Tools and Parts Required for MX960 Router Grounding and Power Connections

To ground and provide power to the router, you need the following tools and parts:

  • Phillips (+) screwdrivers, numbers 1 and 2

  • 2.5-mm flat-blade (–) screwdriver

  • 7/16-in. (11 mm) hexagonal-head external drive socket wrench, or nut driver, with a torque range between 23 lb-in. (2.6 Nm) and 25 lb-in. (2.8 Nm) tightening torque, for tightening nuts to terminal studs on each power supply on a DC-powered router.

  • Wire cutters

  • Electrostatic discharge (ESD) grounding wrist strap


The maximum torque rating of the terminal studs on the DC power supply is 58 lb-in. (6.5 Nm). The terminal studs may be damaged if excessive torque is applied. Use only a torque-controlled driver or socket wrench to tighten nuts on the DC power supply terminal studs. Use an appropriately-sized driver or socket wrench. Ensure that the driver is undamaged and properly calibrated and that you have been trained in its use. You may wish to use a driver that is designed to prevent overtorque when the preset torque level is achieved.
