At this point, you may be well aware of the value of in-ground dog fence system. Whether your system is old and outdated or your transmitter needs replacing due to damage or wear, upgrading your dog fence system is as easy as replacing the transmitter.
In ground dog fences (or wired dog fences) are comprised of several components; you have the receiver collar, the transmitter, power adapter and/or battery, and wire. The system works by conveying a radio signal around the set perimeter. The pet wears a receiver collar with special contact points; the collar gives a warning sound and/or stimulation if your pet attempts to go beyond the boundary zone. The transmitter is basically the heart of the system as it transmits the signal through the boundary wire. The transmitter is the first component that you will set up in order for the receiver collar and the whole system to function.
Why Replace My Dog Fence Transmitter?
Like any other electrical unit, an in-ground dog fence has a lifespan. Most properly cared for dog fence transmitters last many years, but there are times when a replacement is needed or wanted. Please note that if you keep having to replace transmitters as they frequently get damaged, you may need to check your surge protector instead. Transmitters are susceptible to external lightning surges so make sure that you invest in professional grade surge protection as well to prevent power surge damage on the transmitter of your pet containment system.
Many customers opt to replace their dog fence transmitter as their needs change. Perhaps you originally installed a single dog system but now find that you want to add a second dog to your household. You can replace your dog fence transmitter without replacing the entire system simply by disconnecting the wire and reconnecting it to a new transmitter. This allows you to update or upgrade your electric dog fence system without re-installing the entire system.
