Tic tracers won't work on 3 phase AC either if the conductors are close together, the 3 phase electric fields that are 120 degrees apart cancel each other out, can be a very dangerous senario.

Yeah, but I don't think these fences just apply a continuous 7.5kVDC charge, do they? The couple I've seen work by sending out brief, regular pulses.

I would expect the tic tracer to chirp regularly in the presence of a pulsed DC field.

I think it does pulse. The on pilot light also flashes with a click to let you know it's working.

My customers email this morning. "It seemed to work. I didn’t hear anything last night, but I was very tired, went to bed at 1am and woke at 6am. I will talk with you on Monday"
