I think the argument was the listing.
These show they are listed and they advertise that they are for any fitting that will screw into them.
I never thought there was a problem with the three piece method.
I am only posting this because I never saw this fitting before from Arlington.
That is it. I didn't think they were made anymore.He also used a box connector that you slid in from in the box and it had a compression nut on the outside.
It didn't have threads on the inside of the box, it was rounded over and tapered to the compression nut so when you tightened it it pulled tighter to the box.
It was pretty cool, but I haven't seen then for 30 years.
What you describe here sounds like what we used to call a 2-piece connector. I think you can still get them or at least you could mmm..... a few years ago, haven't checked lately. Try this
Arlington makes a lot of good stuff. I like their various in boxes for low profile outdoor GFI's. They have several types of recessed outlets for TV's, combination boxes/brackets for power & cable. They make a good post for mounting lights too.Remember the old argument about using an EMT connector, rigid coupling and a flex connector and whether the coupling was listed for the purpose?
I just saw this add in EC&M magazine.
This fitting is UL iisted to use with any fitting that you can connect to it.
I got to ask, how did you terminate the MC cable in the EMT?These look great. 2 Years ago a company i worked for did 10 suites in a big TI. The walls were concrete so we did exposed emt with mc above the ceiling. Did the mc connect- ridgid coupling- emt connector for weeks at a time. I thought it was a pretty crappy install.
I know how you connected the MC jacket to the EMT, but MC is a cable, it already has the conductors in it from the factory, this is why I ask if you ment FMC, in which you put the conductors in it like a raceway, with MC you would have to remove enough of the outer spiral jacket for the conductors to reach the other end of the EMT?2 screw mc connector screws into ridgid coupling. ridgid coupling screws into emt connector at the end of emt. The worst was the duplex mc connectors.
I don't see someone changing in the middle of a run with MC unless it is a very short EMT run.330.2 Definition.
Metal Clad Cable, Type MC. A factory assembly of one or more insulated circuit conductors with or without optical fiber members enclosed in an armor of interlocking metal tape, or a smooth or corrugated metallic sheath.
As it is a raceway that you install conductors in.348.2 Definition.
Flexible Metal Conduit (FMC). A raceway of circular cross section made of helically wound, formed, interlocked metal strip.
