Electric Fencing

An electric fence is a FIRST LINE OF DEFENSE barrier that uses electric shocks to deter animals or people from crossing a boundary. The voltage of the shock may have effects ranging from uncomfortable, to painful or even lethal. Electric fences are designed to create an electrical circuit when touched by a person or animal.

A component called an energizer converts power into a brief high voltage pulse. One terminal of the energizer releases an electrical pulse along a connected bare wire bout once per second. Another terminal is connected to a metal rod implanted in the earth, called a ground or earth rod. A person or animal touching both the wire and the earth during a pulse will complete an electrical circuit and will conduct the pulse, causing an uncomfortable electric shock.

The effects of the shock depends upon the voltage, the energy of the pulse, the degree of contact between the recipient and the fence and ground and the route of the current through the body; it can range from barely noticeable to uncomfortable, painful or for some fences even lethal. The quality of installation is a major contributing factor in determining the effectiveness of the electric fence.
