Why Does My New 3M 9110/9310 Have a Grounding Cord?

Posted on by Michelle R. in All-Spec News, ESD News, Industry News, New Products, Static Control Tips and Tricks Leave a comment

You’ve invested in the revolutionary ionizer that’s built for virtually maintenance-free static protection. But why does it come with a grounding cord?

For safe operation, 3M 9110 and 9310 ionizers still must be properly grounded. During installation, first be sure to position the unit outside of explosive areas or flammable environments. Then, use the ground wire to establish a path to ground through the GROUND terminal at the rear of the ionizer. Follow the remaining instructions to ensure proper installation, and your 9110 or 9310 will be up and running in no time, delivering rapid static neutralization and low maintenance protection.
