Actually it's *very* easy. Just don't connect the outside conductor of 
the sockets, if they aren't isolated from the metal panel, to the ground 
of the module. Maybe this sounds counterintuitive, but the metal panel 
will already be grounded, through the mounting rails, to the star point. 
As there are no currents flowing through the panels, it will be as solid 
a ground as any you can find as a starting point for your cable shield.
