March 19 2010 A set of Ethernet-based communication interfaces such as Mechatrolink-3, EtherCAT, Ethernet I/P, Powerlink are available for servo converters  of the Sigma-5 series and the frequency converters of the new 1000 series. Thus these products can be easily and efficiently integrated into the most diverse automation platforms. ProfiNet (I/O, RT and IRT) is currently in development.


Functional safety has a high priority with YASKAWA. Frequency converters and servo converters meet by default STO (safe torques off). Extended safe protecting functions such as SS1, SS2 and SLS are optionally available for servo converters of the Sigma-5 series.
