Yaskawa America, Inc: Variable speed drive
Designed for industrial fans and pumps, the P1000 variable speed drive from the Drives & Motion Division of Yaskawa America, Inc. provides simple, reliable, cost-effective control for variable-torque loads through 500 HP and planned expansion through 1000 HP.
Yaskawa drives have demonstrated extremely high reliability with an average MTBF (mean time between failure) of 28 years or more. 1000 series drive products provide a calculated design life that is twice as long as previous generations. User-friendly configuration tools, including a multi-language LCD display with a real-time clock, parameter storage, fan and pump application presets, and a portable USB copy unit make programming and configuration simple. DriveWizard computer software delivers configuration, monitoring, and trending functions enhanced by direct connectivity through the P1000’s standard USB port. A significant quantity of control points are included as standard. For applications requiring more functionality, the P1000 offers three expansion ports for additional I/O, feedback, and network communications, including DeviceNet, EtherNet/IP, Modbus TCP/IP, Profibus-DP, PROFINET, BACnet, and Lonworks. Energy efficiency is maximized with variable speed control, and the P1000’s integrated 12-pulse version reduces harmonic demand from the power system, contributing to a cleaner environment. Additionally, all materials used in the P1000 comply with the directive for Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS). The P1000 drive is available in 200-240VAC Three Phase 50/60 Hz (up to 175 HP), 380-480VAC Three Phase 50/60 Hz (up to 500 HP), and 500-600VAC Three Phase 50/60Hz (up to 250 HP) ratings. All ratings are available in a flange configuration that allows for mounting the drive with its heatsink out the back of any Type 12 enclosure. In addition, the P1000 is designed for use worldwide, and carries agency certifications for all major geographical regions.
