    Default Grounding

    I never bothered running a ground wire from the 220V plug, to the J1 connector on KSTEP, so it always just ran of the +/- from the transformer/capacitors, with the ground on the 220V plug cut off. Should i bother running the ground wire to the J1 from the 220V plug?

    A system that is mains powered should always be earth grounded for safety.
    You should also use it for any motor frame grounding and enclosures etc.
    See NFPA79 for a reference.
