Helmer TC 40

An electronic fence or invisible fence works on a similar principle like electronic dog collars. If the dogs approach the warning zone (i.e. close to the border they cannot cross), they are warned by an acoustic signal at first. If they do not stop, they will get a corrective impulse.

Description

An electronic fence or invisible fence works on a similar principle like electronic dog collars. If the dog approaches a zone (see below) where they are not supposed to be, they are reprimanded by an electrostatic discharge. Soon, the dogs will know where they can go and where it is prohibited. You will not be constantly worrying if the dog has run out to the street or not.

How does the Helmer TC40 electronic fence work?

The whole invisible fence system uses an electronic collar, a discharge generator and an insulated conductor. The discharge generator is provided by a standard voltage of 230 V. The voltage in the insulated conductor is only 15 V, which means that its operation is completely safe. The insulated conductor may run along the current fence up to 50 cm of height. It may also be placed under the ground to a depth of up to 10 cm, or just laid on the ground. The whole system may be extended by other collars (should you have more dogs) and the whole fence by another 400 m of insulated conductor. Have a look at our iTrainer 023 electronic fence designed for two dogs.

Electronic fence zones

At first, you delineate the area where the dogs may move using an insulated conductor (300 m long). Three zones will be established within this area:

Rest zone, where the dogs may move without any limitations.

Warning zone, where the dogs are warned by an acoustic signal (via a collar that must be worn) that they are approaching the third (reprimanding) zone. This zone may be set for a distance of 40 cm to 6 m.

Reprimanding zone, where the dogs are reprimanded by an electric discharge (from the collar). The discharge is safe, though not pleasant for the dogs. This zone may be set from 30 cm to 1.5 m. The dogs will soon recognize the connection between the electrostatic discharge and the area they cannot enter. That’s why they will stay in the defined space.
