How does the electric fence work ?
3 Ds Technology
The electric fence will detect any intruders when its cut or short circuited. The fence will send a signal to the energizer which will then trigger alarm resulting in a loud siren. The siren will then alert the owner of the property or armed response if your fence is linked. Finally this loud annoying sound usually send away intruders as they fear being caught onsite with neighbors also with local security.
The electric fence has got a very high deterrent effect to intruders. The basic idea that it’s a barrier that they need to go through first before meeting alarm beams, cctv and dogs is just a frustration to thieves. The electric fence circulates an average of 5000 v to 9000 v non-lethal voltage. This voltage gives a shock that is strong enough to deter someone from touching. Noteworthy this voltage does not kill but besides that it can temporarily paralyze the affected body parts for a period of about 20 to 30 minutes.
Electric fence delays intrusion by getting the intruders to spend some time finding ways of getting over the fence barrier. In most cases a person with a neighbor that has electric fence when he does not have suffer more intrusion than others.
Types of electric fence installations.
- Domestic electric fencing.
This basically refers to those installations at homes and small holdings. The fence is usually installed on top of the wall although is some instances it can be free standing. A properly installed electric fence will ensure better security to the user.
- Commercial electric fencing.
In most cases this type of fence is done on commercial property or large residential property. These properties usually require high security installations. Electric fence zoning in these fences is very important. A fence with multiple zones allows the user to monitor intrusion or faults easily. From two zones up to 20 electric fence zones per Energizer.
- Farm and game electric fencing
Most applications in this category involves very long distance fencing. These installation serves both security and animal management systems. Special installation skills must be used to achieve high level of security and animal management. Multiple electric fence zones help a lot in these installations.
What does an ideal electric fence deliver.
- It is important that the fence is safe to pets and kids of the end user. At most we become so irritated with the criminals that we forget our safety as users. Electric fence release a high pulsed voltage which can cause harm to kids or pets.
- High voltage of a minimum of 6000V at any point. Electric fence voltage is subject to resistance and as such, a low resistance conductor must be used. In the view of Security a fence that shocks hard at any given point is preferable.
- Equally and well tensioned wires. Before the electric fence can shock someone it must be a physical barrier. This can only be achieved by a proper tension given to the wires.
- Alert intrusion or faults. One of the functions of an electric fence is to inform the user of intrusion or faults. A siren should be installed at a point where the user can hear it.
- Fence monitoring and intrusion detection systems. With heightening crime rate a lot of technology has been introduced to detect intrusion. These systems sense both pulling and cutting of wires.
- The electric fence must leave minimal or no gap at all to allow intrusion. The installation needs to leave no space for someone to go through it lest it becomes useless.
- Proper electric fence zoning. In long distant electric fence, zoning is very important and a properly labeled zone naming provided. In the event of faults or intrusion it is not easy to get the problem area on an unzoned fence. A zoned fence also allows the security personnel to go to the exact place of intrusion.
