Yaskawa AC Drives
Yaskawa drives incorporate the latest technological advancements in variable speed AC motor control, made possible by experience and dedication to quality.
With manufacturing facilities in the United States, United Kingdom, Japan, China, and other countries, Yaskawa is the world’s largest manufacturer of variable speed drives, providing solutions through 2250HP. From simple to complex applications, Yaskawa has a variety of drive products to fit your needs.
The Microdrive collection of J1000 and V1000 provides great performance in the most compact and economical packages through 7.5HP and 25HP respectively. In addition, the V1000 is available in an integrated IP66, NEMA / UL Type 4X version for machine mounting or harsh environments.
For advanced features or larger power ratings, Yaskawa offers two different products to fit your needs. The A1000 is a multi-purpose drive delivering up to 1000HP, and provides Yaskawa’s highest level of vector performance including precise control of both induction and permanent magnet motors. For optimized use on fans and pumps, the P1000 is offered through 1000HP.
A1000 and P1000 are also offered in configured and engineered drive packages that mount the drive inside a NEMA/UL Type 1, 12, or 3R enclosure with space for various commonly used options. Yaskawa’s latest addition is the U1000 Industrial Matrix Drive.
With the U1000, Yaskawa incorporates innovative technology into a low-voltage matrix converter to directly convert input AC voltage to output AC voltage. It is ideally suited for industrial applications that require extremely low harmonic distortion, energy savings, safety, and serviceability in a space-saving design.
