The Yaskawa U1000 Industrial Matrix motor drive uses a direct AC-to-AC, input-to-output power conversion that inherently provides low input harmonics and full 100% regeneration. The result is a design that provides a high level of efficiency, easy installation, and a high level of reliability. In this podcast, Chris Jaszczolt, Matrix Drive Product Manager at Yaskawa America Inc., Waukegan, IL (yaskawa.com), describes how the U1000 design functions and the many benefits it provides.
