How do you use the reading to find a fault on the fence?
2 Types of Fence Configurations
Type 1: Fence does not loop back to the Energizer - When using the Fault Finder in a non-looping fence (See example A or B), the current arrow direction is not needed to determine the location of the fault, and can be ignored.
Type 2: Fence loops back to the Energizer - When using the Fault Finder with a fence that loops back to the Energizer (See example C), the current arrows are used to determine the location of the fault. In normal conditions, as you test along a fence with no loops or faults, the fence current will decrease the farther you are from the Energizer (See example A).
If you have a fence with one or more major faults, as you test along the fence there will be excess amounts of current on the fence. As you pass the point of the fault, the current will rapidly drop.
