Questions & Answers

how man splices can be in this box?

Asked by: DoubleD2112
UPDATE to my earlier answer. If you add a box extender (Model # 551511234-25R) you would get another 1-1/2" depth so maybe 4 splices would then fit. I haven't tried this yet but plan to. I'm replacing an ancient 80 A box with a new 200 A panel and was considering using the old panel as a junction box for about 12 splices. But then I'd have to fabricate a solid cover for the old breaker cover. Using these boxes would be a neater approach...Here is a portion of the 2017 National Electrical code on splices... Chapter 3 Wiring Methods and Materials Article 312 Cabinets, Cutout Boxes, and Meter Socket Enclosures I. Installation 312.8 Switch and Overcurrent Device Enclosures with Splices, Taps, and Feed- Through Conductors. The wiring space of enclosures for switches or overcurrent devices shall be permitted for conductors feeding through, spliced, or tapping off to other enclosures, switches, or overcurrent devices where all of the following conditions are met: (1) The total of all conductors installed at any cross section of the wiring space does not exceed 40 percent of the cross-sectional area of that space. (2) The total area of all conductors, splices, and taps installed at any cross section of the wiring space does not exceed 75 percent of the cross-sectional area of that space. (3) A warning label is applied to the enclosure that identifies the closest disconnecting means for any feed-through conductors. Here is a comment I found on a DIY site... This is the applicable code section. It used to say no splices were allowed unless there is enough room. This led many, many folks to simply state "NO splices allowed". They were wrong. You'd be amazed at what it would physically take to reach that 75% number of fill. So basically yes, splices are FINE in a breaker panel.
