CARROLLTON, Ga., May 3, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Southwire's new MC-PCS Duo™ Cable was awarded the distinction of Product of the Year finalist in the wire and cable category by the judges at EC&M magazine. This is the seventh time in the last 10 years that Southwire has had a product named as a category finalist.
As a finalist, the new MC-PCS Duo™ Cable will now compete for the overall Product of the Year award. All 39 product category winners will be included in an online readers' poll on the EC&M magazine website. This poll will be open to all EC&M magazine subscribers and will determine the 2016 Product of the Year Platinum, Gold (1st runner-up), and Silver (2nd runner-up) winners. The winners will be announced both online and in the August 2016 issue of EC&M magazine.
Earlier this year the new MC-PCS Duo™ Cable received a prestigious Showstopper Award from the National Electrical Contractor Association competition.
"We are honored to have our MC-PCS Duo™ Cable product recognized by those who judge products in the electrical industry," said Roy Jackson, Director of MC, Flex and Liquidtight. "Product innovation is nothing new to us here at Southwire and this recognition signifies we are doing the right things when we develop our new products."
The new MC-PCS Duo™ Cable is ideal for use with LED or fluorescent dimming controls and SMART buildings. It combines power conductors along with control and signal cables under one armor. This combination can save time and money on the jobsite by helping reduce installation costs. MC-PCS Duo™ Cable also help decrease the likelihood of damage and eliminate callbacks and repairs.
Southwire's new 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.
