C6x Grounding Question

Hey Mimosans,

Excited about the release of the ax based gear soon! Quick question to anyone in the know - will the C6x be grounded to the case & pole or will a grounding line still need to be run? I know a pole isn’t a perfect ground but better than (essentially) nothing!

Thanks!

The pictures I’ve seen of it show a grounding screw on the case of the unit. The spec sheet also states that the unit has a grounding lug. However, that screw just screws into the case, as far as I can tell, not to a connection on the circuit board. However, the problem with grounding the case another way, such as by it’s connection to a pole, could be the paint on the case. You may not make a good connection to the case if you don’t use the screw.
