1/2 - 500 Horsepower The Ultimate Drive Solution
This innovative drive utilizes 3 level control to offer the best solution for challenging installations. Yaskawa is the only manufacturer to offer a low voltage drive with this architecture. 3 level technology minimizes drive induced problems associated with long motor cables and premature motor bearing failures. In addition, overall electrical noise is greatly reduced, resulting in the most problem free installations. Not only does the Yaskawa G7 deliver this exclusive advantage, but it also provides high flexibility and excellent vector performance for control of speed, torque, and position, available in ratings through 500HP.
The G7 / Configured package provides a G7 drive in either a NEMA 12, UL Type 1 (IP22 or IP54 depending on the exact rating) enclosure, with space for factory-mounted and wired options, such as reactors, filters, circuit breakers, fuses, network communications and I/O cards etc. For more information on how the G7 drive solves the installation problems associated with IGBT switching, please review the Machine Design Article.
