Replacing Electric Fence Cable and Wires - Quickly and Easily
Your electric fence energiser should last a number of years, but it does require a bit of maintenance. Aside from the obvious battery replacements, you will likely have to replace the leads that go on to the fence and on to the earth stake. These wires get exposed to the elements and pushed and pulled about - eventually becoming brittle and possibly snapping. If your fence isn't working as well as it should, one of the first items to check is these leads.
If you do need new leads for your electric fence energiser, you may be able to purchase exact replacements for the ones that came with your energiser. However, they are not always available and can be quite expensive. Another, often cheaper, option is to use high voltage lead out cable. This is double insulated high voltage wire, designed for use with electric fences. It can go under gateways, join to runs of electric fence and it can also be used to go from the energiser to the fence and from the energiser to the earth stake.
High voltage lead out cable comes in rolls of either 10 metres, 25 metres, 50 metres and 100 metres. To use the wire you cut a little more than the total length required. You then use a knife to strip back some of the plastic casing on either end of the wire, exposing about 5 inches of wire. You wrap this wire around your energiser terminals and around whatever you are connecting the energiser to (the earth stake, the fence itself, a crocodile clip or a solar panel). It's that easy! And you can store any left over wire for future use.
This wire is especially designed to conduct the high voltages output from the mains powered energiser to start of your electric fence.
If you need to join two lengths of wire, this is easily done. However, if you have made a join and then run the wire underground, please use an electrical resin box to ensure there is no electrical leakage.
High Voltage Lead out Wire starts at £14.54 (plus VAT) for a 10 metre roll.
