Yaskawa CIMR-VU4A0018FAA

The Yaskawa CIMR-VU4A0018FAA, part of the renowned V1000 series, is an advanced vector control drive engineered for high reliability and efficiency in demanding industrial applications. Known for its compact design and straightforward installation, this drive offers cutting-edge features suitable for diverse industry needs.

Technical Features:

The Yaskawa CIMR-VU4A0018FAA supports an input voltage range of 380-480 VAC, making it compatible with a wide spectrum of industrial power systems. This adaptability guarantees reliable performance across diverse environments and voltage standards. With a maximum frequency of 400 Hz, the CIMR-VU4A0018FAA offers superior control over motor speed, making it suitable for applications requiring high precision and dynamic response.

The Yaskawa CIMR-VU4A0018FAA comes equipped with built-in operator controls, offering users straightforward and intuitive management of the drive's functions. Rated at NEMA 1, the CIMR-VU4A0018FAA is intended for general-purpose indoor use, offering basic protection against dust and minor environmental hazards. This rating makes it suitable for numerous industrial settings requiring moderate protection.

The Yaskawa CIMR-VU4A0018FAA features a dual braking system, incorporating both DC injection and dynamic braking transistors. This setup ensures influential and controlled motor deceleration, enhancing protection and performance, particularly in applications demanding rapid stopping and accurate control.

Although the CIMR-VU4A0018FAA lacks closed-loop control, its open-loop control system offers reliable and efficient operation for applications not requiring feedback systems.

The Yaskawa CIMR-VU4A0018FAA lacks AC line regenerative capabilities, meaning it cannot feed energy back into the power grid. This makes it ideal for standard applications where energy regeneration is not a priority.

The drive boasts an impressive efficiency, typically greater than 95%. This high level of efficiency ensures that the drive minimizes energy losses during operation. The cooling system of the CIMR-VU4A0018FAA is engineered to maintain optimal operating temperatures, thereby extending the drive's longevity and reliability.

Ambient Conditions:

The CIMR-VU4A0018FAA is designed to operate efficiently across various ambient service temperatures, ensuring reliability in various environmental conditions. For units with a NEMA 1 rating, the drive operations optimally between -10°C to 40°C.

For open chassis models, the Yaskawa CIMR-VU4A0018FAA can perform within a temperature spectrum of -10°C to 50°C. This flexibility makes it suitable for diverse industrial settings with varying temperature requirements.

The CIMR-VU4A0018FAA operates efficiently at altitudes up to 3300 feet above sea level. For elevations beyond this, performance can be sustained through derating, making the drive suitable for diverse geographic areas.

Safety Precautions:

When installing and operating the Yaskawa CIMR-VU4A0018FAA, it's essential to adhere to stringent safety and precautionary measures to ensure both the longevity of the drive and the safety of personnel.

Always disconnect the drive from the power supply before any maintenance or installation to avoid electric shock or injury. Ensure the power is completely off and locked out before beginning work.

Proper grounding of the CIMR-VU4A0018FAA is essential to prevent electrical hazards and maintain stable operation. Install the drive in a well-ventilated area with sufficient clearance to prevent overheating and allow proper air circulation.
