Grounding the M10i Router


You must provide the grounding cable. For grounding cable specifications, see M10i Chassis Grounding Cable and Lug Specifications. To connect the grounding cable:

  1. Verify that a licensed electrician has attached the two-hole cable lug provided with the router to the grounding cable.
  2. Connect the grounding cable to a proper earth ground.
  3. Attach an ESD grounding strap to your bare wrist and connect the strap to one of the ESD points on the chassis.
  4. Using a number 2 Phillips screwdriver, remove the screws next to the grounding symbol above the power supplies on the chassis rear (see Figure 1). Secure the grounding cable lug to the chosen grounding point by reinstalling and tightening the screws.
  5. Verify that the grounding cable is connected correctly, that it does not touch or block access to router components, and that it does not drape where people could trip on it.
