Customer Questions & Answers

What is the minimum conduit size allowed for 2-2-2-4 MHF

Considering attic access and the drop to an existing (in wall) load panel, I would like to use the smallest allowable conduit for a portion of the run. It appears this wire will fit (snugly) in 1", but I don't know if that is too much fill per code. Can anyone give authoritative guidance? (BTW: the majority of the run will be in 2" conduit. I'm just looking at options for my space restricted portion of the run.) Thanks in advance for any guidance you can provide.
Asked by: atlanticom
You can drop down to 1 1/2" to remain at 40% conduit fill. That insulation is RHH which is thicker than thhn, etc. Do a search for raceway fill calculator and use one of those to find your answer. If your downpipe is less than 2 feet you can get away with 1 1/4 inch. I used the Electrician2 dot com calculator to get these results.

Is this wire suitable for service to an outbuilding (garage)

I have underground conduit between the house and the garage. When I enter the basement can the wire be left open and attached to the structure with staples or clamps. The distance in the structure to the main panel is about 80' through and unfinished basement and crawl space. Or does it require conduit.
Asked by: Installer
Conduit is required wherever it comes out of the ground.

Southwire, I want to install a 100amp sub panel in my barn. The 100amp breaker on the sub panel at the barn will act as a disconnect with a BR type breaker at the main panel. The distance between the main panel and sub panel will not exceed 500ft. With a 500ft run and using the 2-2-2-4 MHF what is the suggested amperage for the breaker at the main panel? In other words, at 500ft what is the maximum amperage capacity of the 2-2-2-4 MHF?
Asked by: BofNC
Per the NEC, the rated amperage capacity (ampacity) of 2-2-2-4 MHF is 100 Amps. Ampacity changes with conductor size (diameter), not length. It's the voltage drop that changes with length and it will be a big issue for a circuit that long. The industry standard for voltage drop is 3%, so we want to keep your voltage drop below that. If the voltage is too low, it can lead to malfunctioning electronics and damaged motors. Voltage drop is directly related to the length of the circuit and the amount of current carried over that circuit. Longer circuit => larger voltage drop. More current used => larger voltage drop. Southwire provides a voltage drop calculator to help with this calculation at If you have a 100A subpanel, the best way to insure that you won't have a voltage drop problem is to compute the voltage drop at full load (100A). Also, if you will be using any equipment at 120V, use 120V rather than 240V for the calculation. The result of that calculation is: 2 conductors per phase utilizing a #400 Aluminum conductor will limit the voltage drop to 2.94% or less when supplying 100.0 amps for 500 feet on a 120 volt system. As you can see, you need 2 parallel runs of much larger conductors to supply that much current to the barn without voltage drop issues.
