The manufacturing plant that I work at has several dozens of 3 phase cord drops suspended from kellum grips. In the last several years many of the small machines that are plugged into these drops also need a cat 5e cable to connect to our computer system.

Is there a good way to suspend a cat5e cable for this application? The drops are typically 20 - 25 feet down from the ceiling.

Just put a regular data outlet on the ceiling and run patch leads down, when they break you will just have to replace the patch lead. We have just used gripple wire in the past crimped onto the patchleads and onto an anchor with loops in the patchlead after its ziptied.

you could hang some carflex down from a kellums grip and just put a box mount kellum terminated into an FSD box at the bottom. I wouldn't use metallic liguid tight with a kellum grip, the armour tends to break after awhile and might damage the cable.
