The Lug

As our console manuals indicate, "your surface must be connected to a grounded metal permanent wiring system or other equipment grounding conductor using the ground lug located on the console chassis."

Where is the lug?

It's on the underside of the console next to the CANbus port.

For ground sources, we recommend, in order of preference:

  1. “Station Ground,” the heavy copper strap found in the walls and floors of many radio studios
  2. AC Safety Ground — the “3rd prong” of a nearby outlet
  3. A bonded electrical conduit

#12 AWG GREEN stranded wire is the minimum wire gauge acceptable for grounding the mixer.
