What is the recommendation for maximum number of motors that can be connected to one Altivar drive ?


30 June 2023

The limit for the number of motors cannot be specified. The actual limit would be the nominal current and power of all the motors comparing to the nominal of the drive and the cable length.
If these limits are not exceeded, then it is Ok to connect the motors to the drive.
