MC Luminary MultiZone® is one cable that contains all the power and control conductors under one armor! One multi-zone cable can replace up to three traditional luminary cables or three power and three control cables.

Request Samples or More Information

MC Luminary MultiZone® is the newest version in the MC Luminary Cable family of products.

These cables are designed for daylight harvesting trends that seek to save energy and reduce power costs by dimming lights proportionally to the availability of natural light. MC Luminary MultiZone® complies with California Title 24 Energy Efficiency Standards for Residential and Nonresidential Buildings and other energy saving lighting designs. One of the most innovative aspects of this product is that one MC Luminary MultiZone® cable can replace up to three traditional MC Luminary cables or three power and three control pair cables. In addition, this cable can be used as a homerun cable when using a centralized lighting control unit.

The cables are offered with multiple PVC jacket color options that are matched to the power conductor colors for easy identification during installation. By combining all required conductors and phases under one armor, MC Luminary MultiZone® can replace up to three individual cable runs, increasing productivity and reducing labor and installation costs. This is an economical wiring method designed with the contractor in mind.

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. 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.

With controls for up to three dimming zones, MC Luminary MultiZone® is the first product specifically designed to meet California Title 24 requirements for dimming capabilities, automatic controls in daylight harvesting areas, and automatically reducing lighting power in response to a demand response event.

In 2017, MC Luminary MultiZone® was awarded Product of the Year in the Wire and Cable Category by EC&M Magazine.
