Please help - I want to use two separate drive motors for a motion control system (rack and pinion on rail) that are synchronized to work together. Is this possible? The system needs two motors to mitigate a single point failure of the drive gear and shaft (if one fails, the other motor will hold load). I would prefer a simple control system that allows for speed and position control.
