Figure 20 Connecting the grounding cable to a grounding strip
(1) Hex nut
(3) Grounding post
HP recommends that you use the primary grounding point or auxiliary grounding point 1, because the
grounding cable and grounding screw provided with the switch are applicable only to these two
To use auxiliary grounding point 2, you must prepare a grounding cable yourself. The connection
method is the same as connecting to the other two grounding points.
Grounding a 5800/5820X switch except the 5800AF-48G/5820AF-24XG
All 5800 and 5820X switches except the 5800AF-48G and the 5820AF-24XG have a grounding point
(with a grounding sign) on their rear panels.
To connect the grounding cable:
Remove the grounding screw from the rear panel of the switch chassis.
Attach the grounding screw to the ring terminal of the grounding cable.
Use a screwdriver to fasten the grounding screw into the grounding screw hole.
