    I have 6x 24v 400w 16.7A LED Power supplies and I'm not sure if I should use each one for each motor or if I could daisychain these things and use them in parallel. So I make sure the psu won't blow up if one motor (Nema23 57BLF03 and BLDC-8015A-5) is exceeding the 16 amps. As a bonus, I would only need one 24v Relais to get the emergency switch working.

    The informations I could find online were all contradictory and I would like to not burn the house down.
    As far as I understood, if I get all the PSUs to the same output Voltage it should work?

    I could imagine someone already played around with LED PSUs


    I used my mad mspaint skills to visualize it ;)
