Earth stakes - the most important and often underestimated accessories

Earth stakes are the most important accessories in the electric fence and must always be sufficiently and appropriately dimensioned for the energiser. PATURA earth stakes are made of galvanised angle iron and are supplied including a stainless steel screw for connecting the earth cable. How many earth stakes are required for which PATURA energiser can be found in the tables for the energiser.

If the earth system of an energiser is inadequate, current can be measured between the earth stake and the surrounding soil or an electric shock can be felt when touching the earth system. The earth system of an energiser should be checked at the time of installation and with permanently installed energisers at least once a year (preferably during dry soil conditions). The procedure for checking the earthing can be found under the item "Practical tip".

Practical tip

Test procedure for checking the earthing:

  • Short circuit the fence by putting steel posts into the ground approximately 100 m away from the energiser, and lay them against the fence wires. This should lower the fence voltage to 2000 volts.
  • Use a digital voltmeter and insert its earth probe into the ground approx. 1 m away from the energiser's last earth stake. Touch the energiser’s last earth stake with the measurement contact of the digital voltmeter.
  • The digital voltmeter indicates the earth voltage when the energiser is switched on.
    • 0 to 200 volts (0.2 kV display): the earthing is perfect.
    • 200 to 600 V (0.2 kV to 0.6 kV display): the earthing is still acceptable.
    • Over 600 volts: the earthing needs to be improved by adding more and, if necessary, longer earth stakes.
  • This will increase the fence voltage and the safety of the fence.
