Type VI-A Electrofisher

The Smith-Root Type VI-A is a heavy-duty 5kW electrofisher for use with your own generator. It is designed for use in large bodies of water or in low to medium-high conductivity waters.



The Type VI-A offers selectable AC (at 60Hz) or pulsed DC (at 60Hz or 120Hz) output.

The Type VI-A electrofisher can be powered by any 240 volt AC generator (optional 120VAC input available).


Input circuit protection is by magnetic-hydraulic circuit breaker, and the output circuit protection is by a fast-acting fuse. Electrofisher power transformer isolated for safety.

Both foot and hand switch must be simultaneously activated for power output.


The Type VI-A is housed in a rugged, splash-proof aluminum case with a glass windowed top for closed-lid operation.
