AFC Cable Systems has launched a complete new line of MC Luminary MultiZone (UL type MC-PCS) Cables, the first product designed specifically for use in daylight harvesting applications. MC Luminary MultiZone is an expansion to AFC’s line of MC Luminary Metal-Clad Cables, which combine electric lighting and control circuits under a single interlocked armor. MC Luminary MultiZone complies with non-residential indoor lighting requirements contained in the California Title 24 Energy Efficiency Standards for Residential and Nonresidential Buildings and other energy saving lighting designs.
MC Luminary MultiZone responds to daylight harvesting trends that seek to save energy and reduce power costs by dimming lights proportionally to the availability of natural light. One MC Luminary MultiZone cable can replace up to three traditional MC Luminary cables or three power and three control pair cables. The cables are offered with multiple PVC jacket colour options matched to the power conductor colours. Also offered are neutral per-phase constructions. By combining all required conductors and phases under one armour, MC Luminary MultiZone can replace up to six individual cable runs, increasing productivity and reducing costs.
MC Luminary MultiZone cables are compliant with all applicable codes and UL standards, compatible with 0-10 volt DC solid state lighting control systems, and digital signal compatible. Unlike wireless controls that use radio frequency or Wi-Fi to control dimming, MC Luminary MultiZone offers a secure hard-wired system that eliminates any potential concerns about unauthorized network intrusion.
