Can someone give me a simple explanation on why I need to ground server racks? I've had electricians say as long as the servers are plugged into a grounded outlet, it shouldn't matter.
I believe a short will always go to ground, but unless the racks are grounded, the short might go through me before it is goes to ground ??
My intial request was ignored, but recently a small AC unit leaked water onto the racks while I was pulling cables.
The TIA/EIA-942 Telecommunications Infrastructure Standard for Data Centers have guidelines/requirements, but that is primarily with ESD and uptime, not safety.
As I must persuade management, specific safety examples would be helpful.
