Southwire’s MC-PCS cable for healthcare facilities, the metal-clad cable MC-PCS HCF Duo cable, combines power and control/signal conductors and includes redundant grounding paths to provide approximately 3.5 times better grounding performance than Type AC HCF Cable. It’s designed for use with LED lighting with 0-10V dimming control in patient care areas of hospitals, nursing homes, dental offices, outpatient, and other healthcare facilities.
MC-PCS HCF Duo Cable combines power conductors for lighting with 0-10V signal conductors for dimming control, and includes Southwire’s patented redundant grounding system comprised of an insulated copper ground and a bare aluminum bonding conductor that is in constant contact with the overall armor. The power conductors, insulated green ground, and signal conductor assembly are cabled together and a binder tape bearing the print legend is wrapped around the assembly.
Southwire MC-PCS HCF Duo Cable meets UL and NEC requirements for combining power/lighting circuits, Class 2 or Class 3 signal or control circuits in the same cable, and redundant ground paths, including UL 1569 and NEC articles 330, 725, and 517.13(A)&(B).
