Splicing 9-5kv conductors in one splice box


I have 3-250's, 3-350's and 3-500's medium voltage cables to splice in one nema 4x box. What are the dimensions for the splice box?

The answer is, that it is bigger than a bread box, but smaller than a VW.

If this is the homework type I can not do much with it but if you are legit electrician you should talk to other electricians whom they deal with high voltage stuff and by the way.,

You did not stated what type of MV cable it is., so I will not able give you a driect answer to it due there is many types of MV cables to deal wiht it and the last thing is this is NOT A DIY item anyway.

Merci,
Marc
