Background: The FR-A700 Series was launched in 2006 as the successors to the FR-A500 Series. The A700 series was available in a number of configurations and voltages 200, 400 and 600V. This series has been retired and replaced by the FR-A800 Series which is currently available.
Please Note: FR-A701 models with built-in power regeneration functions and FR-A770 (690V) models will remain current products until a suitable replacement is introduced.
Service Life: Introduced (2006) - Discontinued (2016)
Migration Info: The FR-A800 Series is a suitable drop in replacement in most cases. For capacities larger than 125, 450 and 300HP (200, 400 and 600V respectively) there are both design and dimensional changes to reconsider. Please consult with your local Mitsubishi representative to discuss your options.
Important notes: Part numbers for the FR-A800 Series are based on the ‘SLD’ rating of the drives and DC Link chokes for larger capacities (over 60, 75 and 100HP (200, 400 and 600V respectively) are sold separately to better match the current requirements. Please consult the FR-A800 product webpage, Pocket Guide L-VH-04063 and life-cycle announcement PLA-004 for more details.
