2. Earthing

The Basics of Earthing

An electric fence is a circuit in which current flows. The current which travels through the wire, the animal and through the ground cover into the soil, needs to flow back to the energiser with the help of earth stakes.
As the soil is a poor conductor, particularly when it is dry, sandy or stony, it is important to ensure an adequate earth system, so that the energiser can reach its full performance.

This is a typical earth system for mains energisers. Check carefully for correct earthing, as over 80 % of installed earth systems are inadequate. Please note the recommendations for the number of earth stakes in the tables for the particular energisers.
