Electric Fencing

An electric fence is a barrier that uses electric shocks to deter would be intruders from accessing 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 a power energizer converts power into a brief high voltage pulse. One terminal of the power energizer releases an electrical pulse along a connected bare wire about 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 depend 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.

Electric Fencing Legislation exists to which all new, upgraded and/or repaired electric fences must comply.

Zodiac Automation is in compliance with the new legislation published on 25 March 2011 in Government Gazette No. 34154.
