Grüner Pfeil mit Buchstabe E für Weidezaun Komponente Erdung


In the electric fence system's circuit, the ground serves as a return conductor. Therefore, this system only works reliably with properly installed grounding. If the grounding is inadequate, less current flows when the animal comes into contact with it and the deterrent effect on the animal is reduced accordingly. Earth rods must be driven into soil that is as moist as possible (e.g. not directly on the building under the roof!).
Ground rods should preferably be made of cross or T-section or of tubular material (diameter at least 10 mm).
Ground rods should be permanently corrosion-resistant, i.e. preferably made of hot-dip galvanised steel or stainless steel. All connections in the grounding area must be corrosion-resistant and firmly screwed or clamped. The length of the ground rod must be dimensioned in such a way that deeper, moist earth layers can be reached. The number of ground rods recommended depends on the power class of the unit. The more ground rods, the better and the deeper in the soil, the better.
Ground rods should be at least 1m deep in moist (overgrown) soil - 3 ground rods at a distance of approx. 3m can be used as a rule of thumb. The minimum number of ground rods required is indicated with each fencer.
