A Single Drive for all Your Needs, with Outstanding Performance and Flexibility!
The A1000 is a full-featured drive, providing outstanding quality, performance, flexibility,
and environmental friendliness through 1000HP. From simple fans and pumps to complex
machine control, A1000 can be the single drive platform for an entire facility. Network
communications, expandable I/O, and feedback are among the many choices. For new
installations or retrofits, the A1000 provides a single robust solution, regardless of your
Enjoy peace of mind by knowing that you are considering a product from Yaskawa, the factory automation
controls company with the highest reputation for quality and reliability. Historically, Yaskawa drives have
demonstrated extremely high reliability with an average MTBF (mean time between failure) of 28 years or
more. The new 1000 series products take reliability to the next level with a calculated design life that is
twice as long as previous generations.
Highly Integrated Design results in fewer parts and
interconnections, reducing the number of failure points.
Component Derating extends the life of any single part
by selecting higher specifications (e.g. voltage, current)
than what a circuit requires for normal operation.
Latest Generation IGBT Power Modules, capable of
four times more thermal cycles than previous designs.
Enhanced Short Circuit Detection and Self
Diagnostics provide additional protection against
severe catastrophic conditions.
In addition, the A1000 is designed for use around the world, and carries agency certifications for all
major geographical regions
500-600V, 3-Phase, Protected Chassis/NEMA 1
Excellent motor drive performance:
A1000 and V1000 are both compact size inverter drives
running induction motors with an output frequency
between 0.0 and 1000.0 Hz.
A1000 also runs permanent magnet motors (open loop).
Built-in functional safety features:
The implemented Safe Torque Off (STO) function replaces
output contactors and signifi cantly improves machine
safety and reliability and provides substantial cost
Easy integration of PLC functionality:
DriveWorksEZ creates a custom drive functionality with just
some mouse clicks and by fast and intuitive programming.
Space saving and compact set-up:
Outstanding power to size ratio and gapless side-by-side
installation reduce the mounting space to a minimum.
Long life design for 10 years of maintenance-free
Fast Acceleration / Deceleration
High peak current capability for rapid start and stop.
Time required for tool changes at spindles is minimised
increasing the time-effi ciency of machine cycles.
