So, i've a question about grounding orion output, is it really usefull?

So, if in fault case, a + wire from the orion output Touch the chassis, without a chassis connection between orion negative output and chassis, but between battery (Byd pro) negative and chassis, the fuse will work (fuse on orion output). For me not, but maybe negative input and output is connected...
