Yaskawa Changes the Game with the U1000 Matrix Drive

2018-11-21T12:33:30+00:00March 2nd, 2018|Informational, New Products|

Matrix Designed VFDs The Yaskawa U1000 Matrix Drive is a relatively new VFD that was designed as a Clean Power VFD and solution for regenerative power applications. The drive provides low harmonics, with less than 5% iTHD at the input terminals of the VFD and is ideal for a host of industrial applications. The design of the drive obviates the DC bus by using nine bi-directional IGBTs (insulated-gate bipolar transistors) in a matrix arrangement to generate the [...]
