Yaskawa Introduces the G5HHP AC Drive with Configurable Features

NEW BERLIN, WIS - Yaskawa Electric America, Inc. announces the availability of the G5HHP AC drive, providing up to 1,750 HP for use in pumps, fans, chillers, mining conveyers, rock crushers/extruders, and more.

According to the company, the G5HHP drive is designed as a modular system providing separate sections for the converter and inverter. This modular layout offers flexibility and allows users to customize the drives from 400 to 1,600 amp ratings, affording a wide array of application options. In addition, the G5HHP drive can be configured with power-related options including circuit breakers, line reactors, filters, and a regenerative front end that meets IEEE-519 harmonic specifications. The standard non-regenerative front end can support a 12, 18, or 24-pulse configuration for harmonic reduction.

The G5HHP is equipped with a serial port using standard Modbus protocol, but can also accommodate DeviceNet, ProfibusDP, Modbus Plus, and other popular communication protocols. The G5HHP contains a user interface with access to all parameters, diagnostics, and operational commands, and is also capable of providing additional control, monitoring, and diagnostic communication options.

Standard software for the G5HHP includes Yaskawa's DriveWizard(TM), which allows the user to remotely upload, download, and monitor drive parameters. The optional CASE(TM) software permits the reconfiguration of drive defaults, establishment of presets for OEM equipment, and the elimination of peripheral controls and PLCs, all of which can be easily flashed to the on-board ROM for increased functionality.

The complete G5HHP drive package is available in a standard NEMA12 FVFF enclosure. Additional enclosure options are also available.
