I'd like some opinions on if this type installation would meet the NEC:
Short version: When can shielded cables be ran in a suspended ceiling and not be in a raceway? Two types of cables, one with 120VDC for small motors and other is 24VDC for sensors, & encoders.
Have a large custom control panel (120VAC max) and some test stands w/small DC motors, encoders, and sensors. All are in a lab/testing room. We need to run shielded cables between the control panel and test stands. Conduits (1 for low voltage & 1 for 120VDC) will extend up into a suspended ceiling and end. In the ceiling the cables are to be supported by the metal joists, and ty-rapped together.
