Invisible Containment System
Do you need to contain your dogs within a fixed area around your property? Thenwe have the ideal solution: The PAC Electronic Fence System This system ishighly reliable; can encompass any shape of garden or estate, at very low cost;and can be hidden from view.
The PAC Electronic Fence system is ideal where you wish to contain one ormore dogs without needing an ugly and obtrusive boundary fence. Each dog thatneeds to be contained wears an active electronic collar unit. Whenever the dogis nears the boundary his collar is designed to respond to a low strength radiosignal. The boundary itself comprises an inexpensive, PVC-coated loop-wire. No-Goareas within the boundary – such as swimming pools, flower beds andchild-play-areas may be selectively excluded within the containment area, byusing a simple, wire twisting technique, locally to nullify the radiosignals.
Continuous and Automatic Surveillance
PAC’s Electronic Fence effectively gives continuous (24/7), automatic andunattended surveillance. Whenever a dog moves into the Active Zone (set by theuser, normally to 1-2 metres from the wire), his collar receives a radiosignal. The collar then emits audible, warning bleeps, and if he does notwithdraw within two seconds, the system ‘ramps-up’ to administer correctiveelectrical stimuli. The longer the dog is within the active zone; and thecloser his proximity to the wire; the greater the intensity of the deterrentstimulation. Thus, the dog self-elects to approach the boundary; andif he runs at it, the system activates immediately. Any number of dogs(each wearing a collar) can be contained.
The electronic Control Unit, which needs to be installed undercover,generates radio signals for the loop-wire. It also incorporates monitoring andadjustment of the Active Zone size (i.e. distance from the wire); standbybatteries to keep the system running in the event of a mains power-failure; anda timer-controlled socket, into which a collar may simply be plugged wheneverit needs recharging.
Electronic Collar Unit
The collar unit is a rechargeable waterproof unit that contacts with the dogvia two stainless steel probes. Each collar can give up to 2-4 weeks ofoperation ( up to 3 months in standby mode). An LED on the collar indicatesbattery charge status.
The notional maximum length of the standard ( 1.5 mm2),low cost, multi-cored, PVC covered cable is 1500m, but heavier gauge (2.5 mm2 ) loop-wire may be used for much longerboundaries. Suitable wire can be purchased from PAC or from most electricalwholesalers. The two tails of the loop connect to the Control Unit.
