Will this blow up?

I want to control 3 motors on a 2 channel Sabertooth. 2 of the motors should always be on or off at the same time although one is around 500w and the other 50w. Is this problematic? Or should we just plug it together and find out?

Hi @Bbrown2131 and welcome to our forum.

It shouldn’t blow up :slight_smile: but you probably won’t get efficient control of the motors.

You have a lot of topics online regarding connecting DC motor in parallel. Check this one: https://electronics.stackexchange.com/questions/182175/what-are-the-consequences-of-connecting-two-motors-in-parallel

Thanks for the link!
