Cordage SJOW (SJOOW) in conduit


I participate in another forum (Ridgid Tools electrical forum) and we have had a discussion about using cordage SJOW in conduit. I feel it is not allowed in conduit by NEC( 2011) 400.7 (6), others disagree. What say you?

I have never seen it in a conduit. Seen it term in a junction box, and from there, wired per local codes, whether bx, conduit, or romex, but never placed in a conduit, because that is not what the cable is used for, or designed for.

Reading the thread on the other forum, you're both right. But you're more right. It is not permitted in raceways, except when otherwise permitted by the code - and connections to movable equipment are one of those exceptions. So, where the cable is used for a submersible pump, it may be run through conduit part of the way. Connections to wet-niche pool lights are another common example of this installation. It's even a plausible argument that the conduit in such an installation is a sleeve, not a raceway, because it's only terminated at one end. However, you can't use it as a substitute for other wiring methods.
