What is solar fencing?
How does it work?
What are all the advantages and where can we use solar fencing?
Solar fencing emits a short, sharp, but safe shock to prevent animals from coming into contact with the fence. Once an animal in the herd receives a shock, the others avoid contact with the solar fence.
When an animal touches the Solar fence, it closes an electric circuit by grounding. Then an impulse travels through the body of the animal causing sudden muscle spasms and lasts for 1-3 milliseconds. This vibration is painful but very safe. After experiencing the shock, the animal will never try to cross the solar fence again.
Solar fencing system working principle A solar fencing system works by converting sunlight into direct current (DC), which is then used to charge the system’s battery.
In general, the system’s battery can last up to 24 hours a day depending on sunlight hours and capacity. The output of the charged battery reaches the controller or charger or energizer. When powered, the energizer gives a brief yet sharp voltage.
Solar fencing can be used for a variety of purposes, including:
Domestic applications such as at residential homes
In factories, for example, industrial applications
Farming applications such as in farms and forests
as well as schools and hospitals.
