Qualities of a good Wire Gauge for your Electronic Dog Fences!
• 14 Gauge Dog Fence Wire vs. 16 Gauge Wire vs. 18 Gauge Wire vs. 20 Gauge Wire (thick vs. thin)
There are different wire gauges for installation of electronic dog fences.
The most common are 14 gauge wires, 16 gauge wires, 18 gauge wires and 20 gauge dog fence wires (the difference referrers to the thickness and thinness of the wire). Most Do It Yourself (DIY) Dog Fence Systems use a roll of 20 gauge wires. But, most systems that are professionally installed use 14 gauge wire which is thicker. Why the difference?
Fewer Wire Breaks
A thick wire automatically means fewer wire breaks and more resilient product which is also long-lasting. For example, a 14 gauge wire which is the thickest wire is approximately 6 times stronger than the ordinary 20 gauge wire. The jacket of the thicker wire is also thicker compared to the rest. This makes it resistant to all but with the strongest impacts.
When professionals install the dog fence for you, they use an industrial trencher which is very strong and tough on the wire. For that reason, it makes it easier for them to use the thicker gauge of wire. At the same time, they are forced to use the 14 gauge, since the industrial trencher will easily break the thin wire.
There are however disadvantages of using the thicker wire which include:
• Working with thicker wire is a challenge especially if you don’t have the industrial trencher to help you in bending the wire. Working with thinner wire is not only easy, but it is also flexible.
• The thicker the wire, the more expensive it is. The thicker wire has a thicker jacket and uses 4 times more copper making it more costly to make and transport.
Most of the dog fence models available in the market will work with any, a gauge of wire. However, it is more advantageous to use the thick wire since it has lower resistance and at the same time, the signal gets around much easier than in a thin wire.
It is actually possible to get a wider range with the thick wire compared to the thin one. For example, if your yard is slightly larger than the given capacity of the transmitter, a thick wire might make it possible for the transmitter to cover the remaining part when compared to using a thin wire.
A twisted wire is needed for running between the boundary and the transmitter box. You can also use it on any other area where the wire doesn’t need to trigger the receiver collar. The radio wave automatically cancels each other once you twist the wires together. The dog will, therefore, be free to walk on the ground with the twisted wires without any correction.
The easiest way of getting twisted wire is buying it. You can also decide to make your own twisted wire. This might, however, be a challenge without the right information and technique of how to go about. It might also take much of your time which can be tiresome and engaging.
