Proper Grounding

 

The grounding circuit is a critical component of your electric fence and is essential to its proper functioning. The charger, or energizer, is designed to alter the electric charge into a power that is safe for animals and people.

 

When an animal touches the electrically charged fence wire, the animal feels the electric current as the charge passes through its body. The charge then continues the circuit through the earth to the ground rod and then up the ground wire to the ground terminal of the charger.

 

 

 

 

ONE WIRE SYSTEM

 

When only charged wires run the perimeter of the fence, this is called a one wire system. If you have a small area, with one or two strands of wire, a one wire system is what you should use.

One wire systems can also be used when adding on to an existing fence. Running a charged strand of wire on the top of a non-electrified fence will keep your livestock from reaching over the fence and damaging it. This method can be used on barbed or woven wire fence as well.

TWO WIRE SYSTEM

 

A two wire ground system should be used if there are more than three strands of wire on the fence. The two strand system allows the animal to complete the circuit by touching a charged wire and a ground wire at the same time. The strands on the fence must alternate between a ground wire and a charged wire: one charged, one ground, and then charged, etc.

If you have a large area that needs to be fenced in, this system is ideal. It is also great to contain animals with long hair, or wool, and areas with sandy or rocky soil. Grounding this system is simple. The wires that are grounded will connect directly to the grounding rod or grounding terminal on the charger. The charged wires are connected to the terminal on the charger.
