Yaskawa Releases the P1000
Variable Speed Drive
Waukegan, Ill. (July 16, 2012) The Drives & Motion Division of Yaskawa America, Inc. announces the release of the P1000 variable speed drive. The P1000 drive provides simple, reliable, cost-effective control for variable-torque loads through 500 HP and planned expansion through 1000 HP later this year. Specific application features, energy savings, and network connectivity make the P1000 a great choice for industrial fans and pumps.
Exceptional quality is the hallmark of Yaskawa products. Yaskawa drives have demonstrated extremely high reliability with an average MTBF (mean time between failure) of 28 years or more. 1000 series drive products take reliability to the next level with a calculated design life that is twice as long as previous generations.
User-friendly configuration tools, including a multi-language LCD display with a real-time clock, parameter storage, fan and pump application presets, and a portable USB copy unit make programming and configuration simple. DriveWizardŽ computer software delivers configuration, monitoring, and trending functions enhanced by direct connectivity through the P1000's standard USB port.
Energy efficiency is maximized with variable speed control, and the P1000's integrated 12 pulse version reduces harmonic demand from the power system, contributing to a cleaner environment. Additionally, all materials used in the P1000 comply with the directive for Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS).
The case of the non-priming self-primer:
We had supplied a self-priming centrifugal pump to a major chemical company for rail car unloading
of sulfuric acid.
There are three options for unloading rail cars: one is to bottom unload, using gravity or a pump. This is simple pump job, but has hazards if a leak develops in the line. It could be tough to stop.
