Principles of correct installation
and construction of an electric fence
- Provide for a high-quality and stable earthing.
- Provide the safety of others in public places (no conductors at head level, warning signs and voltage limiters usage).
- Use highly conductive materials. The stronger conductor, the lower resistance = better conductivity. Fences longer than 1 km in length shall be made of conductors with minimum possible resistance (lower than 1 ohm/m).
- Do not connect fencing ropes and tapes by knots only. Use special accessories, such as original connectors, etc.
- The conductors shall not be broken or rusted.
- Use hight-quality insulators only to avoid great conductivity losses.
- Use a high-voltage cable for a perfect connection of the energizer with the fence.
- Remove undesirable growth (branches, grass, etc.) from the fence regularly to avoid reduction of its performance.
- Check regularly whether the required minimum voltage is available at all places of the fence.
- Protect the energizer against effects of atmospheric electricity by inserting a lightning arrester in the fence conductor circuit.
- Never connect the electric fencing rope to a barbed wire. Animals and humans shall have a possibility to move away from the fence.
- Each part of the electric fencing system shall be always fully functional.
