    Can I use a single power supply to provide power to more than one LinMot drive?

    Yes, a single power supply can connect to multiple LinMot drives.  Just be sure to use separate supplies for motor power and logic power.  Submitted: 07/12/13

    Can I use a single power supply to provide power to both the logic power input and the motor power input of a LinMot drive?

    No, because when the motor circuits regenerate, the voltage on the motor supply terminals can rise to as much as 100 Volts.  The logic supply input cannot handle more than 28 Volts. – Submitted: 07/11/13

    Slider
    The magnetic rod that slides within the stator of a LinMot motor.
    Stator
    The external part of a LinMot linear motor containing the magnetic field coils, electronics and inner bearing.
