Fence wires need to be insulated from earth

The role of insulators is to insulate the live wire from earth. With the high voltages which are typical for an electric fence, it is important to avoid arcing from the wire to the post, and at the same time minimise any leakage current due to dampness or dirt deposits. Short circuits or discharges not only create a load for the energiser, but can also create radio interference. It should be noted that with low quality insulators, considerable time and effort is required to check them regularly and/or replace them.

The right insulator in the right place

When using insulators, it is important to use the appropriate insulator depending on the place of use. One differentiates between strain and corner insulators at the beginning and end of the fence, at places where it changes direction, and line insulators for the general fence-line. In practice, the same insulator is often used for all areas of application. Almost always, a line insulator which is designed only to withstand minimal tension, is chosen for the corners and the beginning of the fence as well. In these locations, even the slightest demands will cause them to fail.
The use of just a small number of rugged corner and strain insulators pays for itself very quickly through significantly longer-lasting fences, lower maintenance requirements and, above all, significantly greater safety.
