What is a plenum and why do you need plenum rated cable?

A plenum is a space in an HVAC system that provides heated or cooled air to an occupied space.  This may be ductwork or the open space above a drop ceiling in a commercial building.  If you plan to install coax cable inside ductwork or an open plenum air handling space, you will likely need plenum rated cable in order to meet electrical and safety code.  Plenum and low smoke rated cable will not smolder and create smoke in the case of a fire, protecting the safety of the occupants as they attempt to exit the building.
