Beat the Clock Banner


The "Beat the Clock" challenge proves anybody can easily connect a Yaskawa Variable Frequency Drive to a Rockwell PLC in 60 seconds or less.

Fast Easy

How much effort is required to integrate a Yaskawa drive into a Rockwell PLC?
We want to educate our customers and let them prove to themselves it's not that hard.
In fact, it's super fast and really easy. To get an idea of how fast and easy this process can be, see the videos below.
