MC Quik Luminary Cables

MC Luminary Quik Cable

MC Luminary Quik is a U.S Patented* and a UL Listed Type MC-PCS cable which combines both power and control circuits under one armor. This reduces installation time and materials on the job site by running one armored cable as compared to an installation that runs power circuits and a separate control circuit. In addition, Atkore has reduced installation time by extruding the protective polypropylene covering directly over the THHN insulation to eliminate the need to remove it from around the assembly.

MC Luminary Quik’s armor in conjunction with the full sized aluminum ground/bonding conductor serves as a grounding means.

All MC Luminary products are designed for LED and fluorescent dimming systems. Multiple MC Luminary Cables can be used in daylight harvesting applications to wire multiple zone rooms which utilize building management systems to automatically dim or raise lighting at certain times. These products come in both steel and aluminum armor.

All our luminary products feature the 2020 NEC compliant Purple/Pink insulated control conductors.
