Woodstream Corporation, a global manufacturer of animal control products including FiShock, Zareba and ElectroBraid brand of electronic containment systems that provide safe, economical alternatives to barbed wire fencing, now offers a Sectional Copper Ground Rod Kit that is easy to install and transport.
Conventional grounding rods are usually six to eight feet long, making them difficult to transport and install. With Zareba’s unique Sectional Copper Ground Kit, rods are supplied in two-foot copper sections that simply screw together, making the kit easy to move from one place to another and set up.
Zareba’s new kit provides superior grounding for electric fencing systems by using copper, which is viewed to be the best grounding material in the industry, due to its highly-efficient conductivity properties.
Andrea Itnyre, category development associate for the electronic containment division of Woodstream, said,“The grounding circuit is essential for the proper function of any electric fencing system.”
If an animal touches the electrically charged fence wire, it will feel the electric current as the charge is passed through its body. The charge then continues through the circuit into the earth to the ground rod and then up the ground wire to ground terminal of the charger.
Continued Itnyre,“If the fence system is not sufficiently grounded, the path of the electric current cannot be completed and the animal will not feel the shock. Proper installation of the ground circuit is crucial since the earth provides half of the electric field circuit.”
The Sectional Copper Ground Rod Kit includes four two-inch copper section ground rods that screw into one another, a hardened steel tip that makes driving the rods into the ground easier, a ground rod clamp and anvil.
The new kit keeps livestock safe and secure and the fencing system functioning properly.
