Product Spotlight: MC Luminary Cables™ from AFC Cable Systems

This new cable from AFC Cable Systems is built to solve a very specific, and time consuming problem: installation of electronic dimming systems. What’s unique and special with the MC Luminary cables™, is that it contains the lighting and low voltage (dimming) wires in one metal jacket. Therefore, when you install LED lighting, you only have to pull one cable, not two.

Electronic dimming systems require both power cables and control cables in order to control the amount or power supplied to the lights. The current installation methods required for LED and fluorescent electronic dimming systems require both power and control cables to be run parallel and terminated separately. This is not only time consuming, but can also be costly. That’s where AFC came in with their solution.

They developed an easier and more efficient way to deliver both power cables and control cable under one UL listed metal clad armor (MC Cable). Not only does this cut down on costs and installation time, but also creates a cleaner, more organized appearance in the wall.
