Two main drives in one chain conveyor

  1. Sep 10, 2012 #1
    Is it possible to install two main drives in one chain conveyor to boost up the chain conveyor speed?
    If possible how to synchronize between the two main drive motors. The motors will control by inverter.

    Tell us more about your motors, are they AC or DC?
    Tell us about the drives you're using. If they're for DC motors, what voltage are they capable of and what voltage are they running at? The same for current, how many amps can it supply and how many amps are being used?

    If it's a variable frequency drive with an AC motor, what is preventing you from turning the frequency higher? Are you already operating at maximum current? Is the current frequency all the higher the drive can go?
