I am guessing you are trying to ask how many feet or miles of wire you can attach to your electric fence source?
Well, it depends on the output charge of your source. There should be some sort of voltage label and some sort of "covers X miles" on the source.
You have to properly match your electric fence source to the amount of feet or miles of fenceline you want to cover, or else there won't be any "bite" left at the end of the line.
Or..... are you asking if your source needs to be right next to your fence, or can be across the yard? Again, it doesn't matter how far away your source is from your actual fencing, but you need to make sure there is enough juice in your source to fully travel the entire length of your electric fence you have set up.
