Connecting the FortiGate-7121F chassis to ground

The FortiGate-7121F chassis includes a ground connector on the rear the bottom of the FortiGate-7121F back panel. The ground connector consists of two terminals to be used with a double-holed lug such as Thomas & Betts PN 54850BE. Connect the double-holed lug to the chassis ground connector using two supplied M5x10 pan-head screws.

You need the following equipment to connect the FortiGate-7121F chassis to ground:

  • An electrostatic discharge (ESD) preventive wrist strap with connection cord.
  • One green 6 AWG stranded wire with listed closed loop double-hole lug suitable for minimum 6 AWG copper wire, such as Thomas & Betts PN 54850BE.
  • Two M5x10 pan-head screws.
To connect the FortiGate-7121F chassis to ground

  1. Attach the ESD wrist strap to your wrist and to an ESD socket or to a bare metal surface on the chassis or frame.
  2. Make sure that the chassis and ground wire are not energized.
  3. Connect the ground wire double-holed lug to the FortiGate-7121F chassis ground connector using two supplied M5x10 pan-head screws.
  4. Connect the other end for the ground wire to a data center ground connector.
  5. Optionally label the wire GND.
