What is the electric fence for?

The electric fence is used to keep wild animals such as wild boars, deer, foxes, etc. away. The purpose of electric fences is to protect the area from unpleasant invasions. It is also used to contain animals such as cows, sheep, pigs etc. inside fences. It has nothing to do with hunting. We have all the legal certificates to make and sell electric fences. This is the only legal solution for those who want to protect their plantations.

Is the electric fence dangerous for people?

The electric fence for animals is not dangerous for people or animals..

Gemi electric fences comply with the 60635-2-76 regulation signed by the Italian Electrotechnical Committee (Comitato Elettrotecnico Italiano) specific for electric fences, which establishes the values to abide by.

What do I need for an electric fence for boars and other animals?

To build an electric fence for animals you need: an energiser for fences that carries electricity to the fence, an energised wire conductor and insulators for electric fences screwed onto the posts to hold the wire.

You can find all products and accessories in the specific section:

The 6 mm² wire is the electric fence wire suitable for wild boar, or should I buy the polytape?

The 6mm² wire conductor is suitable for wild boar and large animals.

It has a tensile strength up to 100kg, 8 wire conductors and dissipation of 0.15 ohm/mt.

On the other hand, polytape is suitable for electric fences for horses because it is thicker and more visible than the wire.

What wire conductor is recommended for horses?

For horses, polytape is recommended, because it is wide and very visible.

I have to make a fence, which wire do you recommend?

The 2,2 mm² thick wire conductor is suitable for small animals and small electric fences. E.g: Sheep, goats, porcupines, rabbits, wolves, dogs, cats, chickens, foxes, peacocks, turkeys, hares, moles, badgers, weasels, squirrels.

The 4 mm² thick wire conductor is suitable for medium-large animals.

E.g: Breeding pigs, fallow deer, etc.. The 6mm² thick electric wire for fences, having a current leakage of 0.15 ohm/mt, allows you to fence several km, and is suitable for large animals.

E.g: Wild boars, deer, cows, mouflons, bears, etc...

What comes in the fence energiser package?

The E220 model with 220 V provides: grounding cable and cable with tweezers to be connected to the fence. With the B12/2 model operating on rechargeable battery + 220 V, we provide a 220 V power supplier, cables for connection to the car battery (positive and negative), a grounding cable and a cable with tweezers to be connected on the fence.

How to ground the electric fence? How many posts should be placed in the ground?

Grounding is a fundamental thing for the operation of the electric fence for animals, so we recommended to do it properly.

In order to have the total discharge of current from the energiser, it is necessary to ground 3 1 m galvanized posts.

They must be placed 3 m away, 80 cm in the ground (wet) and 20 cm outside, to be then connected with the green and yellow cable.

Together with the electric fence, we provide only 1 m of cable that must be connected to the first post.

We recommend to do it where there is vegetation, so a damp ground. Parched land is not conductive. According to tests, placing 3 posts in any type of ground, you will not have any problem with the functionality.

If you place a single post, the perceived current power will be less than its capacity and the animals will be able to cross the fence.

How long does a battery for the portable energiser last, and which one should I use?

For a B12/2 energiser, it is enough to use a 12V 40Ah car battery. If there is no dissipation within the electric fence, battery life is about 10/12 days. Otherwise, the battery life is reduced by several days.

How many wires and at what distance should I put the wires of the electric fence?

The number of wires and the distance inside the electric fence depends on the size of the animal. . Here is an approximate diagram that dispels any doubt:

Electricity is a bit far from the electric fence for animals, what should I do?

If the electricity is far away from the electric fence, we have the high voltage cable which can operate outside or underground, without discharging. With this cable, you can bring electricity to the fence without any leakage. The electric fence cable can also be used to connect 2 fences, then connecting one end to a first fence and the other end to a second fence, when there is little distance between one fence and the other.

What is the maximum distance of use of the high-voltage electric cable for fences?

The thickness of an electric cable for fences is 3 mm; it can be used for more than 100 m, but to avoid current leakage, it is recommended to use it for a maximum length of 30 - 40 m. In case it is longer, we recommend to use the wire by air..

How to make the junctions to the wire conductor for electric fences?

The junction between the two ends should be made by separating the plastic part and the metal part.

Join the two metal parts of the wires, otherwise the simple knot will create a high current leakage with the consequent interruption of the passage of electrical current.

How to lay the wire inside the electric fence insulator?

The laying of the wire must be done without wrapping 360 degrees around the insulator (the so-called "dead turn") by laying the wire in a linear manner. This allows to avoid that the wire can increase or decrease the traction on the posts, using the special tensioners and balancing springs.

How can I see if there is current on the fence?

You can use the special tools available on the market ...however, it is possible to check if there is current on the electric fence for animals even without the use of a specific tool; using a simple wooden post, you can bring the wire to the ground checking the spark.

What do the flashing lights on the electric fence energiser mean?

The warning lights flashing alternately on the electric fence energiser show the correct operation of the equipment.

Can an energiser be placed outdoors?

The energiser cannot be placed outdoors. It must be kept indoors to prevent damage due to weather.
