We've always joked about using buttsplices. The people that installed this conveyor did more than joke. These were in a <20' run to a start-stop station...and yes, that green wire in the cord was used as a hot wire.
I didn't get a picture of the start-stop, but it was mounted to a piece of wood. The control wiring had been extended with cord (no connectors) about 10 more feet beyond the end of the EMT, which was terminated in a 4-S Box.
Here's the starter end with its terminations.

Also, check out how the crimp was made on the splices. It looks like it was made from a pair of champs or a non-insulated crimp tool. But then again, anyone that would do this would not consider using the proper tool.
Deja Vu! I just came across something so similar to this its eerie! Cleaning up the wiring hazards around a water reclamation system for a golf cart manufacturer! Buttsplices swimming in a bell box full of water!...
