..This is a question I've always had, and maybe,you guys could help me out...
Ok, I know that you can have no more than 360 degrees of conduit bending radius [352.26].,..but, is that in a single 10' section of pipe,..or the entire run..?
here's a hypothetical scenario...my 1" EMT exits the top of a CB panel only to turn 90 degrees, in the ceiling,then travel about 30' then 90 degree again,travel another 25' or so, take up (2) 45 degree offsets, then another 90 degree turn down the wall,where it 90 degrees again into a disconnect...I know that this run seems ridiculous,but I'm just trying to pose a "worse-case" scenario,for clarification of 352.26...any takers???

Hey Rat,

I think it says that it is 360 degrees between runs, so as long as you put a pull point in there somwhere you are OK. (pull point being a conduit body or a box)

Attic Rat, the xxx.26 sections of all the conduit sections are worded as to between pull points at any distance, long or short.

This can be a C condulet installed in the run.

In your example you would be in violation.

A "C" Condulet is a trade name for a conduit body. The "C" refers to the configuration. "C" Condulets have conduit openings on two opposite sides only, with access for pulling conductors on one side only. Think of a single device Bell box with only two threaded openings, top and bottom. Now streamline it, rounding the corners, and leaving no space for a device. That's a "C" Condulet.

..I see, and inserting that in the run would satisfy the intent of 352.26 ?? in lieu of a splice box ...
Thanx everyone,
AR,..Russ

A "C" fitting or condulet is just like an "LB" except straight, if you can picture that.

Don't forget that if the conductors are #4 or larger, that many standard "C" fittings do not comply with 314.28(A)(1).
