Properly grounded (earthed) equipment provides multiple benefits
High quality ground (earth) connections are required for the equipment ground conductors (protective
earth) and grounding electrode conductor (power system earth connection) to reduce electrical noise
and provide for safe operation of the UPS and connected loads. Conduit used alone without a grounding conductor wire is not an acceptable connection. Size ground (protective earth) conductors equal to
circuit conductors.
For wiring information, refer to Table 2.
