Power Concerns

ECE experts available to respond to power concerns

Low levels of AC (alternating current) voltage on the grounded conductors of an electrical wiring system are a normal and unavoidable consequence of operating electrical equipment. This voltage, sometimes called stray voltage, is referred to as neutral-to-earth voltage (NEV) when it can be measured between two objects which may be simultaneously contacted by livestock. If you suspect NEV or other electricity related issues such as low voltage, electromagnetic fields, or power quality concerns, contact ECE at 1-800-254-7944. We have qualified employees who can answer your questions and investigate any suspected problems.

Please note if a person feels an uncomfortable tingling sensation, the condition is probably not NEV but a serious problem with your wiring system or faulty equipment. This situation requires immediate attention and an electrician should be contacted to investigate and correct the problem.
