 Question by David Spraggon posted 15 Feb 2005
what is the purpose of the chain found on some BNC terminators, is it purley for security fastening or does it improve eath bond?
 Answer by Dmitri Abaimov posted 21 Feb 2005
Dear David,

The chain is there just so it does not get lost. The bond to the ground is supposed to be established when you screw it in.

Dmitri Abaimov, RCDD
