Category winners go on to compete for the 2015 Product of the Year Platinum, Gold and Silver awards this summer with winners to be selected by an online readers’ poll. The U.S. Patented* MC Luminary Cable will be featured along with other category winners in the EC&M April issue Product of the Year showcase.

Over the years, lighting systems have become more efficient at lowering the costs and energy usage of lighting devices in buildings. Innovations in dimming technology help maximize energy savings and the life of the whole system.

Solid state lighting systems require both power cables and control cables to control the amount of power supplied to the lights. Current installation methods for LED and fluorescent dimming systems require power and control cables to be run parallel and terminated separately, which can be time consuming an expensive.

First launched in October 2014, MC Luminary® Cable provides an easier method for delivering both power and control cables under one UL listed metal clad armor (MC Cable). Running only one cable provides a neat and organized appearance in the wall. By engaging with our customers, the AFC Sales team was able to align with the industry trend of increasing use of solid state lighting systems and the needs of electrical contractors when installing them.

MC Luminary Cable is available in 12 AWG and 10 AWG with a 16 AWG solid TFN twisted jacketed pair in both 120/208V and 480Y/277V colors.

*U.S. Patent No.10,431,353
