Hi,
I have 18 - 1" conduits that need to go to a gutter.

314.28(A)(1)covers this right? Only #4 and larger though. Anything smaller and it is based on condcutors right?

I guess a gutter that has no terms in it is a pull box?

Are there specific sections that refer to a "Gutter" or is this the same as "Pull Box"?

Thanks for any replies.

See Article 366 and Article 376.

You are allowed a 20% fill and up to 30 current carrying conductors. If you exceed 30 conductors, you have to do the derating per table 310.15(B)(2)(a)

Essentially, they are the same thing, they just differ in how they are used.

Yes Mustang, 312.6 applies too. There was a change in the 2005 to address this more clearly, stating that the "one wire per terminal" column is to be used, even if you have conductors in parrallel.
