Steve, (sparky) you've still had mostly good luck with 'em?
I'm still climbing the bell curve associated with any new widget. There seems to be a number of situations where the AFCI is not as user friendly.
Case in point is thier installation after
an invereted supply, this is not a true wavefrom per se', it is a 'stepped' one.
I've yet to receive concise info on the efficy and/or diagnostic approach to a specific waveform monitor's (AFCI) interpetation of an imperfect or distorted waveform.
The suppliers are completely in the dark, salesman simply along for the ride, not much more....
The manufacturer's have few that can converse about such maladys, and frustrate me with thier 'installer error' stonewalling.
The only tester i've found looks $$$$....rumors about other testers abound. The methods will probably spring up from the forums
