IntelliRope® PE 6.0
Excellent low-tension conductor for both permanent and semi-permanent fences. Virgin polyethylene monofilaments are interwoven with 3 tinned copper and 3 stainless steel conductive filaments.
6mm (1/4") diameter is heavier and stronger than IntelliRope® PE 4.5, but also more expensive.
NEW! IntelliRope® BLUE PE 6.0 similar to our standard IntelliRope®, with blue filaments to enhance visibility to animals (who can see shades of blue).
Which conductor is right for you?We offer a wide-range of electrifiable ropes, twines and tapes to fit your situation. Visit this link to compare all Premier conductors.
Well suited for humid climates because mildew does not thrive on polyethylene (PE). But PE filaments are “slick”—it’s difficult to tie a knot in PE rope. Use a RopeLink or Rope Connector for connections.

Plug-in (AC) energizers are best if the fence is close to a 110V power outlet. Solar energizers may be a good option for fences far away from an outlet. A wide-impedance energizer such as the Kube 4000 is well-suited for most “4-season” fences—a fence that must work when grass stays brown or snow covers the ground.
Spacing of line posts (not more than 35 ft) must be adjusted to terrain. Always put a post at top of hills and bottom of valleys. Vary the spacing of rope strands according to type and size of animal(s), fence usage (boundary vs. subdivision) and the number of strands.
Suggested Strand Height (from ground):
- For Sheep & Goats:
- 3-strand fence—35", 24", 12"
- 5-strand fence—36", 27", 20", 13", 7"
- For Cattle:
- 1-strand fence—34"
- 2-strand fence—34", 22"
- 3-strand fence—40", 27", 15"
- For Horses:
- 2-strand fence—46", 24"
- 5-strand fence—60", 48", 36", 24", 12"
- For Deer Exclusion:
- 2-strand fence—48", 30"
- 5-strand fence—50", 40", 30", 20", 10"
- 3D anti-deer fence—inside: 48", 18"; outside: 34"

Purchased to keep horses off of pipe/cable fence. Very easy to set up/install. We used this with the pipe clamp insulators. So far very happy.

Purchased this for permanent fencing in August 2018. Very happy with the quality and ease of installation. Fence has now been up for 2 winter’s. After initial stretch period, it has maintained tension. It is highly visible all year round. The horses definitely respect it, even when it’s not “hot”. Great quality for the price point! Ordering more to do additional fencing.

Fenced off about 8000 sq ft, garden. Too soon to tell if it works. Sure was simple to install. Set up a "3-D" fence for deer. Inside fence has a rope about knee high and one about 4ft high. Outside fence, which is three outside the inner fence just has one rope at knee high. Supposedly, this will confuse deer into thinking they would have a problem jumping this "3D" obstruction. Two weeks in, no deer inside perimeter, but also no crops yet to draw them in. Time will tell, but again simple easy to install.

I got it straight from Joel Salatin to buy the best... So for me there was no other choice and I am very pleased. I ran 3 rolls of 1320 feet by myself and was amazed that there were no tangles at all. My goats respect the fence and I am running a 2 wire setup. I also recommend getting the RopeLinks. They make the job easy to make connections.

Works great, once the goats touch it once they know that white rope will shock them so usually once or twice an they know that’s what got em.
