PinaldoGuard Electric perimeter security is a non-lethal solution recommended by security professionals. It is one of the few perimeter protection systems that deter and detect. Electric shock creates a stronger psychological barrier than razor wire. It also acts as an alarm sensor.
Electric fencing is designed to periodically release a short, sharp, safe but effective shock that an intruder will remember and avoid.
The energizer converts power into a brief high voltage pulse that runs through a conductor.
In the case of PinaldoGuard this conductor can be either the PinaldoGuard Wire or the PinaldoGuard Barrier. The ‘live’ terminal of the energizer releases an electrical pulse along the conductor and the ‘earth’ terminal is connected to a ground or earth rod. Anything or anyone touching both the live conductor and the earth (or any earthed object) will complete an electrical circuit, and receive a shock.
The device that powers a PinaldoGuard security electric fence is called an Energizer. The safety of this device is strictly regulated by international safety standards such as IEC60335.2.76. The output of these devices can reach up to 10,000 volts. However, the pulse width is very short, within the order of 100 microseconds. The peak current and pulse energy are thus kept well below dangerous levels. PinaldoGuard ensures that the energizers we use and recommend have been tested and comply with the IEC60335.2.76 standard. Test reports can be provided if requested.
