Where is the grounding lug on my Element or Fusion console chassis?
This applies to Element and Fusion consoles.
For grounding information on QOR consoles, click here.
As our Fusion and Element manuals state, "(Each console) must be connected to a grounded metal permanent wiring system or other equipment grounding conductor using the threaded grounding stud located inside the connections bay."
How do I get to the stud?
Open the bay by flipping open the overbridge above the faders, exposing the connection panel of the console.
You will see the stud inside the panel on fader-side of the connections bay.
For ground sources, we recommend, in order of preference:
- “Station Ground,” the heavy copper strap found in the walls and floors of many radio studios
- AC Safety Ground — the “3rd prong” of a nearby outlet
- A bonded electrical conduit
