The U.S. Patented* 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. In addition MC Luminary MultiZone® complies with California Title 24 Energy Efficiency Standards for Residential and Nonresidential Buildings and other energy saving lighting designs. 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 color options matched to the power conductor colors. By combining all required conductors and phases under one armor, 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.
With control 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.

U.S. Patent No.10,431,35
