5 Benefits of Electric Fence Systems Installation You Should Know

Electric Fence System Benefits

  • Electric fencing offers a safer alternative than conventional barrier fences such as barbed wire and woven wire. It’s less harmful than many fence types, which routinely cut, gouge and scrape livestock, leading to expensive vet bills and production losses.
  • The various systems available give you flexibility to design the enclosure you need, whether a permanent, semi-permanent or portable application to work in most environments or geographical conditions.
  • Electric fence systems install quickly with minimal standard tools, saving on time and labor whether you hire out the job or do it yourself.
  • Cost savings of an electric fence are significant when compared to other fencing options such as wood, rail, vinyl, woven wire or barbed wire.
  • Most animals are strong enough to escape through physical barriers. A psychological deterrent, like electric fence, improves effectiveness of existing barriers.

How is electric fence system installation done?

Installing an electric fence system requires careful planning and following safety guidelines to ensure that the system functions properly and doesn’t pose a danger to people or animals. Here are some general steps to follow:

  1. Determine the perimeter: Decide on the perimeter where the electric fence will be installed and mark the corners and end points.
  2. Select the electric fence charger: The charger or energizer is the heart of the electric fence system. Choose a charger that is appropriate for the size of your fence and the type of animals you are trying to contain.
  3. Install the charger: The charger should be installed in a protected location, such as a barn or shed. It should be grounded properly according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
  4. Install the fence posts: The fence posts should be installed at regular intervals along the perimeter of the fence. Make sure that they are sturdy and secure.
  5. Run the wires: Run the wires between the posts, making sure that they are properly spaced and tightened. Use insulators to keep the wires from touching the posts.
  6. Connect the wires to the charger: Connect the wires to the charger according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Be sure to use appropriate connectors and wire sizes.
  7. Test the system: Test the system to make sure that it is functioning properly. Use a voltage tester to check the voltage of the wires.
  8. Install warning signs: Install warning signs around the perimeter of the fence to alert people and animals to the presence of the electric fence.

Remember to always follow the manufacturer’s instructions and safety guidelines when installing an electric fence system. If you are not comfortable installing the system yourself, consider hiring a professional. At Dataworld Systems, we have professionals ready to help you.

How does an Electric Fence System work?

How does an Electric Fence System work?

An electric fence system uses a charger or energizer to send short, high-voltage electrical pulses through a wire or series of wires. When an animal or person touches the wire, they complete the electrical circuit and receive a brief shock. The shock is intended to deter the animal or person from attempting to cross the fence.

The electrical charge is created by a transformer within the charger, which takes a low voltage, high amperage AC current from a power source such as a battery, solar panel, or mains electricity and converts it into a high voltage, low amperage pulse. The high voltage pulse is sent through the wires of the fence, which are typically made of metal or a conductive material such as poly-wire or poly-tape.

When an animal or person comes into contact with the wire, the electrical charge flows through their body and they receive a brief but uncomfortable shock. The shock is not harmful, but it is enough to train the animal to avoid touching the fence in the future.

The effectiveness of the electric fence system depends on several factors, including the voltage of the electric pulses, the spacing of the wires, the conductivity of the ground, and the type of animal or person that the fence is intended to deter. A well-designed electric fence system should be able to effectively contain animals or keep intruders out while minimizing the risk of harm.
