About Thunder or Electrical Storms
Even though your Invisible Fence system is
equipped with lightning surge protection, it is still
possible that it may be damaged during a thunder
storm, or when an electrical storm is in the area
where you live. For added peace of mind, you may
want to take the Computer Collar off your pet
before an electrical storm.
· Check Your Pet’s Safe Areas
After a storm has ended, check all of your pet’s
safe areas before you put the Computer Collar back
on him. Use the following procedure to make sure
that your system is continuing to work properly.
Hold the Computer Collar collar so that the
receiver is at about the same height and on the
same angle that it is when your pet is wearing it,
and move throughout his safe areas. This should
include all of the safe areas where your pet is
allowed to go, in your yard and in your home.
If the receiver sounds a warning when it is in a
safe area, DO NOT put the Computer Collar back
on your pet. Immediately call your local Invisible
Fence professional for service.
Use a leash or other means to contain your pet
until after the service has been completed.
If you have any questions about any aspect of
your Invisible Fence system, please call your Invisible
Fence professional immediately.
· At Least Once a Month, and After a Thunder
Storm, Check the Width of Your Invisible Fence
System’s Signal Field
Always keep a note of the width of your

ICT 725 Transmitter Installation
Features and Functions
The ICT 725 Invisible® pet containment system
is designed for a system with a single signal field wire
that may consist of up to 2,500 feet(762.5m) of 14
gauge, or 3,000 feet(915m) of 12 gauge loop wire and
up to 150 feet(45.74m) of twisted pair wire.
The ICT 725 has a green LED to indicate that
power is on and there is no break in the signal field
wire. This LED is ON for 1 second and then OFF for
4 seconds. The LED turns red when the transmitter is
in battery backup mode. The ICT 725 has both an
audible and visual BreakAlert®. If there is a break in
the signal field wire, the green/red LED will stay on
without blinking and the BreakAlert will sound an
alarm. This alarm will continue until the break is
repaired, or the unit is turned OFF; disconnected from
the 12vAC transformer and the backup battery. The
ICT 725 also has a course and a fine signal field
adjustment knob, and a switch that changes the channel of operation between 10K, the UP position and
7K, the DOWN position.
Lightning and surge protection is provided by an
LP Card that is plugged into the right side of the circuit board. The signal from the transmitter must pass
through the LP Card to the signal field wire. If the LP
Card is damaged or removed from the circuit board the
LED will stay on without blinking and the BreakAlert
will sound an alarm.
The ICT 725 also has internal battery backup circuitry, that will charge an external 12v battery. With a
charged 12v battery the ICT 725 will power the signal
field wire if 110vAC electric power is lost.
Removing the ICT 725 Cover
To take the cover off the transmitter, hold the base
of the transmitter in one hand and, using the thumb and
index finger of your other hand, gently compress the
top and bottom of the cover plate and remove it.
3
ICT 725 Transmitter Installation continued
To put the cover back on, align the two tabs on the
top of the cover plate with the two slots, on the top of
the base, and slide the tabs into the slots. Lock the
cover in place by sliding the bottom tab of the cover
plate into the bottom slot in the base.
Caution: Never install a system or any
equipment, or service any equipment,
during a thunder or electrical storm, or
when a thunder storm is near your area.
Grounding the System
The Signal Field
Invisible Fence® transmitters produce a coded, low
power radio signal which travels from the transmitter,
along the signal field wire and back to the transmitter
to produce a Invisible Barrier ® wall. This signal is what
activates your pet’s Computer Collar ® receiver.
There is no hazard in touching or exposing the
signal field wire because the wire carries only harmless low voltage electricity.
The ICT 725 system functions only when the signal field wire forms one continuous circuit. The signal
field is created where two sides of the wire are separated and is cancelled where two sides are kept close
together or are twisted together. If there is a break in
the signal field wire, the signal field will be lost and
the system will cease to function.
Caution: Before starting any work,
you must unplug the 12vAC
transformer and turn off the electric service
at the circuit panel.
All outdoor Invisible Fence pet containment systems are equipped with lightning surge protection,
which is designed to prevent damage to the transmitter in the event of an electrical surge.
If the system is properly installed and grounded,
and is equipped with an Invisible Fence lightning protection device, Invisible Fence will repair or replace,
at our option, any transmitter, transmitter circuit
board, transformer, or lightning protector damaged by
an electrical surge for as long
as the original owner owns the
system.
Before you connect the
signal field wire, or backup
battery, or connect the transformer to the transmitter, you
must ground the system.
Connecting the Grounding
Wire to the ICT 725
Circuit Board
Put the grounding wire
pin into the square screw
clamp marked EARTH GND
on the transmitter’s circuit
board. Be careful not to push
the pin too far through the connector. The grounding
wire pin must not touch any other component on the
circuit board. Use a flat head screwdriver with a 1/8
inch(3.2mm) wide blade to tighten the connector
screw only enough so that it is snug against the
ground wire pin. Then tighten the screw an additional
1/4 turn.
ICT 725 system with a backup battery
and an Invisible Sentry™ system.
Planning the Installation
Install the transmitter in a dry indoor location,
near a grounded 110vAC electric outlet that offers
easy access to the outside. A garage or basement is
usually the best location. If you are not sure whether
your outlets are grounded or not, contact your electrician. To fasten the transmitter on a wall, use 3/4
inch(19mm), #8 or #10 pan-head sheet metal screws
through the four round holes in the base of the transmitter case.
Note: DO NOT tighten the screw
more than a 1/4 turn when tightening
the grounding wire screw clamp.

ICT 725 Transmitter Installation continued
Caution: DO NOT make any sharp
bends in the grounding wire.
Grounding Instructions to a Ground Fault
Circuit Interrupter, GFCI Receptacle
Definition: A GFCI receptacle provides a function similar to a circuit breaker. When it detects a
ground fault in the circuit’s electric current the GFCI
trips and cuts the power. A ground fault is an abnormal
electrical condition which is not desirable.
Over tightening the screw that holds the
grounding wire pin may shear off or fracture
the EARTH GND wire connector and greatly
reduce the quality of the electrical connection.
A sound earth ground connection is essential
and required for lightning protection and
the safety of the system.
Caution: Never use a transmitter
when the EARTH GND wire connector
on the circuit board is partially sheared
or fractured.
1. Remove the outlet cover plate.
2. Remove the bottom screw holding the GFCI
outlet in the junction box.
3. Put the screw through the grounding wire ring
terminal.
4. Refasten the screw, with the ring terminal on
it, to the GFCI junction box and tighten it.
5. File a notch in the bottom edge of the cover
plate slightly larger than the diameter of the 12 gauge
grounding wire. Bend the wire to fit in the notch and
reattach the cover plate keeping the wire in the notch.
Grounding Instructions to an Electric Outlet
Remove the screw that holds the cover on the
grounded 110vAC electric outlet. Put this screw
through the grounding wire ring terminal. Then put
the screw, with the ring terminal through the outlet
cover plate and screw it back into the outlet. The
grounding wire must be on the outside of the outlet
cover. If the cover plate screw is plastic, replace it
with a size 6-32 x 1/2 inch oval-head metal screw.
IMPORTANT: During the grounding process,
make sure that the screw and the threads in the outlet
are clean. All foreign matter such as paint, corrosion,
grease, and dirt must be removed. There must be metal
to metal contact of the mating threads. Also, the
underside of the screw head and ring terminal must be
clean. If the surfaces appear corroded, scrape, wire
brush, or sand each thoroughly, or replace them.
An LP Card helps protect the transmitter from
lightning surge damage. Check to make sure that the
LP Card is plugged into the LP connector on the lower

right side of the transmitter’s circuit board. The LP
Card must be plugged into the Loop LP connector for
the signal to be transmitted to the signal field wire.
Installing a Backup Battery
An external 12vDC battery connected to an ICT
725 transmitter will supply the power needed to keep
the Invisible Fence® system operating if there is an
electric utility power outage. A fully charged 12vDC
battery with a 5.0Ah(Amp hours) rating will power the
system for approximately 10 hours with the signal
field set to the maximum width. Conversely, the narrower the signal field is set, the longer the battery will
continue to power the system.
Caution: Be careful not to reverse
the RED and BLACK wires when
you connect them to the terminals on the battery. The RED wire is positive(+) and
the BLACK wire is negative(--).
Warning: Never connect a backup
battery to a transmitter while 110vAC
power is being supplied to the transmitter.
Before you connect the battery make sure
that the transformer is unplugged from
both the 110v outlet and the transmitter.
Slide the
battery into the
battery box.
The bottom of
the battery
should sit on
the internal
reinforcing ribs
on the bottom
of the box.
When the battery is in the
battery box, cinch the zip tie
tightly around the battery to
hold the battery securely in the
box.
Use 4, 3/4 inch(19mm),
#10 pan-head sheet metal
screws to fasten the battery
box to the wall.
After the battery box has
been fastened to the wall,
connect the battery
to the transmitter’s
circuit board.
Finish the installation
by feeding any loose wire
between the transmitter
and the battery box into the
hole on the back edge of
A backup battery should always be installed in an
Invisible Fence battery box. The box is made of corrosion proof, impact resistant ABS plastic to securely
hold the battery in place. It has integral, internal reinforcing ribs that add structural strength and keep the
battery level, and is ventilated to prevent heat buildup.
Warning: If an external backup
battery is left unprotected or on the
floor or the ground, this may lead to
premature battery failure.
Install the battery box on the wall near the transmitter. Hold the battery box on the wall where you
want to fasten it and use the round holes through the
back edges of the box as a template to mark the wall
where you will drill the holes
for the fasteners.
Lace a 16 inch(40.6cm)
long zip tie through
the two holes in
each side of the
inside front corners of the
battery box. The zip tie
should form a U inside the
middle of the box.

ICT 725 Transmitter Installation continued
the battery box.
ICT 725 transmitters have a two position headerconnector that the plug holding the two leads from the
battery is plugged into. The rectangular connector has
two metal prongs and is labeled -- 12VDC + BATTERY. It is located on the bottom, left of the transmitter’s circuit board between the LED and the
12vAC Power Jack.
The battery connector is designed so that the plug
that holds the two inboard ends of the wires that are
connected to the battery will only go into it one way,
making it nearly impossible to reverse the battery wire connections
at the transmitter.
whether they have been engaged often or not,
after that time.
Detecting Low Voltage in the Backup Battery
After a 12v battery is fully charged, a microprocessor in the transmitter will automatically check
the battery’s voltage. If the voltage of the battery
drops between 11vDC and 9vDC, the transmitter’s
BreakAlert® alarm will sound. The low battery alarm
will continue until 110vAC power is restored and the
battery voltage is recharged to greater than 11vDC.
The alarm is a single, one second beep that will sound
once a minute.
The LED on the transmitter that is green during
normal operation, will turn red indicating that there is
a 110vAC power failure and that the system is operating on 12vDC battery backup power. The red LED
will alternately blink ON for one second and OFF for
four seconds.
A fully discharged 5.0Ah battery will take five
times its projected operating time to completely
recharge. The battery will take about 50 hours to fully
charge. The transmitter automatically charges the
backup battery while the system is operating normally
on 110vAC power.
There is a replaceable, 2amp fast-blow fuse on
the transmitter’s circuit board to protect the transmitter and the battery. If the wires are accidentally
crossed when they are connected to the battery, or if
the plug is connected to the transmitter incorrectly,
the fuse will blow.
Note: How long it will take the battery
to recharge to 11vDC will depend on
how low the battery’s voltage has dropped and
how wide the signal field is. The lower the
voltage is and the wider the signal field is,
the longer it will take to recharge the battery.
Batteries Recommended by Invisible Technologies,
Inc., are all 12vDC, 5.0Amp hours.
Approved Batteries
All are lead-acid, 12vDC, 5.0Ah.
Power Mate®, PM1255;
Power Sonic®, PS-1252;
Panasonic®, LCR12V5P;
Cell-Con, PN 90195
Note: A battery will take five times its
rated operating time to fully charge.
A 5.0Ah battery will take about 50 hours
to charge to full power.
If the voltage of the battery drops too low to produce a signal field, the LED will not be lit.
Warning: Only use one of the
approved lead-acid batteries.
Using a battery that is not lead-acid, or
a battery with a different voltage can damage
both the transmitter and the battery.
Connecting the Signal Field Wire
Connect the twisted pair ends of the signal field
wire to the ICT 725. Strip about 1/4 inch(6.4mm) of
insulation off each of the two ends of the twisted wire.
Twist the exposed wire strands on each end of the wire
together to hold the strands together. You want to make

sure that a loose strand on one end of the wire does not
touch the other end of the wire, or the other opening in
the wire connector, or any other component on the
transmitter’s circuit board.
Connect each end of the twisted pair to the ICT
725 signal field wire connector labeled LOOP.
Warning: The model
100-0018-01 is the
only transformer authorized
by Invisible Technologies, Inc.
to be used to supply the power
to an ICT 725. The use of any
other transformer may result
in a malfunction of the
transmitter and
the ICT 725 system.
Use your thumb to push back and down hard on
the white tabs located on top of the signal field wire
connector. While holding down the tabs, put one
stripped end of the twisted wire
into each of the openings in the
connector. Either end of the
wire may be put into either
opening. Hold the ends of the
wire in the openings and release
the tabs. The ends of the wire
will automatically be crimped
into the wire connector.
Setting and Checking the Width of the Signal Field
A signal field that is broadcasted out from the signal field wire is what activates your pet's Computer
Collar ® receiver. The signal field can be set to various
distances from a signal field wire loop depending on
the layout and size of your property, and the temperament of your dog. The average setting of the signal
field is 6 to 10 feet(1.8 to 3m) wide.
Check to be sure that the transmitter is turned on
and that the channel of
operation switch is set
to same frequency as
the receiver collar,
10K
or 7K. The switch is
labeled SW1, the 10K
setting is UP and the
7K setting is DOWN.
There are two
signal field adjustment
knobs on the ICT 725 circuit board. The right knob is
the coarse signal field adjustment, and is numbered 1
to 10. The left knob is the fine tune signal field adjustment, and is also numbered 1 to 10. Turning the signal
field adjustment knobs clockwise increases the width
of the signal field. By first setting the coarse adjustment and then using the fine tune adjustment, you can
set the the signal field to
the exact width you
want. For example, if
the coarse adjustment
setting is producing a 9
foot(2.7m) signal field,
Note: You will have to apply pressure
to push down the white tabs on the wire
connector; the connector will not break, so do
not be concerned about pushing too hard.
To remove the signal field wire from the wire
connector, push back and down on the tabs on the connector and pull the ends of the wire out.
ICT 725, 12vAC Transformer,
Model 100-0018-01
To operate the ICT 725 system, plug the
transformer into the power jack, J1, on the transmitter’s circuit board. Then plug the transformer into a
110vAC electric outlet. Any customer with another
electric power source should ask their Invisible Fence®
professional for an appropriate adapter.
Only use the model 100-0018-0l, 12vAC transformer provided with the ICT 725. This transformer
will supply the output necessary to power the ICT
725.

ICT 725 Transmitter Installation continued
the fine tune adjustment can then be used to make the
signal field slightly narrower or wider by a few inches
These adjustments do not change the correction
level of the receiver, they only change the width of the
signal field from the signal field loop wire.
You can check the width of the signal field by
holding a Computer Collar® so that the receiver is
parallel to the loop wire. Hold the collar so that the
receiver is at about the same height and on the
same angle that it will be when your pet is
wearing it and walk slowly toward the signal
field loop wire. The receiver will sound a
warning when it is at the edge of the signal field.

to your Inv i s i ble Fence system.
2. Gradually allow your pet to become accustomed to its new Computer Collar. Ta ke off the
collar eve ry night during the fi rst month and perio d i c a l ly there a f t e r. This will ensure proper fit and
avoid the possibility of any irritation that the posts
may cause to your pet’s skin.
3. Check the Computer Collar near your television set(s). Although the re c e iver has a decoding circ u i t , some televisions may produce a coded
signal similar to the Inv i s i ble Fence signal and
m ay cause the re c e iver to activate when it is cl o s e
to a telev i s i o n .
4. DO NOT s e c u re the corre c t i o n
posts in the re c e iver with any
kind of glue or adhesive.
A LWAY S use the post
tightening tool to tighten
the re c e iver posts.
5. Check the tra n s m i t t e r p e ri o d i c a l ly to
m a ke sure that it is operating pro p e rly and producing a signal fi e l d.
6. NEVER, under any circ u m s t a n c e s , u s e
this pro d u c t for any purpose other than that
s t ated in this m a nual. Inv i s i ble Fe n c e systems are
designed for animal use only.
Note: A Computer Collar receiver
has a fail safe mechanism.
The receiver will go
through three complete cycles
of 10 seconds on and 10
seconds off and
then shut down.
It will not
reactivate until it is
taken completely out of the the signal field,
and is then brought back into it.

pet’s nose. Adjust the collar so it’s snug enough to
slide one finger between a post and your pet’s
neck. Periodic adjustment of the Computer Collar
may be necessary as your pet’s coat, weight and
age change.
Changing the Computer Collar Receiver’s
Power Cap Battery
The Power Cap battery is a replaceable 3v
lithium battery with a unique plastic
screw cap. It is very important for
proper operation that the receiver
always has a good Power Cap battery
installed. On average, the battery
should be changed every 3 to 4 months.
But battery life can be reduced by several variables,
including lower temperatures, the number of times a
pet challenges the system boundary, and the fit of the
collar on the pet’s neck. In cold weather, for example,
it may be necessary to replace the battery more often.
Your Invisible Fence® professional should recommend
a schedule for regularly changing a receiver’s battery.
We recommend that you ask your Dealer about a battery replacement plan.

Note: Invisible Technologies, Inc.
recommends that a customer subscribe
to a battery replacement plan where
fresh Power Cap batteries are mailed directly to
them on a regular schedule.
Your Invisible Fence professional can
determine the best schedule for you.
Fitting the Computer Collar
To wo rk pro p e rly, the correction posts on the
Computer Collar receiver must touch your pet’s skin.
Posts are available in three different sizes to ensure
a proper fit for every pet: s h o rt , 1/2 inch (12.7mm);
long, 3/4 inch(19mm); and short-spaced posts.
The receiver should be positioned undern e at h
your pet’s neck with the posts pointing up and the
Warning: The use of any battery other than
a battery authorized by Invisible
Technologies, Inc. can cause a receiver to
operate erratically. Failure of the receiver due to the
use of an unauthorized battery, may result in denial of
a warranty claim.
Make sure that the Computer Collar is snug
enough for the posts to touch your pet’s skin.
Be sure that you

and the post.
Invisible Fence receivers are water resistant, they
are not waterproof. In particularly humid climates or
when a dog has access to creeks, pools, etc., water
may get trapped in the battery compartment. A small
rubber O-ring around the battery cap will minimize
water invasion, but if you think that the battery compartment is getting wet, take the battery out of the
Computer Collar receiver when your dog is not wearing the collar. This will allow the battery and the com10

Power Cap Battery Tester
We strongly recommend that each customer
obtain a Power Cap battery tester. At least once a
month, check the receiver battery with the Power Cap
battery tester to be sure that your pet will stay out of
areas that it is supposed to, and remain safely within
your Invisible Fence® system.
The Power Cap battery tester measures the internal resistance of a Power Cap battery and shows how
much life is left in the battery.
To test a receiver battery with the Power Cap battery tester, remove the battery from the receiver and
put it into the Power Cap battery tester the same way
that you would put it into a receiver. If the battery is
good, the green and red LEDs on the tester will both

small, thin coin in the
slot on top of the battery and turn it counter clockwise. The battery will rotate up and out of the battery
chamber. Never use a screwdriver to remove or
tighten the battery because you may strip the plastic
head on top of the battery.
Note: Remember, before you put in a
new Power Cap battery, you must wait for a full
five minutes so that the Computer Collar
receiver’s microprocessor has enough time to
recycle after the old battery has been removed.
To install a new battery, line up the two lugs on
the bottom of the Power Cap with the two grooves in
the sides of the battery chamber. Gently put the Power
Cap into the chamber while turning it clockwise with
your fingers. Finally, use a small, thin coin in the slot
on the top of the battery to turn the battery clockwise
until the slot on the
top of the battery
is lined up with
the two small
raised tabs on the
bottom
of
the
receiver.
When the new Power Cap is in, wait 10 seconds
before taking the receiver into the signal field to give
the receiver time to recycle.
Failure to follow these directions exactly, may
result in the Computer Collar receiver not activating
properly. To maintain optimum performance, we recommend that you periodically test the battery.
Signal Field Wire Specifications
Signal field wire is solid or stranded copper, insulated wire, which carries a harmless radio signal.
There is no hazard in touching or exposing the wire
because the wire carries only low voltage electricity.
Some installations are unique. The following
measurements are guidelines for typical Invisible
Barrier® signal field wire installations.

Important Warnings
1. WARNING: Occasionally an animal
cannot be trained to avoid crossing the
Invisible Boundary ®. Sometimes even a properly
trained animal may cross the boundary.
Therefore, Invisible Technologies, Inc, Invisible
Fence Distributors and Dealers cannot guarantee
that the system will, in all cases, keep Customer's
animal within the established boundary.
Accordingly, if Customer has reason to believe that
his or her animal may pose a danger to others or
harm itself if it is not kept from crossing the boundaries, Customer should not rely solely upon the system to keep the animal from crossing the boundary.
2. WARNING: The control panel
component of the system includes visual
and audio signals to warn of a system malfunction,
and is therefore intended to be installed in a place
where such signals may be easily seen and heard.
If the control panel is installed in an enclosed box
or in a place not readily accessible to Customer,
Customer will forfeit the benefits of the system's
warning functions for which Invisible Technologies,
Inc, Invisible Fence Distributors and Dealers
assume no responsibility.
3. WARNING: Some persons claim that
the shock from an electronic receiver collar can
provoke an animal to become aggressive, and possibly to attack or bite.
Customer is hereby warned to be alert for growling,
snarling, biting, or other aggressive behavior by any
animal using the system, especially during training.
If any such behavior is observed, particularly if it
appears to be associated in any way with the system,
Customer should immediately stop using the system,
unplug the transmitter, and contact your local
Invisible Fence professional or Invisible
Technologies, Inc.
Reported incidents have typically involved:
1) dogs with pre-existing aggressive tendencies;
and
2) other provocation at the time of the incident.
Reports to Invisible Technologies, Inc.
alleging such incidents are rare, less than one
in 10,000, or 0.01% of the time.
