    Sensorless Control of PM Motors Capability

    Yaskawa offers solutions customized for your application in an incredibly compact, technologically advanced, environmentally responsible package capable of driving a synchronous motor.

    Two drives in one

    V1000 runs not only induction motors, but synchronous motors like IPM and SPM motors as well. Get a single drive for all your application needs, and save on spare parts.

    Note : See product specifications for information on motor precision.
               The variable torque ratio of synchronous motors is 1 to 10.

    Top of Its Class

    Impressive Torque Characteristics

    V1000 is the first in its class fully equipped with current vector control. Current Vector control providing a powerful starting torque of 200% at 0.5 Hz∗ and precise torque limit operations. The motor Auto-Tuning function saves valuable start up time and assures high performance operation at the highest efficiency.
    ∗ :     Using a Yaskawa induction motor under 3.7 kW set for Heavy Duty torque performance.

    Increased braking power during deceleration.

    Faster deceleration time with overexcitation braking.∗
    ∗ :    Example shown is for a 400 V 3.7 kW drive without braking resistor.
        Circumstances depends on the motor and load.

    No more trouble from power loss.

    V1000 is fully equipped with speed search and KEB Ride-Thru functions for your application needs, whether running an induction motor or permanent magnet motor.

    • Speed Search Method
      Easily restart the motor without cumbersome speed sensors. Perfect for fan, blowers, and other rotating, fluid-type applications.


    Speed Search performs smooth restart by finding the coasting motors speed.

    • KEB Ride-Thru
      Drive continues operation by using motor regen. Perfect for HVAC


    Note :    Requires a sensor to detect when power loss occurs. Load conditions may still trip a fault and cause the motor to coast.
