The PXIe-1092 chassis are
designed with a three-position IEC 60320 C14 inlet for the U.S. that
connects the ground line to the chassis ground. For proper
grounding, a suitable cordset must be used to connect this inlet to
an appropriate earth safety ground.
If your power outlet does
not have an appropriate ground connection, you must connect the premises
safety ground to the chassis grounding screw located on the rear
- Grounding wire (16 AWG)
- #2 Phillips screwdriver
- AC power cable
Complete the following steps to connect the PXIe-1092 chassis to safety
ground and a power source.
Connect a 16 AWG (1.3 mm) wire to the chassis grounding screw
(#8-32 SEMS) using a grounding lug. The wire must have green
insulation with a yellow stripe or must be noninsulated
Attach the opposite end of the wire to permanent earth ground
using toothed washers or a toothed lug.
Attach input power through the rear AC inlet using the AC power
