Great things come in small packages!

Fan & Pump Drives

Yaskawa P1000 Fan & Pump Drive

Yaskawa P1000 Fan & Pump Drive (1000 HP): This collection of adjustable frequency drives is designed for variable torque industrial applications like fans and centrifugal pumps. The P1000 drive provides simple, reliable, cost-effective control for variable-torque loads through 1000HP.

System Components

Yaskawa D1000 Regenerative Converter

Yaskawa D1000 Regenerative Converter (5 to 750 HP): Looking for a fully regenerative and/or clean power solution for your multi-drive or single drive system? Look no further. D1000 is your answer.

Unlike passive rectifiers which can only supply power from source to load, the D1000 is capable of delivering power in both directions, and is most beneficial to supply multi-drive or single drive common bus systems that experience significant regeneration. Additionally, the D1000 system includes input harmonic filtering, achieving low distortion levels and improved power factor, which further reduces energy costs and stress on power systems. This clean power solution is achieved without the use of expensive multi-pulse components.


Yaskawa RC5 Regenerative Converter

Yaskawa RC5 Regenerative Converter (5 to 100 HP): The RC5 was one of two line-regeneration products offered by Yaskawa. The RC5 was a cost-effective solution that could replace braking transistor/resistor networks in high duty cycle braking applications.

The RC5 was ideal for applications that had large overhauling loads or made frequent stops such as elevators, centrifuges, test stands, and winders (but do not have input harmonic distortion requirements).

The RC5 Regenerative Unit is a Legacy product and is no longer promoted in the Americas.


Yaskawa R1000 Regenerative Braking Unit

Yaskawa R1000 Regenerative Breaking Unit (3.5 to 300 kW): Looking for a smart and efficient alternative to dynamic braking? Look no further. The R1000 Regenerative Braking Unit is your answer.

Unlike dynamic braking, which dissipates all braking energy in the form of heat, the R1000 avoids wasted energy by delivering it back to your power source for use by other loads. Since the R1000 only transfers power during regeneration (not motoring), it is very economical for regenerative applications, and return on investment is often less than 1 year. Not only does this save energy and money, but it also eliminates the need to safely locate braking resistors.
