We are installing Cat6 cable in a large open warehouse to feed manufacturing equipment. Most of the run will be in basket tray at 25' AFF. Ceiling is about 40'. The last 15' to the equipment will not have tray. There is a 2" EMT conduit which feed power to the equipment which we could possible follow. Are we allowed to run our Cat6 cable to the conduit? (I should probably know this but don't :) )

Take a look here:

300.11(C) Raceways Used as Means of Support. Raceways shall be used only as a means of support for other raceways, cables, or
nonelectrical equipment under any of the following conditions:
(1) Where the raceway or means of support is identified as a means of support
(2) Where the raceway contains power supply conductors for electrically controlled equipment and is used to support Class 2 circuit conductors or cables that are solely for the purpose of connection to the equipment control circuits
(3) Where the raceway is used to support boxes or conduit bodies in accordance with 314.23 or to support luminaires in accordance with 410.36(E)

What is the function of the CAT 6? Attaching it to the power conduit may be permitted by 300.11(C)(2).
