So we installed a B5-lite link and are hoping to install more. I’ve got some questions on grounding options. First, let me say that we’re primarily interested in grounding for ESD. Lightening strikes are fairly rare in our area. The compact form factor of the Lites make them candidates for links where we wouldn’t/couldn’t deploy other units either because of size or cost. The B5-Lite has a grounding screw, but running a separate ground wire is simply not practical in a number of locations where we would want to deploy them. So is the ethernet jack on the radio attached to ground so that ESD could drain down shielded cable with a drain wire? If so, what could be used to ground the cable since the POE injectors aren’t grounded? Any other options/suggestions?
p.s. I’m going to post a couple of other thoughts/suggestions based on our brief experience with the B5-Lites.
