    That may have been what you meant, but I don't think it's what you wrote (at least not the way I understood you).

    That would make me want to use GE.

    How is GE's "nuisance" tripping record as compared to other manufacturers?

    You are talking about the load of just that one 120v circuit. The other 2 circuits (in the above example) don't affect the down stream neutral.

    I would run the MC through a hole in the pillar cap and into the back of a plastic pancake box. Just make sure the light is anchored to the cap instead of the box. That's how I would go about it.

    Actually, the overloaded phase that lost it's OCP is what is overloading the neutral. The higher the amperage on the other 2 phases the lower the shared neutral current would be.

    "Looks" like an arc? Maybe because it is an arc? This is a great observation Jon that everyone doing residential work should keep in the back of their mind.

    No, a MWBC is multiple 120v circuits sharing a neutral (no more than 1 per phase). You may use it as a 120/240v circuit if you follow the exceptions. 210.4(C) explains that yet you ignore it....

    That was very interesting. Thank you for sharing.

    Were there other AFCI's on the phase that seemed to be causing the tripping? That really is wild.

    Well, :lol: I do think you are wrong. A MWBC is not a 240v circuit. It is more than 1 120v circuits sharing a neutral. If you do what the exceptions allow, you may use it as a 120/240v circuit. And...

    Again, if you read 210.4(C) without the exceptions, you will see that you are mistaken. You are only correct if you use an exception. Therefore, a MWBC is by 210.3(C) line to neutral connections.
