Question: Can I reuse the option card that's installed on my V1000 on the GA500? Or do I need to purchase a new card?

Most V1000 option cards can be reused on the GA500. Attached is a compatibility matrix for your reference.

Whether reusing an existing or purchasing a new option card, you will require the option card carrier JOHB-GA50 to be able to mount the option card onto the GA500.

If flashing of the option card is recommended or required, please contact your local distributor or Yaskawa Technical Support for assistance.
