    Again... this was part of a response to a question about the conductors shorting to the cables ground, not the conduit.



    Couldn't agree more

    Ocpd required for the panel board is the 400 amp disconnect next to it.

    Why? I just did a 400 amp service split into two 225amp mlo panels. I ran 500 into a wireway, than tapped down to 3/0 per 240.21(b)1. All went well at inspection.

    What size conductors are used on the line side of the disconnect?

    In general, #12 is limited to a 20 amp ocpd per code. (I can't always shoot from the hip with article references)

    Path of least resistance is also the shortest path. For example - we cannot just tap one set of conductors from a parallel service

    That's fair, i misspoke. I guess ive just never run into it, as most cables I've used with more than 3 ccc in them were for branch circuits. And 80% of 25 amps is 20, so still no derating required...

    What type of fittings is a good question. Being that it's a 480 volt circuit, i believe the inspector is probably looking at 250.97 - bonding for over 250 volts.
