Connecting the Grounding Cable to the M7i Router


To connect the grounding cable:

  1. Attach an electrostatic discharge (ESD) grounding strap to your bare wrist, and connect the strap to an approved site ESD grounding point. See the instructions for your site.
  2. Connect the grounding cable to a proper earth ground.
  3. Verify that a licensed electrician has attached the cable lug provided with the router to the grounding cable.
  4. Make sure that grounding surfaces are clean and brought to a bright finish before grounding connections are made.
  5. Using a number 2 Phillips screwdriver, remove the screws next to the grounding symbol above the power supplies on the chassis rear. Secure the grounding cable lug to the chosen grounding point by reinstalling and tightening the screws.
  6. Verify that the grounding cabling is correct, that the grounding cable does not touch or block access to router components, and that it does not drape where people could trip on it.
