Using one contactor for multiple motors
Yes, provide separate overloads for each motor and size the contactor according to total Hp and FLA of all the motors added together.
PLEASE NOTE: This is allowed by the NEC only under specific circumstances. Also, we will not provide equipment with multiple overloads due to UL listing requirements.
