Effortlessly integrate frequency converter to network

Yaskawa GA700 network

GA700 is adapted to various factory automation networks as it supports the major industrial communications and connection topologies. Through available built-in protocols and/or dedicated communication options (RS-485 MEMOBUS/Modbus protocol, 115.2 kbit/s communication speeds) you can reduce wiring when connecting to an upper level controller or PLC.

The embedded +24 VDC control power input allows for maintaining the network communication even during main power loss, thus enabling you continuous monitoring and faster start up on power recovery.

Up to five frequency drives can be accessed through just one fieldbus option card, thus providing a cost effective solution with less wiring effort.

Control a variety of motors with one drive

The frequency converter enables you precise control of induction-, permanent magnet- and synchronous reluctance motors, providing versatility to run a wide range of applications with single drive. Moreover, it can run all of these motor types without comprehensive tuning owing to the new EZ vector mode.

In addition to the open loop speed or torque control, you can also use the GA700 for the more advanced closed loop control (CLV-closed loop vector), as it features incremental (PG-X3) and complimentary encoder (PG-B3) connections. Using the feedback from the motor and the drive’s complex control algorithm, the closed loop control allows for highly dynamic and efficient performance across the motor’s full speed range. The AC drive’s high-precision absolute and relative positioning enhance the accuracy of the results.

Benefit from the flexible package design

With its flexible package design the GA700 enables a reliable operation under a variety of environmental conditions. You can put this AC drive in a control cabinet or on a wall, in a clean environment, or in a harsh one.

There are several installation designs available, with many advantages:

The GA700 with a integrated flange design offers easy installation when mounting the heatsink outside the cabinet to reduce cabinet size and cooling equipment.

If you need greater protection from dust particles, the optional Type 12/IP55 heatsink design is available, which reduces cooling requirements resulting in smaller cabinets.

The converter can also be mounted side-by-side with bottom entry wiring to reduce cabinet size.

  • IP20 standard
  • NEMA Type 1 kit optional
  • Coated boards
  • Built-in braking transistor (up to 90 kW)
  • Built-in EMC filter, possible to disable
  • Built-in DC reactor (up from 22 kW [HD])

The GA700 is built to withstand even the harshest and most demanding conditions. This ensures 10 years of maintenance-free operation.

  • The electronics is protected from dust or humidity by PCBs coating, ensuring reliable operation even in harsh environments (IEC 60723-3-3, 3C2, 3S2).
  • You can safely operate the frequency drive in ambient temperatures ranging from -10 °C up to 60 °C. It does not have to be derated up to 50 °C, and full power can be drawn.
  • An option for higher vibration resistance is available for mobile or other applications with high occurrence of vibration without sacrificing reliability.
  • With the built-in dual channel STO (safe torque off) circuit and EDM signal (electronic device monitor), the drive provides the right tools for easy integration of emergency stop functions into machines, even when higher levels of safety are required.
