I have a customer that is wanting an IP CCTV Camera installed in an elevator car.  

Does anyone know of a Cat5e or Cat6 Elevator Traveling Cable? I'm assuming it would need to be stranded due to the bend radius requirement in elevators, but I can't find any.

Any advice would be helpful.

I have had to deal with this recently.

When the elevator installer/manufacturer orders the traveling cable they can add a Cat6 or RG6 for cameras.

I am sure that you can add something after the fact, but have not found anything.

The traveling cable is specialty made cable, so the best bet is to get in early.

I'm with chobbs. I would run a composite (multi media) type cable that would have say a few 4 pairs, coax, etc in it. This would prep for the future. Find out their needs. Thanks.

Always look out for the next tech. because one day it will be you.

Cat5 or 6 cables are not allowed in elevator traveling cables here in NA. The best option for this request is fiber.

Plan B is to use wireless bridge.
We installed wireless bridge for IP CCTV as well as IP Phone in elevator car

According to my information there is not an elevator cable with CAT6.
CAT6 has a cross at the middle and its not flexible.
There is elevator cable with CAT5e.CAT5e is multicore specially manufactured for elevator cable flexibility.

Elevator traveling cables with anything smaller than 20 AWG are not permitted in North America.
This comes directly from NEC code. NFPA 70 Article 620.12

It is typically not recommended to add cable to a traveler cable. That cable is specifically designed for that unit only and the weight of the traveler is figured into the overall capacity of the elevator. You will not pass inspection in most jurisdictions with an additional cable tied to the traveler.
