Critical Set Up Guidelines - PetSafe Wireless Mapping Fence

When deciding where to place your transmitter remember it needs to be located in doors within the area you want to contain. You will eventually be programming boundary flags to represent your boundary. Each boundary flag will need to be located between fifteen feet and ninety feet from the transmitter. Each boundary flag must have a unique radial line or view of the transmitter No flag may block another flag's line to the transmitter. The positioning of the transmitter is critical to the performance of this system. After some testing the transmitter will need to be mounted and any slight change to the transmitter position would change the boundary. If the transmitter was accidentally bumped it could cause a variance to your layout. If you choose a partial boundary the first and last boundary flag must be located within one foot of the physical boundary such as the house, privacy fence, or wall. For partial boundaries the transmitter should be at least ten feet away from the entry door where the pet will enter and exit the home. Please note the following guidelines when considering where to place your transmitter. Do not mount the transmitter within five feet of large metal surfaces such as refrigerators and washers or dryers. Do not place the transmitter on a metal surface such as a metal shelf or metal table. Do not locate the transmitter closer than ten feet from water heaters and furnaces. If the transmitter will be within ten feet of overhead metal garage doors place it close to the ceiling. Place it at least two feet above the roof of any parked vehicle in the garage. Do not mount the transmitter within two feet of a concrete floor or adjacent to metal HVAC duct work. You should also avoid electric surface panels or main wiring trunks due to the large concentration of house wiring. This could cause distortion. Any buried utility lines such as power, cable TV, phone or metal water lines must not run parallel with the boundary unless separated from the boundary by at least fifteen feet. Because they are not buried as deeply cable TV or phone lines usually cause more problems than power and water lines. This may require using a partial layout to avoid this potential interference problem. Always avoid crossing buried lines at points far away from the transmitter. If it is required for the boundary to cross a buried utility line, it should cross at a right angle and it is preferable to cross as close to the transmitter as possible but not closer than the fifteen foott.
