How does it work?
An electric fence is based on three components:
The energiser sends brief, high voltage pulses of electrical current down the fence line. When an animal touches the wire, its body closes the circuit, allowing the electricity to flow down to the ground and back to the energiser. The pulse only lasts for a fraction of a second, so the animal only feels a very brief shock, and moves away from the fence immediately.
