Variable Frequency Drives

Yaskawa variable frequency drives cover every automation application need in the industrial plant and incorporate the latest technological advancements in variable frequency motor speed control, made possible by experience and dedication to quality in design and manufacturing. The general purpose drives collection offers full-featured and versatile variable speed drives for every automation application need in the industrial plant. Demands for efficient production and better maintainability are on the rise, spurred by global competition. Yaskawa variable frequency drive products have earned a reputation for high performance, high functionality, and high quality.

GA800 Variable Frequency Drives

GA800 variable frequency AC drives provide the ultimate combination of power, ease of use, flexibility, and performance. In addition to its exceptional torque production and precise control, the GA800’s high-resolution display and connection to any mobile device allow for effortless setup. Whether an application requires simple control, advanced network communications, or functional safety, the GA800 can meet all variable speed needs. GA800 variable speed AC drives are available in 240 VAC Three Phase (1 to 150 HP) and 480 VAC Three Phase (1 to 600 HP) models.

The GA800 Configured package provides a GA800 in a UL Type 1 or UL Type 12 or UL Type 3R enclosure, with space for several commonly used options, such as reactors, circuit breakers and more. This package is designed to be flexible in providing the features and options commonly requested, as well as rugged and reliable for tough industrial environments. A variety of enclosure options provide the right environmental protection.


  • High-resolution multi-language display with setup wizards and data logging.
  • Bluetooth and DriveWizard Mobile for convenient and easy interaction.
  • Communicate with GA800 via power from a PC or mobile device.
  • Store drive data locally or push to/retrieve from the Yaskawa cloud.
  • Programming without main power through embedded USB port.
  • DriveWizard Desktop for comprehensive configuration and monitoring.
  • DriveWorks EZ (embedded function blocks) provides extra flexibility, otherwise accomplished in a separate controller.
  • Closed or open loop vector control for outstanding regulation and torque production.
  • Fast-acting motor control functions provide near tripless operation.
  • Popular network connections provide robust control and monitoring with system controllers.
  • Embedded auxiliary control power input (24V) maximizes production time and efficiency by maintaining network communication while main power is removed.
