How does an electric fence work?

The electric fence consists of an electric energizer and a fence set out by poles and conductors. The electric energizer supplies the fence line with current pulses. These pulses are characterized by high voltage and very short duration (less than 0.0003 sec.).
However electric shock is very annoying and animals quickly learn to respect the fence.
An electric fence is not only a physical but also a mental obstacle.

10 principles for the correct functioning of the fence

You should follow these principles, if you want to have a safe electric fence.

  1. Quality fencee energizer with suitable impulse strength.
  2. Keep fence clear, free of vegetation such as grass, shrubs and branches. Otherwise the pulses are "diverted" into the ground, reducing the efficiency of the fence and excessive battery consumption (especially for battery types).
  3. Ensure perfect earthing. At least 1 m deep or in several places. It is advisable to choose the dampest possible location - the conductivity increases. Use stainless, well-conducting metal. Ensure a conductive connection between the ground rods and between the pulse source itself, including the contacts on the device.
  4. Use original connectors. Do not connect wires by knots. In an emergency use at least a soft binding wire to support the connection. The fence wires must not be interrupted anywhere.
  5. Use only well-conducting material. The use of low-resistance conductors is necessary especially for long fences (over 2 km of conductor).
  6. The conductor and especially the ground rod must not be rusty - the rust insulates.
  7. Use tapes for horses grazeings, not wire. The tape is more visible and does not cut.
  8. Find a good connection between the energizer and the fence. Use a high voltage cable for a perfect connection.
  9. For battery energizers check the battery level regularly.
  10. Keep in mind that you must measure a minimum voltage of 2000 V anywhere in the fence. This value will exceed the skin resistance of the animals. For large and less sensitive animals, this value is 3000 V.

Recommended wire heights

For electric fence to be effective, it is necessary having suitable installation, which usually depends on the type of animal.
Normal installation will ensure the standard function of the fence, ie. through the ground and touching the wires closes the circuit, the animal causes a short-circuit and receives an impulse. For better functionality, stronger but still safe impulse, you can also install a minus wire in fence among ordinary plus-charge wires. The impulse then occurs when these wires are connected by the animal.

For a complete list of recommended heights and how to install the wires, see the Download - first aid.

Are your generators durable? Can it endure rain, snow or sun shining?

Yes, we manufacture all our products in such a way, that they are not harmed by ordinary weather conditions. Plastic parts are made with UV protection. All parts are thoroughly insulated and sealed with each other.

If you do not put the energizer in a puddle or it does not fall into a barrel of water, then we guarantee you watertightness.
