Thank you Papabravo.If your power supply is powering a device with a metal chassis, you want that chassis at ground potential for safety. If there are no exposed metal parts then you don't need to worry about it.
This place has everything come on... I'll show you.Are there any cases in which this ground connection is mandatory ?
Very interesting link, I agree.Did you happen to take a peek at the link it's a very good read. It compliments and supports the information these good gentlemen have offered!
quoting post #7 of the link provided. I've no comments just yet, but earth, ground, and common are about the three most misunderstood words in all of the electrical world.
This discussion should be an eye opener.
