Earth cables for electric fence grounding

Earth cables play a vital role in electric fencing systems on farms as they help keep livestock contained within designated areas. Earth cable (also known as grounding cable, lead out cable or earth wire), is used for grounding or earthing purposes in your electric fence. Its primary function is to provide a path for electrical current to safely dissipate into the ground in the event of a fault or surge. Earth cables are used to protect energisers from damage from electrical surges. These cables and wires carry power from the energiser unit to the fence line, to the earth stake or earth rod and also for any other electric fence connections such as line to line, through vegetation etc.

Variety in earthing cables

Each type of earth cable or wire used for underground connections in electric fencing on farms has its own characteristics, benefits, and considerations.  Insulated lead-out cables consist of copper or aluminium conductors encased in insulation material. They are designed to carry electrical current from the energiser to the fence and are often used for above-ground connections as well. We can highly recommend this type of insulation as it provides protection against environmental factors, such as moisture, sunlight, and physical damage, ensuring reliable performance and longevity. 

Steel wire for electric fencing consists of galvanised steel. It comes in various thicknesses and strengths, depending on your needs. This is an economical option for long fence lines or large farm areas. Steel wire conducts electricity well but can be prone to rust over time, especially in humid or corrosive environments. That is why this type of cable is often pushed through a plastic encasing. And it's less flexible compared to other materials, which may require additional effort during installation. We also offer additional accessories like our lead-out cable connectors which provide connections between different lead-out cables to prevent power loss.

In conclusion, the choice between insulated lead-out cables and steel wire for underground grounding connections in electric fencing on farms depends on many factors mentioned above. Farmers should consider their specific needs and preferences when selecting the most suitable option for their fencing requirements. If you require help deciding the best grounding solution, we are here to provide support
