RoHS2 compliant and TUV safety rated, the drive is [UL] rated to accept DC as its primary power source. The GA500 can operate a variety of motors, which include induction, permanent magnet (SPM and IPM), and synchronous reluctance (SynRM). The GA500 offers a variety of industrial protocols, including EtherNet/IP, PROFINET, Modbus TCP/IP, and EtherCAT. DeviceNet, PROFIBUS, and Modbus RTU (embedded) are also available. The drive can be programmed without main power applied using Yaskawa’s mobile app, DriveWizard Mobile.
