Crane - Hoist

Crane and Hoists with Yaskawa Servo Drive Products

Yaskawa A1000 AC Drives for Crane and Hoist provide an easy solution to the special demands of crane applications, for hoisting but also traveling movements. It’s proven motor control secures enough torque at any condition while numerous valuable features like the built-in brake control, overload detection and others make sure the load is safely moved.


  • 200% Starting Torque and 150% Overload for 1 min. secures reliable movement also under heavy load conditions
  • Full torque at zero speed* for brake operation during standstill increases brake lifetime and softens the movement (*requires speed sensor)
  • Smooth motor operation reduces wear and tear of machines while transported goods are treated more gently
  • Built-In brake control for safe brake operation
    • Independent Open/Close settings for optimal timing
    • Motor circuit check before brake lifting
    • Brake feedback signal monitoring
  • Automatic overload tripping prevention by lengthening acceleration and limiting the speed at heavy load condition
  • Ultra-Lift Function shortens cycle times and increases productivity by speeding up the hoist at light load conditions
  • Built-in overload / overweight detection and over-travel limit prevent dangerous operation states
  • Automatic load sharing between multiple drives for long and cross travel without tilting
  • Built-in functional safety (STO, Safe Torque Off) does away with motor contactors reducing cost while improving machine reliability
