Southwire MC-PCS Duo cable Wins NECA Showstopper Award

Product offers all-in-one solution for power and control or signal.

For the fifth consecutive year, Southwire Company, LLC has delivered a product worthy of a National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA) Showstopper Award. Southwire’s new MC-PCS Duo Cable was awarded this distinction at the 2015 NECA Show in San Francisco.

“Southwire continues to develop innovative solutions that help improve the contractor’s bottom line by increasing job site productivity while helping to minimize risk on the job” said Roy Jackson, Director of MC, Flex and Liquidtight. “Southwire’s new MC-PCS Duo Cable, like our previous five straight Showstopper winners, has features and benefits that are revolutionizing the electrical industry.”

Southwire MC-PCS Duo Cable provides an all-in-one solution by combining power conductors along with control/signal/data cables all under one armor. This reduces a contractor’s installation costs when compared to pulling multiple cables separately.

The MC-PCS Duo Cable is available in solid or stranded conductors and is ideal for use with LED or fluorescent lighting with dimming controls in commercial, industrial, institutional, multi-family residential and SMART buildings.

Southwire MC-PCS Duo Cable provides complete circuit identification directly on the aluminum or steel armor or PVC jacket, identifying the cable as type MC-PCS as well as conductor gauges and colors. The cable is compliant with UL 1569 and NEC articles 330 and 725.

The NECA Showstopper Showcase and Awards is the most prestigious recognition event in the electrical construction industry. The awards are decided by a panel of electrical contractors and magazine contributors.
