  • 2 motors - 1 VFD

    Hello Everyone,
    I am building a CNC machine. It is not usual/well known machine and I need 2 motors running with exactly the same speed and torque but in opposite direction to each other.
    Is it possible in any way to run 2 3phase motors fed from one VFD but in opposite direction to each other?
    With steppers it quit easy - just connect 2 motors to the same controller and reverse wires of one motor.
    It is my understanding it would not be possible with 3 phase motors. or is it?
    I would very much appreciate any suggestion to solve it.

    Thank you very much in advance!

    Yes done it for two motors identical loads just reverse two phases on one motor to get opposing directions.
