You know that an electric fence is a great way to protect your property, and to keep your livestock safe and secure. But, did you also know that any electric fence is only as good as its grounding system. In fact, in most cases, when a fence is not working, the problem can be traced back to improper grounding. Professional fence builders know that there are challenges when buying and installing conventional grounding rods. That is because typical grounding rods are usually 6 to 8 feet long - making them difficult to transport and difficult to install. How it Works: The grounding circuit is a critical component of your electric fence and is essential for it to function properly. The charger, or energizer, is designed to alter the electric charge into a power that is safe for animals and people. If the animal and the ground terminal of the charger are not sufficiently grounded, the path of electric current cannot be completed and the animal will not feel the shock. Since earth provides half of the electric field circuit, it is crucial to have a properly installed ground circuit.
