ARTICLE 358. ELECTRICAL METALLIC TUBING: TYPE EMT358.10. Uses Permitted. As is the case with most other raceways, the NEC only recognizes the use of listed EMT. EMT is a general-purpose raceway of the same nature as rigid metal conduit and IMC. Although rigid metal conduit and IMC afford maximum protection for conductors under all installation conditions, in many instances it is permissible, feasible, and more economical to use EMT to enclose circuit wiring. Because EMT is lighter than conduit, however, and is less rugged in construction and connection details, the NEC restricts its use (Art. 358) to locations (either exposed or conce…
