How do you connect this MC cable to a surface mounted outdoors main electrical panel? Preferably would like to come in thru the back of panel thru the wall instead of coming out of wall and connected on top of panel. Thanks
Asked by: Dan
Hello, I wrote the question but have found out because of a surface mounted electrical panel on the outside of the house it is best to make all the runs through a crawl space or attic and connect the MC cable to a junction box located near the panel. From there I can convert from MC to NM (Romex) and then route out thru the stucco into the back of the panel. This helps with moisture and derating as the cables run thru a short conduit pipe attached to the rear of the panel. I asked a buddy of mine and an electrician and they both said the same. Thanks everyone for your help answering this question.

Why not provide information about the outside diameter so your customer knows what size clips are need to mount to wall and what size and type of connectors are needed for connecting to electrical box. The received cable specifically states no set screw connectors.
