YASKAWA AC Drive – A1000 High Performance Vector Control Drive

3/4 – 1000 HP

The A1000 is a full featured drive, providing outstanding quality, performance, flexibility, and environmental friendliness through 1000HP. Enjoy network communications, feedback, and expandable I/O to control anything from simple fans and pumps to complex machines. For new installations or retrofits, the A1000 provides a single robust solution, regardless of your application.

Feature Highlights

  • Closed or open loop vector control for outstanding regulation, torque production, and position control capability.
  • Continuous Auto-tuning optimizes performance by compensating for changes in motor temperature.
  • High Frequency Injection enables high precision open loop control of Interior Permanent Magnet Motors.
  • Fast acting current and voltage limiters help achieve continuous drive operation during periods of excessive demand.
  • High Slip Braking reduces installation cost and the need for dynamic braking resistors
  • Communication options for all major industrial networks provides high speed control and monitoring, reducing installation cost.
  • DriveWizard computer software and Application Sets for easy configuration.
  • Auxiliary Control Power Unit maximizes production time and efficiency by maintaining network communication while main power is removed.
  • Embedded Safe Torque Off minimizes downtime for applications requiring occasional intervention (SIL CL2, PLd, Category 3).
  • Embedded function blocks, programmable with DriveWorks EZ, provide additional application flexibility and the opportunity to eliminate separate controllers.
  • USB Copy Unit and Keypad configuration storage provide speed and convenience for duplicate configuration of multiple drives.
  • Removable terminal board with configuration storage provides convenience of configuration backup.
  • Made with RoHS compliant materials.
  • Integrated DC Reactor (standard on 30HP and larger) for input harmonic reduction.
  • Kinetic Energy Braking allows drive to remain in control during momentary power losses.
  • Integrated 12 Pulse version provides a cost effective solution for low harmonics.
  • Flange version provides NEMA 12 backside integrity when mounting with heatsink external.

  1. Normal Duty overload current rating is 120% of rated output current for 60 seconds; Heavy Duty overload current rating is 150% of rated output current for 60 seconds
  2. Horsepower rating is based on standard NEMA B 4-pole motor design as represented in NEC table 430.150 Full-Load Current, Three-Phase Alternating Current Motors. Also, listed power ratings assumes three-phase input. For single-phase input applications, consult Manual Supplement TOEPYEASUP03 for proper sizing.
