Ever try wiring the motors in series in each unit? I've always wanted to try that with an ERR CC but never have for some reason.
All that will do is greatly reduce the pulling power as each motor will not be able to generate maximum torque at the lower voltages available. I have actually tried it, but that was the only effect I saw. I think the right way it to manage the cooling of the rectifier in addition to the FET's.
A 10 amp bridge will generate less heat than a 8 amp, won't it? At a given current. If these things are getting that hot that they are breaking down. even heat sinked to the chassis, you'd figure I higher current rated bridge would be less likely to breakdown.
Actually, given similar voltage drop specifications across the diodes, it'll generate exactly the same amount of heat, think about it.
