16 An electric fence system consists of: A) An electric fence unit that generates regular electric pulses. B) One or more wires that transport electricity (although these do not necessarily have to form a closed loop). C) Insulators that isolate the electricity from earth. D) Permanent or mobile posts that can be used as required. E) The earth of the electric fence unit, which should be buried as deep as possible in damp soil. If the animal touches the wire, an electric circuit is closed, i.e. the electric current flows through the animal and the earth back to the unit. The animal consequently receives an unpleasant, though harmless, electric shock and retreats. An electric fence system of this kind is used successfully to pen animals in and also to keep other animals out. Make sure there are at least 2500 V at every point of the fence. A) Electric fence unit B) Conductor material C) Insulators D) Posts E) Ground posts This is how an electric fence system works!
17 Earth The earth is an important part of the power circuit. To ensure the current can flow from the earth back to the unit unhindered, the earth rod must have the best possible contact with the soil (dry earth barely conducts electricity). Therefore, when inserting the earth rod, choose damp places where possible, or choose earth rods that are sufficiently long to reach deeper, damp layers of earth. Shock voltage and pulse energy The peak of an electric pulse generated by an electric fence unit is known as shock voltage. A high voltage is needed to create a conductive ‘channel’ between the fence wire and the animal’s body. The minimum voltage is around 2500 V. For animals with a thick coat, we recommend 4000 V minimum. The current (pulse energy) can now flow through this ‘channel’. Therefore, the shock effect depends on the amount of pulse energy (voltage itself does not hurt!). The more insensitive the animal is, the greater the energy needed to secure or scare it. The demand for pulse energy also increases with the length of the fence and its load (e.g. vegetation). The more energy a unit emits, the higher its energy consumption. We therefore advise care when choosing your pulse energy, especially with battery-powered units. Fence Resistance as well as sufficient impulse energy, you also need highly conductive fence material to achieve the maximum shock possible and to make sure that there is minimum loss in the energy delivered to the animal, and no energy fade beforehand. The conductor resistance is a measure for assessing the fence material. It is specified in Ohm/meter. The smaller this value, the better the material conducts. The longer the fence, the better must be the conductivity of the chosen material. The best materials have a resistance < 1 Ω/m; poorer materials exceed 4 Ω/m. Investigations have shown that, in addition to very good conductivity, which is achieved mostly by copper wire, long-term durability (e.g. by means of stainless steel wires with poor conductivity) is decisive for the security of an electric fence. Here, our proven TriCOND material provides the necessary compromise, and is renowned for outstanding conductivity combined with extended durability. What kilometre figures should you base your decision on? Kilometre figures are often highly theoretical values that are based on the best possible conditions (wire conductivity, connections, insulation status, ground conditions, earthing) in the fence system. These conditions change constantly, however, due to the influences of weather. It is therefore important to achieve the minimum protective voltage of 2,500 Volt at each point of the fence system in all conditions. Explanation of technical terms
18 When keeping domestic pigs, an exterior, wild animal density fence (metal hinge joint fencing) is required in addition to the interior electric fence!

19 Choosing your electric fence unit 230 V power energisers – the FIRST CHOICE if a mains socket is available. These units have an unlimited protection period. They are available in all of the necessary power classes and are they best means of delivering the energy required (0.5 Joule up to 14.5 Joule output) on long fences or fences with vegetation, or for very robust animals. The higher energies of course do not harm the animals. All fence devices comply with applicable safety standards. If mobile use is intended, e.g. at tournaments, on trail or distance rides or simply on frequently changing pastures where there is no 230 Volt power supply available, you must resort to a battery-powered unit. For fences with heavier vegetative growth, 9 Volt compact solar units are inadequate and 12 Volt units must be used. 12 V battery-powered units – strong performance even on fences with heavier vegetation. 12 V battery units are ideal for very robust animals, long fences and/or fences with vegetation if no 230 V connection is available. The discharge energy is comparable to that of power energisers (output approx. 0.5 to 5 joules). Rechargeable 12 V wet batteries are used as the power source, which must be recharged every 2 – 4 weeks or so depending on the type of device, power requirements and battery type. Solar modules, which convert solar energy into electricity and therefore constantly top up the 12 V battery, are a good add-on. 12/230 V DUO units – maximum flexibility combined with powerful output energies! Units of this type combine the unlimited security time of the 230 V units with the mobility of powerful 12 V units. A 12 V cable and 230 V adapter are included. 9 V dry battery units – the ideal units for smaller fences and paddocks! 9 V battery units are suitable for shorter fence lengths without vegetation. They are highly mobile and significantly lighter than 12 V units. The 9 V battery runs for a few months and can even cover an entire pasture season depending on the operating time, battery type and size (expressed in Ah – the more Ah (ampere hours), the longer it runs for). Once discharged, it cannot be recharged. 9 V units (even if these can also be operated with 12 V batteries) are weaker than 12 V units. 9 V units in this instance typically deliver approx. 0.15 to 0.35 joules. High-impact 9 V units can deliver up to 0.55 joules. Compact Solar Units Compact solar units from the CLASSIC range – similar to 9 volt devices for smaller fences without vegetative growth, or: AKO SunPOWER from the PREMIUM and EXPERT range = extremely powerful, mobile compact solar units. Crystalline solar modules in combination with our high-performance solar fence devices are able to supply power to fences which are many kilometres in length. Even after a whole week without direct sunlight, these fence devices still have sufficient power to supply your fence with sufficient current. These special devices are outstandingly suited for fencing relatively large areas. Sufficient voltage is supplied everywhere along the fence, without the requirement for a socket anywhere nearby! The 12-Volt AGM battery is integrated, and is constantly charged via the solar module built into the housing. If the battery has to be topped up, it can be recharged using the 230 volt mains adapter supplied.

Output Joules Output Energy Joules Foal Protection Switch This voltage is reached with a low fence charge. Voltage when no fence system is connected to the electric fencer device. Voltage at a fence charge of 500 Ohm. Energy absorbed by device. The electric fender efficiency ratio yields the relevant discharge energy value for the user. Maximum energy transmitted from the device to the fence system. This pulse is also identified as shock strength. Minimum energy transmitted from the device to the fence system. This can be reached through a fence output with reduced power or through selecting the lowest power level of an electric fencer device. Users can activate the foal protection switch as needed. If an animal should get caught in the fence, a considerably prolonged pulse interval (up to 60 sec.) does not excessively stress the animal and also increases the likelihood of it freeing itself. In parallel, the device emits an acoustic and visual alarm. Explanation of symbols In order to enable electricity to flow freely from the ground to the device, optimal contact should be ensured between the earthing rod and soil (dry soil is a poor electricity conductor). The earthing rod (which must be galvanised) should therefore be driven into a damp area, or the length of the earthing rod should be measured to ensure that deeper, damper soil layers are reached. The recommended number of earthing rods depends on the power class of the device. The following resistance can be identified in a fence system: Earthing resistance => should be as low as possible Conductive material resistance => displayed in Ohm/metres. The smaller this value, the better the material‘s conductivity. The conductivity requirements of the material used increase with the length of the fence. The best materials have a resistance smaller than 0.25 Ω/m. Isolator resistance => should be as high as possible

Number of Electrifiable Nets Quantity Voltage Supply 230 V Volts Voltage Supply 12 V or 12 V Solar Volts Voltage Supply 230 V or 12 V Volts Voltage Supply 9 V Volts Voltage Supply 2 x 1.5 V Volts Power Consumption mA Explanation of symbols Devices with power supplies (230 V) have an unlimited protection duration. These are available in all necessary power classes and are the best solution for power provision to long fences. Even in the event of heavy vegetation, sufficient energy is supplied to the fence. With fence lengths in accordance with VDE, only a theoretical value is given, which, as a result of various influences (fence flora, weather and soil conditions) cannot be reached in practice. Flora on the fence has a considerable influence on the max. fence length for an electric fence device. The more vegetation on the fence, the higher the fence charge will be, thus reducing the max. fence length. The fence length indications refer to highly conductive wire material and connectors, good isolators and an optimal earthing system! For 230 V and 12 V devices, the maximum number of 50 m lines to be used is given. 12 Volt battery chargers are the ideal solution for long fences or fences with considerable amounts of vegetation in the event that no power supply is available. The discharge energy can be compared to the power supply units. Rechargeable 12 Volt wet cells are used as a source of power. A useful addition are solar modules, which are offered in a range of power classes and transform solar energy into electricity. This type of device combines the unlimited protection duration of the 230 Volt devices with the mobility of the powerful 12 Volt devices. The 9 Volt dry battery devices are characterised by their excellent mobility, coupled with a long battery life. They are ideal for short fences with moderate vegetation if no power supply is available. 3 Volt devices are mobile and easy to handle, and are suitable for fences without vegetation, such as in gardens or horse-training paddocks. The duration of the battery life can be calculated from the energy consumption along with the capacity of the battery.
