energy management AFC Cable Systems

Energy management: AFC Cable Systems, a manufacturer of electrical products, announces 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 color options matched to the power conductor colors. Also offered are neutral per-phase constructions. 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.
