Instant Solution Dog Electric Fence
Control your dogs without any training or special collars
The Pingg-String “Ground Barrier” (illustrated below) can be used to stop dogs damaging garden beds and keep dogs away from fences to stop digging under or climbing over.
The Ground Barrier may be installed at several locations in the garden. Sections are connected together using a special insulated cable. A single Pingg-String energiser can power many sections.
You can also construct a multi-wire barrier for small animals, such as cats and possums. The Pingg-String Ground Barrier is an effective solution to many animal problems!
The Pingg-String Ground Barrier is powered by the Pingg-String Solar Energiser (sold separately).
Pingg-String Design Flexibility
Every installation is different which is why the Pingg-String can be ordered as components. Order your Pingg-String Energiser plus the fencing components you need.
When ordering this 70m Ground Barrier Kit, simply measure the total distance of the barrier you want to create and make sure you order enough 70m kits to cover that distance.
Note: One Pingg-String Energiser can power up to 400m (1350ft) of 1-Wire barrier, 140m (670ft) of 3-Wire barrier or 80m (260ft) of 5-Wire barrier. You can build bigger installations but you'll need additional energisers each powering its own separate section less than its maximum distance capacity.
The Pingg-String Ground Barrier System
Mini fence barrier demonstration
This illustration is a mini “Ground Barrier” using 3 wires through which we will demonstrate the sequence of installation. Typical installation is a single wire.
60cm long pushed 10cm into soil. If the soil is hard, soak to a depth of 10cm. If necessary you may use a mallet or hammer to insert the post into the soil but take care not to damage the end of the post. Space the posts 1m to 3m apart, closer for curves and longer for straights.
Rubber Wire Holders
Slide onto the posts to keep the Pingg-Wire in place. One or more wire holders can be used and the heights are fully adjustable. Each wire holder has a groove where the Pingg-Wire is held. Only on the end posts is the Pingg-Wire tied. Otherwise wrap the Pingg-Wire 360 degrees around the groove and continue from post to post until the end post is reached
Green End Caps
Protect the exposed end of the fibreglass posts.
These are tied to a firm structure (eg. fence, building, etc) using builder’s string (or similar - not included). This will maintain tension in the Pingg-Wires. The illustration shows a secondary post being used as a tie-off anchor point.
Make electrical connections with insulated cable. The wires within the cable are tightly wrapping around the Pingg-Wire. Remove 3-4cm of insulation off the cable and twist it around the Pingg-Wire over a distance of 1-2cm.
Bury the 50cm Ground Stake 40cm deep into soil. Cut a length of insulated cable to go between the ground stake and the negative terminal of the Pingg-String Energiser. Remove 1cm of insulation from each end. For a 3-Wire fence cut a second length of cable to connect the negative Pingg-String Wire and the Ground Stake. Unscrew the terminal on the Ground Stake. Twist the wires together, place into the terminal and screw tight. Test that the cable(s) cannot be pulled out.
Connect the positive and negative of the fence to the corresponding red and green terminals of the Pingg-Energiser using lengths of insulated cable.
