I need some advice please.
I have 5 of these small .37kw 3 ph ac motors driving one continues metal grid conveyer via a gearbox, installed at various places along the conveyer each feeding from their own contactor, also installed at different locations.
These little motors all work in tandem to drive the belt.
I need to control these 5 motor's speed very accurately and from one location (at the end of the conveyor). The speeds of the motors must be exactly the same or it will damage either the conveyor or the motor or the gears. Can it be done and how. Any help or advice would be appreciated. Thanks.
ps. I phoned Big Dutchman (their installation and plant) but not much help coming from there.
I am looking at these currently.
