You get peace of mind when you choose the reliable ElectroBraid® fencing system. ElectroBraid® is SAFE, SECURE and SIMPLE. The ElectroBraid® high-voltage insulated copper lead-out wire is an important part of the copper-based ElectroBraid® system.
Use to connect earthing stakes together, connect the charger / energiser to the earth stakes / rods, connect the energiser to the fence, to go under gates, and for all electrical connections between strands of ElectroBraid®
Provides excellent electrical conductivity for ElectroBraid® horse fence
Withstands 15,000 volts
Use with copper-coated polybraid splicers or copper split bolts for non-corroding electrical connections
100 metres (200 feet) per roll
Solid copper connections?
ElectroBraid® high voltage insulated copper lead out wire is heavily insulated, with a solid copper conductor for the core, and is rated at 15kv. It serves as the connection that completes the electrical circuit, bringing power from your ElectroBraid® energiser to the earth stakes, then to your ElectroBraid® fence, between Braid™ strands and back to the negative grounded strand on your fence. Use with ASPLTC10-EB to splice.
How to run your lines?
ElecroBraid® high-voltage copper lead out wire is designed to be unrolled smoothly from a spool that spins freely—either suspended between your hands or from a vehicle. DO NOT take Braid™ off a stationary roll or it will kink and can be damaged. Use with ElectroBraid® copper split bolts (ASPLTC10-EB) for non-corroding electrical connections. After you have installed a strand of Braid™, you can tension the Braid™ using the ElectroBraid® tension kit (ATENSIONKIT-EB).
Use Copper Lead-Out Wire to continue the current under gates
There’s a reason ElectroBraid® is America’s #1 Horse Fence
ElectroBraid® fencing components are made to be durable and perform as part of the safe, high-quality copper-based ElectroBraid® fencing system. Use ElectroBraid® as a permanent perimeter fence or a movable fence for strip grazing.
How much ElectroBraid® high-voltage insulated copper lead out wire will I need?
Add the widths of all your gates together and multiply by 2 = _______ plus 6 metres (20 feet) for each gate = ________. NOTE: If you wish to use the Winter/Flooding Wiring configuration as explained below, then add the widths of your gates together and multiply by the number of strands on your fence =________ plus 30 feet for each gate =__________.
Measure the distance from your Energiser to the nearest point on your fence = _________.
Measure the distance from your Energiser to where your ground rods will be located = ______.
Measure the distance from your ground rods to the nearest point on the fence =_______.
Add these numbers together = ______ plus a minimum of 3 metres (10 feet) for the distance between earth stakes = _______. This is the minimum length of copper lead out wire you will need. Consider allowing for some extra wire for possible additional earth stakes, miscalculations and/or changes in your fence design.

How to install cut-off switches for snow or flooding
Heavy, wet snow or fooding can short electric fencing. To prevent this, install ElectroBraid® cut off switches (AHDCOS-EB) in areas prone to snow accumulation or fooding. If needed, you can install multiple cut-off switches that allow you to progressively turn on and off the bottom strands as snow depth changes. Wire your energizer as illustrated below.
The importance of installing a good earthing system
Remember that proper earthing is critical to the effectiveness of your fence and safety of your horses. Poor or improper earthing causes 95% of all electric fencing problems. You can have the most powerful energiser in the world, but if the ground return is poor, your fence will not perform. Use a minimum of three ElectroBraid® copper ground rods (GRSC8-EB) spaced at least 3 metres (10 feet) apart. Use a "hot-cold" system, earthing the next-to-top strand of your ElectroBraid® fence. Electrify all other strands. With dry or sandy soil, you may need more earth stakes.
