This procedure serves as a purpose for configuration extraction from an original 590, which can be then placed into a modern 590+.
- On the 590D, check the SERIAL LINK set up for the P3 port
- P3 SETUP – MODE (Tag 130) must be set correctly (for f/w revs 3.x and 4.x use the 'Disabled' setting, for f/w revs 9.x use the 'EIASCII' setting).
- Look at the P3 BAUD RATE – make note of what the rate is
- Open DSE Lite software and make sure the correct communication port is selected:
- Make sure the BAUD RATE is set the same as the P3 port on the 590D
- AUTO baud rate must not be used, it will lock up the com port on the 590
- The port can be unlocked by either changing the selected baud rate or cycling power on the 590
- Click MODULE STATUS and check in the scratchpad
- The first line in the scratchpad tells which version of DSE Lite you are using
- The next lines tell the date, the Database ID
- The bottom line tells which drive and firmware version is connected to the selected COM port
- In the bottom right corner, DSE Lite will show connection, firmware, running(or not running, and BAUD rate.
- Open a blank template for the appropriate drive and firmware
- Choose Command – Extract Drive Parameters
- When the parameters have finished extracting save the file
- 590C and 590D will be firmware 3.x, 4.x or 9.x,
- If migrating your configuration to a 590+, your 590+ will be 5.x, 7.x or 8.x. DO NOT do a full install. After installation enter the motor data and do an AUTOTUNE
