The GA500 precisely controls induction, permanent magnet, and synchronous reluctance motors providing versatility to run a variety of applications with just one drive. The times of complex motor setup are over. With the new EZ Vector mode, the GA500 can run all of these motor types without comprehensive tuning.

Q: What motors can the GA500 operate?
A: The GA500 can operate an induction motor, permanent magnet motor (internal and surface mount), and synchronous reluctance motor.
Q: Where does the GA500 fit into Yaskawa's family of drives?
A: The GA500 will be a complement to the GA800 as a high-performance, compact, and economical microdrive.
Q: What keypad options are available for the GA500?
A: GA500 offers optional LCD keypads with or without Bluetooth that can be used with the drive. These keypad provides descriptive text, real time clock, and data logging capabilities. The optional keypads can be remote mounted using kit 900-239-230-001.
Q: What is the SCCR of the GA500?
A: The GA500 is suitable for use on a circuit capable of delivering not more than 31 kA RMS symmetrical amperes, 240 V/480 V maximum (dependent on the voltage rating of the drive).
Q: What is the maximum connection distance of the Bluetooth keypad?
A: You can connect via Bluetooth up to 10 m (33 ft) in free air. Any obstructions can reduce this distance.
Q: What is the functional safety rating of the GA500?
A: The GA500 has a safe torque off (STO) circuit that meets SIL3 per IEC 620161 and PLe per ISO 13849-1.
Q: What is the design life of the GA500?
A: The GA500 is designed to last ten years. This is based on 80% load, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week in a 40 ºC ambient temperature.
Q: Do I need an adapter plate when replacing a V1000 with a GA500?
A: The GA500 has the same dimensions and mounting holes as a V1000. No adapter plate is necessary when replacing a V1000 with a GA500.
