Does a QO250GFI require a load neutral connection?

Issue:
Will 2P, QO-GFI breakers work on 240V, 2 Wire systems without out a neutral?

Product Line:
Circuit Breakers

Environment:
Applies to all 2P QO-GFI, 50A and below including; QO215GFI QOB215GFI QO220GFI QOB220GFI QO225GFI qOB225GFI QO230GFI QOB230GFI QO240GFI QOB240GFI QO250GFI QOB250GFI QO260GFI and QOB260GFI

Resolution:
A load neutral connection is required only if there is a load neutral. The circuit breaker will perform properly without a load neutral on a 2-wire 240Vac circuit. However the neutral pigtail still has to be connected to panel neutral bar.
