Grounding the SRX100 Services Gateway

 

To meet safety and electromagnetic interference (EMI) requirements and to ensure proper operation, the SRX100 Services Gateway must be adequately grounded before power is connected.

Figure 1 illustrates how a grounding cable connects to the services gateway.

You ground the device by connecting a grounding cable to earth ground and then attaching it to the chassis grounding points using one M3 screw.

Caution

Before device installation begins, a licensed electrician must attach a cable lug to the grounding and power cables that you use. A cable with an incorrectly attached lug can damage the device (for example, by causing a short circuit).

Table 1 lists the grounding components of the SRX100 Services Gateway.

To ground the device:

  1. Connect the grounding cable to a proper earth ground.
  2. Verify that a licensed electrician has attached the cable lug to the grounding cable.
  3. Place the grounding cable lug over the grounding point on the middle rear of the chassis.
  4. Secure the grounding cable lug to the grounding point with the screw as shown in Figure 1.
  5. Dress the grounding cable and verify that it does not touch or block access to the services gateway components and that it does not drape where people could trip on it.

Note

The device should be permanently connected to ground during operation.
