Z1000U HVAC Matrix Drive


Yaskawa America's Drives & Motion Division has announced the release of the Z1000U HVAC Matrix Drive, designed to provide harmonic mitigation, power factor control, and energy savings in a single compact package.  

Unlike conventional drives, Yaskawa’s matrix technology employs a system of nine bi-directional switches that are arranged in a matrix to convert a three-phase AC input voltage directly into a three phase AC output voltage.  

This eliminates the need for a rectifying circuit and a DC bus that are used in traditional AC drive inverters. Matrix technology reduces total harmonic distortion levels to less than the IEEE compliance standard of 5%, without the need for reactors and filters. The result is a smoother current waveform that reduces stress on the system power supply and infrastructure.

Additionally, reduced distortion improves displacement power factor to 0.98 through the entire load and speed range, reducing energy costs.

Because it is a member of the Z1000 family, the HVAC Matrix Drive provides the same user experience for those already familiar with commissioning and maintaining the standard Z1000.
