Xybix’s standard equipment does not require any specific grounding. We recommend that you contact your radio supplier for grounding specifics.

However, we do offer optional R-56 grounding for your Xybix workstations to meet any grounding standards.


Xybix can supply workstation grounding which consists of multiple grounding bars with #6 wires up to thirteen feet and #10 wires up to three feet from ground bars. Xybix grounds all metal items on work station including; Rollervision, Power bars, metal cable management and frames.
