Electric Fences are designed to create an electrical circuit when touched by person (or animal). The circuits proposed in this article release 10kV electrical pulses to the fence-line and monitor the line status. This entire system is design to drive using 25V (5A) single-rail DC power source (using 5A power supply unit or pair of 12.6V Lead-Acid batteries).
Main controller of this system is Microchip PIC12F675 – 8bit microcontroller. All the line monitoring, pulse generation and alarm system controlling is performed by this microcontroller.
Some of the most notable features of this system are built-in audible alarm system, contactless fence line monitoring system, Support for wide range of step-up transformers (up to maximum of 10kV) and compact 10cm × 10cm PCB design.
This system use standard electronic components (through-hole components) and SMD components in this provided PCB layout. All the project documents, schematics, PCB designs and firmware source codes are available to download at elect.wikispaces.com.
