Our Commitment to You

Flexibility, ease of use and a sustainable design for the best value proposition in your application

Effortless network integration

GA700 drives support all the major industrial communications and connection topologies (ring, star, line, etc.) to adapt to various factory automation networks. Reduce wiring when connecting to an upper level controller or PLC through available built-in protocols and/or dedicated communication options.

One for all

The GA700 precisely controls induction motors, permanent magnet motors and synchronous reluctance motors providing versatility to run a variety of applications with just one drive. The times of complex motor set-up are over. With the new EZ vector mode, the GA700 can run all of these motor types without comprehensive tuning.

Quick & Easy Set-up

The GA700 provides a user programming experience with an intuitively designed keypad and tactile user interface. Self-guiding navigation menus and start-up wizards make the programming and set-up faster and easier than ever. With DriveWizard Mobile the GA700 can easily be managed and controlled from your smartphone or tablet.

Mobile Device Connectivity

Mobile device connectivity is achieved through using the built-in USB port or wireless communication with the Bluetooth® LCD keypad option.


The GA700 further enhances the programming experience with DriveWorksEZ®. DriveWorksEZ® offers an icon-based, drag-and-drop graphical environment to add programmable functions that can tailor the drive to meet various machine and application requirements without the cost of external controllers, such as PLCs or additional controller hardware options.
