    Can you please elaborate in a bit more detail? It is not clear what you are trying to do.

    with a 10vdc sypply i want to control it from 0 - 10 vdc as a master digipot that feeds 4 individual digipots that control 4 sepatate vsd motor drives.
    Setting the master to eg, 5 volts none of the slaves can go higher than 5 volts> once syncro speed on all 4 drives are set up the master then control speed of all 4 drives

    How much current does one motor require?
    What is the operating voltage range of each motor?
    What is the model number of the motor?

    No digipot will have the current capability to drive your motor.

    Have you put "digipot" into Google? Data sheets with application examples are there.
