A Single Drive for All Your Needs with Outstanding Performance

There are opportunities for improvement in most industrial manufacturing facilities and processing plants, including upgrading drive technologies. Yaskawa's variable speed drives provide quality, performance, ease of use, and consistency across a wide range of applications. Consider the Yaskawa A1000: it's a full featured drive providing outstanding quality and performance. Control anything from simple fans and pumps to complex machines.

Yaskawa A1000 DriveExample Applications:

  • Packaging Machines
  • Mixers
  • Conveyors
  • Cut-to-Length
  • Pumps
  • Test Stands
  • Winders
  • Extruders
  • Centrifuges


  • Closed or open loop vector control for outstanding regulation, torque production and position control capability
  • High frequency injection enables high precision open loop control of interior permanent magnet motors
  • Continuous auto-tuning optimizes performance by compensating for changes in motor temperature
  • High slip braking reduces installation cost and reduces the need for dynamic braking resistors
  • Fast acting current and voltage limiters help achieve continous drive operation during periods of excessive demand
  • Communication options for all major industrial networks reduce installation cost and provide high speed control and monitoring. In addition Modbus RTU is embedded as standard.
  • DriveWizard computer software and application sets for easy configuration
  • Embedded safe torque off minimizes downtime for applications requiring occasional intervention
  • Auxiliary control power unit maximizes production time and efficiency by maintaining network communication while main power is removed
  • Embedded function blocks, programmable with DriveWorksEZ, provide additional application flexibilty and the opportunity to eliminate separate controllers
  • USB copy unit and keypad configuration storage provide speed and convenience for duplicate configuration of multiple drives
  • Made with RoHS compliant materials
  • Removable terminal board with configuration storage provides convenient ways of backing up drive configuration
  • Available in a flange version that provides an external heatsink solution with NEMA 12 (dust-tight) integrity on the backside
  • Integrated DC Reactor (standard on 30 HP and larger) for input harmonic reduction
