Question came up a work today. If SE cable is XHHW then can it be in conduit if you strip the insulation off. I do my services all in pipe and use seperate wires. Can someone help me with this. I have seen the services with service cable stripped back at the L.B and terminated at the meter. I always thought that was against code.

As I understand it....the 'fine line' is whether the individual wires are actually marked with their type....if so, then no problem.

I agree, 310.11 requires the conductors to be marked.
