 11000 kilometers away is a small, insignificant looking garden shed - inside however is the birthplace of the JVA Electric Fence Light. Sold all round the world, these fence lights are one of the most sold JVA items - so we went to see how it is done.

A small team of family and friends produce thousands of Fence lights per month in a shed that only comfortably fits one person. It is a slow, almost meditative process and the people who take part all seem to do it on an evening, day off or weekend.

The production is methodical and exact. The resin is weighed precisely, the pour is slow and steady - new designs are even tested in the swimming pool for two weeks to make sure that they are fully waterproof! Trust me it is amazing to watch! Buy yours now.

Voltage on the Earth - what is happening?


Question

Have you ever installed an Electric Fence and found that you have Voltage on the Earth and thought "that cannot be right!"

We recently got a call from someone who thought that their Electric Fence Energiser must be faulty because it has a high Voltage on the Earth terminal. As a matter of fact, this is never the Energisers fault.

A high Voltage on the Electric Fence Energisers Earth is caused by two things - an insufficient earthing system combined with a bad short on the fence.

There are two steps to overcome this problem. 1) Improve your Earth by adding more earth rods. 2) Find and fix the short. We can help with the later: use a Fault Finder it will lead you directly to the short.

JVA Security Electric Fencing

So, please join us in wishing Pakton Technologies a very Happy 20th Birthday!

Securing Your Security Keypad

LCD Keypad 

If you have ever wanted to know when your JVA Security Keypad had been removed from the wall, you can now be alerted immediately. The Security Keypad comes equipped with a wall tamper switch that you can wire into your Energiser's Gate Input (only if you are not using it for a Gate or for switching the Power Level). When the keypad is fitted to the wall, a small screw in the wall is enough to press this switch down. This means that when the Keypad comes off the wall, the switch will be opened and the Energiser will identify this change.

Finally, you must use your Keypad to configure the Energiser in order to detect this change. Ensure that the Gate Input is configured for the Gate Function (Programming Option 12) and set the Gate Delay (Option 13) to zero. When this is completed, the Energiser will immediately indicate a Gate Alarm if the Keypad is knocked off the wall. Simple really.

 Current, Energy, Power and Voltage - what are they?


Question

The best way to understand Current, Energy, Power and Voltage is to think of it as a hose full of water.

Your Voltage is the pressure coming from the tap - when you turn the tap on more, there is a greater pressure in the hose and more voltage.

The amount of water coming out of the tap is the flow of Current. The more water coming through the hose - the more current there is. So, if there is a leak in the system (fault) then the current flow increases, reducing the pressure (Voltage)

Energy (Joules) is the strength of the pulse that puts the voltage and current on the fence. A garden pump increases the force over a standard drip feed. Thus a higher stored energy can deliver more power to the fence.

Finally, Power is the amount of Energy used per second.

Electric Fences are safe... but hurt!

JVA is often asked whether our Electric Fence Energisers are safe and just how effective are they?

As you can see in this video, even our smallest Agricultural Energiser packs quite a punch. It is however, totally safe.

How Good are the JVA Fault Finders?

Fault Finder

The JVA Fault Finder is designed by Pakton Technologies and is quite simply their award winning 'Electric Fence Power Probe' in a black case.

Invented in 1991 by Pakton Technologies founder Paul Thompson, the Power Probe has won awards including 1st Prize at the Toowoomba AG Show in the Queensland Country Life's Farm Inventor of the Year. Since then the Power Probe has been upgraded twice and is now a fully digital unit which has won awards including the Kondinin Group Award of Excellence.

JVA's Fault Finders are internationally renown and extremely popular units. Having never received a complaint about the unit we can say they are not good - they are great!

Fault Finders can be purchased from our eBay store.

Securing Poppies

Securing Poppies

Thanks to recent State legislation changes Poppy farms are now popping up outside of Tasmania. Due to the dangerous nature of their crops, Poppy farms are required to have a monitored electric fence.

JVA Technologies was keen to get on board when one of only three companies licensed to produce narcotic raw material in Australia got in touch to discuss Security options.

JVA's ability to offer a comprehensive Z Range Security System with real-time reporting meant that local approval was quickly obtained and installation will be underway shortly.

We wish the farmers success in their new venture and look forward to working with the producers again in the near future to fulfill their Electric Fencing needs.

How do you use the JVA Fault Finder?

Fault Finder

The JVA Fault Finder only requires one touch of the live wire to provide Voltage and Current. The peak voltage will be displayed on the left of the screen in kilo volts and the current will be displayed on the right.

Simply, the Fault Finder does not require a connection to earth or two pulses on the fence to give a reading - simply press the Power (PRESS) button and touch the metal connection at the front of the Fault Finder onto the fence then check the readings. Should there be a current flow (fault) on the fence then a Fault Direction Arrow will light and show the direction (either left or right) to the fault.

More informatio can be found here.

Fault Finders can be purchased from our eBay store.

Lightning striking your Energisers?

Lightning strike to Energiser

Do you live in an area with regular lightning strikes? Have you had to replace an Electric Fence Energiser after it was hit by lightning?

Lightning strikes to your Electric Fence can damage your Energisers, to prevent this simply add the JVA Technologies 3 stage Lightning Diverter to your fence system between the energiser and the fence.

The Lightning Diverter is also useful for reducing radio and telephone interference caused by Electric Fences in close proximity to phone lines.

Protect your livestock with JVA products

 

Many farmers struggle with the tough task of monitoring and maintaining cattle, sheep and other live stock. Not only do farmers have the responsibility of keeping thousand of animals well fed and watered, protection from feral predators is vital. Researchers believe feral animals, (especially dingoes) are increasing across almost all rangeland sheep production areas, and are therefore one of the most prodigious threats to animals for rangeland farmers.

As a response to this growing problem, JVA offers two products that when coupled with any standard Electric Fence Energiser will monitor an Electric Fence - the ZM1 and ZM20. The ZM1 is a start of fence monitor while the ZM20 is a fence loop monitor that allows for up to 20 programmable sectors. This technology has the ability to report fault position*, monitor ground and fence voltage, fence currents, and will sound an alarm when a sudden reduction in fence conditions occur.

This device provides many benefits, with farmers instantly knowing if there is a fault in the fence and what sector of the fence the fault is in*. These products will provide security and protection to any farm or livestock.

* Fence sectoring and fault position reporting only available on ZM20 model.

What do we mean when we say 'upto 5km of fence'?

Short Out

Many of our Energisers say * The actual kilometers of fence powered by this energiser depends on your farm fence conditions and therefore varies greatly. What do we mean when we say this?

Think of your fence as a pipe full of water (voltage) - the longer the pipe is; the more water required to fill it. When scrub or grass touches the fence it is like a leak and the current flows out, reducing the pressure and dropping the voltage. Fence design can have the same effect and even a perfect fence will reduce the Voltage.

An effective fence voltage is above 3.5kV. To maintain this the fence could be perfect and long or pretty beat up and short.

Accessorise your Fault Finder

Fault Finder Accessories

You can now accessorise your JVA fault finder with the JVA belt pouch and short out leads currently available for individual purchase. These items are accessible through the JVA eBay store, and may be purchased separately or in a package with the fault finder.

Electric Fencing Q&A - What are Joules?

James Joule

What are "Joules" and how do they help when choosing an Electric Fence Energiser? Named after James Prescott Joule (1818-1889), a joule (J) is a measure of electrical energy. In short, it is the strength of the pulse that puts the voltage and current onto your electric fence.

When looking at Electric Fence Energisers it is helpful to compare their Output Joules, though some companies will only quote Stored Joules, so what is the difference? Stored joules is the amount of electrical charge held in the main capacitor before an electric pulse is discharged. This discharge or energy actually transferred to the fence is called the Output Joules. Since not all the energy makes it to the fence terminals (some is lost as heat) generally each 1J of stored energy will provide approximately 0.75J of output energy. So for a fair comparison between a Stored to Output J figure, reduce the Stored figure by multiplying by 3/4.

Some energiser manufacturers make ridiculous claims about amount of fence in km that their energisers can power. Always check the Joules, it is a far better method of comparison.

Short Leads - the long and the short of it.


Short Out

Since the invention of the directional electric fence fault finder finding faults has been a lot easier. Instead of switching sections of fence off until the kick returns, graziers can use a Fault Finder to lead them to the fault with its clever direction arrows. The next step is, of course, to fix the problem and get on with the next job.

To turn off the fence use a 'short-out lead' to short out the live wire by attaching it up stream (feed or energiser side) of the point you wish to work on. Simple find a good earth, a steel dropper will do, and connect the jumper lead from the live wire to the earth. This will short it out and keep it 'cold' while you fix the problem. Be careful if you are using rusty metal as an earth - wait for any sparking to subside before touching the fence. If you have more than one live wire then you will need a couple of leads.

You can now buy the JVA Fault Finder with Short Out Leads and a handy Carry Pouch here.

This new festival has something to offer everyone – celebrating all that is wonderful about our four hoofed friends the festival is complimented by fantastic music, and delicious food.


Inspired by the success of horse festivals in America, Greg Nugent (General Manager of Harness Racing Club) had the idea of making a festival local to Australia, and with the highest ownership per capita of horses in Australia, Canberra was an ideal location for a festival celebrating and showcasing the horse and its numerous capabilities. Unbridled taking place through the day and into the night will honour the majestic glory of the horse and all it has to offer - with a multi faceted equine program including performances, demonstrations, workshops and classes run by industry professionals and clinicians.

Catering for an expected crowd of 1000, the Unbridled 2014 program is going to be packed! The festival will showcase a dizzying array of horse sports and performances, including jousting, mounted archery, barrel racing, horseball, mounted games, horseboarding and a jaw dropping horse spectacular! There will also be demonstrations from a brilliant array of equine experts, as well as plenty of opportunity for festival attendees to get ‘up close and personal’ with a range of horse breeds in the Unbridled Breed Pavilion. The little ones have also been thought of, with the HorseWyse Neigh’bourhood Kidz Zone featuring heaps of hands-on activities, craft sessions and a human show jumping course.

Of course, Unbridled is about more than just the horses! The festival has put together a jam-packed music program, featuring Busby Marou, which will run into the wee hours of the night. To round the whole festival off, the Grand Bazaar Food & Craft Market will be overrun with delicious international foods, local and national artists and crafters, and a huge variety of equine gear and apparel.

ZM20 Fence Monitor Preventing Poaching

From October 2013 I have been working on a wireless and ZM20 project at Timbavati Game reserve.
This project encompasses game fencing as per attached map and monitoring the fences using our ZM20 monitor and IP cameras at strategic points.
Because of the distances, really bad cell phone signal and terrain challenges we decided to uses Wi-Fi communication and have installed five 12m towers on which we have installed our Wi-Fi equipment and IP cameras .

There are a total of seven ZM20 monitors connected to existing energisers. Each of the 7 fences are from 3km to 5,5km in length and consist of 6 and 7 live wires using a combination of triple, double and single offset brackets.

To sectorise these fences might sound easy but keep in mind that we are travelling in a game park where your average speed is 30km/hr! In addition you have terrain that needs a 4x2 or 4x4 vehicle. So to sectorise one section might take half a day because of travelling to the end of the fence for the midpoint then returning to setup sectors 1 onwards. Throw in travelling time to each station then a whole day is gone. We also have animal road blocks like elephant, rhino, buffalo, leopard, lion, etc that demands stoppage time and the weather plays its part too, as one part of the park may be bone dry but another part maybe drenched with heavy rain. With the rains the terrain can change drastically where even the best 4x4 vehicle gets stuck - you cannot put a time to your activities and plan ahead. You have to go out and hope that you get as much accomplished as the weather and the animals dictate.

Wi-Fi Communications
To setup the Wi-Fi equipment we take GPS coordinates of each station and plot them on a Garmin map source program that has a plug-in to Google earth.
We then look at the elevation profiles between all the stations to ascertain where the best locations for our towers and repeaters are - elevation profiles help us to see potential land obstacles and also work out differences in height between stations which then gives us an idea of how to position Wi-Fi equipment. We also have to make provision for trees.

At the wardens headquarters there are 3 more client PC’s with Perimeter Patrol that connect to the wardens PC which serves as the HLI server. Here one of the Wi-Fi masts is also located: giving us a point to point link between the repeater station and HQ that will serve as a data link or backhaul for the energiser and camera info. The game warden can now sit in his office and view fence voltages and see certain areas of the park. All rangers involved can now monitor the fences and cameras via their PC’s, Smart-phone or Tablet’s. The warden and his team are using the system extremely well and have scheduled maintenance based on the information from the ZM20’s. This also helps the game ranger’s response time as they now can go directly to the affected areas as per Perimeter patrol and reduce the time used patrolling to test if fences are operational. Thus they can now concentrate on the more important task of preventing poaching!

They have come to rely on the information from Perimeter Patrol, and are now looking into using the remote relay functionality of Perimeter Patrol to switch lights on/off and open the gates mentioned above. It is awesome to see how this technology works.

Remember this is all wireless in the bush!!

Vernard, South Africa, June 2014

Update: We have now been asked to install this system at the Kruger National Wildlife College.

Lightning damaging your Energisers?

PTE0054

Lightning only has to strike in the vicinity of your fence to cause a voltage spike and damage your Electric Fence Energiser. Now that storm season is upon us it is wise to install Lightning Diverters to protect your Energisers.

Small, robust and weatherproof, JVA's easy to connect multi-stage Lightning Diverter handles surge currents of upto 3000 amps. JVA provides a three year warranty to protect you from the cost of energiser repair should the diverter fail or be hit by a damaging surge of lightning (registration of the energiser to be protected is required).
