Hi all, just a quick question as coming from forces where its all metal conduit I am coming to a part in my installation that is running in pvc conduit and I am using a 4 way conduit box now my question is these cables are running through box horizontally and vertically so can these cables just pass through the box or do they have to be terminated at connector blocks within the 4 way conduit? Thanks

You're only using the 4 way conduit box for the conduit to meet so I would see no reason for it to be terminated. The less connections the better. I stand to be corrected if necessary though.

they will only have to be terminated if you are connecting something to them at the box.

Yeah both cables running straight through if it was connecting well I would use a connection box or junction, but many thanks was just a quick question not really used to working with this pvc conduit thanks guys.
