    Usually two. Sometimes, but rarely three.
    It should say on the package or the company web site.

      Thank You for the reply I usually put 2 in there and not set the screws to tight but I did not know what the new NEC says. Thanx Richard

        2 only if UL listed for 2.

          What if they are "UL listed" for three?
          Such as the Arlington 841?

            Then you can use 3. I generally only use 1.

              Wow. Really?

              Seems like a terrible waste of space to me.

                Yes. Generally, I exceed the box fill of the box before I run too many cables in. And for panelboards, there's always more than enough knockouts and I can always drill one.

                  This is my point. If the panel is even close to full I find I run out of KO's quickly. And drilling is not always an option, especially on top.

                    For 12-2, I would use only 2 per connector....14-2, I usually use 2 also, but 3 if I find that I'm running out of KOs or connectors.
