Generally speaking there are similarities between a 590 and 590+ that make an upgrade to a 590+ to be generally straight forward. The configuration (depending on the original 590 drive) can be extracted and placed into a modern 590+ v8 product.
There are differences between the two products that need to be considered however:
- Only the frame 1 & 2 590+'s has an AC input contactor.
- The keypad is detachable on all 590+ drives.
- The 590+ frame 1 & 2 has been repackaged for a smaller footprint.
- The frame 1 590+ has no external field connections for field weakening.
- The thermistor input is isolated on all 590+'s.
- 3-phase and auxiliary voltage connections are located at the bottom of the 590+.
- Digital output capacity has been increased to 100ma.
- Dynamic Brake Contactor, Control transformer are options on the 590+.Note: On frame 1 & 2 the isolated thermistor input is located on the fuse board. On frame 3 and bigger the thermistor input is on the control door.
Additional differences depending on the original 590 you have:
- If the original 590 was a LINK drive the differences extend to the communication protocol. If upgrading from a 590 LINK drive, a redesign of the configuration is needed and a modern protocol selected in this case. This includes, but not limited to, the 590L.
- If your original 590 was a 590SPD, you will need to find a 3ph power supply if upgrading to a 590+. We do not offer single phase input power options on the 590+.
- We do offer single phase DC drives on Parker.com but they are not programmable (50x, 512C, 514C). They can not take your 590SPD configuration (or any configuration file).
