  1. What documentation? would be interested in having a look at that.
    When i was technical director at mcp it was policy to strongly advise not to use two motors with one driver.

    To be honest I have never tried driving 2 motors from 1 driver, I was thinking about doing this in my initial design stage because someone suggested it but gave up on the idea.

    Well you learn something every day!

    Kip, got two 6' lengths of about 8DP rack, no pinions that's only suitable for a gate or similar you can have.

    BTW saw a gate mechanism, home made that used one of those motorised liner ballscrew assemblies. He'd mounted the fixed point behind the pivot point in X and Y to be technical so it had a mechanical advantage and the 10" or so travel was enough to swing a big 5 bared gate.

  5. I wrote that and it is meant as wiring the motor in parallel. like wiring the four phases in parallel or series, not more than one motor in parallel.
    I Understand why it can sound ambiguous.
