Any suggestions on how to tap 4 panels (350MCM each) from 3 parrallel 600MCM feeders in a gutter?

'Polaris' type terminations; 600 to 350 range, 7 barrel, or 8 to be safe.

sudsy4:

The 8 barrel Polaris is <11" long, with cable entry from either side. So, you need a troff at least 12".

They make a 'stacker' model also, but...it's not UL Listed.

Check out the link below.
