AC Microdrives for Industrial Applications

GA500 Standard

More than 100 years of experience with driving electric motors has  led Yaskawa to develop products which perfectly combine technical superiority with easy handling.

The latest result of this evolution is the new GA500 microdrive. Compact in size and flexible in terms of motor type and connectivity, the GA500 is designed to easily master nearly any application
