Run 2 step motors simultaneously using FM562
I am working on a project and I am trying to run 2 step motor at the same time. They both should work simultaneously and their number of steps should be equal. But my problem is, when I run them, one of them is always ahead and always a few steps become missing for one step motor.
My question is, I am using FM562 card and can I connect 1 output to 2 drive? By this way I want to run them simultaneously and in equal steps. Or is there any different option?
Could you please give more information about your motor starter circuit? Are you using Direct On Line (DOL) starter, inverter, softstarter etc?
If you are not use inverter, you are not able to run various number motor at same at same rpms.
As an example, please search master-follower application on ABB inverters.For more information, contact your local ABB representative.
Hope it helps.
