The Drives & Motion Division of Yaskawa America (Waukegan, IL) has released the P1000 variable speed drive that provides control for variable-torque loads through 500. Configuration tools include a multi-language LCD display with a real-time clock, parameter storage, fan and pump application presets, and a portable USB copy unit. DriveWizard® computer software delivers configuration, monitoring, and trending functions enhanced by direct connectivity through the drive’s USB port. The drive 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.
The 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 heat sink out the back of any Type 12 enclosure.
