Company Profile

Yaskawa America, Inc. Drives & Motion Division

Yaskawa is the leading global manufacturer of low and medium voltage variable frequency drives, servo systems, machine controllers and industrial robots. Our standard products, as well as tailor-made solutions, are well known and have a high reputation for outstanding quality and reliability.  

We’ve produced millions of drives to operate motors, meet exact system demands and reliably save energy.  Our variable frequency drives supply fresh air and water to countless people all over the world. No other manufacturer puts its products through as many tests, or as arduous a testing process, as Yaskawa. All printed circuit boards are functionally tested while under power. All Yaskawa products are 100% tested under full current. Yaskawa conducts its own product qualification testing in its ISO-certified test lab. Products are tested not only under normal conditions, but also for the following:

  • Extreme temperature/humidity
  • Vibration
  • Package drop
  • Input voltage tolerance
  • Noise immunity
  • Electrical insulation stress
  • Under/over voltage protection
  • Momentary power loss
  • Output short circuit protection
  • Overload protection
  • Ground fault protection
  • Washdown       
  • Input/output phase loss
  • Power on/off and start-up iterations

Introducing the FP605 Industrial Fan and Pump Drive: 
Our latest offering, the FP605 industrial fan/pump drive, builds on the successful legacy established by the P1000 drive. Like our GA800 and GA500, the FP605 uses flexibility, sustainability, and ease of use to make complicated tasks simple.

The FP605 shows its flexibility by providing a drive solution for all environments.   It can run any motor type, accommodating hardware and network control solutions, with a simple installation procedure.

        Drives for every environment

  • IP20/UL Type 1: 3 to 60 HP @ 240 V; 3 to 125 HP @ 480 V
  • IP20/Protected Chassis: 75 to 150 HP @ 240 V; 150 to 600 HP @ 480 V
  • IP55/UL Type 12: 3 to 40HP @ 240 V; 3 to 100 HP @ 480 V
  • IP55/UL Type 12 with Switch: 3 to 40 HP @ 240 V; 3 to 75 HP @ 480 V

        Flexible solutions

  • -10°C to +60°C ambient
  • Side-by-side mounting
  • UL Type 1 kits for IP20/Protected Chassis drives
  • External heatsink flange mounting (UL Type 1 or UL Type 12)
  • Compatible with all major network communication protocols


The FP605 proves its sustainability with its integrated Functional Safety capability, environmentally-friendly materials, and, as always, Yaskawa’s durable and long-lasting quality and design.

  • 10-year maintenance free operation
  • Compliance with global certifications and standards
  • Built-in (5% split or 3% positive bus DC link choke)  line impedance for harmonic reduction
  • Embedded STO functional safety maximizes production uptime
  • Conformal coating for circuit board protection
