What is your job?

Don’t be deceived by the Pro-Tech 5’s compact light-weight design. You probably already know that many electric fence energizers are big boxes mostly full of air and heavy batteries. Pro-Tech 5 WILL perform in a wide range of electric fence situations. Do you really want to be moving a 5kg energizer around when the Pro-Tech 5, weighing just 0.9kg, will do the job?

Outstanding Features

Versatile Fence Construction

Use with Steel Fencing Wire or Polywire, Polytape, Polybraid and Polyrope from well-known Australian, American, New Zealand and British brands, including: Gallagher®, Daken®, Rutland®, Rappa®, Speedrite®, Parmak®, Zareba®, Fi-Shock®, Electrobraid®, Yardgard®, Farmgard®, Baygard® and Equi-Rope®.

Latest Solar Panel & Battery Technologies

Not just for the Australian sun. Pro-Tech 5 has outstanding fence performance even in prolonged cloudy conditions. Check our worldwide solar specification: Solar Specification.

Key Lock Security Mounting

Theft happens because most energizers are not locked to the post. Your Pro-Tech 5 has a unique key-locking mechanism that safeguards your investment.

Massive 190 Joule Lightning Surge Protection

Solar energizers are never connected to a mains supply so your energizer can never cause damage to your household appliances. In-built surge protection will safeguard your energizer.

Agricultural Industries

Pro-Tech 5 should be your choice for all your livestock fencing requirements. It’s the best all-rounder for the beef cattle and dairy industry and with proper fencing design is suitable for sheep and goats.

Whether you have small or large acreage livestock farming, Pro-Tech 5 is definitely a smart choice. Do you need to do rotational grazing (strip grazing)? Section off temporary paddocks? Protect hay bales or watercourses? Strengthen a boundary fence or protect your whole farm or ranch? Pro-Tech 5 is a great stand-alone electric fence energiser that you’ll grow to love.

Equestrian Activities

Treat your horses or ponies to one of the best all-around electric fence units available. Whether you want to strengthen your existing fencing, stop your horse cribbing on the fence posts or create a holding paddock or corral, Sureguard’s Pro-Tech 5 is an excellent choice. Remember, Pro-Tech 5 is also designed as a portable electric fence, weighing just 900g (32oz), so throw it into your backpack and away you go. It’s really easy to set up temporary fencing for equine activities such as endurance rides and horse shows.

The Sureguard Pro-Tech 5 - Everything you need. Everywhere you go.

Hobby Farms

Choose the Pro-Tech 5 and you may only ever need one energiser. Pro-Tech 5 is so versatile and will give you many years of trouble-free service.  Pro-Tech 5 is suitable for a wide range of applications.

Pest Control

When Pro-Tech 5 is combined with appropriate fence design it may be used to control a wide range of pest animals, including: foxes, wild dogs, dingoes, wombats, deer, moose, badgers, etc. It has even been used to control bears and monkeys. You’ll need to research what fence designs have worked for other people.

You’ll also find Sureguard energisers being used for bird control on houses to protect solar hot water systems and on commercial buildings to reduce damage. Sureguard’s energisers have even been installed on the old Parliament building in Canberra!

Customer Reviews

It worked the moment I hooked it up, so easy to use, I will be getting another one in the near future. I have used all the top brands in electric fences and this has been the best in as far as set up, no fiddling around and works straight away.


I had a unit for the past 15 years and it simply died. This updated model seems better and is keeping our horses off the fence. Very happy with it.


This is my 5th unit the oldest is about 6 years old. All are in excellent working condition. A couple of years ago I return one of the units for repair by post. To my delight it was returned 6 days latter @ no cost to me.


I bought one of these about 16 years ago and it has finally given up the ghost which is why I have bought the same again. They are a great bit of gear and have been brilliant to use with my horses.

    Best portable unit available
    I have been using SureGuard energisers for at least 12 years. I believe this is my third unit I have purchased. The last one is still going strong after a few years, but needed an extra to fence of a smaller paddock for the yearlings. I use these for camping with the horses. Very light, easy to use and charge very quickly. 5 *****

    Protecch 5 Energiser
    Best solar and battery unit by far…, I have few different ones… Would be handy to have high intensity pulse LED that also mimics the front panel LEDs on the side of unit so it’s operation state can be seen from a distance. Overall a great unit. [EDITOR: That is called a "Live Fence Indicator". Google for more info.]

    Easy to connect. My daughters stallion was annoying our 2 geldings so we put him in a paddock probably 300m x 50m in size and after touching the fence a couple of times he has not attempted to get out. That was 2 weeks ago, so fingers crossed

    Solar energiser electric fence
    We bought one from this wonderful Australian Business. Many, many years ago it is still alive today. Because you can’t beat good quality we bought two more of the latest version. Nice looking unit, works great and what’s even better the Ants can’t get in. We highly recommend this product.

    Great modern electric fence
    I have two of these units now, at the moment, one for keeping sheep in, and one for keeping deer out ( yes, that’s right, one single hot wire for them, mesh for the sheep). I might change my mind about the shape of the paddock next month…it won’t matter because whatever I decide I just grab the unit and reinstall it in another spot. Next trip to the tip out go old car batteries and previous electric fence rig. I highly recommend these clever, simple, portable units. They really are next generation,

    Improvement on previous model
    This is our second Pro-tech 5 in 3 years. The first is still going strong though quite faded on the solar panel and the old push switch keeps jamming. The new model has a much nicer looking solar panel and has a rocker switch instead. One thing that would definitely be a good addition would be some sort of bird spikes along the top to stop birds crapping on the solar panel. Over-all its a great little unit with a heck of a punch.
