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 7kg 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 world-wide 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 water courses? 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 you horses or ponies to one of the best all-round 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 700g (25oz), so throw it into your backpack and away you go. It’s really easy to setup 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.

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.

    I have been using the Sureguard Solar Fence units for about 10 years for temporary fencing while camping with the horses. Recently purchased another to split some paddocks until I get more permanent fencing at our new property. Excellent units.

    Solar Sureguard pro-tech 5
    Excellent product. Works well as a solar unit. Has a few too many functions that make it confusing to set. I use it on 24/7 and it's working well now I have it getting full sun..Good after sales support. Would recommend Sureguard.

    We have electric fence around the hay bales, and we upgraded to sureguard as the xbred ewes we're just helping themselves. Not any more!

    Solar 5k energiser
    Thanks for the very knowledgable help to fine tune the energiser, however, the rain has prevented me from getting to the work area and haven't been able to further test the advanced tuning. Thanks again for your help

    Wonderful bit of kit
    Read all the reviews of this product and my neighbour bought one and he’s fussy as and loved it to bits, I bought one and I’m seriously impressed, I put it up for some calves as they where escapers and I set it up in minutes and over a month later it’s paid itself off over and over again. I’ll be buying more of them.. wonderful bit of kit.. portable reliable.. thank you sureguard..

    Simple, well sealed and light
    Have connected one up to section of fixed fencing about one year ago and have not touched it. Just purchased another for strip grazing. Well sealed so good for our high rainfall area. Mechanism to attach to steel post could be less fancy as theft risk is generally low.
