Can you install MC cable from fixture to fixture using the fixture support wires as the support for the MC cable also (without using separate junction boxes)? This is a commercial job. The cable ranges from 6' to 12'. Several people (including some inspectors) have said that it can be done this way. The problem that I am running into is that the inspecting engineer on this particular job sites it as a NEC violation if done this way.
I have found several code articles (330.30, 330.30B, 348, 376.56, 386.56, and 410.31) that read that it can be done this way. I have yet to find one that states it cannot.
If someone knows the exact article section in the NEC that states that it CANNOT be done this way, please let me know.
