Which conductor material do I need for my fence?

Fence wire resistance
In order to achieve a maximum shock effect, not only a sufficient impulse energy but also a well electrically conductive fence material is necessary so that the energy reaches the animal without great losses and does not "fizzle out" beforehand. The line resistance is a measure for the evaluation of fencing material. It is given in ohms per metre. The smaller this value, the better the material conducts. The longer the fence, the better the conductivity of the material used must be. Best materials have a resistance of < 0.5 Ω/m, worse ones over 1 Ω/m.

TriCOND conductor material
TriCOND conductor wires
have been tested intensively over the last few years and have shown long durability. The low resistance of TriCOND wires and the associated high shock effect result in an excellent price/performance ratio.

What do I have to consider when choosing my conductor material?

For long fences, look for high quality conductor material. If you cannot regularly clear your fence of vegetation, a very good conducting conductor material is extremely important. You should also connect the individual rows of conductors every 100 - 150 m to ensure an optimal current flow

Rust on insulators and connectors as well as knots in the conductor material increase the resistance of the current flow considerably: as a result, less energy arrives and the fence loses massive efficiency and deterrence against the wolf! Therefore, always use stainless steel connectors from Litzclip for connecting and repairing.

Expert tip:

The lower the resistance in Ω/m, the better the conductivity.

We recommend our One-Hand Drop Aid as an aid for attaching the ladder material. If the ladder material is rolled up again later because the fence is being moved, it also provides support here and protects the ladder material at the same time.
