I have an Eaton main lug load center that is listed as top or bottom feed. I had to run EMT through a wall to the back of the panel.
Is it legal to use a knockout in the back of the panel (top part of panel just to right or left of center in the back) to feed the wire through?
It is #6 thhn stranded wire. It would have the appropriate emt to box fitting.
I cannot find any information on this. I only find examples of either the wires fed through the sides of the panel or the top or bottom. There is plenty of room but the wires would be making a 90 degree bend as they came into the back of the box to get to the main lugs which are below the knockout.
The alternative would be to put a junction box above the load center and come through the back of it and then down into the top of the load center.
The box is a 125amp eaton ch box.
