The Drives & Motion division of Yaskawa America, Inc. (Waukegan, IL) has introduced the GA500 Industrial Microdrive, reflecting Yaskawa’s continued customer commitment to providing sustainable, flexible and easy-to-use products. It is designed to meet RoHS2, providing a sustainable and an environmentally friendly drive. Its TUV safety rating allows our customers to meet the most stringent safety ratings for their machine and provides a long mission time for the life of their equipment. Specifically:
- The GA500 also provides customers a wide range of flexibility.
- The drive is rated up to 40 HP and can be applied to 240 VAC single-phase, 240 VAC three-phase, or 480 VAC three-phase incoming power.
- The GA500 can be programmed without main power applied, which means users can set up the drive so it is ready to run before main power is available.
- A highly visual LED status ring provides drive status at a glance.
Yaskawa’s mobile app, DriveWizard Mobile, provides the ability to program and/or monitor the GA500 through mobile devices like a smartphone or tablet. DriveWizard Mobile instantly accesses the Yaskawa Drive Cloud, providing a safe location to store drive information with instant access anywhere.
