Yaskawa V1000-series drives feature maintenance monitors, on-line tuning and RoHS compliance
Yaskawa engineers’ passion for making V1000 the best drive to keep business in motion shows through in every feature. Its design features maintenance monitors to ensure the drive’s health, on-line tuning to maintain harmony with the motor, application presets to make installation faster and easier, and RoHS compliance to ensure environmental responsibility. The V1000 can also be stacked side-by-side, due to its improved heat-sink technology. The EN954-1 Safety Category 3 safety input to disconnect the motor at the first sign of trouble is standard. And they did it all using fewer parts than the V1000’s predecessor, ensuring fewer chances for failure.
“Our new V1000 line of AC drives redefines the way businesses cost-effectively maintain the tempo of motion,” said Todd Ammerman, product manager for the V1000. “We engineered the V1000 to be smaller, be more precise to eek out every bit of production from conveyors to food and beverage machines. It uses less energy, is quieter, and its removable control terminal block speeds installation.”
The V1000 makes controlling motion easy, but it also makes controlling costs easy, by saving companies as much as 72% in energy usage when used for HVAC air handling duties. It also operates with near-servo precision, making sure that your other motion controls are as efficient as they can be.
Business fluctuates but must always keep moving. The V1000 comes from the company that virtually defines rhythm in the industry. In fact, PCS Phosphate, of Winter Springs, FL, which runs its plants on Yaskawa drives, recently reported three drives had been running 24/7 for more than 18 years.
“Our people are obsessed with helping customers keep their business in motion,” said Mike Knapek, senior vice president of sales and marketing at YEA. “If an AC drive fails, it always means money lost for our clients. The solution to that problem? We build drives that virtually never fail.”
