1 Class I, Division per NEC 50.0(B)() Applications Larger body size facilitates pulling of large and heavy conductors. Specially designed raised cast covers provide additional wiring area. Mogul Unilets for pulling straight, 5 or 90 angle turns and/or making taps and splices. Features Exclusive built-in rollers facilitate cable pulling. Available on NEC 6x8x Series Moguls (C, LB and UB) in sizes -/ and up. Smooth, rounded integral bushing in each hub protects conductor insulation. Accurately tapped, tapered threads for tight, rigid joints and ground continuity. Covers have captive stainless steel screws to speed installation, prevent freezing of screws. LB and UB Moguls Length Requirement: distance between centerline of each hub bushing (conduit stop) exceeds six times the trade diameter of the conduit per NEC 3.8(A)(). Bending Space Requirement: these moguls also meet the NEC 3.8(A)() Exception requirement spelled out in NEC 3.6(A) Table. C Moguls Length Requirement: distance between centerline of each hub bushing (conduit stop) exceeds eight times the trade diameter of the conduit per NEC 3.8(A)(). Bending Space Requirement: not applicable. LL and LR Moguls Like LB moguls, these moguls have an end hub. The second hub is in the side (LL left and LR right) instead of the back. T Moguls These are like C moguls ( thru ), except with an additional middle side hub. Distance between the centerline of each C hub conduit stop exceeds eight times the trade diameter of the conduit per NEC 3.8(A)(). Standard Materials Bodies and covers: malleable iron or copperfree (/0 of % max.) aluminum Gaskets: neoprene Screws: stainless steel Standard Finishes Malleable iron bodies and covers: triple-coat () zinc electroplate, () chromate and (3) epoxy powder coat Aluminum bodies and covers: epoxy powder coat NEC/CEC Certifications and Compliances UL Standard: 5B UL Listed: E57 CSA Standard: C.

If large conductors are required to be bent in LL, LR or T direction, order junction boxes instead. See Enclosures and Junction Boxes. 68 Visit our website at or contact us at (800) February 07
