Transitioning Between Raceways

For most electricians, the proper use of fittings is elementary. Fittings themselves are pretty straightforward in their use. Referencing Definitionsin theNational Electrical Code under the entry:Fittings, we are informed that a fitting is "an accessory such as a locknut, bushing, or other part of a wiring system that it is intended primarily to perform a mechanical rather than an electrical function.” From experience, we know that fittings are straps, hangers, couplings and connectors which connect (or couple) a raceway to itself, a box, device, enclosure, or similar electrical apparatus — pretty simple.
