For safe operation even in harsh environments, Yaskawa has extended its A1000 series of frequency inverters with IP54-compliant models. There are two product variants to choose from: devices in their own IP54-compliant housing or devices that can be easily plugged into an appropriate housing.
In the power range from 18,5 to 90 kW, they each have their own application-specific advantages: the variant with housing can be installed directly in dusty or damp environments and thus close to the drive. It is particularly easy to retrofit an existing system.
The second variant, on the other hand, is suitable for implementing IP54 requirements in small control cabinets. In addition to these application-specific advantages, the IP54-compliant new developments also offer all the functions of the A1000 frequency inverter series: They enable the operation of asynchronous and permanent-magnet synchronous machines with or without encoder feedback. They are suitable for simple applications as well as for more complex drives with synchronized operation and positioning.
