The J1000 AC drive is said to be the most compact in its class, requiring as little as 30 percent the space. Designed with fewer parts, its Mean Time Between Failure is rated at 28 years. Ownership costs can also be minimized through side-by-side mounting and the ability to operate a larger motor with the normal duty rating. Overexcitation braking reduces stop times without the need for external braking resistors. Models range from 0.125 to 7.5 hp.
