Introduction:

Electric fences are simply a fence containing one of more live wires charged with a voltage capable of delivering a shock, and therefore forming a barrier to animals (including humans). While lethal voltage has been used, these pages are dedicated to the non-lethal kind which delivers a mild but memorable shock.
Electric fences have been widely used in agriculture in developed countries since the 1960's. Due the lighter material requirements, electric fences are typically less expensive to erect than standard farm fences. Internal fencing can be as simple as a single wire.
Perhaps the earliest mention of an electric fence was by Jules Verne in his novel 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea written in 1875. Of interest is that Verne envisaged it as a security device for the Nautilus, his idea is now in everyday use with perimeter security being the second most common use after agriculture.
While not being what we engineers would call "high tech" electric fences are complex enough to cause headaches when things go wrong. That's where Electricfence.net can help. Hopefully we have the answers to your questions, and if not we can point you to someone who has.
