Poultry fence

Chickens and geese are amongst the more difficult animals to keep. A powerful energiser with a high output voltage and powerful discharge is required. If it’s not possible for you to use a mains powered device, we recommend a powerful 9 V battery device or even better – a powerful 12 V battery unit with high voltage and pulse energy. Normal fences requires several rows of wire. Special plastic posts and high-conductance wires are also available for this type of fence. Very powerful energisers are needed when using poultry nettings e.g. the 50 m poultry netting, 112 cm.

Fence height

Four rows should be arranged on electric fences at heights of approx. 20?cm, 40?cm, 60?cm and 85?cm.

Fence posts

The plastic post for poultry fences, 104 cm with single point has proven to be a particularly good product. You can, of course, use any other posts that have the required fence height and necessary eyelets for connecting the conductors.

Conducting materials

The quality of the wire used should be matched with the length of the fence. For a fence that is just 200 m long the poultry fence wire strand, for example, will suffice. Longer fences require a high-quality wire to ensure there is still sufficient voltage at the far end of the fence. For a 400 m fence, a 4**** star electric fence polywire should be chosen (e.g. electric polywire 3 x 0.25 copper + 3 x 0.2 stainless steel, white / green 4****). A 5**** marking on the wire indicates top quality. The conductance of this wire is significantly better than those indicated with ** markings. This means longer fences can be built.

Energisers

230 V electric fence mains energiser

For normal fencing we recommend e.g. our great value 230 V electric fence mains energiser NV5500. Larger fences and fences with disturbances and surrounding vegetation will need the extra powerful 230 V mains energiser Nvi 9000.

Battery energisers

Operation with 12 V battery unit:
The right device here is e.g. the new a great value 12 V battery-powered electric fence energiser AV6500 or for longer fences e.g. the very powerful 12 V battery-powered electric fence energiser Avi 8000.

Operation with a 9 V battery unit:
For shorter fencing, an energiser such as the 9 V electric fence battery-powered energiser Extra Power will suffice. The 9 V / 12 V electric fence battery-powered energiser BV 2600 (incl. battery) would be even better.

Grounding

The mains energiser requires a good grounding connection to ensure it operates without any disruption. The number of grounding posts requires is specified in the technical data for the energiser. Further information can be found under "Weidezaun - Tips", in the GROUNDING chapter.

Testers

Various testing devices exist for checking the operational status of the fence. For simple measurements, a device like the "8-step" fence tester (Item no. 44700) is sufficient.

One of the best devices available is the iFence Inspektor. This has a directional indicator to guide you straight to the faulty point in the fence. Anyone who's ever had to search out a fault on a fence system will appreciate just how much time this device saves.

A fence switch is extremely handy in situations in which the fence requires any repair work. This allows portions of the fence to be turned off so that the faulty part can be repaired without danger.

Fence switches

These allow the current to be turned off so that you can safely work on the fence without having to make a long walk to the mains energiser. E.g. Item no. 44731 fence switch, green, with red knob

Lightning protection

This is a legal requirement for 230 V mains energisers. For reasons of technical safety and in order to protect the energiser, we recommend the use of lightning protection. E.g. Item no. 44732 Lightning protection reactor with discharger. This prevents the energiser from being destroyed and any further damage from occurring if lightning strikes the electric fence. Further information can be found under "Weidezaun - Tips", in the LIGHTNING PROTECTION chapter.

Signage

It is a legal requirement that any electric fence systems placed near to public roads and pathways are clearly indicated by a warning sign according to VDE 0667. Attach clearly visible warning signs every 100 m or so and at entrances to paths and locations where an electric fence may not be expected carrying the phrase "Caution Electric Fence".(Item no. 44735)
